Payment plans and textbook loans
At this time UAOnline plans are only available for UAF degree seeking students and non-degree seeking students (UAA and UAS students, please contact your campus).
Personal payments (including UA College Savings Plan) will apply to the next payment due. Financial Aid payments from a student's FAFSA will apply to all payments evenly.
ATTENTION STUDENTS PAYING ON CAMPUS MONTHLY RENT! If you are interested in a payment plan, you must enroll in an "estimated payment plan" through the UAF Office of the Bursar. These payment plans are available in office only. The plans available online will not calculate correctly when you make your monthly rent payments which can result in late rent charges. Please contact the Office of the Bursar for more information or to enroll.
Spring 2018 Payment Plans are no longer available this late into the term. Please pay any balance due for spring in full.
