Academic Policies and General Information
By registering for courses, students are entering into a financial arrangement with UVM and accept responsibility for charges billed to their UVM account. The online registration system will generate charges based on enrolled credit hours. All tuition, fees, and room and board charges are payable in full upon billing. Students who enroll in advance for course will receive itemized statements of applicable semester charges through their University e-mail, with instructions to settle in full by a specific date (usually three weeks before classes begin). Advance payments are accepted; checks should be made payable to The University of Vermont. Any checks or payments received by the University may be applied to outstanding balances.
Students who cannot meet their financial obligations because of unusual circumstances should contact the Office of Student Financial Services as soon as possible before the payment due date.
Students who have not satisfactorily completed financial arrangements by the announced due date will be assessed a late payment fee and a hold preventing registration and access to grades and transcripts and may have their enrollment cancelled. Disenrollment will automatically place a registration hold on a studentís account that will prevent re-enrolling until the student has contacted Student Financial Services to discuss the account. A $50 fee must be paid to allow re-registration.
The University reserves the right to withhold registration material, the diploma, degree, and all information regarding the record, including transcript, of any student who is in arrears in the payment of tuition, fees, or other charges, including, but not limited to, student loans, dining and housing charges, telephone toll charges, and parking fines.
Seriously delinquent accounts may be placed with an outside collection agency and/or reported to the national credit bureau system. Students are responsible for all late payment fees, collection charges, attorney fees, interest and any other costs and charges necessary for the collection of amounts not paid when due.
Late Payment Service Charge
Students who do not settle their accounts by the due date will be charged a late payment service charge. Please refer to the Payment Information and Financial Policies information on the Student Finances Web site then choose a payment process.
The University offers a Monthly Payment Plan to students/parents who desire to budget annual costs in monthly installments. Specific information is mailed to parents of incoming and returning students in the spring by visiting www.uvm.edu/sfs/bill.
