Billing file icon


New freshmen who enroll in June can access their tuition bill in KSIS in mid-July. Bills generated in July are due by 3 p.m. on the first day of class in August (Fall semester). Any pending financial aid is listed as a courtesy but will not be officially credited to your account immediately. Pending financial aid will be credited to your tuition account by the due date on the bill, in accordance with regulations, and may change if you change enrolled credit hours.
