Where can I find a list of itemized charges and my current balance due?
Your current balance due is available 24 hours a day on your Student Finance statement, or the Account Activity tab of your student Eagle Service portal.
An itemized list of charges can be found by clicking on "Expand All" on the Account Activity tab. Please review all of your charges and credits. For questions regarding discrepancies between anticipated charges and charges listed, please see the contact list provided below.
This balance reflects any Federal loans and/or AU grants and scholarships which were part of your award package and have been accepted.
Outside scholarships and private loans will be deducted from your balance due. Please indicate on application if you have outside scholarships or private loans.
Please note Federal Work Study is paid directly to the student and will not be reflected in this balance. Federal Work Study should not be included in APP calculations.
The Financial Aid listed on my portal is not what I was expecting. What should I do?
If you are expecting financial aid that is not reflected on your student account, logon to your student portal (
myAU.american.edu), select the financial aid links and open the MyDocs Page for further information regarding your financial aid.
Outside loans and scholarships entered into the application will show up temporarily as "Sponsorships" under "Account Activity" section in Student Finance until a payment is received. Expected outside loans and scholarships will be included in payment plan calculations.
Where can I see the details of my payment plan online?
You can review your account and access a PDF bill on your student portal (myAU.american.edu). Under your Personalized Links, select Eagle Service and then select Student Finance. On the Account Activity tab select View Payment Plans. This will open the Plan Information and Plan Schedule.
You may change your budget amount by submitting a written request to
email@example.com from the student's AU assigned e-mail address. Please title e-mail: "APP Adjustment Request.", and include the student name and AU ID.
You can terminate your enrollment in the payment plan at any time by e-mailing
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, if your account is not paid in full when your plan is terminated, the balance will be subject to 0.5% finance charges and financial restriction per university guidelines.
