The UNMC Office of Student Accounts website provides many answers to frequently asked questions.

Student Accounts is responsible for coordinating the billing and collection of tuition/fee payments, collection of all other necessary service charges and deposits, and maintenance of all necessary records.

Tuition is calculated approximately two weeks prior to the beginning of the term, students are notified via email of the student bill and due date.  If applicable, financial aid is applied to student accounts ten days prior to the start of the term.  Refunds are generated directly from the Nebraska State Treasurers Office and either mailed to the students billing address or direct deposit to student’s checking account as directed by the student.

Payment in full is required in accordance with the payment due date shown on the billing statement. Students may pay their bills on-line through My Records.  We use Nelnet as our vendor and offer e-check as a free service and all credit card payments will be assessed 2.7% service fee.  UNMC offers payment plans, also located on My Records, you may sign up for a 3 month or a 4 month payment option.  We accept payment via US mail, checks must be made payable to UNMC for the full amount. We accept walk in payments, cash, check or credit cards, credit card payments in house are assessed a 2.75% service fee. 

Students may not pay on another student’s account via credit card unless both parties are present at the Student Accounts office at the time of the transaction.

If a payment is past the due date shown on the billing statement, there will be a $100 late fee assessed and added to the total bill due.  This includes payments made through the mail that have a postmark later than the due date.  The student’s university file will then be placed on hold.  Students, who are unable to pay by the Due Date through no personal fault, may request a waiver of the late fee from Student Accounts.  

Students are encouraged to present authorizations for billing a third party, e.g., U.S. Government, foreign governments, Vocational Rehabilitation, National Guard, etc., to Student Accounts on or before the first day of class.  Authorizations not received by Student Accounts before the payment Due Date will be considered delinquent and a late fee will be assessed.

If your employer will reimburse you for tuition and fee costs (after grades have been issued) you MUST meet the regular payment deadlines set by the University or face action in accordance with a delinquent account.  This policy also applies to those who have tuition and/or fees paid by a UNMC department.  

Students who do not meet the deadlines specified above and in the Delinquent Tuition and Fee Policy (See Student Policy Delinquent Tuition and Fees) are subject to Administrative Withdrawal from UNMC (See Student Policy Administrative Withdrawal Policy).
