The university cannot use federal Title IV funds to automatically pay for charges such as parking fees, balances from previous terms or health insurance.  A waiver must be completed and signed by the student to give the university this authorization.  Without completing this waiver the student is liable for the charges even if a refund is issued.  Follow the link above to complete this.
