Financial Aid and Student Accounts
The Office of Financial Aid can assist you and your family in developing a plan for financing your degree. Your Financial Aid Advisor can help you estimate the cost of attending Stevens, review the different forms of aid and direct you regarding how to apply for external aid through various resources. The Office of Financial Aid is available to provide you with personalized assistance and information to help you make the best-informed decision for financing your Stevens education.
The Office of Student Accounts assists students and families with questions regarding ebilling, payment options, refunds and all student-related account information. The office works with students and their families in providing payment options in adherence to Stevens’ policy and manages the issuance of health insurance as required by the University.
Adding an Authorized Party to your Account
An Authorized Party can access the student’s account through the Authorized Party Portal after the initial account is set up. The Authorized Party must first access and set up their account from the invitation email sent when the student grants access. Students may set up an Authorized Party to allow their parents, spouse, guardians or other third parties to view their student account activity, make payments and set up payment plans on their behalf. To set up an authorized party, the student should follow the instructions found on the Workday Student + Nelnet webpage.
