There are three options for payment:
Full Payment by Student
Full Pay by Credit – allowed if financial aid or prior payments result in a zero or credit balance.
Monthly Installment Plan – payments will be automatically drafted from a checking account or credit card account that you enter on the system. We strongly recommend that students complete Financial Check-In early each semester to take full advantage of all months of payment plan options.
Since all students are required to complete Financial Check-In each semester by the deadline, we encourage you to log into ASIST early.
For additional details on Resident Payment Plans please click HERE.
Students should check the Financial Check-In section of ASIST monthly to watch for any needed adjustment to keep payments on track with the balance. Adjustments are needed whenever changes occur with your financial aid or on your student account. Balance or installment plan changes can be caused by new loans, other changed financial aid or new miscellaneous charges posted to the student’s account. The payment plan will not be automatically adjusted - the system will always draft the last confirmed amount in accordance with the contract. It is the student’s responsibility to confirm amounts (and updated amounts) through Financial Check-In at least 5 days prior to the next draft date.
CHANGING DRAFT ACCOUNT INFORMATION
The student can change the account information up to five days prior to the draft by going back through Financial Check-In, selecting and agreeing to the Check-In Contract and entering new account information on the next page and clicking on the "Complete Financial Check-In" button and view the new last four digits on the Check-In receipt page. Updated information must be made 5 days prior to the draft date. The student can call Student Accounts with updates 5 days prior to draft date. A fee of $25 is charged to have your information updated manually.
PAYMENT RETURNS OR DECLINES
It is the responsibility of student and/or the person financially responsible for the student’s account to make sure that all bank or credit card account information is up-to-date and that the account has sufficient funds at the time of the withdrawal and can be drafted from without daily limitations. If an account becomes overdue, the student will be contacted via email by Liberty to their webmail account. He or she must respond to this email.
