Billing and Payments
As a high school student enrolled in a Truman State University course, you are eligible for special rates. Every course you take has an $85 per credit hour tuition rate. If you are eligible for “Free and Reduced Lunch” programs through your school, you can take up to 9 credits of Truman coursework at no tuition charge. Textbooks, software, and course materials, if they are required for your course, are an extra cost and are your responsibility unless an arrangement has been made with your high school to cover those costs or purchase those materials.
To receive these discounts you need to follow the registration procedures covered here so that the University knows you are a high school student. If you are eligible for a Free and Reduced Lunch discount, your school counselor will need to provide verification by filling-out a form located here.
If your school is part of a formal partnership with the University to offer a specific class to students at your school, such as the Competency Based Mathematics (CBM) program, or the Dual Credit Calculus program, you may receive separate billing instructions. If so, please follow those instructions.
E-Bills are sent to you at your Truman email account, which is assigned to you when you enroll. During the academic year, these bills are typically issued around the 17th of the month with payment due around the 15th of the next month. Depending on when you enroll, this date may fall before or after your enrollment date. Schools in partnership with Truman for Dual Credit or Competency Based Mathematics will have bills due on the 15th of the month that falls immediately following the date a school submits its roster for enrollment (normally September 15th for the fall term).
For students enrolling in individual dual enrollment classes on campus or online, Truman expects payment in full by the first week of class. If you are unable to pay in full, you should contact the staff in Student Accounts to establish a payment plan.
When you are paying your own bills for the program you are responsible for:
- Regularly checking your Truman email account (by clicking the email link on the top of your TruView homepage) to view bill notices.
- Setting up your parents to have access to your TruView account for notices and making payments.
- Keeping track of the payment due date(s).
- Making the required payment(s) on or before the payment due date(s).
If you or your parents are having difficulty with payments you should contact Truman’s Student Accounts office 660-785-4074 or email email@example.com. Student Accounts can help with setting up payment arrangements or answering other questions about a student account.
