Other Charges & Who to Contact

Many departments are the source of charges to a student's account. Some of these, such as tuition charges or dining charges, are easily understood.  In many cases, though, Student Financial Services does not usually have any detail about when or why a specific charge was incurred. For instance, the Bookstore may refer a charge to us 1 to 2 weeks after it was incurred, and there is not an itemized receipt in the charges they refer.  Please see the table below to determine which department has the information you seek.

For legal reasons, the department placing the charge may not be able to provide information to anyone other than the student, even if the student is a legal dependent. To give permission for SFS to speak with someone other than the student regarding his or her account, the student may complete an Authorization to Release Financial Information.
