Tuition and Fees
Your tuition and fees are due in full on or before the first week of each course. An exception may be made if you have completed all required financial aid paperwork prior to the start of the term and your financial aid is significant enough to cover all current term charges. There will also be a limited exception for those students using tuition reimbursement, military tuition assistance or direct bill as their method of payment. You are responsible for the amount that financial aid does not cover and it must be paid in full on or before the first week of the each course.
Acceptable forms of payment are:
- personal check
- money order
- credit card (Visa or MasterCard)
You are encouraged to speak to the Financial Aid Office if you are unable to pay the balance owed. University of the Rockies will withhold transcripts, degree verifications, and grade reports until accounts are paid in full.
Delinquent Accounts and Financial Hold
Your account is considered delinquent if full payment is not received the first week of the course resulting in an outstanding account balance. Any student with a delinquent account will be put on a financial hold and not be allowed to register for a subsequent term until payment is received in full or a payment plan is established and approved by the Financial Aid Office. If you have a delinquent account, you will not be permitted to take comprehensive exams, obtain copies of official transcripts, or graduate.
An administrative fee will be assessed to your account for any outstanding balances, late payments or insufficient funds.
On-Campus Student Payment Plans
Payment plans allow you, as an on-campus student, to pay your outstanding account balance in two equal monthly installments guaranteeing that the balance will be paid in full by the end of the term. All payment plans must be approved by the Financial Aid Office and if you are more than one week late in making payments on the payment plan, you will be assessed a $25 late fee and may be administratively withdrawn from the program until your account is paid in full.
Current arrangements for students on a payment plan as of August 22, 2006 will be honored but reviewed every term. During this review the payment plan is subject to change to accommodate new term charges, otherwise no exceptions will be made.
Statements will be mailed out on a monthly basis only to students on payment plans. These statements will be sent to the address on file, you are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of this information with the Registrar's office. The statement will reflect charges for current registered classes only. If a change is made to your schedule and results in an increase of the tuition bill for the term, you are accountable for making sure the updated payment is made.
A refund check is only available when you have a credit on your account after tuition and fees have been paid in full. If you authorize the school to retain funds and then would like to request a refund, you must fill out a Disbursement Request Form which is available online. If you do not authorize the school to retain funds the refund check will automatically be generated and mailed to the address on file within 14 business days.
