A — statement date
This is the last day of the period for which your statement was generated. Generally, this is the last day of a month, though periodically other dates are used. Any activity (payments, charges or financial aid) posted to your student account after this date will not be reflected until the next statement.
B — total balance
This is the current balance on your account at the time your statement was generated. Please note that awarded financial aid is not factored into this amount until after the last day to drop classes each session and it actually applies to your student account. To view your Current Balance, log on your ePayment Secure link / login required account.
Financial aid that will be used to pay charges and reduce the amount you owe is recorded on accounts beginning the second week of class. Your balance will continue to show an amount due until the aid has been recorded.
If your Total Balance is a negative (credit) amount, it means that you are due money back. If the credit is due to excess financial aid, you should receive a refund approximately 1-2 weeks after the credit posts and do not need to make a request for this to happen. If the credit originated from a personal payment, for a class that you dropped or overpaid for, you can request a refund by emailing Refunds@CCIS.edu.
C — description
This section records your entire student account activity for the month. It will show the date, term, a brief description, charge, credit and balances for each transaction that occurred on your account.
If you have questions or need assistance, please contact your Columbia College location or the Center for Student Success. You may also send an email to BusCases@CCIS.edu.
