A Letter from the Office of the Bursar
Welcome to Fall 2011!! The Bursar's Office didn't rest over the summer. We have several changes and some good news to report. First, the changes: We have combined the Payment in Full Plan with the Five Payment Plan. The new plan is called the X-Flex Payment Plan because it provides students/parents the flexibility to pay their bursar account balance in one payment or as many as five payments.
Even if you and your student intend to pay the balance in full by Aug. 20, at least 20 percent of the balance should have been paid by July 20. Here's why. A change from previous years is that we will now be cancelling classes for non-payment before classes begin. Our current target date for cancellation is Monday, Aug. 15. We use the first payment of 20 percent or more as a key indicator in identifying who may or may not be at risk of having their classes cancelled. Another change: By now, you should have seen our newly designed eBill. The due date for all our bills is the 20th of each month. The minimum amount that needs to be paid each month is reflected on the student's X-Flex Payment Plan payment schedule.
Here's the good news. NEW this year is eRefund! Often times, a student's bursar account becomes overpaid. This may be the result of financial aid in excess of charges or an unexpected payment from a family member or outside scholarship (not a Xavier scholarship). Called My eRefund, your student can direct Xavier to electronically deposit any over-payments to their bank account or yours.
We wish you and your student(s) much success this academic year.
Henry Saas, Bursar
