News from the Bursar August 2015

The Bursar’s Office is Paperless!
Bellarmine has gone green! We no longer mail student account statements. The Bellarmine University email is the student’s official email address. All communication regarding statements and charges will be sent to this email address.
Students should have received an email that their statements are ready to view. Additionally, if the student has created an authorized user account for a parent or guardian, an email should have been sent to their email address on file. If you believe the student has not received a fall semester ebill and/or have not received these emails, please contact the Bursar’s Office at 502-272-8264 or bursar@bellarmine.edu. Information on how to set up an authorized user can be found on the web at www.bellarmine.edu/finance/bursar.

Fall semester tuition was due August 3rd, 2015 unless the student is enrolled in a monthly payment plan. If you have questions about your student’s ebill, please contact the Bursar’s Office at 502-272-8264 or bursar@bellarmine.edu. If you have specific questions about your student’s financial aid, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at 502-272-7300 or finaid@bellarmine.edu.

Once logged in, you can choose one of two plans located under the ‘Installment Payment Plans’ box. The Full Amount Due Plan will create a payment plan for you based on the remaining estimated balance that comes directly from your ebill. The Custom Balance Plan allows you to enter in a contract amount separate from the ebill and is most useful for students with payments coming from multiple sources i.e. KAPT, NORTON, UPS, outside scholarships not yet received, etc.

Payments are due on the tenth of each month. Once your plan has been created, you have the option to enroll in auto-payments where the amount due is drafted from your bank account on the tenth of each month. You may also log in to pay toward your payment plan each month by selecting “Click Here to Make a Payment” and then MPP Installment Plan. Payments toward the plan are made online ONLY. You may pay with Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover (2.75% fee) or with an electronic check (no fee). Payments post immediately to the student account.

*Reminder: Payment plans must be renewed by the student each semester if this is the chosen payment method.

Declining Balance Flex$
You can purchase Declining Balance Flex$ online!

For every $100 that is applied to the student’s declining balance flex$, they will be rewarded a $10 bonus on the account. Declining Balance Flex$ roll over from one semester to the next as long as the student is affiliated with the university. This is an excellent option for commuters and great for residents who would like additional funds for food.

BU Dollars is an online, prepaid declining balance account that may be used on Bellarmine’s campus and at various participating locations around the city of Louisville. Students may also choose to make purchases at the campus Bookstore with these funds. Purchased funds are uploaded directly onto the student’s ID card and active immediately. This account will roll over from one semester to the next as long as the student is affiliated with the university and may be renewed at any time. BU Dollars can limit the amount of cash carried by the student and can be applied to a variety of locations and vendors. Some of these vendors include J Gumbo’s, Yellow Cab, CVS Pharmacy, Rite Aid and more!
Commuter Plan – 30 Meals + $50 Flex$
You can now purchase the Commuter Meal Plan online! The plan cost is $245 and includes 30 meals and $50 in Flex$ and rolls over from the Fall to Spring semester. This option is great for our Commuter students who eat meals on campus but also visit the café or carts where they can purchase items a la carte.
