Semester bills are delivered electronically.
Beginning with Summer 2014 semester billing, no paper bills will be mailed.
Electronic Bills (Ebill) are created for students based on course registration for a current semester. Bills cannot be created until a student is registered in courses. Any change to a student’s schedule may result in billing changes. Room changes and/or meal plan changes will affect the amount of the bill. The addition of miscellaneous items such as parking fines, library obligations, late fees, Wellness Center fees and/or residential damage assessments will affect the bill. Check your bill online through BANNER WEB, choose Student, and then choose QuikPay.
Notification of Bill
A notice will be sent to the student’s Cobleskill email account that a bill is ready to view. We will also mail a notice to the student’s permanent home address on file notifying a bill is available to view. To have an email notification go to someone other than the student, such as a parent, legal guardian, or other third party, the student must set this person up as an “authorized payer” through their QuikPay account accessed through BANNER WEB.
All bills for Winter Session 2013 are due December 6, 2013.
All bills for Spring 2014 are due January 6, 2014. Bills for students registering after this date will be due upon receipt. Student Accounts assesses an administrative fee of up to $50 and a late registration fee of $40 if payment, including financial aid and payment plan is not made in full by the due date.
All students are billed the voluntary fees: alumni, bus pass and fitness center fees. Notify Student Accounts before the seventh day of classes to remove any of these fees.
-The Alumni Fee is a voluntary fee supporting the Alumni Association, which provides support for many campus programs and student scholarships.
-The Fitness Center Fee provides access to the fitness center on campus for students who have paid this fee.
-The Bus Pass Fee allows students unlimited use of the Schoharie County Public Transportation system per the designated campus and community routes. Bus service picks up and drops off students at designated campus bus stops at multiple times a day six days a week. This service also includes weekend trips to Albany.
Changes cannot be made to voluntary fees after the seventh day of classes.

Room and Meals
Changes to housing must be approved by Residential Life (518-255-5215). If you paid a Housing Reservation/Room Rental Pre-payment Deposit, it is shown as a payment on your bill. Residential hall damage is assessed periodically. Students residing on-campus must have a meal plan. Call 518-255-5886 for meal changes.
Proof of financial aid must be provided for awards that are not already shown on this statement. If no awards are credited, your application may not be complete; contact Financial Aid Office at 518-255-5623. Should the “expected financial aid” not materialize, you will be responsible for the payment of the balance of your bill not covered by awarded financial aid. Current term financial aid cannot be applied to a prior term balance.
Notice: If you are receiving Federal financial aid; you must “earn” this aid per Federal Regulations. In order to earn 100% for the semester, a student must be enrolled at least until the 60% point of the semester. If you withdraw or stop attending before this point, and have received federal aid and/or a refund, you may owe significant monies to the college.
If you will not be attending Cobleskill, please indicate on and return a copy of your Bill (fax to 518-255-5844 or scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will insure timely return of your financial aid and accurate reporting of your status. To avoid liability you must officially withdraw prior to the first day of the semester. For withdrawal and refund policies, please refer to the Refund and Withdrawal Policies on our website, www.cobleskill.edu/studentaccounts
If you are on the Monthly Payment Plan, the amount on the bill is a total of payments received and temporary credit for payments still to be received. Continue to make your payments to keep this credit.
Refund checks are made payable to the student with the exceptions of parent PLUS loan refunds and refunds of credit card payments. Refund checks are mailed to the permanent home address on file, but may be requested to be held for pickup at the Student Accounts Office.
All accounts considered past due will have a Student Accounts Financial Hold posted after add/drop has passed for a semester. A financial hold will prevent future course registration, viewing grades and receiving transcripts. Also, students with unpaid bills are subject to having their Meal Plan shut-off for a period until payment is made or satisfactory arrangements made with Student Accounts.
Payment by check is subject to clearance by the bank. A returned check charge of $20.00 will be assessed for dishonored checks returned by the bank. A $50.00 administrative fee may be charged as well as your payment may be considered late.
