Billing will go green in Office of Student Accounting

The Office of Student Accounting will switch from paper to e-billing for the upcoming 2009-2010 school year.

Beginning in June 2009, bills will be available online only through WebSTAC. Following the University’s emphasis on sustainability, paper copies of bills no longer will be mailed.

WUSTL is making the change in an effort to cut down on paper waste, said Brandi Schnarre, manager of Student Accounting. In addition, the University will realize significant savings by not incurring the processing costs associated with the mailings.

Schnarre said that students have found online billing through WebSTAC convenient and easy to use. The online billing system also offers direct deposit of student refunds and online payment options using a checking or savings account.

Schnarre encourages students whose parents will be affected by this change to invite their parents to view the bills online. As is current practice, an e-mail will be sent to the student and other payers at the end of the month if an account balance is due.

Step-by-step instructions about accessing and paying bills online can be found on Student Accounting’s Web site,

“Staff members from our office are available to answer any questions students or parents might have about accessing and paying their bills online,” Schnarre said.
