Frequently Asked Questions

Billing

By registering for courses, you are responsible for payment of tuition and other associated fees. If you wish to drop or withdraw from a course, you must follow the processes outlined in the Drop and Withdrawal Policy for Credit Courses.

Electronic Billing (eBilling)

Tuition and fees for credit courses are billed monthly by the University. You will receive an email notification from the University when monthly billing statements are ready to view on RAMweb. A notification is sent for any month you have activity on your student account.

Billing notifications will be sent to the email address associated with your student record. You will be referred to RAMweb to view your online billing statement.

You can grant access to allow others to view your billing statement in FAMweb. To add or manage user permissions in FAMweb, log in to RAMweb, and select “Manage Student Records” under the Records menu.

Billing Statements and Payment Due Dates

Your billing statement in RAMweb has detailed financial information relating to each billing period and is not cumulative. Each statement includes a due date indicating when payment must arrive at the University Cashier's Office. See the table below for important billing and payment dates.

Semester First Email Notification Sent
(in the middle of the month)
Payment Due
Fall August September 10
Spring January February 10
Summer May June 10

Any subsequent charges added to your student account are billed in full and are due on the 10th of the following month (or the following business day if the 10th falls on a weekend or University holiday). CSU does not offer a payment plan.

Late Fees/Collections

The University will assess a 1.5% per month late charge on the past due amount if payment does not arrive by the due date or if payment does not cover the total amount due. If your CSU account becomes delinquent at any time, you are responsible for paying any late payment charges, collection agency fees up to 40% of the debt, and all costs and expenses including reasonable attorney fees that CSU incurs in its collection efforts. The University will not register a student, confer a degree, nor provide official transcripts to any student or former student who has past due financial obligations to the University.

Credit Cards

There is a 2.25% convenience fee plus a 75¢ per transaction fee charged for all credit cards used to pay any amount toward a student’s University account.

Sponsored Billing

Students who are sponsored by a third party can request billing of tuition, course fees, and other related educational expenses be forwarded to their sponsors. Students or sponsors may request sponsor billing by providing an official letter or other authorizing document. Military organizations and most employers have official documentation; see your benefits office for more information or email BFS_AR_Sponsor@mail.colostate.edu for assistance in determining the appropriate paperwork to file.

Authorizing documentation must be received before the first due date of the semester to avoid late charges being assessed. Documentation must be submitted each term. Submit documents to:

Email: BFS_AR_Sponsor@mail.colostate.edu
Mail: Colorado State University
Sponsor Accounts Receivable
6024 Campus Delivery
Fort Collins, CO 80523-6024
Fax: (970) 491-2452

Sponsor payments must be received by the due date on the sponsor invoice in order for you to be eligible to continue enrollment in subsequent terms. In any sponsored billing arrangement, you are ultimately responsible for the payment of University charges. If your sponsor fails to pay any amount invoiced, the original charges are returned to your student account and late charges are applied if payment is not received by the first due date.

A non-refundable $50 Sponsor Billing Service Charge (per student per semester) is applied to all sponsored billings.
