For a smooth start at CU, here are few things to know about bills and payments

Action Items for New & Transfer Students
  1. Authorize payers (recommended)
    Parents, guardians and family members do not automatically have access to view and pay the bill. Find out how students authorize payers.
  2. Set up direct deposit
    Direct deposit allows for quick, secure deposit of refunds into your bank account. Learn more about refunds and how to set up direct deposit for tuition and fee refunds.
  3. Make health insurance selection
    Because health insurance is mandatory, university-sponsored health insurance is automatically charged to the tuition and fee bill for undergraduates enrolled in 6 or more credit hours. Learn more about the health insurance requirement and the selection/waiver process.

You’ll see these To-Do Items in MyCUInfo. Once you complete them, they will be removed from your list.
