Billing Schedule and Key Important Dates:

Tuition and fees are charged to the student's account at least 30 days before the first day of instruction for Term 1 (Fall) and Term 2 (Spring). An electronic billing (e-billing) notification will be sent via your e-mail address on file the day charges are applied. You will not receive a copy via US mail. A reminder e-billing notification will be sent to you two weeks before the due date and then again one week before the due date. Tuition payments are to be received by the Friday of the first full week of instruction. If Friday is a holiday or the university is otherwise closed, payment must be received the previous business day. Failure to make payment by the end of the second Friday of the term may result in withdrawal from CUSM.

You may view your Tuition Bill on EMPOWER SIS Student Portal. You will receive an email notification when it becomes available.


Please note: Disbursement of your awards will occur once you have completed all required applications and provided all required documentation and information. You may check the status of your financial aid award on EMPOWER SIS Student Portal


Payment Resources


Past Due Accounts

Payment of all tuition and fees are due by the end of the first week of each semester/payment period. If your account becomes past due, a late payment penalty charge of $200 will be assessed. If your account remains unpaid/outstanding after your departure from CUSM, it may be referred to a collection agency and reported to a credit bureau.


Student Refunds

Any funds in excess of your current balance are considered a credit balance/student refund which will be returned to you within 14 calendar days after your financial aid disbursed/posted on your account. CUSM will issue credit balances/student refunds by depositing the funds in a savings or checking account that you designate. Please note, if the bank deposit to a student’s savings or checking account is undeliverable, CUSM may make additional attempts to deposit the funds, provided that those attempts are made no later than 45 days after the bank deposit was rejected. If you experience an issue related to the processing time of your student refund, please contact us directly.


Students receiving federal loans can expect to receive two email notifications:

  1. The first email notification will come from the US Department of Education. This "disclosure statement" email will confirm the net loan amount approved for disbursement.
  2. The second email notification will come from the Student Business Services Office. This email confirms that the school received loan funds posted to the student account. Once loan funds have been posted, the refund process will begin if eligible.
