Where will my billing statement be mailed?

How can I change my billing address?
Change of address should be made to the One-Stop Service Center. Changes can also be e-mailed to email@example.com from a Kean cougar e-mail account.
What are financial holds and how can they be cleared from a student's account?
Check KeanWISE under student restrictions for information about the type of hold you have and contact the Office responsible for clearing the hold.
Why does my statement show "estimated" aid?
Estimated financial aid is based on your financial aid award for the term. The process of disbursing financial aid begins after the add/drop date published each semester and after all requested documents are submitted to the financial aid office. Before aid is disbursed, the Office of Financial Aid is required to adjust awards and total cost of attendance if the student dropped credits during the registration period.
Additionally, awards may be adjusted if there were changes to the student's on-campus housing status and after the third week's attendance has been submitted by all instructors.
Why does my Federal Work-Study appear on my Financial Aid Award, but not on the statement or my Student Account Online?
The Federal Work-Study represents employment eligibility. Undergraduate students are paid biweekly and directly for the number of hours worked. Because the student is paid directly, these funds do not appear as a credit on the Student Account.
When will my refund check be ready?
If a valid credit balance exists on the Student Account, a refund will be processed and mailed within two weeks. Please note that for refunds of loan proceeds or other Financial Aid for a given semester, the refund check cannot be issued until the funds are received and posted to the Student's Account. All refund checks are mailed to the current address in our database. You are advised to keep your address updated at all times.
Why am I being charged for Health Insurance?
New Jersey state law requires that all full-time students participate in a qualifying student health insurance program. It is possible to waive the health insurance fee provided you are covered under a personal or parent policy. To provide proof of insurance you must complete the on-line waiver process by the published deadline. This can be completed through the student's KeanWISE account.
What happens if I withdraw from school while I am enrolled in your insurance plan?
If you withdraw, you will still be covered up until the end of that academic period.
