Checks should be sent a minimum of three weeks before published payment deadlines to ensure payment is posted by the due date. If payments are not received in our office by the end of the business day on the published payment deadlines, classes may be dropped for nonpayment and/or subject to late fees.


Payments can be made online through Tuition Payment PLUS with an electronic check, TransferMate international payment service, or credit card (with an additional fee. See below.). 

Electronic Check

Electronic Check payments are free of charge and can be made online only with the 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 myUVU.  Any check returned by the payer’s bank for any reason will be considered a “dishonored” check and all penalties for a dishonored check will be applicable.

 For more information, see the Returned Check Policy.

Credit Cards

Payments with credit cards are accepted online only and will be charged a non-refundable service fee of 2.85% (increasing to 2.95% 5/1/2023) (minimum $3.00). We accept most major credit cards including VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. 


Other Payments

Authorized Users

Students can give others (parents, employers, etc.) the ability to access their account information. In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), student financial records may not be shared with a third party without the student's written consent. Adding an authorized user is the student's written consent that the authorized individual may view his/her account information and make payments on his/her behalf. Please note that authorized users DO NOT have access to the student's stored payment methods, academic records, or other personal information.

Authorized users can log into Tuition Payment PLUS using their email and the password they were sent when initially added as a user.

Financial Aid or UVU Scholarships

If students have submitted the FAFSA and all additional paperwork requested by UVU's Financial Aid Office by the deadlines listed on the Financial Aid website, their financial aid should transfer to their UVU student account automatically sometime the week before semester classes start. It is the responsibility of the students to check their account to ensure their expected aid has transferred by the first day of classes. If it has not, students should consider enrolling in the payment plan to avoid the late fee that will be assessed beginning the first Wednesday of Semester classes, then contact the Financial Aid office immediately. 

Financial aid awards (including Pell Grants, Subsidized/Unsubsidized loans, or UVU Scholarships) will automatically pay the student's account first, even if the student is enrolled in the payment plan. Once full tuition and fees have been paid, any eligible remainder will be refunded to the student through a paper check or direct deposit. Please refer to our Refund Overview for more information about refunds.

Please remember: Students should check their requirements in the Financial Aid section of myUVU often to ensure all required paperwork and information has been submitted. It is the students' responsibility to follow up on any issues or questions with their financial aid award.

One more important note: If a student’s excess financial aid is refunded and the student later alters his/her schedule or adds classes, an additional balance may be owing.  Dropping classes may also cause aid to be taken back which would result in an outstanding balance. Students are encouraged to speak with a financial aid advisor before making changes to their schedule.

Third Party Payments or Scholarships

Third-Party Authorizations for payment or Third-Party/Off Campus scholarships should be sent after registration has opened for the current semester, but prior to all payment deadlines. If UVU hasn't received authorizations or scholarships by payment deadlines, students should enroll in the payment plan to avoid dropped classes or late fees.

All third-party scholarships are applied to student accounts as soon as we receive them.
