Note: Prior year charges are limited to $200.
Why isnt my financial aid automatically applied to all charges already?
Federal rules allow Title IV Federal Financial Aid to only be applied to tuition, fees, room and board, "institutional charges" and up to $200 of prior year institutional charges. Students may authorize the university to pay all non-institutional charges for the current year and up to $200 of prior year non-institutional charges on-line via Duckweb.
What types of financial aid can be authorized to apply to other charges on my university bill?
Title IV aid including Federal Direct Subsidized ad Unsubsidized loans, Direct Graduate Plus loans, Perkins loans, Pell grants, SEOG, TEACH grants, and Direct Parent Plus loans.
What are some advantages of granting permission to have aid applied to all current year charges on my university bill?
Sometimes students receive refunds even when there is still a balance due on the university account. This can be confusing and frustrating for students. Granting authorization to have aid applied to pay non-institutional charges allows the refund to be directly applied to remaining charges in the same financial aid award year. However, charges from a prior financial aid award year may still remain outstanding.
Can I authorize my aid to apply to certain types of charges, but not other types of charges?
No. The authorization applies to all charges on the university bill.
Can my authorized payer in Quikpay grant permission on my behalf?
No. This feature can only be used by students.
If I provide authorization, but then change my mind, what should I do?
To rescind your authorization, please contact Student Billing by email email@example.com or call (541) 346-3170.
Do I need to provide authorization for each new academic year?
No. Once you provide authorization, your authorization remains in place indefinitely, unless you withdraw it.
