Billing Rights Summary-In Case of Errors or Questions about Your Bill

If you think your bill is wrong, or if you need more information about a transaction on your bill, email us from your Marquette e-mail account as soon as possible. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we send you the first bill on which the error or problem appeared.

In your email, give us the following information: Student's name, MUID, and the dollar amount of the suspected error. Describe the error and explain, if you can, why you believe there is an error. If you need more information, describe the item you are unsure about.

You do not have to pay any amount in question while we are investigating, but you are still obligated to pay the parts of your bill that are not in question. While we investigate your question, we cannot report you as delinquent or take any action to collect the amount in question.
