Service Levels and Semester Fees
Achieve Program service fees are billed to the student’s SIU Bursar account each semester. Subsequent semester fees are automatically billed prior to the start of the semester. An email notification is sent prior to the automatic billing at which time the student may respond with a choice of cancelling services or moving to a lower level of service.
