Bills, Payment and Refunds

Bills

You will receive a bill for mandatory charges for each semester in which you are enrolled. The fall semester's bill is mailed in mid-June, and payment arrangements must be in place by August 1. The spring semester's bill is mailed in early December, and payment arrangements must be in place by January 9. Any other charges, deposits, or fines you incur are billed monthly. You can access your most current billing information with these simple instructions.

Please keep in mind that with loans, lenders often deduct loan fees before monies are disbursed, which can impact the amount you need to borrow. You should calculate loan fees prior to finalizing loan requests. Please see Federal Loan Fees for more information.

Health insurance charges will appear on your fall semester bill. If you provide proof of comparable insurance, you can waive this fee. You must visit University Health Insurance to enroll or waive the health insurance.

You must notify us in writing of all financial assistance you will receive from outside sources like private scholarships, tuition waivers and certain veteran’s educational benefits. Federal regulations require that we consider all other tuition assistance before we calculate the financial aid award UNE can offer you.


Payment Arrangements

The financial aid offered to you by UNE in the form of scholarships, grants, and direct loans counts toward your payment arrangements. Please visit Financing Your Education for detailed information on your options. As long as all disbursement requirements are met, your funds will pay out to your UNE account. Any outstanding balance may be paid using one or more of the following methods of payment.

Methods of Payment

UNE offers a variety of options to pay your bill.


Refunds

If the amount of money applied to your account exceeds your charges, you will receive a refund. Student refunds can only be issued after loans disburse (pay out) to your account. The loan disbursement schedule is available to download. Please allow 7-10 days after your disbursement date if you have enrolled in Direct Deposit; please allow at least 10 days if you are receiving a paper check. Requests for refunds that are generated from non-Title IV Aid (i.e., personal payments and scholarships) must be submitted in writing.

We strongly discourage you from using refunds for anything other than college-related necessities. Many personal money management tools exist, and we encourage you to utilize them (e.g., Mint, Budget Tracker, etc.). Please visit our Money Matters page for resources to help reduce your borrowing and make responsible financial decisions.
