Payment requirements at time of registration

If 100% of your tuition, fees and housing is not covered by financial aid, you are required to make a non-refundable down payment of $250 prior to registration (the registration down payment is $125 for returning students). On-campus students are required to make a non-refundable dorm down payment of $250 at the time the room is reserved or at registration whichever occurs first.

Balance due dates:
Fall Semester – August 20
Spring Semester – January 14
Summer Semester – May 13

Charges for the upcoming semester are reflected in Student Account Center approximately 4 – 6 weeks before the balance due date.

The options for payment of balances remaining after awarded financial aid are:
– Payment of balance in full by cash, credit card, check by the balance due date.
– Establishment of a payment plan to satisfy remaining balance through Tuition Management Systems (Student Account Center, www.umobile.afford.com) by the balance due date.
**Payment plans are not available for summer semester.

Students will not be allowed to move on campus and will not appear on the class roster if financial requirements have not been met.

Final balances not paid by the due date or UM payment plans not paid according to the payment schedule will be subject to a $100 per month delayed payment fee. We do not offer a grace period after the final due date.

**If your account has not been paid by August 20 (Fall term), you may receive a courtesy call to ascertain if you need assistance completing financial aid applications or bill payment information.**

Dormitory students are required to have accounts paid in full in order to return to the dormitory after Fall break. Students may be prohibited from attendance for non-payment of balances when due. Campus Card privileges, which include dorm entrance and meal plan participation among other privileges, may be suspended if balance is not paid when due.

Tuition refunds:
See University of Mobile Financial Information Sheet and University of Mobile catalog for the last date you can drop a course and expect a
tuition refund. Generally, tuition is not refundable after the first two weeks of the course, even if the tuition for the course is within the 12-17 hour block pricing.

In other words, if you drop and add hours after two weeks you will be charged additional tuition for the hours added even if you are still between 12-17 total registered hours.
