Billing, Payments, and Student Accounts

Student account statements are distributed electronically. All billing notifications are sent directly to students at their Columbia University email address; no other address is used. Consequently, students are required to activate their Columbia email accounts immediately after confirmation of registration. For additional information on electronic billings see the Guide to E-Billing, available on the Student Financial Services Web site.
