Student Accounts coordinates charges and billing for student accounts, including tuiton and fee charges, room and board charges, family housing charges, and health center charges. Students are billed by email in July for fall semester and in January for spring semester. Students are also billed by email monthly for unpaid balances. Charges incurred over the course of the semester are considered due in full within 10 days of the posting date. Accounts with balances due greater than $100 will be blocked from adding/dropping/registration. Official transcripts will not be released for students owing the university. Transcripts may be released for students with payment plans, providing their balance is current. If you need transcripts at the end of the semester, please remember to order them after the account balance is paid and before the next semester begins. See the Billing and Payment Information page for specific information on payment plan options and deadlines. For questions call (208) 885-7447.
**Failure to receive a bill does not relieve students from payment responsibilities. **
**Student registration is not canceled for non-payment.**

You agree to pay all applicable UI tuition, fees, room, board, and any other charges on your student account by the due date, regardless of your expected reliance on third-party resources that may include, but are not limited to, financial aid, employer reimbursement, outside scholarships, government assistance or other external resources.
Student Account and Bankruptcy

You understand that failure to attend classes and failure to pay the applicable tuition and fees does not constitute a withdrawal. If you wish to withdraw from the semester, you should consult the following website: http://www.uidaho.edu/registrar/registration/withdraw or contact the Office of the Registrar. You remain fully liable for all tuition and fee charges that remain on your student account after the applicable refund deadline passes. Please see Fee and Tuition Refunds for additional information about the tuition and fee refund schedule.
Repayment of Financial Aid
You understand that you are responsible for repayment of Financial Aid monies if you withdraw or fail to attend classes or participate in distance learning courses. The amount to be repaid will be reflected in your student account and shall be all of the Financial Aid disbursed, or a portion, as determined by the institution in accordance with applicable laws.
Collections Costs and Credit Reporting

You also understand that once your student account debt is placed with a collection agency, your debt will be reported to the appropriate consumer reporting agencies or other agencies in accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 11 U.S.C. 1681.
You authorize UI and its respective agents and contractors to (i) contact you regarding your student account debt at the current or any future number that you provide for your cellular or other personal phone or other wireless device; (ii) utilize automated dialing equipment or artificial or pre-recorded voice or text messages when contacting you; and (iii) contact you through current or future email addresses you provide.
