VCU goes paperless

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Paper bills will soon be a thing of the past at Virginia Commonwealth University.

The big change takes effect August 2nd—just in time for the start of fall classes.

Just like everyone else these days VCU is getting ready to cut costs, and they are "going green" to add to it.

To see your school bill you'll now have to check it online. The school will mail students enrolled for the fall semester to remind you that those paper bills will go away.

Tuition and fees can also no longer be paid with VISA. Those using other cards will be assessed a 2.75 percent convenience fee. The school says it will save over $1 million a year in processing fees.

VCU is quick to point out this is not an unprecedented move. They note other school in Virginia, like Virginia Tech, UVA, James Madison, and several others, have already made similar changes.
