Your Aid & Your Bill
You may view your account statement in early July for the fall semester and early November for spring semester, after you have registered for classes.
What does a negative balance on my eBill mean?
- If the amount of financial aid disbursed is greater than your charges, then you will see a negative balance on your account.
- This means a refund will be paid to the student. Refunds are processed on the first day of class at the earliest.
- You may use this refund check to buy books or for other expenses.
Billing and Aid
- The eBill will reflect the student’s “estimated financial aid.”
- Estimated aid includes the total aid which the student has accepted.
- You must log in to MyCharlotte and accept the awards you have been offered to ensure that those funds are included as estimated aid.
How much do I pay?
- If the total charges exceed the estimated aid, you must pay the difference before the due date.
- If the aid exceeds the charges and there are no outstanding charges from a previous semester, the bill should reflect $0 in the “Pay This Amount” field. You can expect a refund of the excess aid.
- You can only use Financial Aid to pay for charges during the designated term
- You must pay a prior semester balance before the billing due date.
- Even if the current semester’s aid will generate a refund, you must pay prior term charges out-of-pocket before the billing due date.
- If you don’t pay the amount due, you will be dropped from all courses before the start of the term.
- If your schedule is canceled, you will be able to re-register for courses until the add/drop date and you must satisfy payment requirements or your courses will be permanently canceled for the term.
