The first bills for the fall semester are mailed out in early July to students who have preregistered. We start sending out bills in mid-December to students that are preregistered for the spring term. You will receive a paper bill ONLY ONCE at the start of each semester, and then receive electronic billing notifications to your North Park email account every month thereafter if you have an outstanding balance on your account. You can always view your bill online through WebAdvisor.
