Summer Session 2014
Tuition and Fee Payment Information (Video available)
Fee processing for Summer 2014 begins in April 2014. Billing information is available on BengalWeb. Bills are no longer mailed to students. Students who pre-register shortly before their classes start should pay fees on-line or at the Cashier's Office by Monday of the first week of class. Students should check on the web site or in person to verify fee payment and registration in classes. Payments or qualified authorizations made by employers or other sponsoring agencies and received by the due date in ISU Finance and Administration are posted to the student's account when received. Students should verify payment, and provide a copy of the authorization if payment is not yet posted to their account to avoid late fees.
Summer Session fees are charged with the following adjustments: Full-time semester fees are charged to PharmD clerkship students, Physician Assistant students, and Boise Fast-Track Nursing students. Full-time session fees are charged to College of Technology students taking 6 credits or more in the CTech classes. Credit hour rates are charged for summer academic classes and CTech classes when students are taking less than 6 CTech credits (up to the full-time rate for CTech session). During the summer, non-resident fees are not charged to students charged at the credit hour rate. The rates are listed in the cost information for 2013-2014.
Financial Aid processing begins Wednesday, May 14, 2014, for students who completed the requirements for Summer financial aid by May 13, 2014, and whose classes begin May 19. Financial aid will normally be processed up to 5 days before classes begin for an individual. Refunds will be delivered by eRefund or by mail. Please refer to BengalWeb (Finances tab) for billing, financial aid and online payment information. All refund processing is done in Pocatello, with eRefunds deposited or checks mailed as appropriate.
Installment payment plans are available for Summer Session beginning mid-May on BengalWeb. These loans require at least a 33% down payment. There is no interest charge, but there is a $30 non-refundable enrollment fee. Scheduled payments will be in June and July.
A $50 late handling fee will be charged to students whose fees are not paid by Monday of the first week of classes.
Late registration and/or fee payment after the last day to withdraw from class is by permission only. A late re-enrollment petition will be required of those students who have not paid fees by the last day to withdraw, and a $100 late fee will be charged .
Refund Policy Considerations
Students who drop classes before classes start are granted a 100% refund of fees charged. Drops within the 1st week of an 8-week class, or within the 1st two weeks of a semester class also receive a 100% refund. Those withdrawing in the second week of an 8-week class, or in the third week of a semester-length class receive a 50% refund of fees for those classes. Those eligible for a 50% refund are charged for 50% of the related withdrawn credits and 50% of the class fees for the applicable class fees.

On-Line Registration and Fee Payment
Students are expected to take care of admissions, class selection, financial aid application and authorization, and fee payment on-line through BengalWeb. Please pay attention to email, campus and personal announcements, and account information. Account information for students will appear on the Finances tab, and will reflect tuition, fees, miscellaneous charges, financial aid, exemptions, and third-party (agency) payments.
Students who need help with registration, scholarships, or financial aid can stop by the Museum Building Customer Service Center. Cash and check payments are accepted at the Cashier's Office on the third floor of the Administration Building. Change check processing is not available in person. Students should plan to complete on-line registration and financial aid requirements by May 13th to take advantage of priority processing, which begins Wednesday, May 14. Refund checks will be mailed, or E-Refund ACH bank deposits will be processed beginning May 14th. Banner processes rely on batch processing for applying financial aid and processing refunds, and change checks will be mailed to the mailing address on the student system.
University of Idaho Students
If you are taking classes from the University of Idaho in Summer Term 2014, your UofI classes will not appear on the ISU system. Please look for your account on the University of Idaho website. If you have matriculated through ISU, and are taking UI classes, you will need to arrange payment at each institution for the classes you will be taking at each.
If you are in a Summer 2014 Full-time Program, and are a graduate student taking at least 9 credits, or an undergraduate taking 11 credits or more between the two institutions, please contact Alice Allen at UI (282-7816) or Lisa Leyshon at ISU (282-4207) for adjustments to fees between the two institutions
Students seeking a degree through University of Idaho should coordinate with UI to receive financial aid. If you are taking classes from ISU, please check with a financial aid counselor concerning a consortium agreement to maximize your eligiblity for federal financial aid. ISU degree-seeking students taking UI classes should similarly consider a consortium agreement for the UI credits.
