Please note that the eligibility date of voucher must be on or before the start date of the earliest session student is requesting to be paid.
Upon Cashier review and acceptance, charges will be deferred to Amazon. Should Amazon not pay, in full or part, deferment will be reversed and the student will be responsible for payment. Student will be responsible for any late charges if applicable.
Students wanting their voucher to pay for drop for non-payment courses MUST have their voucher in the Cashier’s department no later than the Wednesday before tuition due date. If voucher isn’t approved, the student must make payment prior to due date (they may be credited/refunded if approved later)—it is the student’s responsibility to monitor their SOLAR account to determine if they need to make payment.
