UR Student

View this PDF tutorial to view and pay your bill through UR Student. Payments made by a third party (parent, guardian, etc.) should use the 3rd Party Login to access this online payment option. You will first need to set up third party access to your UR Student account before this payment option can be utilized. Learn how to do so through this tutorial (PDF or video).

By Mail

Checks or money orders should be made payable to University of Rochester and your student ID# should be noted on the check. Payment must be in US dollars, and drawn on a US 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.

Tuition for UR Employees

University of Rochester may be eligible for special tuition discounts or benefits on UR courses they take as non-matriculated students. Learn more on our Employees page.

University employees interested in receiving a tuition benefit should visit the Tuition Benefits page for complete details regarding eligibility requirements and available benefits. Once an employee tuition benefit for a course is approved by Office of Total Rewards, it is credited to your student account’s balance. Please note: University of Rochester employee tuition benefits are not available to use for auditing classes.

The process for requesting tuition benefits must be completed each semester. Your tuition benefits are contingent upon your successful completion of the course and continuation of eligibility for tuition benefits, based on employment status with the University. If these criteria are not met, you will be responsible for payment of the course and any related fees. Additionally, your approved tuition benefit waiver is only for the courses listed. Any change in courses listed (add, drop, or withdrawal) will result in you being responsible for payment of the course and any related fees. For questions or additional information, contact the Office of Total Rewards at (585) 275-0476 or tuitionbenefits@ur.rochester.edu.

Financial Aid

Non-matriculated (or visiting) students are not eligible to receive University, federal, or state funding for continuing studies courses, as you are not currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program at the University of Rochester. The only available type of aid available to you are alternative educational loans. We recommend that you speak with a financial aid counselor first before pursuing alternative educational loans.


If you are dropping or withdrawing from a course, you may only be refunded a portion of the tuition paid. Please note that academic deadlines differ from the tuition refund schedule. View the tuition refund schedule for deadlines.
