Payments and Refunds


All students are required to complete a Financial Responsibility Agreement when onboarding in UR Student. Students are unable to register for classes until this agreement is completed.

Payment Plan Options:

Undergraduate matriculated students: Monthly Payment Option consisting of 4 monthly payments for each semester. The payment due dates are 8/10, 9/10, 10/10, and 11/10 for the fall semester and 12/10, 1/10, 2/10, and 3/10 for the spring semester. A $25 Administrative Fee will be charged to your account each semester when this plan is chosen.

Graduate matriculated students: Monthly Payment Option consisting of 3 monthly payments for each semester. The payment due dates are 9/10, 10/10 and 11/10 for the fall semester and 2/10, 3/10 and 4/10 for the spring semester.

Note: Students must elect the monthly plan option at the start of each academic term, if desired. Payment plans are not available to non-matriculated students.


Payments made by a third party (parent, guardian, etc.) should use the Third Party Login to access this online payment option. Students will first need to set up third party payment to grant access for UR Student bill pay. Third Party setup guidance is found on this reference card and video.

Checks should be made payable to University of Rochester and the student ID# should be noted on the check. Payment must be in U.S. dollars, and drawn on a U.S. bank.  Postdated checks submitted cannot be held for deposit. A returned check charge of $20.00 will be charged when a check presented in payment of a student’s account is not honored by the bank.

Payments sent via U.S. Mail or Express Service should be addressed to:

University of Rochester
Office of the Bursar
330 Meliora Hall
PO Box 270037
Rochester, NY  14627

Late Payments and Financial Holds

If full payment is not received by the due date, the University will assess a late payment fee of 1% of the amount past due.

A financial hold is placed on all accounts with a past due balance of $100 or greater. Students with a financial hold are not allowed to register for the next semester, receive transcripts, participate in housing lottery, or receive diplomas. Students with delinquent balances at the end of a semester may be withdrawn from the University. All prior year balances must be paid in full before the start of the next academic year. Students who submit a check or ACH payment that is rejected by their bank, are subject to cancellation of registration for the current semester and withdrawal from the University unless acceptable arrangements are promptly made.



For any student considering withdrawal or leave of absence, please see:
University Policy for voluntary or involuntary withdrawal, leave of absence, or going inactive
