What is Financial Check-In?

Financial Check-In is required of all students each semester they are taking courses. It is the process by which students confirm their course schedule, charges, financial aid, any discounts or military funding, and payment arrangements are correct before securing enrollment in courses. Since Financial Check-In is the final step in the registration process, it is vital that Financial Check-In is completed by the deadline. Failure to do so can result in your courses being dropped and/or a $150 late fee being assessed. 

How do I complete Financial Check-In?

As a military student, you will need to submit any paperwork needed to set up your military benefits to ensure the documents are processed and posted on your account before you complete Financial Check-In. If your paperwork is submitted late, you may not have all of your discounts and aid available when you go to complete Financial Check-In.
