An Introduction To eBills

The Bursar’s Office at Rensselaer exclusively uses eBilling to distribute tuition bills. To ensure the timely and smooth access of your bill, please review the following information that will explain this exciting new service.

  • eBill is an online presentation of your Rensselaer student bill and uses a web-based presentation from Sallie Mae to provide a secure access to student financial records.
  • An email notification is sent to each student’s Rensselaer email address with instructions on how to enroll in the eBill program. Once enrolled, the student may designate additional users, usually a parent or guardian, to enroll and also have access to their bills. Since eBills are the only way to receive your bill, keep in mind that you must enroll in the program.
  • It will remain the responsibility of the student to check for the latest eBill and ensure that it is paid on or before the due date. Students whose parents or guardians do not have access to email are responsible for printing a PDF copy of their bill and mailing it to their parents or guardians.
  • If you are a new incoming undergraduate student to Rensselaer, you will receive your Rensselaer user name and password (needed to access your RPI email account) in the orientation confirmation packet sent by the Office of the First-Year Experience. If you have questions, contact the Office of the First-Year Experience at 518-276-6864. Please also notify the Bursar’s Office if you have not received your packet by July 1st so that we may further assist you.
  • Each month, students will receive a courtesy e-mail sent to their Rensselaer e-mail address indicating the eBill logon link and the availability of that month's bill. The other individuals designated by the student will also receive a similar email indicating the link and the availability of the bill.
  • Rensselaer eBilling is reliable. No more delays in receiving your bill due to processing or mailing time. Plus you can view your bill and make payments, simply and securely, from one website. Each time an online payment is made, you will receive a confirmation email for your records. If you prefer to mail in your payment, just print the bill, keep the top portion for your records and return the bottom portion along with your payment to the address at the bottom of the bill. You will also need to attach the payment coupon, a printable version of which can be accessed by clicking the "Print Payment Coupon" button at the bottom of your eBill.
  • If you are enrolled in the TuitionPay monthly installment plan, you must continue to make your payments directly to TuitionPay.
  • eBills are a snapshot in time and do not reflect any activity (payments, credits, or adjustments) until the next billing cycle. However, your balance will be updated as of the evening before. To view real time information, please log on to the Student Information System.

Students will have access to their eBIll via the Student Information System (SIS). Once in SIS, click STUDENT ACCOUNT DETAIL and then ACCOUNT SUMMARY BY SEMSTER. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Cashnet link. From here, you can view bills, make a payment or give others access to your bills.
