Traditional billing methods for student tuition and fees are a
thing of the past, replaced by an online billing system that
will save the University about $50,000 a year. Business Services
eliminated monthly paper bills sent through the mail and instead
sends e-mail statements to students’ accounts. The new
system goes hand in hand with another new feature that allows students
to pay their bills online using checks or credit cards.
FROM A DEFICIT
President George Dennison implemented a plan to eliminate a nearly $1 million
deficit in the athletics budget and prevent any reoccurrences of shortfalls.
The state Board of Regents approved his plan to control expenditures and increase
ticket prices, concessions, royalties, student fees and institutional funds.
The additional fee revenue and other funds will prevent any future deficit.
