Payment procedures | Summer 2018

Your registration is not complete until you have gone to My Tuition Bill and made arrangements to have your tuition bill paid or confirmed your attendance. Whether you are paying directly, via financial aid, or via a third party (grants, scholarships, Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan, etc.), you must indicate that you will attend and/or arrange for payment. If you do not pay your tuition bill in full or indicate that you are paying via financial aid or a third party, you are not registered and you may not attend classes or use University services. It is your responsibility to ensure that your registration process has been completed.

To obtain a tuition bill quote or to verify completion of registration, go to My Tuition Bill. If you have questions about tuition and fees, contact Tuition Billing at tuition@austin.utexas.edu or by phone at (512) 475-7777 (option 1).

After registering, review your methods of payment. Remember – the final step in the registration process is making sure your registration is complete and your courses are secure; if you don’t complete your registration by the deadline it will be canceled and you will lose all of your classes.

Early registration

You are expected to register at your earliest opportunity. Your tuition bill notification will be sent to your email address on file in the registrar’s office. If your address is not correct on the registration information sheet, or you wish to update your address after your initial registration access, update your address online, before 5:00 PM, April 27th. Your tuition bill will be emailed on May 1st to the address on file in the Office of the Registrar. If you do not receive your tuition bill, it is still your responsibility to complete registration by the deadline on the Student Accounts Receivable web site.

Undergraduates must make payment no later than 5:00 PM, May 17th. Graduate and professional students must make payment no later than 5:00 PM, June 8th.

Review your methods of payment. Remember— the final step in the registration process is making sure your registration is complete and your courses are secure; if you don’t complete your registration by the deadline it will be canceled and you will lose all of your classes.

Add/drop

Tuition bills will not be sent. You will not be sent a bill for added classes. After you have completed your add/drop transactions, go to My Tuition Bill for an add bill quote. These bills are recalculated overnight. If the changes made to your schedule result in the assessment of additional tuition and/or fees, you must make payment via the Web as in the preceding paragraph, or by check or money order. Payment must be posted to your tuition bill by 5:00 PM, June 12th for the first summer session and 5:00 PM, July 19th for the second summer session.  Failure to make payment by the appropriate deadline may result in the cancelation of your registration.

Review your methods of payment. Remember— the final step in the registration process is making sure your registration is complete and your courses are secure; if you don’t complete your registration process by the deadline your registration will be canceled and you will lose all of your classes.

Late registration

To pay by cash, check, cashier's check or money order, go to Bursar (Cashier) Office in MAI 8 (weekdays only 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM). Include your name and UT EID on the check.

Payment must be posted to the student's tuition bill no later than 5:00 PM on the payment deadline. Tuition bills will not be distributed. If you do not pay your tuition bill, you will not be registered.

Payment plans

The installment plan is not available in summer. Full payment or confirmation of attendance must be received no later than the payment deadline in the registration sequence table or as instructed at the time of registration.

Methods of payment

Electronic Bank Payment. There are two options available for paying online directly from your bank account. To select either option, go to My Tuition Bill online. Electronic payments that are returned to the University, regardless of the reason, will be treated the same as returned checks. Tuition and financial bars cannot be paid by electronic funds if you have a "no personal check" restriction with Student Accounts Receivable.

  • eCheck. You may pay online just as though you were using a traditional paper check. No authorization form is required. This option does not require an upgraded EID and can be used by anyone acting as an eProxy.
  • Electronic Funds Transfer. Students may pay by direct transfer of funds from their bank using a pre-established account if they have completed an Electronic Funds Transfer Authorization form. Authorizations may be completed online. This method of payment is not available to parents.

Credit Card. Go to My Tuition Bill online to charge the total amount due to your MasterCard, Discover, Visa, or American Express card.

If payment is approved, the registration system will give you an authorization code confirming the transaction. A 2.3% convenience charge will be added to all tuition and mandatory fee payments made by credit card.

Check or money order. All checks must be drawn on US banks in US dollars. Collection charges resulting from checks drawn otherwise will be charged to the student. All checks must be made payable to "The University of Texas at Austin" and must include the student's name and EID on the check.

Account owners of 529 accounts must submit a request to their 529 company in enough time that they can remit a check directly to the University following the payment guidelines below. (It can take 3-4 weeks before the University receives this type of payment.)

Checks may be presented to the cashiers in MAI 8 or may be mailed to an address listed below depending on how it is sent. Your payment must be received and posted to your tuition bill by the payment deadline or your registration will be canceled. Make checks payable to The University of Texas at Austin and include your UT EID on the check. To ensure proper posting, checks should be written for either the full amount of tuition due or the currently due (installment) amount displayed on MyTuition Bill.  If this is not possible, multiple checks should be sent together to ensure proper account posting.

If mailing checks by US Postal Service, including Express Mail, mail to
The University of Texas at Austin
Student Accounts Receivable
PO Box 7398
Austin TX 78713-7398

It is critical that you do not mail a check to the commercial courier address below through the US Postal Service.

Payments sent through a commercial courier such as FedEx, DHL and UPS, should be addressed to:
The University of Texas at Austin
Student Accounts Receivable K5308
110 Inner Campus Dr Main 4
Austin TX 78712

If your check is returned to the University, your registration will be incomplete. If payment is not received within ten calendar days of the returned check notice, you will not be registered for classes.

Cash. Do not mail cash payments. Cash payments must be presented to the Bursar (Cashier) Office in MAI 8 no later than 5:00 PM on the payment deadline date.

Tuition loan. You may apply for tuition loans online. An upgraded EID and password are required to create the promissory note and electronically "sign." Students who have not upgraded their UT EIDs may apply for a loan and then go to the Bursar (Cashier) Office in MAI 8 by 4:30 PM the same day or the next business day (but by 5:00 PM on the payment deadline) to sign a promissory note and complete registration. You will be required to present a photo ID. Questions concerning tuition loans should be directed to Student Accounts Receivable, (512) 475-7779 (option 2).

Zero bill. If your tuition is zero, you must complete the registration process by clicking the "Confirm Attendance" button before the payment deadline. If a third party, such as a Texas prepaid tuition plan, pays your tuition bill in full, you must still confirm your attendance before the payment deadline. You may do this via My Tuition Bill online. For additional information contact Student Accounts Receivable at (512) 475-7777, (option 1).

If you do not plan to attend classes, do not confirm and your registration will be canceled; Student Accounts Receivable will not bill the agency or account for your tuition if your registration is canceled. If you have confirmed and then choose not to attend, you must follow normal withdrawal procedures.

Financial aid. If you are eligible to pay all your tuition bill with your financial aid, you must complete your registration process by clicking the "Pay with Financial Aid" button via My Tuition Bill by the payment deadline.

Questions about eligibility or the Pay with Financial Aid button should be directed to the Office of Financial Aid.

If you are eligible for financial aid and choose to have registration charges paid directly from your financial aid account by the payment deadline, you will be tentatively registered. You must check your CASH page, Status Requirements, to ensure there is nothing "required". If, for any reason, the expected financial aid is not available to pay all of your tuition bill by the twelfth class day (fourth class day summer), you must make other arrangements to pay your bill in full by that date.

All non-UT Scholarships are processed by the Office of Financial Aid. Scholarship payments should be made payable to The University of Texas at Austin and include the student's name and EID to ensure proper posting.  Non-UT scholarship checks should be mailed to The University of Texas at Austin, General Accounting Section, 100 W Dean Keeton St, E3700, Austin TX 78712-1712.
