At Columbia we call each bill a Student Account Statement. The student will be sent the first Student Account Statement for the fall term in late July or early August, and the first statement for the spring term in early December. The payment due date will be approximately 30 days after the first Student Account Statement for the term has been sent.
In addition, the student will receive monthly Student Account Statements when there is a current activity on the account (a new charge or credit), or if a debit or credit balance remains on the account.
Student Account Statements will not be mailed home. Instead the student will be able to view their Student Account Statement via Student Services Online (SSOL). Also, on SSOL the student may authorize you to view the E-Bill.
