Student Account Billing

Chaminade University prepares all student account billing in an electronic format. An eBill is generated, a notification is sent directly to the Chaminade student email account. Students have the option to print hard copies when viewing their eBill statements.

Students are reminded that they may also view their account balance anytime through Student Self-Service.  It is the student’s responsibility to check his or her account before the start of every term to ensure that all financial obligations have been satisfied. If registering after the start of the term, financial clearance must be achieved at the time of registration. Enrollment during the add/drop period requires immediate payment.

Students will continue to have access to their account to view any balances and make payments 24 hours a day, seven days a week through Student Self-Service. This means it is not necessary to wait for an eBill notification before making a payment.

All university communications will be sent to the student’s CUH email account. It is imperative that students check their CUH email account regularly. Some time-sensitive communications may require immediate response.

Financial Responsibility

  • Tuition, fees, and room and board must be paid in full prior to the start of the semester. Financial clearance may be achieved by the settlement of all semester charges through one or more of the following methods:

  • Payment in full of net amount due (see Payment Options below).

  • Enrollment in a tuition payment plan via Student Self-Service

  • Financial aid awards and/or loans (for information regarding tuition support, refer to the section on Financial Aid).

  • Military education benefits (including tuition assistance or VA benefits).

  • Tuition waivers.

  • Third-party payments.

For Military Education Benefits, Tuition Waivers, and Third-Party payments; please ensure official verification is submitted to the Business Office, to your Chaminade program coordinator, or the Chaminade School Certifying Official (SCO), prior to the first day of the term. If you are entitled to military education benefits with ArmyIgnitED, please complete your registration with Chaminade University before visiting the ArmyIgnitED website to register.

If financial clearance is not made prior to the first day of the term, a $100 late-payment fee will be assessed, and a Business Office hold will be placed on the student’s account. Any unpaid balances after the term ends may result in disenrollment of pre-registration. For the FLEX program, if there are no payments or you are not enrolled in the Tuition Payment Plan after the add/drop period ends for the current month, a HOLD will be placed on your account.  With this HOLD, you are unable to register for future courses, request for any Transcripts or receive your Diploma

There is a non-refundable 2.85 percent service fee per transaction (4.25 percent for international transactions) with a $3 minimum for transactions of $20 or more. You may also pay online with an electronic check which does not have a service fee applied.
