Financial Aid and Fees Payment
Once your bill is created, funds will begin disbursing to your account. It is your responsibility to ensure that all requirements for Financial Aid are completed so that aid can be used in the disbursement process and that any remaining charges are paid to finalize registration.
Any recipient of federal Financial Aid must complete the Title IV Authorization. By agreeing to the authorization, the student authorizes Federal Financial Aid to be applied to charges on the student's bill other than Tuition, Housing, and Meal Plans.
For example, if the authorization is not provided, things like parking permits and health center charges would not be paid by Title IV funds. Students may then need to pay these charges using other funds.
Once you log into Self Service Carolina, you are going to want to go to Financial, Awards, and then Award for Aid Year.
Once here you will seelct the Resources & Additional Information tab and read the Title IV Fee Authorization. Once you have read the certification you need to choose Agree or Disagree in the dropdown box.
If you change your mind after you have submitted your decision on the Title IV Fee Authorization you need to contact the Office of the Bursar to update this information.
Aid for Non-University Expenses – Refunds: If you have additional financial aid after your University charges have been paid, you will be able to receive the excess in the form of a University check or through direct deposit. If you prefer checks, they are mailed, according to an arranged schedule, from the Bursar's Office to either your local or permanent address as listed with University Records on SSC. Check with the Bursar's Office for the exact mailing dates and with questions regarding the mailing of your check. It is your responsibility to keep your address current on SSC. Excess financial aid or refunds that result from a parent PLUS loan will be mailed from the university to the parent borrower at the address provided on the PLUS loan application. If this address has changed, please contact our office.
