Student Accounts

The Student Accounts Office is responsible for the assessment and collection of student tuition and fees. We manage all university revenue, student payments and refunds, third party scholarships and billing, military billing, bad debt collections and the Federal Perkins Loan program.

We can help you:

  • Find important deadlines and instructions for paying your bill
  • Understand the various fees on your bill
  • Answer frequently asked questions about topics such as fees, paying your bill, financial aid, and payment plans.

Bills are available online. Paper bills are not mailed. You will receive an email through your ship.edu email account when bills are ready to view online. Check your ship.edu email account regularly for important billing information updates.

Please include your student ID number on all payments, letters, emails, faxes and voicemail messages for the Student Accounts office.
