CSU is launching an electronic billing system and one payment due date for each semester starting this fall in order to save money and the environment.
As one of student government President Dan Gearhart and Vice President Tim Holeâ€™s campaign promises, the e-billing system will send e-mail notifications to students at their rams.colostate.edu address when their monthly billing statements are ready to view on RAMweb, according to an e-mail from Student Financial Services employee Christie Leighton.
Students have the option to create an additional e-mail account if they want parents or others to receive the same notification and view their statements online. Students can create an e-billing address during registration and maintain it on RAMweb.
Also starting Fall 2010, students will receive a bill in August for tuition, student fees, residence hall charges, health insurance and other institutional charges. This bill is due on Sept. 10. Anything billed on a subsequent statement is due the 10th of the following month.
Generating the fall university billing statements in August will allow financial aid to appear on the first statement of the semester, Leighton said in the e-mail. The same is true of the spring semester during which the statement will be generated in January, instead of December. The new due date for this bill is February.
Under the change, students and their families can start paying their bill one month later and provide a presentation of educational expenses on their 1098-T tax forms.
