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 hold 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.

Residential students receiving financial aid  

Accepting a tuition and fee payment plan will change the due date of your tuition and fee charges but will not change the due date for housing and meal plan charges.  In some cases, students may need to select a payment plan for both tuition and fee charges and housing and meal plan charges.  When choosing a payment plan, please keep in mind that financial aid funds will apply to charges in due date order when financial aid is disbursed to the student account.

Example:  If a student selects a tuition and fee loan, the due date for tuition and fee charges will be extended to November 1 (Fall terms) or April 1 (Spring terms) while the due date for housing and meal plan charges are unchanged.

As financial aid awards or out of pocket payments are posted to the student’s account, the payments will first be applied to housing and meal plan charges since they are due first.  Once those charges have been paid in full, any remaining amount paid will be applied to the tuition and fee loan. If financial aid funds are exhausted before the tuition loan is paid in full, the student is responsible for paying the remaining loan balance by the loan due date.
