The institution shall provide the notice required by Subsection (a) to the student in a prominently printed statement that appears on or is included with:
the student's tuition bill or billing statement, if the institution provides the student with a printed bill or billing statement for the payment of the student's tuition; or

The notice may be included in any other e-mail sent to the student in connection with the student's tuition charges for that semester or other term.
