Payment for ALL summer courses for which you are currently registered is due by the payment deadline for the FIRST scheduled class. Student bills are sent to the student’s assigned UAF email address or the email address indicated as preferred by the student in their Banner account.

Payment is due whether or not a bill is received.

Please note that a 2.85% ($3.00 minimum) transaction fee will be applied to all credit and debit card transactions, there is no fee for electronic checks.  If you are paying with a debit card or have a daily limit on your credit card, contact your bank to tell them you are paying university tuition and fees to ensure your card won't be declined.

There is no transaction fee for paying with credit card in person or over the phone.

There is no drop for non-payment in the summer. Unlike fall and spring semesters, all summer classes remain on your student account unless you drop them. This means you will owe for all courses for which you are registered - whether or not you attend. Be sure to drop courses you are not planning to complete.


University policy requires a financial hold be placed on your student account if you fail to meet your financial obligations. The hold will prevent any registration, transcript, or graduation activity.

Past due accounts will be sent to a collection agency. Interest, late fees, and/or collection costs will be added to your account. Past due debt may be reported to a local credit bureau. The University is authorized to garnish the State of Alaska Permanent Fund Dividends for payment of past due accounts.

If you miss the scheduled deadline for fee payment, you will be charged an initial late payment fee of $125.  Additional late fees may be assessed, as well, so it is important to contact the UAF Office of the Bursar to discuss payment options if you do not pay on time.

If you are given permission to add a class after the last day to pay tuition and fees, you will be charged a late fee of $50 which must be paid within five business days.

No late fee will be charged when:

  • you add a late start course during the regular registration period for that course,
  • or you change from one section to a different section of the same course,
  • or you add a course to replace a canceled course in which you were previously enrolled.

If, after you pay your tuition and fees, you are allowed into a class for which you have been wait-listed, payment must be made within five business days or late fees will apply. The late add fee is refundable only if all classes you have registered for are canceled.

Tuition may be refunded to students who drop courses depending on the date the action is taken. See Dates and Deadlines for refund dates. Material, field trip, technology, network and activity fees are only refundable during the 100% refund period. Refund processing is automatic for students who officially drop courses by published refund deadlines.

See the UAF Office of the Bursar website for more information on refunds.
