Tuition and Fees

Policies governing the payment and refund of tuition, fees, and other charges are approved by the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System and comply with applicable state statutes. All charges are subject to change by legislative or regental action and become effective on the date enacted. For clarification of any matter relating to payment or refund of charges, a student should contact the office or administrative unit that originated the charge or refund.

Financial Responsibility

Students are expected to meet financial obligations to the University when they are due. Tuition is due on the date given in the academic calendar, and students are not entitled to attend classes unless the tuition bill has been paid in full or in accordance with an approved installment plan. Failure to comply with tuition payment deadlines may result in the cancellation of registration. Other charges are due within ten days after the bill is issued by the University, or according to any payment instructions on the bill. If the student does not pay the amount owed by the due date, the University may bar the student from registration and may withhold official transcripts and diplomas.

Payment of registration fees, for the exact amount due, may be made by personal check, by electronic funds transfer, or by credit card. Payments for larger amounts, the difference to be paid in cash to the student, cannot be accepted. All checks must be drawn on United States banks in United States dollars; collection charges that result from checks drawn otherwise are charged to the student.
