Bills will be generated in the summer and your official due date for the first semester is August 1st!

OneLife Tuition Billing and Payments are processed through Cairn University.
(Except Non-Credit Students)

Visit Self-Service to access your current account balance, financial aid awards, and set up a payment plan or make your tuition payment. Cairn University uses Nelnet Campus Commerce.  This self-service account will also allow you to access your unofficial Cairn transcripts later. 

Students, in order for your parent(s)/ GUARDIAN(S) to see your bill, you will need to add your parent(s)/guardian(s) to your self-service account (see Step 6 for more details). 

In order for your personal support system to communicate with Cairn about anything specifically your bill you must complete the online FERPA form to be submitted directly to Cairn University.

8. Health Forms

The following forms must be submitted prior to Move-In Day. They can be completed and uploaded together below. The sooner you can submit them the better. Ideal due date is July 15th. 

**Pleasant View Students Only: Due to being on a retirement facility, Pleasant View requires a 2-step TB process this can be done at your doctor’s office.

  • For PPDs, please schedule e the QuantiFERON gold PPD blood test. This is a one and done appointment, which is awesome! Results typically take approximately 4 days to receive back.  

If you already did the two step process please submit this accordingly. However, if you can change this with your doctor before your first appointment that would be ideal!  

Two Options for Submission:

Please Upload the Meningitis Waiver, Physician's Health Evaluation Form, and Record of Immunizations altogether through the Health History Report


Upload them altogether here on your OneLife Student Portal with the "Upload Files" button directly below.

Please be thorough and accurate with this form. Student needs to complete this form, but parents should review it as well.

Summer Task: All full-time students are required to have health insurance coverage. Students will receive an email from Cairn’s insurance processor to their Cairn email account when the insurance website is open. This email will give students a link to the website and the login instructions needed to either waive or enroll in the University student health insurance.
