BILLING AND PAYMENT

The Office of Student Billing has GONE GREEN!  Students will no longer receive paper statements, they will however, continue to have 24/7 access to their Student Information System (SIS) account that will give details regarding all financial activity.  Payment for each semester is due to be paid in full no later than the payment date assigned. All accounts not paid in full by the assigned dates (See 2020-21 Payment Deadline Schedule) will be subject to a Business Office Hold, a Late Fee of $150, along with interest at a rate of 1% for each month the account remains past due. A Business Office Hold will prevent students from graduating/being ordained, enrolling for future semester coursework and may have course registration cancelled.

Third Party Tuition Payments

If a third-party individual (parent, grandparent, etc.) or congregation pays a portion of a student’s tuition, this will not be considered a donation to HUC-JIR but will be treated as a third-party tuition payment and applied to the student’s account directly. Such payments are not tax-deductible by law.

Forms of Payment, Processing Fees and NSF Fees

The College-Institute accepts checks, money orders and all major credit cards*.  At this time, there are no processing fees for debit/credit card payments; there will however be a $36 fee placed on the student’s account for all checks returned NSF.

Online credit card payments can only be made through the student’s SIS account.  *For other credit card payment inquiries, please contact the Student Accounts Administrator at (513) 487-3213.

LA STUDENTS HEALTH INSURANCE and HEALTH CENTER FEE

Health insurance is offered through University of Southern California’s student health insurance plan. HUC-JIR students enroll each semester online through USC’s insurance carrier’s website. Payment for USC’s Health Insurance is handled through USC directly.

All full-time Los Angeles students that are on the LA campus are also charged an additional Student Health Center Fee each semester. The Health Center Fee charge and payment is handled through The Office of Student Billing at HUC-JIR.

The Health Center Fee cost will be automatically deducted from Title IV Financial Aid funds available.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I see that tuition is listed as a yearly amount on the Tuition and Fee Policy, will I be charged the yearly tuition charge all at once?

Tuition is charged on a per semester basis. Full-time students will be charged half the yearly tuition at the start of the fall semester and remaining half of tuition at the start of the spring semester. Student Activity Fees are charged once per academic year and are charged in full at the start of the fall semester, except for Graduation/Ordination Fees which are charged during the spring semester. Student Health Center Fee for LA is charged on a per semester basis.

 

I took out student loans to help with my living expenses. How and when will I receive these funds? 

Students MUST complete an electronic ACH/Direct Deposit Agreement to receive disbursements. Unsubsidized Stafford and Graduate Plus Loans are disbursed to the school at the beginning of each semester, (specific dates can be found on the Financial Aid page). The College-Institute automatically deducts tuition, fees, health insurance and the health center fee from Title IV funds on the student’s account and will then return the excess funds to the student. The Office of Student Billing processes these disbursements as quickly as possible.

 

I am having a financial crisis, can the College-Institute help me? 
Please contact Roseanne Ackerley, The Director of Financial to inquire about additional financial aid.

 

What is a Health Center Fee? 
Students on the Los Angeles campus are charged a fee to use USC's Student Health Center each semester. This is a required charge for full-time students that meet the criteria of the Student Health Center Fee for the College-Institute. 

 

Why am I being charged a Student Activity Fee?
Student Activity Fees are charged yearly in the fall semester and are non-refundable. The money from these fees is given to the Student Association for each program, to support community activities.  All full-time students are charged a Student Activity Fee, unless otherwise noted.

 

I logged onto the SIS and have a Business Office Hold on my account. I am unable to access the SIS. What do I do? 
Contact the Office of Student Billing to pay your balance in full and the Business Hold will be lifted from your account.
