Fees and Financial Aid

Paying Fees

At registration, you are expected to pay all charges due for the entire semester. This includes tuition and fees, room rent, meal ticket costs, student activity fees, health fees and deposits. In addition, any charges unpaid at the end of the previous semester are due and must be paid before you can re-enroll at the university. If you have a past due debt with the university and submit an enrollment form and payment for the current semester, you will not be enrolled into your classes and the payment will be applied toward your past due debt.

Registration is not complete until you have paid your fees.

If you're unable to pay all charges at the beginning of the semester, you may apply for a payment plan. The Business Office provides applications. Approval is based on your expected receipt of financial aid, your credit history at UAF and your academic background including your GPA and the number of credits you've completed at UAF.

Provisions of the payment plan are as follows:

  1. You must pay a minimum of 40 percent (40%) of all assessed fees at fee payment unless payment is guaranteed by financial aid. Guaranteed financial aid is defined as aid: a) which you applied for at least three months prior to the start of the semester, and b) which you are eligible to receive when it arrives, i.e., your student status and/or grades will not prohibit distribution of the aid to you.
  2. The balance is due in a maximum of two equal payments. A third payment is due for those with costs in excess of $1,500. You will be informed of these due dates when the payment plan is approved.
  3. A $40 processing fee is added to the total amount due.
  4. Proceeds of any financial aid will be used to pay all outstanding fees when the financial aid is disbursed to you, regardless of the payment due dates.
  5. You must complete an application for a payment plan and give it to the cashier during fee payment. You will be charged a late fee if you fail to do this.
  6. Each delinquent payment is subject to a $35 late fee. You are responsible for meeting this obligation; no bills are mailed.

Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver - Alaska residents 60 years of age or older may enroll in UAF credit classes and have their tuition waived. Enrollment is on a space available basis only.

  1. Tuition is not waived for non-credit, CEU or self-support classes. To waive tuition, senior citizens must inform the fee payment cashier that they are eligible for a senior citizen waiver. Senior citizens must pay all additional course fees; the ASUAF fee may be waived.
  2. Registration using a senior citizen tuition waiver for payment is permitted only beginning with the first day of instruction and must be completed by the late registration deadline. No late registration fees are assessed.
  3. Senior citizens may register before the first day of classes; however, they must pay full tuition and fees (use of senior citizen tuition waiver will not be accepted). Senior citizens electing to register and pay full tuition are subject to all payment deadlines. Students who do not pay or drop before the published deadline will be dropped from their classes for non-payment. Refunds will NOT be available to senior citizens who drop classes and then re-enroll in the same classes using a tuition waiver during late registration.

Consequences of not Paying

UAF may withhold transcripts, diplomas or final grade reports from you if you haven't paid all financial obligations to the institution. If you're delinquent in paying any amount due the university, registration for succeeding semesters may be withheld.

Your registration, meal plan and housing contract may be canceled at any time if you fail to meet installment contract payments or financial obligations. If you fully satisfy your financial obligation and are allowed to re-enroll, you will be charged a $100 reinstatement fee. The registration process is not complete until you have paid all fees and charges due the university.
