Validation means that you
1) do not have a delinquent balance from a prior semester,
2) you are registered for a course(s, and
3) you have satisfied your financial obligation to the University, either by paying the balance in full, making the first deferred payment, or on the University payment plan.
If a student has a third party sponsor, the sponsor may pay the student account balance in full upon receipt of an invoice from the University. If the sponsor will pay only a portion of the semester charges, the student is responsible for paying the difference by the due date in order to be validated.
If a student is not validated, he/she is not an officially enrolled student. Without validation, a student may be purged from classes, may be unable to access class information via Blackboard and/or may be removed from housing.
