Student Accounts Office

The mission of the Student Accounts Office is to provide excellent service for our students, staff, and faculty, while maintaining internal controls that ensure financial transactions are accurately processed and proper records are maintained.

Important Information: All semester bills will be provided electronically.  Monitor your Masonlive email account for notices regarding eBills, which will be available through the Bill and Payment System. Students must check Patriot Web for balance due, verify registration, and pay through Bill+Payment or at the Cashier’s Office by the due date listed.

Students are responsible for dropping classes that they do not plan to complete by the due date. Tuition liability may apply.

Please be aware that effective with the Fall 2018 term, tuition and the mandatory student fee are assessed separately on student bills. Prior to Fall 2018, bills included both tuition and the mandatory student fee amounts in a single line, listed as tuition.  The mandatory student fee is allocated to student health services, academic services, athletics, transportation, student centers and other activities. For more information, please refer to Mandatory Student Fees under Tuition & Fees.
