The University will bill you for tuition, fees, on-campus housing, and other direct expenses. Financial aid will cover some — or sometimes all — of those expenses, reducing the amount that you will have to pay.
Note these exceptions:
To calculate the amount you will owe:
. .Your Student Bill
– Grants and Scholarships Awarded (do not include your own outside/private scholarships)
– Net Loans
. .Amount You Will Need to Pay
If the above “Amount You Will Need to Pay” is a negative number (that is, if your financial aid exceeds your total Cashier’s Office bill), you will receive a refund of this difference. REFUNDS WILL NOT BE RELEASED UNTIL AFTER SCHOOL BEGINS EACH TERM.
To see your current outstanding Student Accounts balance, please access your ConnectCarolina Student Center pages. Click “Pay Bills/Manage Student Finances” to view your transactions, including financial aid that has been applied toward your charges.
Direct Deposit allows Student Accounts and University Receivables to electronically deposit your financial aid refund to your personal checking or savings account. It is the fastest method to make your refund available to you. The Cashier’s Office strongly encourages students expecting a refund use Direct Deposit. Follow these instructions to sign up for Direct Deposit.
If your financial aid does not cover the entire balance of your bill, you are responsible for paying the difference. Visit the Cashier’s Office to learn about paying your bill.
