How do I get my bill? How am I notified of my bill?
Currently registered students (and Authorized Payers) must retrieve their student account billing information online. The student account shows real time account transactions such as: payments received, and charges and credits for tuition, fees, and housing.
Click here to login to your student account, follow the login instructions for your campus, then select "Student Account", and then "View Account".
Note: Authorized Payers access their student’s account billing information by logging into the Authorized Payer website, and selecting "View Account".
Each month students are notified via their University e-mail account reminding them to view their student account for recent activity and to pay any amount due by the due date. Through UI-Pay, students may provide one additional email address to allow a parent, guardian, spouse, or other individual to receive these monthly notifications. To receive notification at additional e-mail addresses, select "User Preferences" from the UI-Pay menu.
Can my parent view/pay my bill?
FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) is a federal law that gives eligible students certain rights with respect to their education records. FERPA prohibits the University from releasing specific student account information to anyone other than the student without the student's authorization. USFSCO utilizes the Authorized Payer functionality within UI-Pay as a FERPA release authorization
When a student grants Authorized Payer access to an individual, the student is also granting USFSCO permission to share specific account information with that Authorized Payer. If the student does not want an Authorized Payer to receive specific account information, the student must cancel that individual's Authorized Payer access
Students may authorize a parent, guardian, spouse, sponsor or other individual to view their student account, make online payments, and receive FERPA protected account information. These individuals are called Authorized Payers. To learn how to set up an Authorized Payer click here.
When is my bill due?
Payment on your bill is due on the 28th of each month. Tuition and fee charges for fall and spring terms are billed in September and February respectively. Summer term charges are billed in June and/or July depending on enrollment. Please see the calendar for more information.
What happens if I don't pay my bill by the due date?
Student account balances are expected to be paid in full by the due date. These charges, in accordance with University of Illinois Policy, apply to all customers billed through the Student Accounts Receivable system, and are subject to a LATE PAYMENT CHARGE of $1.00 or 1.5%, whichever is greater, per month on any amount not paid when due. Such accounts will also be assessed a PAST DUE charge of $2.00 per month IN ADDITION to the LATE PAYMENT CHARGE. A financial hold will be placed on any delinquent student account. This hold will prevent registration, release of transcripts, and may also prevent the release of a diploma. There is no payment plan for past due amounts.
