Student Accounts & Billing

Your account begins to incur charges after you have registered for courses or signed up for housing or meal plans.

Your Student Account

  • Charges for the fall semester begin showing on your account in early July
  • Charges for the spring semester begin showing on your account in November
  • The University does not mail paper bills. Account balance eBills are sent to the student’s university email
  • If you are a parent and want to view your student’s account, the student must add you as an Authorized User

To view the current charges on your account, follow these instructions:

  1. Log in to MyCharlotte

When is my payment due?

  • Full payment is due by the payment due date shown on your account
  • Students are responsible for making sure that the total amount due is covered by the payment due date either by financial aid, a payment plan, or payment in full
  • If your account balance or installment is not covered in full by the due date, your classes will be at risk of being canceled
  • View payment due dates

Explanation of Charges

Estimated Financial Aid
  • Your account will reflect “estimated financial aid”
  • Estimated aid includes pending aid which the student has accepted
  • Students must complete all requirements/documentation to ensure that those funds pay and are applied to your account

Authorized & Disbursed Aid
  • Authorized Aid is your accepted financial aid, including loans, that will be applied to your account no more than 10 days prior to the first day of classes
  • Disbursed Aid is the total amount of aid that has been applied (credited) to your account

Health Insurance
  • All students are charged for health insurance each semester
  • If you already have health insurance, you may waive your health insurance here
  • Please allow three weeks for your submitted health insurance waiver to be processed
  • The Health Insurance Premium will stay as a listed charge on the account
    • If waived, a waiver for the same amount will be posted, canceling out the cost

Niner Course Pack
  • Provides all required course materials to students before the first day of class
  • All students are enrolled in the program automatically
  • The cost is $20 per credit hour per term
  • Students can opt-out of the program
  • Charges are non-refundable after the opt-out deadline

Prior Balances
  • Financial aid can only be used to pay for charges during the designated term
  • Any prior semester balance that is owed must be paid before the billing due date
  • Even if the current semester’s aid will generate a refund, the student must pay prior term charges out of pocket before the billing due date
