Bills, Payment, and Refunds


Bills for mandatory charges are mailed according to your semester start date. Please refer to U-Online for your most up-to-date billing information. Typically, initial bills for the fall semester are due August 1, spring semester bills are due by early January and summer semester bills are due around May 15 (College of Osteopathic Medicine students' fall bills are due on June 15 due to the earlier start to their semester). Any charges, deposits, and fines you may 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.


A health insurance charge 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. The waiver/enrollment session for the 2017–2018 Academic Year is from June 26 through August 19. No action can be taken before or after that period. Please see our Health Insurance Video Tutorial for more information.


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 counts toward your payment arrangements. You may also find you need to seek additional loans and scholarships. 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. We urge students to have payment arrangements in place by each semester's bill due date to avoid additional charges.*

*$150 late fee and finance charges of 1% on the outstanding balance.

Methods of Payment

UNE offers a variety of options to pay your bill.


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. Our Refund Calendar will list date ranges for refunds each semester according to your program. Simply click on your program to find your dates by semester. We strongly recommend enrolling in Direct Deposit to expedite your refund. Please go to U-Online to find the Direct Deposit form.

Direct Deposit forms and accompanying bank letter or voided check must be sent through regular mail: 

11 Hills Beach Road, Biddeford, ME 04005
Emailed or faxed forms will be returned.

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 education-related necessities. Many personal money management tools exist, and we encourage you to utilize them (e.g., Mint, Credit Karma, etc.).

Withdrawal from UNE 


Tuition refunds for matriculated students leaving the University during a semester will be made as detailed below. Please be advised that withdrawal could affect your financial aid eligibility. The University's Tuition Refund Policy (below) will determine the percentage of tuition refunded and financial aid calculations to return federal aid determined based on the date of your withdrawal. These calculations can result in a balance owed. It is very important to contact us before withdrawing to discuss the impact on your financial aid.
