Office of Student Accounts

close up of student in conversation

The Office of Student Accounts is dedicated to helping our students meet their financial obligation by providing timely and accurate information about their student financial accounts. Our mission is to ensure financial integrity in the cash management of university funds and provide exceptional customer service to our university community.

If you have any questions regarding your student account please stop by our office or contact us by phone, fax or email.

What we do includes:

  • Collect and process tuition and fees.
  • Issues refunds when applicable.
  • Ensure the timely deposit of funds.
  • Coordinate the billing process with other departments on campus.
  • Billing third-party agencies such as employers and VA.
  • Review of financial holds that can prevent students from future registration.
  • Account for and maintain internal controls for all student transactions.

Tiffin University is proud to offer a deferral program for those students with employer reimbursement.

Application

A student must request that the Office of Student Accounts enroll him/her in the program. We will then generate an Employer Reimbursement (ER) Note and Application for that note. In addition to returning the application and ER note, a copy of the employer’s reimbursement policy is also required.

Late fees

After a student has submitted the required paperwork and payment, the Office of Student Accounts will note on the student’s account that the remaining tuition charges will be deferred until 30 days after the end of the semester. After expiration of the grace period, an additional $50 per month late payment penalty will be charged. In addition, if the student does not make payment in full by February 1 for the fall semester, June 1 for the spring semester, or October 1 for the summer semester, the University will place the student’s account on financial hold, thus making the student ineligible to register for classes.

2021 tax document 1098-T will be published and available on and after January 31st on ECSI website. For instructions please see:
