Why isn’t my full student employment amount applied to my account?
While student employment is a form of financial eligibility, the money must be earned. Students are given a specific dollar amount that they may earn each semester. Until the money is earned and applied to your account, you will not see the credit for it. If you would like to have your student employment earnings directly applied to your student account, you will need to complete a Student Employment Check Authorization (SECA) (eform) by going to this link. The SECA form authorizes the college to automatically apply the student employment earnings to the student’s billing account.
How are student employment earnings applied to student accounts?
Students who work on campus may complete a Student Employment Check Authorization (SECA) (eform) by going to this link. The SECA form authorizes the college to automatically apply student employment earnings to the student’s billing account.
I subtracted my charges from my financial aid eligibility and paid the difference. Why does my account still have a balance due?
Some common errors in calculating what is owed are: registering for part time when the student intends to be full time, making different living arrangements, not subtracting the loan origination fee, adding in your student employment earnings amount and intending to apply for a loan that has not yet been processed due to missing documents.
Who do I contact if I have questions about the financial aid eligibility listed on my eBill statement?
Please contact the Financial Aid Office regarding financial aid eligibility items listed on your statement or pertain to your billing account information. Their contact information is:
Phone: 651-696-6214 Email: [email protected] Web site: www.macalester.edu/financialaid/ .
How do I know what to pay if I receive new financial aid eligibility?
Take the total charges due, subtract the new financial aid eligibility and pay the difference. Remember that student employment earnings are not a credit until they are earned, so they should not be included in your calculation. To help you in figuring out the new amount due, go to Estimating your bill worksheet.

Do I have to pay for health insurance coverage if I have my own coverage?
By default, all students are charged for the health insurance and are responsible for waiving out of the policy. Health insurance coverage is mandatory. A student must waive out on or before the deadline of August 16, 2023, in order for the fees to e credited back to the student’s billing account. To waive out of the policy, go to GallagherKoster web site. Once you are enrolled in the policy, you may not waive out.
