New system to replace paper-based student bills
Student Financial Services (SFS) is now implementing MITPAY, a web-based presentation of student bills with an option for making payments electronically.
"For students, managing account information on the web seems to be second nature. And for parents, having 24/7 access to the monthly student bill, as well as being able to make electronic payments, will be a great convenience," said Elizabeth M. Hicks, executive director of SFS.
By July, all student bills will be delivered electronically and paper bills will be eliminated. Until June, students will have a single paper bill delivered to their billing addresses listed on WebSIS. If students want paper bills to go to their parents' addresses, they must change that WebSIS address before Friday, Feb. 13.
