Definitions and clarifications
Pay Balance Due:
The total due on your bill, which includes your previous balance amount plus new charges and payments that appear on this bill. Pay this amount in full by the due date to avoid fees for late payment and installment/re-billing. A zero balance indicates your account is paid in full.
The lowest amount you can pay to be eligible for the installment plan. A $35.00 rebilling fee will be assessed once per term for participating in the installment plan. If you do not make your minimum payment by the due date, you will be assessed a $30 late payment fee in addition to an installment/re-billing fee. If the minimum payment is zero, no payment is due.
