Debit Card Payments
A $50 minimum is required to set up a debit card. Debit cards may be requested in Anderson Central by either making a payment or requesting to use existing credit from the student's account. A debit card may be used for purchases at the following locations on campus: Martin Dining Room, Student Center Grille, and Java City (located on ground floor of Thrift Library). Debit Dollars do not roll over to the next semester.
Meal Plan Change Forms
All boarding students are required to have a meal plan and should complete a meal plan form prior to the start of the academic year. If a student neglects to complete the form, they will be assigned the 21 meal plan (no debit). Meal plan changes may be made until the third day of classes each semester online within My Housing.
Name/Address/Phone Number Changes

As a service to students, letters of verification of current enrollment are provided upon request for insurance companies, financial institutions, other colleges and universities, Southern Baptist Convention, scholarship committees, etc. Enrollment verifications are not processed until after the date of financial responsibility.

An official transcript is a copy of a student's entire academic record from Anderson University, bearing the official university seal and stamp. There is a $15.00 fee for each official transcript that is printed by Anderson Central. Anderson University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide official transcript ordering via the Web. You may find this link at www.studentclearinghouse.org. You can order transcripts using any major credit card. Your card will only be charged after your order has been completed. The site will walk you through placing an order, including delivery options and fees. Anderson Central attempts to process all official transcript requests within 48 hours, walk-in requests included. Official transcript requests will not be processed if you have a financial or academic hold on your account.
We encourage students to print their unofficial transcript through Student Self-Service. However, unofficial transcripts may be requested by completing our online form, in writing, in-person, or via fax (864-231-2008). There is a $5.00 fee for each unofficial transcript that is printed by Anderson Central. This fee is to be paid at the time the request is filed.
Anderson Central will place a hold on your student account if it is past due. The hold will restrict the release of records (grades, transcripts, and diploma) and registration for future semesters. If you do not make satisfactory payment arrangements with Anderson Central, your account will be referred to a collection agency for collection. If satisfactory payment arrangements are not made by the statement due date, a student's schedule will be dropped. To make payment arrangements or to request financial aid, please call 864-231-2070 or 1-800-542-3594.
