Payment Obligation

By registering for classes at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), you acknowledge financial responsibility for the confirmed courses resulting from this registration, and all fees assessed to your student account (including the student health insurance fee). You also accept responsibility for any additional costs related to your enrollment at the University including, but not limited to, room, board, parking, library fines, books and other class materials and any other departmental or college charges. By enrolling, you acknowledge that you are receiving an educational benefit from UIC, and that the costs associated with that benefit are an extension of credit from the University which is due and payable upon the date specified (normally 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.   UIC does not mail billing statements to students. If you are a currently enrolled student, you will receive e-mail notification early each month, at your university e-mail address, indicating when tuition and fee statements are available online. The online statement, called the E-Bill, allows you to see your charges in an easy-to read, user- friendly format.

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 PENALTY 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.

In addition, you understand that the University of Illinois at Chicago may refer your past due account for collection and may authorize legal action against you for the collection of this debt. You agree to be liable for all reasonable collection costs, including attorney fees, court costs, and other charges necessary for the collection of your past due account. You understand that if you allow your account to go into delinquent status, your registration, release of your transcript and diploma will be prohibited until such time as your account is paid in full.

Payment Plan

The University of Illinois provides an optional Payment Plan which allows parents/students to spread payment of anticipated tuition, mandatory fees, room, and board expenses over 12 installments for the full academic year (or 6 installments for the fall term only or spring term only). The Payment Plan is an alternative option to the regular University payment policy and is administered by Nelnet Business Solutions. Student Accounts will not be assessed monthly late payment fees while enrolled in the Payment Plan.
