The quickest and easiest way to locate your current balance (account balance, pending financial aid, combined current balance, and current amount due) is to check your TreeHouse Ladder account.

Locating Your Balance:

When you open up TreeHouse Ladder, it will default to the student view, where you should be able to see the “Student Alerts” section directly following “Student View” portion of TreeHouse Ladder:

  • Your “Account Balance” is the total amount charged to the account that has not been covered by any funds.
  • Your “Less Pending Financial Aid” is the amount of pending aid on your account.
  • Your “COMBINED CURRENT BALANCE” is the “Account Balance” less the pending financial aid that you are set to receive (assuming everything is in order with the Financial Aid office).
  • Your “CURRENT DUE” is the amount owed as of today’s date.  This excludes any future payment plan payments, as well as financial aid that is going to be received that has been applied by the Financial Aid office.

Business Office Graduation Status:

Note:  This will be a future feature of Ladder available in April of 2013.  Additional features will shortly follow.

Seniors that plan to graduate in the academic year will have important information regarding the status of their business account under the “Status of Graduation Application” portion of Ladder:
