Billing Statements

Students can view their online billing statements at any time on the financial tab of their student portal. It is critical that students remain current in their financial commitments to IBCS. Students are encouraged to communicate with the IBCS Billing Office regarding any payment questions.

Financial Holds

If a student has an outstanding balance on his or her IBCS student account, then the Billing Office will place a Financial Hold on the account. Consequently, students may not enroll in future semesters while a Financial Hold is active. In addition, a student’s account must be paid in full in order for IBCS to issue an official grade report, transcript, or diploma.
