Fall 2014 Financial Settlement - New Freshmen

Fall 2014 Financial Settlement

The following information applies to new freshmen only. All other students please see the information at the bottom of this page:

Cashier's Office Financial Settlement of Registration Expenses

  • Either payment in full or the Minimum Amount Due shown on the bill must be received by the due date to complete financial settlement. Your fall admission, class schedule, and housing preference are subject to cancellation on August 1 if you fail to meet this deadline.
  • If you registered before bills are mailed, a semester bill will be sent to your home address (or an alternate address if selected) and your E-Bill will be available online. If you register after bills are mailed, you will only receive an E-Bill.
  • Provide verification of outside scholarships to the Cashier's Office by completing the Outside Scholarship Report Form so that such information is included in your financial aid award package.
Financial settlement is the final step of registration that begins the month prior to the beginning of a new term. There are two steps: confirm attendance and pay semester bill.

Confirm Attendance: We want to be good stewards of financial and academic resources available to Baylor students. Confirming attendance just prior to the beginning of class helps us to carefully allocate those resources to students who are sure to attend.

Students can log into BearWeb after receiving new term invoice notification and choose
>Student Financial Services >Student Account >Confirm Your Attendance.

Your balance is 0 or less after financial aid credits? You still must confirm attendance to complete financial settlement.

Pay Semester Bill: Semester bills are posted to the E-Bill System and an email notification is sent to the student's Baylor email address as well as the email of Authorized Users. We strongly encourage students to designate their parents in this system so they too can access all bills online and receive time sensitive reminders.
Semester bills will also be mailed.

Pay the net balance in full or the minimum amount due online by electronic check or credit card, or mail payment to Cashier's Office. (Be sure to allow time for mail to be received.)

If full payment or the minimum amount due is not received by the due date shown on the semester bill, both your housing assignment and your class schedule may be cancelled.

Expecting financial aid? There are certain forms that must be completed in a timely manner for aid to apply to the account before the financial settlement deadline. Details of these processes and the dates are available at Applying for Financial Aid or Completing the Process. Otherwise, please be prepared to pay in full or make the first installment payment by the financial settlement deadline. If financial aid later creates a credit balance on the student account, this credit can be reimbursed to the student when it arrives.

What happens if a student fails to complete financial settlement by the due date? As an entering freshman, you are not guaranteed that you will be able to attend Baylor for the fall semester.
