Bills are generated by and paid at the Student Accounts Office. If you have been awarded financial aid prior to receipt of your college bill, aid will be credited directly on your student accounts bill.
If you withdraw from the college during the semester, you may not be eligible for your entire financial aid award.
If you withdraw from any number of classes during the semester, your financial aid package may be adjusted. For example if you drop below 12 credits, your financial aid package may be reduced to that of a part-time student.
For more information, please see our refund policy. It is also very important to review the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy if you are planning on withdrawing from BSU or from any number of classes.
