Payment Options

Former students, who are not currently enrolled at the University, please contact us by phone 502-852-6843, or by email, for information on available payment plans.

Payment Due Dates are determined by the student’s initial registration date.  The Amount Due by the noted Due Date is the Total Tuition and Fees (including housing and dining) LESS the student’s Anticipated Financial Aid award.

Payment Due dates are as follows:

Spring 2016 Payment Plans

NOTE:  If you register during early registration, you are required to pay all charges on your account by the Bursar Office’s due date unless you have anticipated financial aid. If your anticipated financial aid is not enough to cover all of your tuition and related fees, you will need to pay the difference by the due date. If you register during drop/add registration, you have 72 hours or three business days to settle your student account balance to avoid any potential bursar registration holds or late payment fees. Any changes to the student’s schedule after the billing date may affect the amount due for the semester. Failure to receive a statement of account will not relieve the student of responsibility to remit payment by the designated due date.  Further information regarding due dates, payment information, and payment plans is available on the Bursar's website.

Students whose accounts are not paid by the established semester payment due dates may be subject to financial penalties such as a Bursar Registration Hold.  A Bursar Registration Hold may prevent a student from registering and/or obtaining an official transcript or diploma.  When the student account is paid in full, this Bursar Registration Hold may be lifted.  If your payment is remitted via a paper or e-check, a 21 day delay must pass before the lifting of the Bursar Registration Hold.  Effective Spring 2015 a late payment fee of $100 may be assessed when student accounts are not paid by the last day to drop/add.  A student whose payment is not honored by the bank on which it was drawn may be assessed a return payment fee of $25.00. If restitution is not made within 10 days of notification, the student may be subject to course cancellation, financial penalties and/or legal action.  Additional information on the financial penalties.

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. Course fees, special fees, and laboratory fees are reduced only with the 100% adjustment. Please review the tuition credit schedule.

Pay by Credit Card using the Summary of Account-Make a Payment

Why is there a fee for paying student account charges with a credit card?

The cost of providing the option to pay student account charges by credit card has increased significantly. The direct cost of service is passed on to the university from the credit card companies and is the cost of doing business via the Internet. The university does not make money from the assignment of credit card convenience fees. Students may avoid the fee by selecting one of the other payment options available. The university has other payment alternatives, such as e-check and payment plans, which makes payment less costly than using credit cards.

Terms and Conditions of Use

Credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express) may be used to pay student account charges. There is a convenience fee* charged for this automated service.  In order to remain compliant with the security requirements of our credit card merchant agreement, we are unable to process any credit card payment via telephone or in person. *Credit card convenience fees cannot be refunded as these funds go directly to an outside service provider.

Refund Procedures

If a credit card is used to pay student account charges, any resulting credit balance will be returned to the credit card that caused the overpayment.
