Settling Accounts

Settling Your Account refers to the process of making the necessary financial arrangements to pay for your tuition so that you will be allowed to attend classes. To avoid having classes dropped for non-payment, you must either pay your account in full or enroll in a payment plan and pay the required installment by the deadline each semester.  For Spring 2019, the deadline is January 4, 2019.  Students living on campus must pay in full or enroll in a payment plan and pay the required installment prior to move in.

NOTICE: The Business Office at CBU will no longer accept cash over $1,000 as a form of payment per person per day. Please use another form of payment if the amount exceeds $1,000. Options are cashier's check, money orders, checks or credit/debit cards.

Prior to the opening of the residence halls (Fall/Spring/Summer) when a contract cancellation is received in writing and approved by the Associate VP/Student Life prior to the day the residence halls open for the session, room and board payments will be refunded less the contract cancellation fee of $300.00.
  2. After the residence halls open (Fall/Spring/Summer), refunds for room and board must be approved by the Associate VP/Student Life. Refunds will be prorated as a percentage of how long they lived in the dorm.
