threePayments and Financial Aid Received

Any deposits paid as part of the admission process will be reflected in this column. No financial aid will have been received by our office and applied toward a student's charges at the time a semester bill is printed, except in very rare instances.

FourAnticipated Financial Aid

In order to be considered anticipated, the aid must have been applied for via the FAFSA, awarded by the Financial Aid Office, and accepted by the student via myRedDragon.

You may not yet have accepted an award package so this column may be blank or "incomplete" on your actual bill. Therefore, you may still have additional amounts that will serve as a credit toward a bill, but you should consult with the Financial Aid Office.

In the event additional aid is posted to an account as anticipated, a new bill will NOT be generated. Instead, you should monitor your myRedDragon account for new balance due amounts.

fiveBalance/Credit Due

The current balance is calculated by subtracting any deposits received and anticipated aid from the total charges. Students have two options:

  • Pay in full the amount listed as "Current Term Balance"
  • Enroll in the Monthly Payment Plan to pay the amount listed as "Minimum Amount Due Now"
