Your UVM bill

  • UVM sends all student billing notifications electronically to the UVM email address. Your UVM email account should be set up right away so that you do not miss important communications.
  • UVM billing notifications are sent to the student and to any Proxy that the student has granted account and billing access. If someone is supporting the financial aspects of your education, you should set them up with Proxy Access.
  • Bills are generated monthly to reflect any recent activity on your account. View our list of monthly billing dates (above).
  • View the bill through your myUVM Portal as a student, or through Proxy Access if you have been set up as an account and bill Proxy by clicking on the link, View Account and Billing Activity which will provide access to the current and previous billing statements, amount to pay, as well as current account activity. This link also provides a place to submit additional resources which you plan to use to pay towards the amount due, along with the ability to submit payments electronically.
  • Non-students and those with past due accounts receive paper bills.
  • SFS does not issue corrected billing statements. Please do not wait to make a payment.
  • Due dates are based on when you register. Dropping and re-adding classes within the same billing period do not result in a later due date.

Review and respond to your bill

  • We are unable to extend the due date, and cannot allow for grace periods.
  • Bills are due in full (or appropriate response) by the due date indicated.
  • Review billing messages (shown on your statement or in your billing notification) for important information related to your bill.
  • For pending resources, make sure all appropriate action has been taken.
  • Your bill indicates a negative or zero balance: Review your bill; if you agree with the pending resources listed, we consider your account to be "settled" and no payment is due at this time.
  • Your bill indicates due upon receipt: Payment is considered due immediately.
  • Your bill indicates an amount to pay: Payment or payment arrangements must be received before the due date. Review more information on paying for UVM.
  • Failing to respond to the bill with full payment or payment information to cover the entire amount due will result in a late payment fee and hold on your student account, preventing access to registration, grades, and transcripts, and possible disenrollment.
    • Initial on-time payments which are not paid by their banks (for reasons of insufficient funds, closed accounts, etc.) will be assessed a late payment fee.
    • Initial payments which are post-dated past the due date will be assessed a late payment fee.
  • Review our common charges (see below), if you have questions about any charges on your bill.
  • Learn more about billing for housing and room rate adjustments.

Make your payment or set up payment arrangements

  • Review paying for UVM to view various ways that you can pay your UVM bill.
  • Planning on utilizing UVM Tuition Remission? Apply for tuition remission with the Benefits Office.
  • Making an International payment? University of Vermont has partnered with Flywire to streamline the tuition and fee payment process for our international students. Flywire offers multiple payment options and excellent foreign exchange rates. They’ll ensure your payment arrives safely and accurately. To complete the payment process, please connect to Flywire.
  • Employer payments and third party billing:
    • If your employer will pay for your class after you have completed and passed the course you will need to pay your UVM bill up front and seek reimbursement directly from your employer. UVM does not offer deferred billing.
    • If your employer will pay for your class up front and payment is not contingent on final grade, you should provide your employer with a copy of your bill, and work with them to expedite on-time payment for the due date. You may want to consider granting them account and billing Proxy access. Ultimately, you are responsible for your bill.
    • If your payment is from a Federal or State Program, or UVM affiliated organization, a purchase order should be submitted to SFS. Once our office receives the purchase order, we will bill the organization and credit your student account for the amount reflected on the purchase order.

Common billing misconceptions

Some common misconceptions about billing at UVM

True: Payment in full (or an acceptable payment arrangement) is expected by the 4 PM Eastern Time deadline on the bill to be considered on time. See payment options for additional information.
False: As long as my bill is postmarked by the due date, I won't be charged a late fee.

True: Students should communicate all billing matters with Student Financial Services. UVM cannot obtain payment information from other departments or colleges about each student.
False: Another UVM Department has information on how my bill will be paid.


False: I was told that funds from a third party will arrive by the due date.
True: Please do not assume that when your bill or a portion of your bill is being paid by loans, external scholarships, 529 Plans, trust funds, monthly payment plans, that the funds will arrive before the 4 PM Eastern Time due date. You should respond to the bill by telling us exactly how and in what amount these funds will be paid.


False: I can just pay the part of my bill that I'm responsible for and not worry about the rest.
True: When more than one party is paying tuition toward a students account, all payments must be received by the 4 PM Eastern Time due date to be considered on time.


False: I will just get an extension on the payment due date.
True: While we understand that there may be an extenuating circumstance that might make paying on time difficult, we are unable to extend the bill due date.

Why doesn't my recent payment show on my bill?

Your billing statement will only show information (including balance) as of the date the statement was issued. SFS does not re-issue bills.

You can find your current Amount to Pay by viewing information under the View Account and Billing Activity link. This screen also shows payments and charges which have occurred on the students account since the bill was generated.
