How to Pay Fees
It is the student’s responsibility to determine the balance due on their account and render payment of the full balance by the fee payment deadlines. Students with an outstanding balance on their account after fee deadlines are subject to class cancellation and holds. If classes are canceled, the student will be notified by e-mail.
Students with sufficient authorized financial aid or scholarships to pay for ALL charges will automatically have their schedules validated and receive an email notification. However, it is the student's responsibility to review their account at EACH fee payment deadline to ensure no additional payments are due (i.e., account changes due to class schedule adjustments, financial aid removal, etc.).
Invoices are not mailed, but eBills (electronic invoices) are posted online each semester in the VSU Student Online Account Center, after the early registration period has ended. Dates that eBills are made available may be viewed from the Bursary Calendar.
