TROUBLESHOOTING

Why is my financial aid still pending?

If there are items on your To Do list in SOAR your student loans will not disburse. 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 shows your "Total Due" which subtracts any pending financial aid from current student account charges.

What is the Eagle Direct Textbook charge on my SOAR account?

For more information regarding Eagle Direct Textbooks, please visit Eagle Direct Textbooks.

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.
