The University is required to refund overpayments to students resulting from Title IV Financial Aid payments in accordance with Federal Regulations.  Students may elect to have their overpayment directly deposited into a checking or savings account. 

Note:  It is customary for medical students to borrow from several sources or to sign agreements with third party payers such as the Armed Forces, State or Federal governments to cover their educational costs as well as living expenses.  The University realizes that payments are not always received in a timely fashion because of delays at the bank or governmental agencies.  In the event that the student finds that he/she will not have adequate resources for living expenses, a petition for exception to our refund policy can be submitted.  This petition will need to be evaluated by the Office of Financial Aid, and must clearly demonstrate financial hardship.  The University will refund up to one month of living expenses, as determined by the Financial Aid Office, in anticipation of student loan and/or government checks.

Withdrawal Tuition Refund Policy:

A student who intends to withdraw from the University will be required to go through the withdrawal process.  He/she must first see the Academic Dean (COM) to obtain the necessary forms.  Verbal notice is not sufficient.  For purposes of computing refunds, the date of withdrawal recorded by the Dean after receipt of withdrawal forms will be used by the Business Office to compute any refunds due the student.

Note:  Refunds are not permitted for withdrawals during summer remedial courses.

Fall Tuition Refund

June 1 to Orientation 90%
During the first and second week of classes 50%
During the third week of classes 25%
After the fourth week of classes through Christmas Break None

Spring Tuition Refund

During the first four weeks of classes after Christmas Break 25%
After fourth week of classes after Christmas Break None

Refunds will not be made in the case of absence, suspension or dismissal.


Payment Schedule

Payment Options

Students may pay the college charges as they fall due each semester or in accordance with UNE's Monthly Payment Plan offered through Tuitionpay. They may also arrange to pay the total due by using a mixture of these payment arrangements.

The payment dates in the UNE sponsored payment plans cannot be deferred for the convenience of students using student loans, or other tuition payment programs. Both long and short-term financial arrangements should be made far enough in advance to assure payment on the required dates. Special problems or emergency situations can be discussed with the Student Accounts Office at the BiddefordCampus or the Business Office at the Portland Campus, at any time.

Option I: Payment by Semester

Approximately six weeks prior to the start of a semester, bills will be sent for the tuition, room and board, and fees. Payment of this bill is due by the start of the semester. The payment due is the total of all the semester charges less any previous payments or financial aid credits.

Option II: Monthly Payment Plans

The Ten-Pay Payment Plan spreads the full year charges over ten months beginning June 1st. This plan is offered through Tuitionpay and is designed to relieve the pressure of “lump sum” payments by spreading the cost over 10 months. There is an application fee. There are no interest charges.

In addition to these options for payment, UNE accepts Mastercard, VISA, and Discover.

Applicants are urged to apply by May 15th. Applications made after the start of the program (June 1st) must be accompanied by an initial payment sufficient to become current with the regular 10-month payment schedule. Applications for the 10-month plan will not be accepted after September 15th.

Tuition Refund

During the first two weeks 80%           
During the third week 60%
During the fourth week 40%
Over four weeks None

Refunds will not be made in the case of absence, suspension or dismissal.

Leave of Absence Tuition Credit Policy:

In the event a student desires to apply for a leave of absence, a Leave Form must be submitted to the Academic Dean.  The form will include the reason for leaving as well as the expected date of return.  An approved leave of absence will result in credit towards the student’s tuition using the Withdrawal Tuition Refund Policy.  Failure to return on the date agreed will result in a withdrawal.   

A student in the military reserves will be granted a full leave of absence tuition credit during a semester that cannot be completed because of forced call up to active duty.  

Important Notes

  1. Students should expect annual increases in the cost of attending UNE since the University is subject to the same inflationary pressures that affect the rest of society.
  2. The Board of Trustees, however, reserves the right to make changes in tuition and fees at any time.
  3. For their own protection while at the University, it is recommended that students carry their own local checking accounts to provide funds for incidental expenses and emergencies. People's United Bank, which is our preferred bank, provides a full-service ATM machine located in the Campus Center and in the Alfond Forum on the Biddeford Campus, and in the breezeway between Proctor and Hersey Halls on the Portland College Campus.  For those students who have People's United Bank checking accounts, ATM transactions are free of charge. Checks may also be cashed daily ($75 maximum) at the Student Accounts Office on the Biddeford Campus. 
  4. The University offers direct deposit to its students. Students with credit balances can have the excess funds directly deposited in the bank of their choice. The sign-up form is available on the Web. 
  5. The University will not be responsible for the loss of property on or off campus although it strives to safeguard students' property on campus.
  6. Students are expected to pay for textbooks at the beginning of the semester. Books, supplies and other items available at the University Bookstore may be paid for with cash, check, Master Card, VISA, and Discover.
