Student Accounts are maintained by the FAU’s Controller's Office. Students are able to view all charges, payments and disbursements.
To view the Account Summary:
For the 2020-21 Academic Year, terms are:
Once financial aid has been applied toward tuition, fees and/or other charges, students are responsible for payment of any remaining balance due. Fee payment due dates are typically the Monday following the first disbursement date of the first and second halves of the academic year. Fee payment due dates for each class can be found on our Important Dates web page.
Please be aware that Federal student aid may not pay charges that are not academically related, such as Student Health Services, Library and Parking Ticket Fees. Students are expected to view their accounts on a regular basis to ensure these charges are paid. Questions about student accounts should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
* The Fee Payment Due Dates shown when you log into the Controller’s Office’s website are for main campus students, who register for Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. You have one semester per year, with half of your charges billed at the beginning and half at the mid-point of the year. Your Fee Payment Due Dates are found on the on the left side of the payment website and can also be found on the Important Dates web page.
When financial aid exceeds charges, the balance will be disbursed to the students to purchase books and supplies, and to meet living costs.
First year medical students receive their first disbursement on the second day of orientation; otherwise, disbursements are made on the second day of class, each half of the year. When the 3rd and/or 4th year of study begins in April, the 1st disbursement for the new academic year will typically be made the first Tuesday in May. Students can find the disbursement schedule on the Important Dates website.
Disbursements are sent to students’ banks by the Controller’s Office, and are deposited into their accounts. In order to do this, students must complete the direct deposit form, available through their My FAU accounts.
Setting Up Direct Deposit
We recommend all students complete the direct deposit form to minimize the time it takes for them to receive their funds. If a student does not have a bank account or does not complete the direct deposit form, their funds will be mailed to the address on file.
Students need to budget wisely, as each disbursement has to last half of the students’ academic year.
