Initial Student Registration
Tuition and fees are due on, or before, the designated due date for the semester. Payment may be made by cash, check, money order, charge card (MasterCard, Visa, or Discover), e-check, BankMobile or financial aid credit. Payments may be made by mail, by use of the deposit box located in the front entrance of the Houchens Building, or at the Office of the Bursar.

Continuing Registration students are those who register during the priority registration period for the semester in question. View Payment Options.

If you add/drop via the web, view your account via ULink: LOG IN, Student Services, Tuition-Fees-Payment Options, Account. This should calculate your tuition and allow you to see the amount due.

Failure to receive the Summary of Account will not relieve the student of the responsibility for making financial settlement by the designated due date. Continuing registrations which are not financially settled by the designed due date will be placed on financial hold and affected students will be notified that they are not permitted to add or swap classes until their student account is financially settled. View Payment Due Dates.

Regular Registration
Students who register after the Initial Registration should be prepared to fully settle financial obligations by the last day to drop/add for the semester. View Payment Options. Failure to fully settle financial obligations may result in financial penalties.

Financial Penalties
Students whose accounts are not paid by the established semester deadlines may be subject to financial penalties. Students with unpaid account balances will have a Bursar Registration Hold placed on their student account. Students that have a Bursar Registration Hold become ineligible for further registration and transcripts will not be released until the student account is paid in full. Effective Spring 2015 a late payment fee of $100.00 may be assessed when student accounts are not paid by the last day to drop/add for the semester.

A return payment fee of $25.00 may be assessed when payment is not honored by the bank on which it was drawn. If restitution is not made within 10 days of notification, the student may be subject to financial penalties and/or legal action.

Debtors who do not make satisfactory payment arrangements on their past due accounts may have their accounts placed with a billing service. If not paid through the billing service, the unpaid account may be forwarded to a collection agency. It is the policy of the University that unpaid accounts will be assessed the costs and expenses of collection, including attorney fees.  Any E-check or Paper Check payment that is remitted on a Past Due by a previously enrolled student will be subject to a 21 day delay on having their Bursar Registration Hold lifted.

Withdrawal Policy
The effective withdrawal date is the date on which the withdrawal is processed in the Student Records System. This date is used in calculating any applicable tuition reduction.

Tuition Reductions
When a student officially withdraws from the University or from any course, or courses, for which hourly tuition rates apply, tuition charges will be adjusted according to the TUITION REDUCTION SCHEDULE. The full amount of tuition charges for the semester will be due unless the withdrawal occurs during the Tuition Reduction period. Course fees, special fees and laboratory fees are reduced only with 100% tuition reduction.

Financial Aid Recipients
Determinations regarding refunds of resulting credit balances will be based on regulations governing the financial aid awarded to the student. Federal regulations mandate that the borrower and/or award recipient has the right to cancel all or a portion of a federal loan or TEACH grant disbursement and have the proceeds returned to the lender. To request cancellation of all or a portion of your award,  contact the Financial Aid Office in writing. (Financial Aid Office, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY 40292)

Residual Funds Disbursement

All refunds are disbursed through BankMobile. BankMobile offers students the opportunity to establish direct deposit to a bank account of your choice or you can open a checking account with BankMobile and a debit card for your new checking account will be mailed to you.
