Title IV Authorization

Federal student financial aid can only cover “institutional charges” as defined by the U.S. Department of Education.  This definition includes current year charges for tuition and fees, and on-campus room and board.  It also includes other fees, such as:  lab fees, workshops, university registration fees, facilities usage fees, and other specialized departmental or college fees associated directly with taking a class.  Unless authorization is received, federal financial aid cannot be used to cover non-institutional charges such as: parking fines, library fines, breakage fees, returned check fees, application fees for short-term installment plans or any charges not directly tied to taking a class.

The only way federal student aid funds can be used to pay for “non-institutional charges” is to obtain your written authorization to pay those charges.  This form will allow Cashiers & Student Accounts to apply your federal financial aid to your non-institutional charges.


Third Party Billings

For payments that are to be made by another party (VA, Dept for Children and Families, employer, etc.), please contact Cashiers & Student Accounts at 620-341-6380. 

For questions concerning payment options, contact Cashiers & Student Accounts at 620-341-6380.
