Funds given to students through the University of Utah will be handled in the following manner:
- The awarded funds will be entered into the computer system at the University Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.
- At the beginning of each semester, if a student is eligible and is registered appropriately for the required number of classes, the awards will pass from the University Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid computer system to the Income Accounting Office system and will credit the student's tuition account. The account will also show the charges a student has incurred for institutional expenses at the University.
- After awards have been passed to a student's account, and after the first day of classes, if there is a credit for the student, a check will be mailed to the student at the address the student has reported to the Registrar's Office. A student may request the credit amount to be direct deposited through a request to the Income Accounting Office.
- If charges are greater than awards, the student should pay the bill that is showing on his/her tuition account by the tuition due date. The student may view the bill through Campus Information Services. For late-arriving awards, there will be regular passes of awards during the semester. Usually, these passes occur two to three times a week.
Because remainder checks will be mailed AFTER the semester has begun, the student must be prepared to pay startup costs for each semester before having that semester's student aid to help.
Students are Responsible for the Timely Payment of Their Own Tuition and Fees
If you have not received your Conditional Financial Aid Notification and completed your file by the tuition payment deadline, you should have identified an alternative source of funds. Under such circumstances, you may wish to investigate tuition payment options available through the Income Accounting Office. The initial tuition billing statement is not mailed to you. To view your billing statement, and make payments online using a credit card or e-check, log into Campus Information Services and select Tuition Bill/Pay Tuition. If you do not wish to pay online, then please print a copy of your bill to accompany your check payment.
Check your Tuition Bill in Campus Information Services (CIS).
