Payment procedures | Fall 2020

In order to secure your registration each semester by the deadline, please take one of the following actions on the My Tuition Bill site

  •   Make a Payment     
  •   Click the “Pay with Financial Aid” button
  •   Click the “Confirm Attendance” button if you have a zero bill

Once your registration is complete, you will see a sentence on My Tuition Bill in green which states “your registration is complete and your courses are secure”. If you do not see this, you still have action to take. If you do not complete your registration process by your deadline, your entire registration will be cancelled and you may incur late registration fees when you re-register.

You must take an action prior to the published deadline or your entire registration will be canceled. Any balance on My Tuition Bill must be paid in full. If a student opts for the installment plan they must sign the installment plan note prior to taking any other action on their tuition bill. Payments must be made before each installment deadline.

If you have a zero amount due, you must either click the "Confirm Attendance" or "Pay with Financial Aid" button on My Tuition Bill by the payment deadline to complete your registration. A zero bill does not mean zero responsibility. Failure to take action by the deadline will result in canceled registration and denied University services.

Learn about our accepted methods of payment and our payment plans. If your registration is not complete by the steps described above by the payment due date, your registration will be canceled and you may incur a late registration fee to register again.

Early registration

Official fall 2020 tuition bills will be payable as of Tuesday, July 28th.

Add/drop

Payment must be received and posted to student's account no later than 5:00 PM, Friday, September 11th. Your installment balance will be adjusted if applicable.

Payment plans

Full Payment Plan. Full payment must be received and posted to your account no later than the payment deadline in the registration sequence table or as instructed at the time of registration. Confirmation of attendance must be made if the student has a zero bill.

Three-payment installment plan. Tuition and required fees may be paid in three installments. The first installment consists of:

  • One-half of the tuition
  • A nonrefundable $15 service charge
  • The full amount of any applicable fees such as:
    • The general property deposit
    • Late registration fees
    • International fees

The first installment is due by the deadline specified in the registration sequence table or as instructed at the time of registration. No late initial installment payments will be accepted; failure to pay the first installment by the due date will result in cancelation of registration. The installment plan is not available to students who register after the 12th class day or those who have paid their tuition with financial aid.

Students must electronically sign a promissory note before the first installment plan payment will be accepted. To sign the note, go to My Tuition Bill and click on the Installment Plan Note link.  Students who do not have an upgraded UT EID may obtain a temporary one through the IT Service Desk.

The second and third installments each consist of one-half of the remaining balance, adjusted for adds and drops. Bills for these payments are sent to the student's e-mail address. Paper bills are not mailed. These installments are due Friday, September 25thand Friday, October 23rd.

By selecting the three-payment installment plan you agree to pay the remaining tuition and fees on time. A $25 late charge is assessed for second and third installment payments received after the due date. If you select the installment plan and subsequently receive a financial aid award, your total tuition and fees will be deducted from your award at the time of disbursement.

Methods of payment

Electronic Payment. There are two options available for paying online directly from your bank account. To select either option visit My Tuition Bill. 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. You may pay by direct transfer of funds from your bank using a pre-established account if you have completed an Electronic Funds Transfer Authorization form. Authorizations may be completed online. This payment method requires an upgraded EID and cannot be used by anyone acting as an eProxy.
  • Credit Card. Go to My Tuition Bill to pay with MasterCard, Discover, Visa, or American Express. A convenience fee of 2.3% will be charged at the time of payment for all tuition and mandatory fee payments made by credit card. (Rate is subject to change.)

If payment is approved, the registration system will give you an authorization code confirming the transaction.

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.

Checks must be mailed. Your payment must be received and posted 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. Multiple checks must be sent together to ensure proper account posting. All checks must be drawn on a bank within the United States of America. 

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

Checks mailed using US Postal Service, including Express Mail overnight delivery, should be mailed to
The University of Texas at Austin
Student Accts Receivable
PO Box 7398
Austin TX 78713-7398

Checks sent using a commercial courier service, including FedEx and UPS, should be sent to
The University of Texas at Austin,
Student Accts Receivable Main 4
110 Inner Campus Dr. Stop K5308
Austin TX 78712-1669

Please contact the Texas One Stop regarding outside (non-UT) scholarships, as Student Accounts Receivable cannot process outside scholarship checks.

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 do not have an upgraded EID should contact the ITS Help Desk, help@its.utexas.edu, for instructions on how to do a temporary EID upgrade. Questions concerning tuition loans should be directed to Texas One Stop.

If your payment is returned to the University, for any reason, 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. For additional information regarding returned payments and charges assessed please see Student Accounts Receivable Returned Checks.

Zero bill. If your tuition is zero, you must still confirm your attendance before the payment deadline. If a third party, such as the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan, pays your tuition bill you must confirm attendance before the payment deadline. You may do this via My Tuition Bill. For additional information contact Texas One Stop. If you do not plan to attend classes do not confirm attendance and we will cancel your registration. Student Accounts Receivable will not bill the agency, scholarship, or account for the fees. If you have confirmed attendance and later choose not to attend you must follow normal withdrawal procedures.

Financial aid. If you are eligible to pay all of your tuition bill with your financial aid, you must do so by clicking the "Pay with Financial Aid" button on My Tuition Bill or pay any remaining balance by the payment deadline.

Questions about eligibility and financial aid awards should be directed to Texas One Stop.

If you are eligible for financial aid and choose to have charges paid directly from your financial aid account by the payment deadline, you will be tentatively registered. If the expected financial aid is not available to pay all of your tuition bill by the twelfth class day, you must make other arrangements to pay your bill in full by that date.

Students who elect to pay their tuition bill with financial aid are not eligible to change to the Installment Plan at a later time.
