Your Aid & Your Bill

You may view your account statement in early July for the fall semester and early November for spring semester, after you have registered for classes. 

What does a negative balance on my eBill mean?

  • If the amount of financial aid disbursed is greater than your charges, then you will see a negative balance on your account.
  • This means a refund will be paid to the student. Refunds are processed on the first day of class at the earliest.
  • You may use this refund check to purchase books or for other expenses.

Billing and Aid

  • The eBill will reflect the student’s “estimated financial aid.” 
  • Estimated aid includes the total aid which the student has accepted.
  • You must log in to My UNC Charlotte and accept the awards you have been offered to ensure that those funds are included as estimated aid. 

How much do I pay?

  • If the total charges exceed the estimated aid, you must pay the difference before the due date. 
  • If the aid exceeds the charges and there are no outstanding charges from a previous semester, the bill should reflect $0 in the “Pay This Amount” field and you can expect a refund of the excess aid.

Prior balances

  • Financial Aid can only be used to pay for charges during the designated term
  • Any prior semester balance that is owed must be paid before the billing due date.
  • Even if the current semester’s aid will generate a refund, you must pay prior term charges out-of-pocket before the billing due date.


  • If you don't pay the amount due, you will be dropped from all courses before the start of the term. 
  • If your schedule is canceled, you will be able to re-register for courses, but must satisfy payment requirements by the drop/add deadline or be dropped from all classes for good.
