Students can generate a statement-on-demand in Cardinal Pay beginning on June 15.  Prior to that date, students receiving merit or need-based aid should accept or decline their awards in Cardinal Station, as awards will not appear in Cardinal Pay until this step is complete.  Students should also consider granting access to Cardinal Pay to anyone who will be responsible for making payments toward tuition or who may need to discuss their student account with university staff.

To supplement your financial assistance, many families choose to pay a portion of their remaining cost of attendance using the monthly payment plan. You can find additional information about utilizing the payment plan at the links below.
