This tool is new as of Spring 2024. Only data from that semester onwards will be available in the Patron Portal.

To view your Invoice history, you must log into Patron Portal and navigate to the Billing tab on the left-hand side. There are two subsections: Open Invoices lists the invoices that haven't been submitted to WIO and History lists the invoices that have been sent to WIO and have the status of "Journaled." This tool is used to view the charge types listed below for transparency only. Payments and credits aren't processed through the Patron Portal, they are processed via WIO.

For more information about WIO, visit Understanding WIO Charges. For more information about Plotting charges, visit Plotting Costs & Estimates.
