TROUBLESHOOTING

Why is my financial aid still pending?

If you have MTAG, HELP or MESG, these funds have not been received by the University at the time of billing. You can contact Financial Aid at financial.aidFREEMississippi to follow up on the disbursement status of any other aid.

How can I find how much I owe?

Login to SOAR and click on your Student Dashboard > Student Account > What I Owe. This page will subtract any pending financial aid from current student account charges.

How can I make a payment online?

Login to SOAR. Click on Student Dashboard>Student Account>Make a Payment

When I click Make a Payment, the amount is different in CashNet than the "total due" in SOAR.

Make a Payment directs students to Transact/CashNet to make a payment. CashNet does not pull over pending aid unless enrolling in the payment plan. Therefore, the student's full balance is listed. The “total due” from SOAR, can be manually typed in the payment screen.

My Make a Payment link shows a blank screen.
 

This usually happens when there is a pop-up blocker on your computer. Please make sure you are on a computer (tablets and phones have default blockers), temporarily turn off any blockers and try the link again. If the link still doesn’t load you may need to try a browser, i.e. Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. If you still need assistance please contact the USM Help Desk at 601.266.4357.

Once I click Make a Payment, I am being asked to login again.

You shouldn’t have to login again once you’ve logged in to SOAR. This usually happens when there is a pop-up blocker on your computer.

Where can I get information about my financial aid?

Is there a place I can find more information about scholarships I can apply for?

Yes! Please visit the Office of Undergraduate Scholarships page to learn more and be sure to register in the Golden Opportunities scholarship system.

What if a check used for payment is returned by the bank?

Please visit Returned Check Fee.

Can I request transcripts if I still have a balance?

Students cannot request transcripts with a balance. If this balance is set up on a payment plan, this policy is still upheld.
