Other Payment Options

In-person Payments

Cash, checks, and money orders may be presented during normal office hours. Debit/Credits will NOT be accepted in-person. 

Large cash payments are discouraged for security reasons.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires that University of Louisville report information about cash payments from individuals in excess of the $10,000 per academic term. Cash payments include one or more payments made in currency and coin. 

Individuals who make reportable cash payments will be required to complete an information document with your name, address, birth date, occupation and tax identification number (i.e. social security number or ITIN).  International students who do not have a U.S. tax identification number will need to provide an official state or country issued ID such as a driver’s license, passport or official ID card at the time the reportable payment is made. You may be subject to a monetary penalty by the Internal Revenue Service for failure to provide the information.

529 Plans

With a 529 College Savings Plan, the parent/student accesses funds and sends a check to the University. Every state (including Washington, DC) offers a state section 529 plan.

Please visit your 529 plan’s website to see what information is required to support a withdrawal request. All 529 plans have different forms and request different documents. Parents and/or students must contact their 529 plan administrator directly and follow their procedures to process a withdrawal.

If your plan requires a copy of your eBILL as proof of qualified direct educational expenses, you may print your statement from ULink.

Contact your 529 provider(s) at least ten business days prior to the tuition due date to ensure the University receives payment by the deadline. We recommend that 529 plan checks be sent directly to the University.

Checks should be made payable to University of Louisville and reference the student’s full name and seven (7) digit ID.

Mail your check to:
University of Louisville
Attn: Bursar's Office
Louisville, KY 40292
