1. Students to receive e-bill notices next week

Students will receive notice of e-bill availability via their eMarq e-mail account the week of July 7 for their fall semester tuition, housing/meals and other fees. For fall semester, students will receive both the e-bill (whether there is a balance or not) and a printed bill via the postal service. Students will receive only the e-bill beginning for spring semester.

The e-mail will link to CheckMarq, and students can view their billing statement online at any time. Students still have the option of paying online, in person or through the postal service.

Students can also create guest accounts on CheckMarq to provide access for parents, guardians and others to view their grades, bursar account and financial aid information. Students may share the login information for their guest account with anyone they choose. Students control the access and the password and can change them at any time. Log in to CheckMarq to set up guest access.

2. Department of Counseling and Educational Psychology changing its name

The Department of Counseling and Educational Psychology, College of Education, will change its name to The Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology effective July 1.

According to Dr. Bill Henk, dean, the name change is intended to be more reflective of the foci of the department and the programs offered within the department. “The school counseling and community counseling programs remain as mainstays in the department,” said Dr. Todd Campbell, department chair and associate professor. “Our APA-accredited doctoral program in counseling psychology is the other mainstay and this program continues to grow and enhance its reputation. The educational psychology programs are no longer being offered.”
