Paying Your Bill
There are 4 potential billing periods each year: Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. Depending upon the student's academic curiculum, there may be some winter and summer terms when the student is not required to enroll.
|Semester||Posted||Due||Late Fees Added|
|Fall||Late June/Early July||July 15th||August 1st|
|Winter||Early November||December 1st||December 15th|
|Spring||Early January||February 1st||February 15th|
|Summer||Early May||June 1st||June 15th|
MMA does not mail paper bills home to students. All billing information is communicated to the student through their MMA email account.
To access your bill
Log into Web Advisor and follow the link under Financial Information to 'view account and make payment.'
Once on your e-bill, there are a number of important links found on the right hand side of the page:
Authorized users: if someone else, like a parent or other individual will be assisting you with the payment of your bill, it is highly recommended that you provide their contact information on this link. They will receive their own log in credentials to be able to access and pay your bill. Rather than logging in using Web Advisor, Authorized Users will log in using the Parent Payment Portal. They will also receive similar emails to the ones that you will receive whenever there is activity on your e-bill. If you do not assign any Authorized Users, it is your responsibility to communicate billing amounts and deadlines to anyone assisting with paying your educational expenses.
Payment profile: if you will be making payments from a personal savings or checking account you can enter the information here. Before any transfer of funds will take place, MMA will run a test with your bank to ensure that the information provided here is accurate.
Electronic refunds: There are many instances where a student may receive a refund from MMA (overpayment, excess financial aid, deposit refunds, etc.). The easiest way to receive a refund is through electronic means. We will deposit your refund directly into the bank account of your choice. Receiving funds in this manner takes only a few days. If you do not set up an electronic refund, you could wait up to 3 weeks before receiving a refund. We highly recommend that all students set up electronic refunds, even if you do not anticipate ever receiving one, just in case.
Automatic bill pay: If you have set up a Payment Profile, you can also set up automatic bill pay. When this is done, MMA will automatically withdraw your billed amount from this account when it is due.
Notifications: In addition to the automatic emails that we send to your MMA email account, you may also add other ways to receive these notifications. You may add a secondary email account as well as request text messages. Please note: any mobile charges that are associated with text messaging will be the responsibility of the cell phone subscriber.
Payment plans: Families may enroll in a Payment Plan to spread their semester charges over a period of time. There is a $25 enrollment fee per term to participate in the payment plan. The Fall Plan begins on July 15th and continues through November 15th. All fall charges must be paid in full by the last payment. The Winter plan covers 2 months (December 1st and January 1st). The Spring plans begins on January 15th and ends on May 15th. There is no payment plan for summer bills.
