New - Student Finance Self-Service!

CTC announced a new WebAdvisor service to help students avoid standing in line at the Business Office for schedule copies or pay for classes. The new Student Finance Self-Service represents a much improved “View Account and Make A Payment” option in WebAdvisor Financial Administration. The View Account screens are much more robust and include all the information frequently requested and expected by students. Financial aid, Tuition Assistance and refund information can now be displayed along with charges per class and payment information.

Also, an account statement can now be printed which includes everything a student needs to see. Students will no longer need to wait in line at the Business Office simply to receive a copy of the “schedule” (registration statement) which has previously not been available through WebAdvisor. The Make a Payment process is much simpler to use. Students will receive a more detailed payment confirmation in addition to an emailed receipt once the payment is accepted.

Staff members can access the same ‘view’ as seen by the students, thus eliminating the need for students to get a copy of the schedule to take to our VA office or to get a student ID card made.

View instructions for accessing and using the new screens.
