Online Payments and Payments by Mail

When a student has selected courses, a Tuition bill notification emailed to the student's permanent email address approximately six weeks prior to the first day of class. Students may also access their tuition bill on line by logging on to the CaneLink system.  If payment or arrangements to pay have not been made with the Office of Student Account Services by the due date of the tuition bill, the student's courses may be cancelled. Online Payments are the preferred method for completing the required payment process.

Financial Anticipated Aid

If a source of financial aid other than college work study is not available for disbursement to the student's account but is expected to be disbursed at a later date during the semester, payment of that amount will automatically be noted as anticipated aid (with the exception of the PLUS and alternative loans which require a final guarantee from the lender before they can be anticipated).

Employer Reimbursement Deferment (ERD)

Final arrangements for the Employer Reimbursement Deferment must be made with a representative at the Office of Student Account Services prior to the start of the first day of the semester.

Special Third Party Billing

A written authorization is required for special billing arrangements. If a third party sponsor is to pay all or part of a student's tuition and fees, the Office of Student Account Services will bill the sponsor directly. The student should bring or send a copy of the award letter or sponsor agreement to the Office of Student Account Services before the first day of classes. Sponsorship payments are due within 45 days after the start of each semester.

Withdrawal and Refund

If students have selected courses, they must withdraw from those classes if they decide not to return to the University of Miami. Once students complete the required withdrawal forms, they will receive a refund using a pro-rated calculation based on the percentage of the semester the student has attended.  If a student has attended more than 60% of the semester, no refund on tuition will be given.

Tuition refunds are based on total tuition charges, exclusive of fees, and not on amount paid. Fees are mandatory and are effective the first day of classes. Refunds will be mailed to the student's permanent address. If a student has been awarded financial aid, the financial aid programs from which the funds were disbursed will be refunded in accordance with a formula required by Federal Law.

<--!Tuition that is assessed on an annual rather than semester basis (except for tuition for special contracted programs) will be refunded as though it were assessed in two equal halves.-->
