Registration and Payment of Fees

Fall and Spring Semester Registration   are completed by using the ISIS telephone system each semester. Instructions for registering are available in the Course Offering Directory and on-line at: www.virginia.edu/~regist. Upon completion of the registration process, an individual is classified as a registered student. Not attending classes does not alter the registration status or the assessment of tuition and fee charges. Once registered for a semester, a student may terminate registration only through official withdrawal from the University.

Payment and Late Payment   The final date for payment of student account bills for University charges is printed on the bill mailed to the student. The payment due date for the fall semester is August 19, and for the spring semester it is usually in the first week of January. However, failure to receive a bill does NOT waive the requirement for payments when due. Any student who fails to make payment of the amount due by the specified payment due date is assessed a late payment fee as follows:

Late fee$50
Late Fee for TAs, RAs, and Veterans$10

Payment of tuition and fees by a check that is returned from a bank as non-negotiable causes the appropriate late payment fee to be assessed if the repayment is not received by the published payment deadlines, and a $20 service charge is assessed. Checks returned for non-sufficient or uncollected funds are immediately redeposited by our bank a second time.

Postdated checks should not be submitted as the check date is not scrutinized and the check is immediately processed for payment regardless of the date of the check.

Students are billed for late fees after registration.

The University does not accept credit card payments for tuition, fees, or University housing and dining charges.
