  • Cancellation of on-campus housing
  • Denial of future course registration

  • Cancellation of all classes in which you were previously enrolled

    - will be on a course availability basis only, and
    - subject to a $100 non-refundable Re-registration Fee

  • $50.00 Late Fee

  • Revocation of student status 

  • Referral of the unpaid financial obligation to the University's contracted collection agency.  The student would be responsible for any related collection costs in addition to the amount due

International Students 
who wish to waive the university billed insurance policy MUST contact the Center for International Education Office at 860.832.2040.

Full-time students changing to Part-time status who had intended to obtain the University-billed sickness insurance will instead need to contact and pay directly to Aetna Student Health at 877.375.4244 or go online to www.aetnastudenthealth.com for sickness insurance available to Part-time students.   

2.       FINANCIAL AID CREDIT - Recipients of CCSU administered financial aid awards will note that the Billing Statement shows an anticipated CREDIT against charges. GRANTS awarded by the Financial Aid Office are based on a student registering for 12 academic credits to get 100% of the award.  Fewer than 12 credits will result in a PRO-RATED grant award. Those whose aid is insufficient to cover all charges must pay any balance by the due date.  Aid in excess of that needed for the billed charges will be refunded after the term begins. Students awarded aid by the Financial Aid Office are cautioned that, if awards, for which payment of fees has been deferred, are cancelled/decreased, the student remains liable to the University for any indebtedness.  
ALTERNATIVE LOANS are available. You MUST contact the Financial Aid Office for application procedures. Once the loan process is COMPLETED, and the loan is APPROVED, a credit of the approved amount will be applied to your charges. When the loan is disbursed, the actual amount received will be paid to your charges and any remaining amount owed will be the responsibility of the student.

3.       SCHOLARSHIPS - Students awaiting receipt of funds from private scholarship(s) may receive credit by providing a copy of the donor's award letter to the Financial Aid Office.  Students given credit for anticipated scholarships, and whose donors send scholarship checks directly to them, are responsible for ensuring that the Financial Aid Office receives the proceeds in a timely manner to pay off the credit. 

4.       CENTRAL Payment Plan (CPP) - Complete a CPP Enrollment Form to arrange an installment payment plan for the term's current balance.  Do NOT include Blue Chip, prior term charges, or any penalty type charges, i.e. parking/library fines, which must be paid directly to the Bursar's.  Contact the Bursar's Office at billing-bursar@ccsu.edu or 860.832.2010 with questions. 

5.       ROOM / MEALS - Cancellation by the Housing Office of a student's room assignment results when any amount for room charges is unpaid after the due date. Meal plan participation is REQUIRED of all students in the residence halls.  The University makes every effort to see that meal plan students' general needs are met but special dietary requests can't always be satisfied.  Residence Life phone number is 860.832.1660.  If the billed meal plan is not the one that you want, make another selection prior to the start of the term and notify Residence Life. 

6.       Payment Methods - CREDIT CARD / eCheck - Discover, Master Card and eCheck are accepted for billed charges.  Students paying by these methods should use the secure website available through CentralPipelinefor Students.  Use of MasterCard or Discover will incur a 2.5% convenience fee.
CHECK - made payable to CCSU, is to be sent to PO Box 4010, attn: Bursar's Office, New Britain, CT 06050-4010.  The check should contain the students' name and ID#.  
The cancelled check is your receipt.  
Checks and eChecks returned to CCSU by maker's bank as uncollectible will 
1) result in a $20 service charge, 2) cause forfeiture of personal check submission privilege. 
PLEASE NOTE:  Payments will not be accepted over the telephone. 

7.       BLUE CHIP debit account (optional) - Funds placed on account by student are accessed by CCSU student ID for purchase at various on and off campus locations. Contact the Card Office at 860.832.2140 for more details.  You may ADD Blue Chip directly to your charges on CentralPipeline, with electronic payment required at that time.  
If you are a Full-time student and wish to use excess financial aid not yet disbursed for the purchase of textbooks at the CCSU Campus Bookstore, up to $600/term may be transferred to your Blue Chip card by completing a form and returning it to the Bursar's Office.
