SAO maintains a record of student's charges and payments. They create a Registration Schedule and Invoice (S&I) upon a student's initial registration. The S&I shows the student's course schedule and details all charges and payments on the account for the current semester at the time of printing. SAO also sends Statements of Account (monthly bills) to students with outstanding balances. Monthly bills are produced on an average of a 28-day billing cycle, excluding holidays. Interest is assessed on past due charges at a rate of 12% per annum. Any balance of $100 or greater carried into the second billing cycle of the semester will also incur a late payment fee of $75 per semester in Fall and Spring.

Students who carry balances of $500 or more ($75 for employees) have student account holds on their accounts. These holds prevent the students from registering. Students with balances over $50 will not receive transcripts.
