    Tuition Payments

    Inquiries concerning payments should be directed to the Office of the Bursar at (804) 289-8147 or via email at bursar@richmond.edu.

    Full payment or plan of payment is due to the Student Accounts Office by Monday, the first day of the term. The responsibility to meet all payment deadlines is yours, even if you do not receive an invoice. Students may view their student account on BannerWeb.

    If you are dropped from class due to non-payment, you are still responsible for the tuition and fee charges at the time of withdrawal according to the University Refund Policy.

    FULL PAYMENT is due by the first Monday of the term whether or not an invoice has been received.

    Electronic Invoicing and Payment Options

    The University of Richmond provides electronic invoicing and payment for all enrolled students. Students receive a monthly electronic invoice notification at their UR email address advising that their invoice is ready to view and pay. All students have the ability to grant permission to others (parent, guardian, spouse, employer, etc.) to access their student account information. Anyone with access will also be emailed when the invoice is ready to be viewed and paid.

    With electronic invoicing, students and authorized payers are able to make payments through a variety of methods. Electronic payments may be made using Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover (with a vendor service charge of 2.75 percent of amount charged) OR you may pay by electronic check at no cost. Also, the invoice may be printed and mailed with a check. Another payment option is the monthly installment Tuition Payment Plan. Payments of cash and checks are accepted at the Student Accounts Office located in the Queally Center.

    Invoice and Payment

    The University is committed to offering a very secure online account management system and is partnered with QuikPAY®. The technical architecture/security of the QuikPAY product uses intrusion detection and firewall systems to protect the network. Our contract with them ensures that we are compliant with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Gramm-Leach Bliley (GLB) Act. The QuikPAY system is available 24/7 world-wide. Additional benefits include viewable invoices and payment history as well as convenient access for authorized payers that students have set up. Students may pay online by going to BannerWeb and clicking on Student Services/Pay Tuition and Fees. Authorized payers will be able to access invoices and pay through the QuikPAY website once given authorization by the student.

    Paying by Check

    Installment Payment Plan

    The University offers an installment plan administered by Nelnet/TMS. This tuition installment plan provides students with a low cost option for budgeting tuition. This installment plan is NOT a loan program. There is no interest or finance charge assessed on the unpaid balance due to the university. Nelnet/TMS offers a payment schedule choice of three or four payments per semester. There is a $35.00 nonrefundable enrollment fee per semester. The Monthly Plan is not available for courses offered during the summer terms.

    Please visit the website for more information or to enroll in a plan richmondSPCSMBA.afford.com or call (800) 722-4867.

    Tuition Insurance Plan

    The University of Richmond offers a tuition insurance plan to students enrolled in the School of Professional and Continuing Studies. This plan is designed to protect the tuition and fees of students who become ill and are unable to complete their semester by alleviating — if not eliminating — any financial loss. To get a quote or learn more about tuition insurance, call GradGuard at 1-888-427-5045 or visit their website at GradGuard.com/tuition/richmond. Your application must be submitted no later than the first day of the term.

  • Terms

    Payment Terms

    The University reserves the right to increase the fees listed herein, if conditions should make such a change necessary or advisable. Changes will be announced as far in advance as possible.

    Payment is due by 5:00 p.m. on Monday the first day of the term or if arrangements for payment are not on file with the Student Accounts office. Failure to pay in a timely manner may result in withdrawal from class. A student is still responsible for meeting all payment deadlines, even if an invoice has not been received. A student may review his/her account at any time on BannerWeb using Student Services > Pay Tuition and Fees. If a student is dropped due to nonpayment, he/she is still responsible for tuition and fee charges according to the University Refund Policy at the time of withdrawal. Payment is due upon registration for classes added on or after the first day of the term.

    No credit is given for a term’s work nor a degree conferred until all charges have been satisfactorily settled. Failure to make satisfactory financial arrangements can result in delay of graduation, denial of registration privileges, removal from classes, withholding of transcripts and/or referral to a collection agency.

    If the University deems it necessary to engage the services of a collection agency or attorney to collect or to settle any dispute in connection with an unpaid balance on a student account, the student will be liable for all reasonable collection costs including attorney's fees, and other charges necessary for collection of this debt. Accounts referred to a collection agency are reported to the credit bureau(s).

    A veteran or eligible person who is entitled to use Post 9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) or Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Services (Chapter 31) benefits will not be subject to any penalty, assessment of late fees, denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, nor will they be required to borrow additional funds to satisfy their financial obligations in the event of a delayed payment from the Veteran’s Administration.

  • Withdrawal

    Withdrawals

    Students are matriculated by semester. If a student withdraws from classes or is administratively withdrawn from the University for whatever cause, a refund of fees for a fall or spring semester shall be made in accordance with the University's refund policy, based on the following schedule. This schedule is adapted for summer terms.

    Students who withdraw from the University and who are receiving any financial assistance may be required to return such assistance per Public Law 668.22 and institutional policy. The University of Richmond complies with all federal regulations governing recipients of federal Title IV funds. Information regarding financial aid refund policies is available from the Financial Aid Office.

    The amount of the refund is based on the date the written withdrawal notification is received in the Office of the Dean. Any special fee is nonrefundable after the first day of class. The full schedule of refunds is available on the Student Accounts website.
