Tuition Payment and Refund Information

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 Business Office (918-631-2600) to obtain information regarding the monthly payment plan or visit the Business 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 from other off campus sources. You will receive an email at your utulsa email address advising you that a statement is available for review in your WebAdvisor account. It is your responsibility to ensure that your financial obligations to TU are resolved in a timely manner.

Payment of current semester charges or payment arrangements must be made by 5:00 p.m. on the first day of classes. Payment arrangements may include the monthly payment plan, pending financial aid, or a combination. Payments not made when due will be subject to a finance charge of 1 1/2% per month.

Currently enrolled students with an unpaid balance may be eligible to enroll in a subsequent semester provided that:

  • The student balance is not in excess of $5000.
  • The student balance includes current semester charges only.
  • The student has established an university approved payment plan, at least one payment of that plan has been processed, and the terms of the payment plan allow for payment in full of the current unpaid balance by the start of the semester in which the student wishes to be enrolled.

A failed payment plan will result in cancellation of enrollment.

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.

Refunds: If a student withdraws from his/her courses at the university, he/she may receive reduction of tuition based upon the following schedule. The reduction shall be calculated from the date on which application for withdrawal is processed. The University shall follow federally mandated refund schedules as they apply.

Non-attendance of classes does not constitute an official withdrawal or drop.

Refund Schedule
First day of classes = 100%
Day 2 thru end of first week = 90%
Second and third week = 50%
Fourth thru seventh week = 25%
Remainder of semester = 0%

Financial aid recipients receiving refunds will have their refunds returned to the proper aid accounts as determined by the Student Financial Services Office pursuant to Federal guidelines. The prescribed order of refund distribution is to FFEL programs, Federal Perkins Loan program, Federal Pell Grant Program, and to other Student Financial Aid Programs.”
