Installment Pay Plan
Texas State Law (Texas Education Code, Section 54.007a) allows students to pay tuition and mandatory fees in installments over the course of the semester in accordance with a payment plan established by University. Students selecting this option must apply for the option online, accept the terms of the plan, and make the first installment payment prior to the payment deadline.
Students can view the installment agreement and apply for an installment payment plan online through their myUHV Student Account at https://www.uhv.edu/myuhv/ using the following navigation:
Student Financials ⇒ Payment Plans ⇒ Installment Payment Plan
Registration will be canceled if the promissory note is not accepted AND the first installment payment is not posted before the payment deadline. The installment plan is an option available during the Fall and Spring terms only.
The amount due for the first installment payment will equal 20 percent of total tuition and fee charges plus a $20 installment service charge (nonrefundable). The amount due for subsequent installments will equal 20 percent of the total tuition and fee charges. Drop and add activity may affect a student’s installment schedule. Students are responsible for reviewing their account online after making schedule changes and paying any additional amount prior to the payment deadline. A $25 late fee will be charged for each installment payment that is late. Upon selecting the installment plan students are still responsible for future installment payments if courses are dropped or the student withdraws after the tuition refund period has expired. Students who fail to make full payment on time, including any late fees, may be subject to one or more of the following actions:
- Financial stop on student’s record preventing registration at any UH campus;
- Withholding of grades, degree, and official transcripts;
- Other penalties and actions authorized by law or university policy.
Tuition and Fee Loans
Tuition and fee loans are available to help students pay tuition and fees to avoid enrollment cancellation.
Students can request a tuition loan online through their myUHV Student Account at https://www.uhv.edu/myuhv/ using the following navigation:
Student Financials ⇒ Payment Plans ⇒ TPEG Tuition Loan or Institutional Tuition Loan.
No funds are issued to students for a tuition and fee loan but a transaction is posted to the student’s account allowing tuition and fees to be paid on the loan due date. Tuition and fee loans cover 100% of total tuition and fee charges for the current semester. The loan duration is 90 days in the fall and spring terms and 30 days in the summer sessions.
TPEG tuition loans are not assessed a loan origination fee. These loan funds are limited and the loans are disbursed on a first come first serve basis. TPEG loans do not adjust to cover courses added after the loan has been selected. Only one TPEG loan will be issued per student per semester. Institutional tuition loans are assessed a loan origination fee (nonrefundable) which is calculated at a rate of 1.25% of the original loan amount. The institutional loan amount will automatically adjust for schedule changes made after the loan has been selected.
Book loans are available to help students pay for books and supplies.
Students can request a book loan online through their myUHV Student Account at https://www.uhv.edu/myuhv/ using the following navigation:
Student Financials ⇒ Payment Plans ⇒ Book Loan.
Students will have a choice of three delivery methods for receiving book loan funds. Students can choose to have refunds deposited into a bank account of their choice, open a BankMobile Vibe Account, or receive a paper check through the USPS. If no refund preference is selected, a paper check will be mailed to the student 14 days after the book loan has been refunded. The book loan amount is calculated at a rate of $40 per semester credit hour up to a maximum of $720. The book loan amount is calculated based only on the number of credit hours a student is enrolled in at UHV. No interest or service charge is assessed on book loans. Loan duration is 45 days in the Fall & Spring sessions and 30 days in the summer sessions. Only one book loan per student per session will be issued.
