Tuition & Fees
Tuition & Fees Policy
Tuition and student fees are established by the Utah State Board of Regents. Tuition and other charges, as listed in the catalog and other UVU publications, are subject to change without notice. Students are advised to consult current information at www.uvu.edu. The University policy regarding payment of tuition and fees states that all tuition and fees are due and payable to the Business Services Department (Cashier) at the time of registration. Checks made for an amount larger than the total tuition and fees due will not be accepted.
This policy applies to all registration periods.
Registration not paid for or covered in full by Financial Aid by the published payment deadline:
Students who thus default on all or any portion of their tuition and fees will be suspended from further registration and records activity at the institution until their accounts are paid in full.
The registration and records activity suspension will be carried forward to perpetuity until all past-due tuition and fees are paid in full.
Past due tuition accounts may be reported to the Credit Bureau and/or turned over to an outside collection agency for collection.
Tuition Surcharge Policy
Students are encouraged to avoid accumulating credit hours beyond those needed to successfully complete their identified program of study. A student may be charged the excess credit hour surcharge for credit hours in excess of 125% of a student’s program of study. The surcharge amount to be charged is double the current year’s resident tuition rates for the number of credit hours taken for resident students. Non-resident students will continue to pay non-resident tuition.
For further information on this policy, please contact your advisor or the Graduation and Transfer Services Office.
Tuition Refund Policy
The tuition refund policy is established by the Board of Regents and amended by each college/university to fit their programs. Utah Valley University refunds for students who withdraw from school or drop classes are calculated as follows:
Thereafter, the refund periods for instructional cycles other than the semester are extrapolated from the above schedules.
A Petition to the Refund Policy Form can be obtained from the Office of the Registrar.
Check Cashing Procedures
The University will not accept two-party checks. Checks written to UVU must have the writer’s UV ID number, local address, and phone number on the face of the check. Two forms of identification are required at all campus check-cashing locations.
Checks written up to $5 over the amount of the purchase may be cashed at the Bookstore. All other campus locations accept checks for amount of purchase (or payment) only.
Electronic payments require a bank routing number and account number. Payments can be made from a personal checking or savings account. Corporate checks, credit card checks, home equity, traveler’s cheques, etc. are not accepted. Electronic check payments are processed through Tuition Payment PLUS, accessed through UV Link.
A dishonored check is any check returned by the student’s bank for any reason, including, but not limited to, insufficient funds, no account, bad account, stop payment, unauthorized account, etc. Checks written that later have a “stop payment” placed upon them will be considered as “dishonored”.
A service charge will be assessed on each dishonored check unless the student can document in writing from the bank that it was a bank error.
Students who have current dishonored checks will not be allowed to receive grades and/or transcripts, make changes in registration, register for future semesters, finalize graduation, or pick up non-Title IV checks that are disbursed by UVU.
Special Lab & Course Fees
Some classes require fees in addition to standard tuition and fees. The online class schedule indicates such lab and course fees.
Late Tuition Payment
Tuition payment deadlines are published in the Semester Student Timetable.
All unpaid account balances after the deadline will be assessed a 20% late fee (not to exceed published maximum per semester).
Late Registration Fees
Special approvals are required to register late for a class. The length of time for each of the late registration periods is relative to each part of term and is governed by the Student Timetable. Students who add classes during the late registration period must finalize the process by paying for appropriate late registration fees in addition to their tuition/fees according to the published dates on the Semester Student Timetable.
