Gradute Payroll Deduction Policy
1) The annual cost of foreign health
insurance will be charged to graduate students in two installments,
one half in the fall semester and the other half in the winter
semester. Students admitted in January or May will be required to
pay their prorated premium for the balance of the academic year in
their first semester.
2) If you select the option for payroll deductions in the fall semester you will be covered for three semesters from the date of signing. This will eliminate the necessity to complete forms each semester. If you select the option for payroll deductions after the fall semester you will be covered for the balance of the semesters in the academic year (currently in practice). Therefore, all students who wish to have payroll deductions must submit a new payroll deduction form each Fall semester. Forms are available from the Cashier's Office (A1023), the Graduate Students' Union (Feild Hall), or the School of Graduate Studies (IIC2012). In addition, the forms can be downloaded. Completed forms should be sent directly to the Cashier's Office. If any changes are made to the form by the Cashier's Office, a corrected copy will be returned to you. You may also sign and submit a blank form to the Cashier's Office, it will be completed and a copy returned to you. Please check the returned form to ensure that all charges appear. (For example, meal plan, Burton's Pond, Health Insurance, etc.) It is your responsibility to notify the Cashier's Office of missing charges.
3) Payroll deduction forms have been changed to identify more
clearly the number of pay periods that fees will be deducted over
and the amount of each deduction. Please retain a copy of your
4) If you are late in signing your payroll deduction
authorization, or you experience delays in the processing your
graduate support, your accumulated deductions will be deducted from
your accumulated retroactive support payments wherever
5) For students who have completed their authorization by the
fees payment deadline (see University Diary), payroll deduction
should commence with the second pay period in each semester and
will be extended over the maximum number of periods available
within a semester. This will usually result in a minimum of
seven to a maximum of eight
deductions per semester.
6) If you change your registration status or are charged late
fees, library fines, etc., you will be responsible for contacting
the Cashier's Office to arrange an increase in their deduction
agreement or arrange direct payment prior to the commencement of
the next semester.
7) Outstanding fees for a semester must be
settled prior to the commencement of the next semester. You may
access your student account through Memorial Self-Service to
determine your status.
8) If you negotiate an emergency loan you may choose to repay it
through a lump-sum payment, or you may contact the Cashier's Office
to arrange deduction amounts in the semester in which the loan is
due. You will not be permitted to increase your deductions for
outstanding fees or loans past due.
