Once a student incurs these charges, communication to the parents/guardian is initiated. This month’s direct notification will include comprehensive guidelines and instructions, and will be sent in addition to the regularly scheduled notifications.

· Parents/guardians may make payments in students’ accounts through the online payment system or in person at the campus site.
