Student’s Tuition and Fees bill must be paid in full by the published payment deadline for each semester. There are several ways students can pay this bill, the biggest one being through financial aid.
Financial aid will automatically be applied to a student’s tuition and fees. Students must have applied, accepted financial aid and satisfy any missing requirements in order for aid to disburse. Any additional money a student receives from their financial aid after it’s been applied to their bill, will be issued as a refund.
Installment Plans and Payment Extensions
If you have an outstanding balance for your tuition and fees, you could consider an installment plan or a payment extension called a Tuition and Fee Loan.The Installment Plan allows students to pay their balance in 3 payments. The first installment is due on the tuition and fee deadline and requires 30% of the balance to be paid. There is a $16 fee for this. The next two installments will be due later in the semester. Installment plans for tuition and fees are only available for fall and spring semester. Find out more about installment plans. You may also choose to extend your tuition and fee deadline to the end of the semester by selecting a Tuition and Fee Loan. No money is required on the up front if this option is selected, and a 5% interest fee is charged for this option. Find out more about the Tuition and Fee Loan.
Texas Tomorrow Fund and other 529 Plans
If you invested in the Texas Tomorrow Fund or another 529 Plan and wish to use this to pay for your student’s tuition and fees, this is done through the Office of Fiscal Services. For more information about how to use this to pay your student’s tuition and fees, please visit Fiscal Services’ webpage or email email@example.com.
3rd Party Payments
If your place of employment or another outside agency will be paying your tuition and fees, you must notify Fiscal Services in order for payments to be applied. Please note that these do count as financial aid and you must disclose the amount that you plan to receive. You can do this by submitting an External Resource Form for the appropriate aid year. If you do not disclose this information and aid has already been offered or disbursed, there may be adjustments to your financial aid to include these amounts.
