In order to allow your parent(s) access to your bill and student account information you will need to set them up as an authorized user. If you do not set them up as an authorized user, they will not have access to your bill or student account information online, over the phone or via email. To set up authorized users:
Changes can be made as necessary. Authorized users will be sent email notification of passwords and logins. They are also notified by email when a new statement is posted or when they make a payment through the site. Authorized user's access is limited to viewing statements and making payments; they have no access to other information on your account.
If you do not establish authorized users, you will be responsible for printing and mailing statements to parents/others who need them.
Loans are applied to accounts by the Financial Aid Office.
If the Financial Aid Office has processed your loan application but has not applied it to your account, the loan is identified on your statement as "expected financial aid". To calculate the amount you owe, deduct expected aid from the balance due on the statement. If you have questions regarding aid listed as expected but not yet applied, check with the Financial Aid Office at email@example.com or at (660) 785-4130.
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid in February every year. You can apply on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Directions to apply for a PIN number are included on the web site. A PIN for the student and at least one parent is recommended for faster processing with electronic signatures.
The first bill of the fall semester is mailed to the student's permanent address. Bills for the rest of the academic year are posted on-line accessible through the student's TruView account. Students are e-mailed at their official Truman e-mail address when bills are available for viewing. Students can also enter their parents' e-mail address to receive a copy of the notice that the bill is available. Parents can view the bill and pay online at mybill.truman.edu.
Students who pay fees on the flexible installment plan pay a minimum of 25% of the balance (less expected aid listed on the statement) by the end of the first week of classes. If the financial aid is not received by the due date, the balance adjusted for expected aid will accrue interest until the aid is received. If the term's financial aid does not cover all fees, the personal responsibility is payable by dividing it into four payments during the fall and four payments during the spring (there are two payment dates for the summer term). Accounts not paid in full by the last due date--November 15 for fall, April 15 for spring and July 5 for summer--will be assessed a $75 late penalty. This payment method will incur finance charges equal to one-half percent (1/2%) per month or six percent (6%) per year on the unpaid balance. To sign up for the Flexible Payment Plan, go to http://truview.truman.eduand log on. Click the "Student Tab" at the top. In the "Student Finances" section, click on "Flexible Payment Plan Agreement". Read the agreement thoroughly and print. Retain a copy of the agreement for your records. Then, click "I Agree" at the bottom of the page. Students who do not use the installment plan pay fees in full that are not covered by the expected aid listed on the statement at the end of the first week of classes. If the financial aid is not received by the due date, the balance adjusted for expected aid will accrue interest until the aid is received. The amount calculated as the student's responsibility must be paid in full by the end of the first week of classes. Additional charges incurred during the semester must be paid by the due date designated on the bill. Accounts not paid in full by November 15 for fall, April 15 for spring, and July 5 for summer will be assessed a $75 late penalty. This payment method will incur finance charges equal to three-quarter percent (3/4%) per month or nine percent (9%) per year on the unpaid balance.
Failure to pay fees in full or make a partial payment and sign up online for the Flexible Payment Plan may result in cancellation of your enrollment.
