In accordance with the Federal Privacy Act, as well as University Policy, we will not knowingly release information about a student's account to anyone who is not the student. Parents, spouses or children of the student will not be given information without the written consent of the student. If you would like any information to be given to another party, please print out the request form and have it notarized. We have a notary in our building for your convenience. Then mail or deliver the original form to Cashiering - Eppley Administration Building room 109. We will then make a note on your account to release information to the person you list on the form.
Parents of Dual enrollment or Early Entrance students must have their son/daughter sign a Release of Information Form in order to receive information regarding their son/daughter's account. Although the University realizes that these students are generally under age 18, the FERPA laws pertain to all students attending classes at UNO.
Billing Due Dates
*Additional billings on unpaid balances will be sent monthly throughout the rest of the semester.
Each unpaid billing is subject to late payment fees. A maximum of four late payment fees can be assessed during a single semester. If you have not received your billing statement within five working days of the billing date, please contact the Cashiering/Student Accounts Office, EAB 109, or call (402) 554-2324. Failure to receive a statement does not exempt you from making the required payment or from the assessment of Late Payment Fees. Changes to your course schedule will not prevent late payment fees from being assessed and we will not send an adjusted billing. You must inquire about billing changes prior to the billing due date.
Balances remaining outstanding beyond the second due date will result in the placement of a hold on the account. This hold will prevent future registration and receipt of transcripts. In addition, graduation and receipt of diploma may be held and check cashing privileges will be revoked until the balance is paid in full.
Late Payment Fee Amounts
A Financial Aid Extension postpones your payment due date to allow time for your financial aid award to be processed. The extension also obligates you to the charges listed on your statement. Therefore, please remember that if you change your plans and decide not to attend the current semester at UNO, you must withdraw from classes using the withdrawal procedures outlined by the Registrar. If you have applied for financial aid for the current semester, and it has not yet been credited to your tuition and fees account or disbursed directly to you, you must contact the UNO Financial Aid Office, Eppley 103, 554-2327, before your payment due date. If your billing statement does not have the comment at the top of your account detail on your billing statement, the Financial Aid Office may be able to grant you an extension. If not, then your entire balance is due by the payment due date indicated at the bottom of your billing statement.
If your financial aid award is insufficient to cover your total balance, or if your financial aid award is canceled, then it is your responsibility to pay any remaining balance by the payment due date indicated at the bottom of your billing statement.
If at anytime the Financial Aid Office deems your extension invalid because your aid has been alleviated or you have changed your enrollment status disqualifying you for financial aid, a revocation will be placed on your extension and you are eligible for all applicable late payment fee penalties and holds.
A partial extension is awarded when the amount of your financial aid award will not cover the full cost of your tuition and fees balance. Generally, when this extension is awarded, a dollar amount is listed on the line below the "Partial Extension to..." line. This amount is what Financial Aid is expecting you to receive out of your awards. The balance of your account less the amount listed under the extension is the amount you are responsible for paying out of pocket. The extension will usually cover the first half (or minimum due) amount of your first billing, but if it does not you must pay the difference by the payment due date to avoid a late payment fee.
The company you work for can pay your account balance in two ways.
If you are part of a tuition reimbursement program, you will be required to make your payment at the scheduled payment due date. Your company will then reimburse you, usually once you provide them with a copy of your account balance reflecting payment. You can access your bill on Mavlink. If you do not meet the scheduled due date, late payment fees will be assessed. Some companies require you to report grades prior to reimbursing you. Keep this in mind as you register for the semester and plan your financial obligations.
Your company may have a signed arrangement with UNO to bill them directly. Generally, you still need to submit a voucher to our office prior to the billing due date. This voucher gives us permission to bill your company directly. If you participate in a program such as this, you must be aware that you are giving us the authority to discuss specifics about your account balance with your employer. It is important to remember that if you receive a billing statement and you think your company is paying for your tuition, you must contact us. We try to have everything up to date prior to the billings being generated. If your balance does not reflect a credit paid for by your company, we may not have the proper paperwork. Contact us to be sure we have everything we need to bill your company. Late payment fees will be assessed on your account unless we have the correct paperwork or a payment from you.
AmeriCorps engages people 17 and older in service to their communities. Most AmeriCorps members are selected by and serve with local and national organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Big Brother/Big Sisters, and the American Red Cross, to name a few.
The AmeriCorps Education award is earned under the National and Community Service Trust Act of 1993. After successful completion of service, members are eligible for an AmeriCorps Education award that can be used:
The award can be used for any portion of the student's "cost of attendance" (as defined by the Department of Education and outlined in the Federal Student Financial Aid handbook) that is not already covered by other sources of financial assistance, such as scholarships, loans, grants and tuition and fee waivers. The amount of AmeriCorps award you receive will be affected by any other financial assistance you may be receiving.
