We understand that a Messiah education is a major investment for students and families.That is why the Student Financial Services office provides resources and information for anticipating your bill, understanding your bill and our third party billing system (CASHNet eBill). Check out the content below for more information regarding billing or contact Student Financial Services at 717-691-6004/ email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bills are delivered electronically.
Bills are announced via email when they become available as they become available each semester. Students and Authorized users can access the bill via CASHNet.
Bills will be based on student course registration and financial aid information available to Student Financial Services at the time.
Financial aid that is known at the time of the billing will be listed as *anticipated financial aid. Anticipated financial aid (e.g. student loans, private scholarships and grants) is shown on the initial bill of each semester as a credit, as if it has already paid to the account. However, it is up to the student to follow through on any outstanding financial aid requirements. Any financial aid that has not paid out onto the student account to cover an outstanding balance after the initial bill due date may result in additional amounts owed.
Outstanding balances carried beyond the due date are subject to a finance charge of 1.25% per month.
