The Office of Enrollment Services is offering monthly training seminars for faculty and staff.  Seminars will cover a variety of topics including registration, student records, class scheduling, and student accounts.  Administrators are strongly encouraged to attend, as the seminars are designed to cover the areas in which the office receives the most inquires from faculty and staff. 


Class Scheduling: Sessions, Dynamically Dated Courses, and Instruction Modes

  • Thursday, January 5 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm - McGivney 106
  • Friday, January 6 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm - McGivney 106 


Account statements are generated on the 15th of each month (or the first business day thereafter). Account activity occurring between statements, including payments, acceptance and disbursement of financial aid awards, and reversal of the student medical plan charge, will appear on the subsequent monthly statement. Up to date account activity can be viewed between statements in Cardinal Station and on the Account Status page in CardinalPAY.

The first monthly statement with charges for the Spring 2017 semester was the December 16th statement.  Students who enroll in Spring semester courses after December 16th will see their charges on the January 17th statement.


Students with unpaid balances are subject to registration, transcript, and diploma holds. Additionally, those with unpaid balances of $300 or more will not be permitted to register for classes or select on-campus housing during the Spring housing lottery.

Interest is assessed on unpaid balances on the 15th of each month (or the first business day thereafter) and late fees are assessed once per term.  The spring semester late fee will be assessed on Wednesday, January 25th.  The first interest assessment to include unapdi spring semester charges will be the February 15th assessment; however, unpaid charges from prior terms are already subject to interest charges and will next be assessed interest on January 17th.
