Coming Soon - New Student Account Center Portal

We will be introducing some exciting new system enhancements to provide more convenience and ease for our families to manage their education expenses in a one-stop, real time environment.

This is a service Chicago State University will provide through the Student Account Center (SAC) adminis- tered by Tuition Management Systems (TMS).This online portal will allow you to view up-to-the-minute account activity, make payments, and enroll in an optional semester monthly payment plan.

What to Expect:

Due to federal student privacy regulations (FERPA), initial access to the Student Account Center is granted only to the student by logging in with school credentials at cougarconnect.csu.edu, selecting the “Student Resource” tab, then “View my Bill” under the My Financial Account section.

After logging into the Student Account Center, the student will have access to a portal that will offer the following features:

  • Account Summary Data – available 24/7 with real time updates, including financial aid.
  • Account Activity – also available 24/7 with real time updates.
  • View Available Payment Options - including enroll in a payment plan or make a one-time payment.
  • Ability to Share Account Access – Select “Manage Account Access” and share access with additional family members or other participants that are frequently critical partners in this process.An email with activation instructions will be sent to the invited participant.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of the Bursar at (773) 995-2470 or bursar@csu.edu.
