Student Responsibility: The student is responsible for reading and understanding all academic and financial policies as published in the Macalester College catalog, including the refund policies for tuition, room and board. The student is responsible for all charges regardless of whether financial aid, employers, or third parties pay as agreed. It is the stduent's responsibility to ensure that all requirements of grantors, lenders, employers, and third party payers are met on a timely basis. The student is responsible for communication of billing information to all parties involved. If the student believes that any information on their statement is incorrect, they must notify the Student Accounts Office in writing within 30 days of the statement date detailing the information believed to be incorrect. If the information is not disputed in writing within 30 days of the statement date, Macalester College will assume the information is correct.
eBill: Your June 17, 2013 eBill statement is ready to view. The College has sent an email to each student and authorized user to announce the availability of the new eBill statement. A statement is generated each month the student has a billing account balance or activity on their account.
Students: To view your eBill statement: logon to Macalester’s 1600grand student portal, click on Student Life, below My Student Account click on View/Pay My Bill, click on Mac Account Suite, click on eBill.
Authorized Users: You must be set up as an authorized user by your student to receive an email saying the new eBill is ready to view. To view your student’s eBill
statement, go to:
To Become an Authorized User: Students may authorize parents or other persons to become an authorized user. An authorized user may view on-line billing information and make on-line payments. Students should logon to Macalester’s 1600grand portal, click on Student Life, click on My Student Account, click on View/Pay My Bill, click on Mac Account Suite, click on Authorized Users tab, and enter information as prompted. The authorized user will receive an email with login information.
Statement Date: This is the date through which detailed charges and credits will show on your statement.
Previously Billed Balances: Are past due, may have incurred a finance charge, and must be paid immediately.
Due Date for New Charges : As stated on the eBill Statement . Payment for all new charges during this statement period are due in the Student Accounts Office on or before this date. Previous billed balances are past due and must be paid immediately. Any payments received after the due date will be reflected on the next statement. If you have made your payment in full, thank you!
Amount Due: Amount that must be received in the Student Accounts Office on or before the due date for currently billed charges to avoid a finance charge.
Previous Billed Balance: Balance due from a previous month/s. If the current period ends with unpaid obligations, those unpaid obligations will be reflected on future statements as a part of the previous amount due.
Charges/Adjustments and Payments/Credits: The statement reflects activity on the account during the period from the last due date. The current month’s activity will be reflected on the statement with a brief description under “Transaction Description”.
Authorized Financial Aid: Aid that is confirmed but cannot be officially credited to your account until a later date due to federal or state regulations. Authorized financial aid reduces the “Amount Due” amount on your bill. You do not need to take any action to finalize financial aid that is in authorized status.
Memo Items (Pending Aid): Memo Items do not reduce the “Payment Due” amount on the bill. These types of financial aid fall into two categories:
- Some types of pending financial aid (e.g., Federal Stafford Loans in pending status) may require action on your part in order to ensure availability. Log in to 1600grand.Macalester.edu and review the financial aid section of the Student Life tab or contact the Financial Aid Office for information about actions required to make these types of financial aid available.
- Other types of financial aid (e.g., scholarships from non-Macalester sources) may be in pending status because the delivery of this financial aid is not controlled by Macalester. If you are not sure that these types of financial aid will be delivered to Macalester by the payment due date, you should contact the Financial Aid Office to help avoid unnecessary delays in validating your enrollment.
You may reduce the “Amount Due” by the “Memo Items” and outside scholarships which you are certain the college will receive. If these items are not received, a validation hold may be placed on the account and finance charges may be assessed.
Student Employment: Student Employment will be credited to the student’s account as it is earned only if it has been authorized to do so. The Student Employment Check Authorization Form to authorize this process may be obtained in the Student Accounts Office or on the Student Account web site. All students must pay any balance that is owing due to unearned work study that was authorized to pay their billing account.
Finance Charge: As of the 15th day of each month (or the first business day thereafter), the College will calculate the current billed balance by adding new charges to and subtracting new payments/credits from the previous balance. A finance charge of .667% per month (ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE OF 8%) is applied to the remaining previous balance due on the 15th of each month.
