Your UST student bill is in the mail – your e-mail that is!
On Monday, June 29, the Business Office formally announced that electronic statement billing (eBilling) would be coming to the University of St. Thomas this fall as the exclusive method for student account billing. All charges to student accounts, including tuition, fees, housing, meal plans and miscellaneous charges, are now available via Murphy online by entering a UST ID and PIN.
Paper billing statements are no longer being mailed – student bills will be sent via electronic means only.
All students are automatically registered to receive an eBill, and students would have received an automated e-mail message on Aug. 25, and again on Aug. 27 advising them that their first billing statement for the fall term was available to view and print via Murphy online.
Students are the only individuals who can access information through Murphy; therefore, establishing authorized users is an important step in granting parents, guardians, spouses and other third parties access to your eBill. Once established, authorized users can access your eBill and make payments on your behalf. If someone other than the student needs to view a student billing statement or make payments — then the student needs to provide authorization.
The vast majority of students are familiar and comfortable with the Web culture. It has become commonplace to perform many daily transactions and communications via e-mail and the Internet. Electronic statement billing brings time and monetary savings to students, their families and the university.
The August eBilling statement sent for the fall 2009 term charges has a minimum payment due by Sept. 19.
