Accessing and Viewing Your Bill

When are bills sent?

Bills are generated monthly to reflect any recent activity on your account. View our list of monthly billing dates (above).

How do I see my bill?

UVM sends all student billing notifications electronically to the UVM email address. UVM billing notifications will also be sent to  any Proxy that the student has granted account and billing access.

  • View your bill through "View Account and Billing Activity."
  • Non-students and those with past due accounts receive paper bills.

How can I give billing access to someone else?

If someone is supporting the financial aspects of your education, you should set them up with Proxy Access.

Understanding Your Bill

What is on the bill?

Your bill is made up of billable charges, like tuition and fees, university housing and meals, and may also include other items like course specific charges. Learn more about costs of attending UVM.

How do I read my bill?

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:

  • 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.
  • Due upon receipt: Payment is considered due immediately.
  • An amount to pay: Payment or payment arrangements must be received before the 4 PM Eastern Time due date. Review more information on paying for UVM.

 

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.

Will I receive a tuition refund for dropping or withdrawing from a class?

Why do I have a hold on my account?

Failing to respond to the bill with full payment or payment information to cover the amount due will result in a late payment fee and a financial hold on your student account, preventing access to add courses, view grades, or get transcripts, and possible disenrollment.

Review Types of Account Holds.

Paying Your Bill

When are bills due?

Your bill will show your due date when you receive it. Bills are due in full (or appropriate response) by the due date indicated.

Payment must be received by UVM by the due date shown; Payments received after the due date, even if they are postmarked by the due date, will be considered late.

Due dates are based on when you register for classes. Dropping and re-adding classes within the same billing period will not result in a later due date.

SFS does not issue corrected billing statements. Please do not wait to make a payment.

How do I pay my bill?

Review the Payment Options page to view various ways that you can pay your UVM bill.

How do I apply for UVM tuition remission?

Apply for UVM tuition remission with the Benefits Office.

How do I make 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 sign up for Flywire.

How do I set up 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.

What if another UVM department has information on how my bill will be paid?

Students should communicate all billing matters with Student Financial Services. UVM cannot obtain payment information from other departments or colleges about each student.

Late Payments, Extensions, and Appeals

Can I get an extension on paying my bill?

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 and we cannot allow for grace periods.

What is considered a late payment?

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.

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.

What happens if I make a late payment?

Failing to respond to the bill with full payment or payment information to cover the amount due will result in a late payment fee and a financial hold on your student account, preventing access to add courses, view grades, or get transcripts, and possible disenrollment.

Initial on-time payments which are not paid by your bank (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. 

What if I want to appeal a late fee?

Fill out the Late Fee Appeal Form.

The balance due on your account must be paid in full (less the late fee amount) before submitting the Late Fee Appeal. Late fee appeals cannot be considered on an unpaid past due account.

Late fee appeal decision notifications will be emailed within 10 business days to the addresses provided and the student's UVM email address.

What happens if funds from a third party arrive late?

When more than one party is paying tuition toward a student account, all payments must be received by the 4 PM Eastern Time due date to be considered on time. 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,  or 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.
