Student Accounts coordinates charges and billing for student accounts, including tuition 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 $500 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.**

Financial Terms and Conditions of your Registration
By enrolling in any course(s) at the University of Idaho, whether done using VandalWeb online or by submitting a registration request to an academic department or the Registrar’s Office, you are agreeing to the following financial terms and conditions, in addition to agreeing to abide by all U of I policies and procedures:
You understand that when you register for any class at the University of Idaho or receive any service from the University of Idaho you accept full responsibility to pay all tuition, fees, room and board and other associated costs assessed as a result of your registration and/or receipt of services 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. You promise to pay for all assessed tuition, fees and other associated costs by the published or assigned due date.
You understand and agree that if you drop or withdraw from some or all of the classes for which you register, you will be responsible for paying all or a portion of tuition and fees in accordance with the published Tuition Refund Schedule. You have read the terms and conditions of the published tuition refund schedule and understand those terms are incorporated herein by reference. You further understand that your failure to attend class or receive a bill does not absolve you of your financial responsibility as described above. If you wish to withdraw from the semester, you should consult the Student Withdrawals webpage or contact the Office of the Registrar.
You understand and agree that your registration and acceptance of these terms constitutes a promissory note agreement (i.e., a financial obligation in the form of an educational loan as defined by the U.S. Bankruptcy Code at 11 U.S.C. §523(a)(8)) in which University of Idaho is providing you educational services, deferring some or all of your payment obligation for those services. You understand an educational loan debt is not dischargeable in bankruptcy except when the court makes a specific finding of undue hardship.
You understand and agree that if you fail to pay your student account bill or any monies due and owing the University of Idaho by the scheduled due date, the University of Idaho will place a financial hold on your student account, preventing you from registering for future classes, requesting transcripts, or receiving your diploma.
Late Payment Charge:
You understand and agree that if you fail to pay your student account bill or any monies due and owing the University of Idaho by the scheduled due date, the University of Idaho will assess late payment charges at the rate of $100.00 per month on the past due portion of your student account until your past due account is paid in full.
Collection Agency Fees:
You understand and accept that if you fail to pay your student account bill or any monies due and owing the University of Idaho by the scheduled due date, and fail to make acceptable payment arrangements to bring your account current, the University of Idaho may refer your delinquent account to a collection agency. You further understand that you are responsible for paying the collection agency fee which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 33% percent of your delinquent account, together with all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, necessary for the collection of your delinquent account. Finally, you understand that your delinquent account may be reported to one or more of the national credit bureaus in accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 11 U.S.C. 1681.
Method of Communication
You understand and agree that the University of Idaho uses e-mail to your official UI email account (@vandals.uidaho.edu or @uidaho.edu) as its official method of communication with you, and that therefore you are responsible for reading the e-mails you receive from the University of Idaho on a timely basis.
You authorize the University of Idaho and its agents and contractors to contact you at your current and any future cellular or land line phone number(s), University of Idaho official email address(es) (@vandals.uidaho.edu or @uidaho.edu) or any future email address, or wireless device(s) regarding your delinquent student account(s)/loan(s), any other debt you owe to the University of Idaho, or to receive general information from the University of Idaho. You authorize the University of Idaho and its agents and contractors to use automated telephone dialing equipment, artificial or pre-recorded voice or text messages, and personal calls and emails, in their efforts to contact you.
Updating Contact Information
You understand and agree that you are responsible for keeping the University of Idaho records up to date with your current physical addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers by following the procedure on VandalWeb. The linked procedure is incorporated herein by reference. Upon leaving the University of Idaho for any reason, it is your responsibility to provide the University of Idaho with updated contact information for purposes of continued communication regarding any amounts that remain due and owing to the University of Idaho.
Financial Aid Award:
You understand that aid described as “estimated” on your Financial Aid Award does not represent actual or guaranteed payment, but is an estimate of the aid you may receive if you meet all requirements stipulated by that aid program. You understand that your Financial Aid Award is contingent upon your continued enrollment and attendance in each class upon which your financial aid eligibility was calculated. If you drop any class before completion, you understand that your financial aid eligibility may decrease and some or all of the financial aid awarded to you may be revoked.
If some or all of your financial aid is revoked because you dropped or failed to attend class, you agree to repay all revoked aid that was disbursed to your account and resulted in a credit balance that was refunded to you. You agree to allow financial aid you receive to pay any and all charges assessed to your account at the University of Idaho such as tuition, fees, campus housing and meal plans, student health insurance, student health charges, parking tickets, library overdue charges, parking permits, service fees, fines, bookstore charges, or any other miscellaneous charges, in accordance with the terms of the aid.
You understand that any federal Title IV financial aid that you receive, except for Federal Work Study wages, will first be applied to any outstanding balance on your account for tuition, fees, room and board. Title IV financial aid includes aid from the Pell Grant, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Direct Loan, PLUS Loan, and Perkins Loan programs.
Prizes, Awards, Scholarships, and Grants:
You understand that all prizes, awards, scholarships and grants awarded to you by the University of Idaho will be credited to your student account and applied toward any outstanding balance. You further understand that your receipt of a prize, award, scholarship or grant is considered a financial resource according to federal Title IV financial aid regulations, and may therefore reduce your eligibility for other federal and/or state financial aid (i.e., loans, grants, Federal Work Study) which, if already disbursed to your student account, must be reversed and returned to the aid source.
You understand that the University of Idaho uses email billing as its official billing method, and therefore you are responsible for viewing and paying your student account bill by the scheduled due date. You further understand that failure to review your bill does not constitute a valid reason for not paying your bill on time.
You understand that administrative, clerical or technical billing errors do not absolve you of your financial responsibility to pay the correct amount of tuition, fees and other associated financial obligations assessed as a result of your registration at the University of Idaho.
If a payment made to your student account is returned by the bank for any reason, you agree to repay the original amount of the payment plus a returned payment fee of $20.00. You understand that returned payments and/or failure to comply with the terms of any payment plan or agreement you sign with the University of Idaho may result in suspension of your eligibility to register for future classes at University of Idaho.
You understand that the University of Idaho is bound by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) which prohibits the University of Idaho from releasing any information from your education record without your written permission. Therefore, you understand that if you want the University of Idaho to share information from your education record with someone else, you must provide written permission by following the procedure outlined at the Student Accounts Forms and Downloads webpage. You further understand that you may revoke your permission at any time as instructed in the same procedure.
You agree to provide your Social Security number (SSN) or taxpayer identification number (TIN) to the University of Idaho upon request as required by Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations for Form 1098-T reporting purposes. If you fail to provide your SSN or TIN to the University of Idaho, you agree to pay any and all IRS fines assessed as a result of your missing SSN/TIN.
This agreement supersedes all prior understandings, representations, negotiations and correspondence between the student and University of Idaho, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the matters described, and shall not be modified or affected by any course of dealing or course of performance. This agreement may be modified by University of Idaho if the modification is signed by you. Any modification is specifically limited to those policies and/or terms addressed in the modification. You can review the full Terms and Conditions Agreement on the Student Accounts website.
Please contact Student Accounts at 208-885-7447 with any questions.
UI reserves the right to change the financial terms and conditions of your registration at any time. Therefore, you should periodically review these terms and conditions.
