The Office of Student Accounts wants to help make sure that each incoming and returning student has completed all necessary paperwork required by High Point University in order to begin your Freshman year.  Below you will find a checklist of all necessary items required to begin the new academic year at High Point University.  Please note, if you are a returning student, you may have already completed some of these items in previous years.  FERPA forms, immunization forms, and Student Account Center access do not have to be submitted each new year.

FERPA Consent Form

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords certain rights to students concerning the privacy of, and access to, their education records. Students may choose to complete and submit this form to the Registrar allowing the release of their education records to specified third parties.  If you have already submitted a FERPA, it is not necessary to submit another.  It is valid for the duration of your HPU career.

Federal Student Loans – Accept or Decline

If you are offered federal student loans, then you can accept or decline these loans online through the Student Financial Services section of the  Student Financial Services Portal. Instructions for accepting or declining your loans online can be found in the SFS Self Service Guide.

In order to receive funding from the Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loan program, you must complete Entrance Counseling and sign a Master Promissory Note (MPN). These requirements must be completed before funds will be released from the federal loan center. These steps are further explained in detail within the portal.

Waiving/Accepting of Student Health Insurance

In order to stay in compliance with the Affordable Care Act, all incoming and returning full-time HPU students are automatically enrolled in our health insurance plan each academic year. If you already have your own insurance, you can waive our coverage by completing an online waiver.  If you wish to stay enrolled on HPU’s coverage, you will need to login and accept or waive coverage online.  You MUST decline or accept by September 2, 2023. No action being taken on your part will automatically enroll you in HPU Health Insurance Coverage and the charge will remain on your account.  

***Please note the last day to waive coverage is September 2, 2023.***

Waiving of Tuition Protection Insurance

High Point University is pleased to offer tuition protection insurance from A.W.G Dewar that covers a student up to 75% of their financial investment in the event of a medical withdrawal or leave of absence. All undergraduate students are automatically enrolled at the beginning of each academic year.  If you wish to waive this coverage, you may do so online by clicking the button below.

Please note that all residential meal plans are the same cost.

Refund Enrollment

If you expect to receive a refund due to financial aid or an overpayment of your student account, you will now be able to have your funds deposited directly into your personal bank account by using our new direct deposit service through TouchNet!  This is the same management service that now processes all of your tuition payments and monthly payment plans.  View the refunding portal instructions.
