Spring Semester 2012
Tuition and Fee Payment Information
Fee processing for Spring 2012 began on December 8, 2011. Student account information is available on BengalWeb under the Finances tab. Notification to students will be in the form of email, campus announcements, and personal announcements. Please pay attention to the alerts that are sent. No registration invoices or statements will be sent this spring, but are available on BengalWeb. You will be expected to use the tools available on BengalWeb to establish eligibility for financial aid, monitor your accounts, and complete fee payment. If you need help logging on to BengalWeb, please call (208) 282-HELP (4357). A checklist is available for Spring 2012.
All students, including those who register shortly before their classes start, should pay fees on-line or at the Cashier's Office by Monday, January 9, by 5:00 p.m., to avoid potential loss of classes and late fees. 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.
An Orientation Fee of $35 is assessed to all new degree-seeking undergraduate students. Students who should have been charged this fee in Fall 2011 will be charged in Spring 2012. All new students should plan to attend the orientation program the week before classes begin.
Classes offered on the web as part of the eISU Program are charged an eISU fee of $35 per credit. More information concerning cost of attendance can be found on the Cost of Attendance web page. Class Fee Lookup is available, also.
Financial Aid processing begins December 30, 2011, for students who have completed financial aid acceptance and authorization requirements. Account information will be available on-line and refunds will be delivered only by mail or directly to your bank account. Please allow 5 to 6 days for local bank and mail processes. Students who do not successfully complete the semester may be subject to Return of Title IV Funds federal repayment calculations.
Installment plans are available for Spring Semester beginning January 1 on BengalWeb. Students will be expected to pay the $30 processing fee and the first installment at the time the installment plan is set up, with automatic deductions from a checking account, debit, or credit card for the remaining installments. More information is available at the Installment Loans web page.
Fees are due Monday, January 9. If you will not be attending this spring, please drop the classes, making them available to students who will be attending. Disenrollment of students who have not paid fees will be Monday night, January 9. However, if you will not be attending, please drop the classes as soon as possible to allow others to add, and to avoid refund forfeit situations. Classes begin Monday, January 9.
A $50 late handling fee will be charged to students paying fees Tuesday, January 10 through Monday, January 23. Students who have not paid fees by January 23rd will again be subject to additional late fees and may be disenrolled from classes.
Late registration and/or fee payment after January 23 is by permission only. A late registration petition will be required of those students who have not paid fees by Monday, January 23, 2012, and an additional $50 late fee will be charged.
Refunds are calculated in relation to the length of the class and the drop/withdraw date. Students who drop or withdraw from classes after the 100% refund period are subject to refund forfeitures regardless of their payment status for the class. Please refer to the Refund Policy for additional refund information.
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 in the Cashier's Office in the Administration Building. Change check processing is not available in person. Students should plan to complete on-line registration and financial aid requirements by December 23rd to take advantage of priority processing, which begins Friday, December 30. Refund checks will be mailed, or eRefund ACH bank deposits will be processed beginning December 30. 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 Spring Term 2012, your UI classes will not appear on the ISU system. Please look for your account on the University of Idaho website.

Students seeking a degree through University of Idaho should coordinate with UI to receive financial aid.

ISU degree-seeking students taking UI classes should similarly consider a consortium agreement for the UI credits.
