Student Accounts Functions
Coordinating billing, posting payments made on student accounts, managing the monthly payment plan, processing financial aid payments and coordinating payments with third-party sponsors.

SUNY Cortland has been notified that the College's insurance carrier has declined to underwrite a policy for the 2013-14 academic year. All students, other than international students or students who will be studying abroad, wishing to purchase insurance will be responsible for securing their own coverage. International students and students studying abroad are covered under a different policy. Such students are required to have adequate coverage and, if needed, can purchase coverage through the school. More details.
In an effort to conserve both natural resources and reduce printing and postage expenses, we do not mail bills. Your myRedDragon account is the official location where we will post your billing statement. Email reminders will be sent to your Cortland preferred email address each time a billing statement is posted. It is important that you keep your in box available and check both your email notification and your account regularly for changes in charges, financial aid, or other billed items. For directions on how to view/print your bill, please see Beginner's Guide.
Federal regulations stipulate that accounts belong to students and that we must bill the student as the primary account holder. However, students who have parents who are assisting them with payments of their bills should create authorized user accounts for any parent or guardian on QuikPay® as soon as possible. In this way, your authorized user(s) will also receive email notification each time a billing statement is posted. See Billing/Payment Information for directions on setting up authorized payers.

Allowing Someone Else to Pay Your Bill
For directions on how to "authorize" non-students (parents) access to student billing and account information, please refer to the Authorized Payers portion of our Billing/Payment Information page. Providing such access will also enable authorized payers to receive the same email notification students receive every time a bill is generated.
