Check your e-services for payment due dates or to determine if your Financial Aid (if applicable) will cover the charges. To check the status of your aid, log in to e-services and review your Financial Aid or contact an enrollment advisor at: 507-433-0600. You will be held responsible for the full payment of your textbooks if you become ineligible for Financial Aid, or if your aid is not sufficient to cover your account balance.
