Tuition Payment Policy

As a University of Tulsa student, it is your responsibility to ensure that all educational expenses are paid during the semester in which they are incurred. If financial aid does not cover all of your expenses, you may either pay the balance in full or participate in The University of Tulsa’s Monthly Payment Plan.

Please contact The University of Tulsa’s Bursar’s Office at 918-631-2600 to obtain information regarding the monthly payment plan or visit the Bursar’s Office link on the TU website. A nominal fee will be assessed to establish a monthly payment plan. The University of Tulsa provides e-statements on a monthly basis on all accounts with an unpaid balance regardless of pending aid, payment plans, or financial support other off-campus sources.

You will receive an email at your utulsa.edu email address advising you that a statement is available for review in the TU Portal, click View and Pay my Account. It is your responsibility to ensure that your financial obligations to TU are resolved in a timely manner.

New students enrolled prior to August 1, 2019

In order to avoid enrollment cancellation, any balance not covered by financial aid must either be paid in full or establish a payment plan with 20% down payment by August 1.

New students who enroll after August 1, 2019

In order to avoid enrollment cancellation, any balance not covered by financial aid must either be paid in full or establish a payment plan with a 20% down payment due immediately upon enrollment.

Currently enrolled students

Any unpaid balance not covered by financial aid, must either be paid in full or establish a payment plan with 20% down payment. Payment must be received by the Friday prior to the start of the semester.

Currently enrolled students with an unpaid balance will not be allowed to enroll in subsequent semesters. Payments must be current to be in good standing. Payment plans cannot cover multiple semesters.

Non-payment per the terms above or a failed payment plan will result in cancellation of enrollment. A failed payment plan is considered to be two missed payments and or 2 payments that have been returned unpaid.

*Participation in a payment plan does not guarantee enrollment in future semesters or a release of transcript or diploma. A failed or delinquent payment plan may result in cancellation of enrollment, will result in an enrollment hold for future semesters, and denial of access to transcripts and diplomas. The payment plan would need to be brought current prior to release of enrollment in future semesters and to grant access to transcripts and diplomas.

If the account remains unpaid, the University reserves the right to suspend or withdraw you from classes; withhold grades, transcripts, and diplomas; deny you future enrollments; and require you to move from student housing.

The university accepts charges on valid VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards. A processing fee of 2.85 percent of the amount paid ($3 minimum) will be assessed against online student account payments that are made by credit card and debit card.
