Bills & Payment Options

The Bursar’s Office will issue bills beginning in July for the fall semester charges and beginning in December for the spring semester charges. Financial aid will credit the account as funding is received. Refunds of financial aid received above university charges will not be made until the student’s aid is received and the student’s costs are completely covered.

Outside (non-university) awards are credited to a student’s Bursar account after checks are received by the university but not prior to the first day of class each semester. TU’s payment policy requires that arrangements for payment of term expenses be made prior to the first day of classes.

During the fall and spring terms, if financial aid does not cover all expenses either payment in full or enrollment in a monthly payment plan is required. Information on the monthly payment option is available from the Bursar’s Office.
