It's because kids change majors (which may mean a tuition differential), add classes, drop classes, go to part time, or decide not to attend at all.

Last week I checked on line and it said that we did not owe anything at this time. I think I will take another look today.

So it is common not to have to pay anything until after they have been in school for a couple of weeks? Wow, this is new to me. Cornell wanted my money up front when I was there nearly 30 years ago. In fact I think they wanted all your money at least a few days before you even started.

Does the school website have an online calendar of Important Dates or something similar? That usually mentions payment due dates.

It also sounds odd to me that they don't want the money in advance, although it makes sense that they wouldn't want to deal with making refunds. When my dd was in college 5-10 yrs ago we had to pay each term's fees about a month before classes started.
