Why don’t my parents receive the billing invoice at home and why can’t they receive any information about it over the phone?

Since the billing invoices are in the student’s name, the student bears responsibility for payment. For this reason, the billing invoices are sent to the student’s e-mail address as maintained by Enrollment Services. Per federal privacy regulations, parents (or anyone else) are not allowed to receive specific information about a student’s bill, unless the student has granted access to the information by submitting a Authorization to Release Information Form.
