Please note an important change to the fall semester registration calendar. The fall fee payment deadline is 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, Aug.13. We need your help to remind students to pay their tuition and fees by this new, earlier deadline to avoid cancellation of their fall classes. The fall payment deadline is now earlier than in prior years in order to more effectively manage registration and fee payment and align with best practices.
Bills will be available for students to view via Self Service Carolina on July 17. Students are encouraged to pay their bills on-line using E-check or credit card. Students may take advantage of the payment plan option by selecting it within Self Service Carolina. There is an additional administrative fee associated with this option. Mail-in payments must be received by August 1. Students who are canceled for non-payment on Aug. 13 may attempt to re-register throughout the remainder of fall registration and the drop/add period.
Reminders about the deadline have been emailed to currently registered Columbia students. The deadline is highlighted during new student orientation, and the date is prominently noted on the Bursar, Registrar and Financial Aid offices’ websites. Departments are encouraged to complete and submit any financial aid and scholarship, as well as graduate assistant tuition stipend or supplement paperwork as soon as possible to the appropriate office for timely processing.
