Charges for housing and dining are typically placed on your student’s account shortly before the semester begins.
Student Business Services (SBS) dictates all deadlines and due dates; please refer to their website for details on this. SBS has a wealth of information posted for students and parents, including sample billing statements and video tutorials.
Prepayment for Housing
Prepayments for housing cannot be waived nor can they be charged to your student’s account. Prior to the start of the semester, the housing deposit will be credited to their student account to help cover any outstanding costs.
Prepayments should be paid by credit card via our housing application system. Other prepayment options are covered within the application system.
Understanding the Bill
Student billing statements are generated and available to view on the E-Bill website on a weekly basis. If changes are made to the student account (courses added, courses dropped, miscellaneous charges added, payments made, etc.) a new billing statement will be generated and an email will be sent to the student’s my.emich email address. Students are responsible for viewing each billing statement and making payments by the due date listed. Failure to make payments on time may result in late fees, registration holds and transcript holds. Questions regarding billing statements can be directed to: [email protected]
Miscellaneous charges may be incurred during a student’s stay in the residence halls or apartments. Common examples included:
- Replacing lost keys (includes changing key cores for safety)
- Damages to their room or hall
- Trash in the hallway/outside of apartments
- Improper checkout
When necessary, these miscellaneous charges are posted on a student’s account as a separate item. Usually they occur during the year, but some students incur additional expenses when they check out of their room. For a detailed list of all charges, please refer to the Guide to Campus Living.
