Payment of Accounts

Account balances are available on MyCampus (www.mycampus.umhb.edu) 24/7. Paper statements are not mailed.

Tuition, fees, and room and board charges for each academic period are due by the due date set forth for each semester. Students receiving any type of financial aid (scholarships, grants, loans, campus employment, etc.) must have completion of all such financial assistance from the Financial Aid Office by the due date each semester or at the time of registration if the due date has passed. Registration is not complete until the Registration and Financial Confirmation online form is completed and all financial arrangements are made with the Bursar’s Office.

Payment may be made via check, cash in person in the Bursar’s Office, or credit card (VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express) when the card is presented in the Bursar’s Office. Credit card and E-check payments may also be made on the MyCampus website, http://mycampus.umhb.edu. Credit card payments are not accepted over the telephone.

Students should have available funds for the purchase of books and other supplies as these expenses are not charged on the registration bill. Credit cards may be presented for payment in the UMHB Bookstore.

Exclusive arrangements have been made with Tuition Management Systems for families who would like to make monthly payments. The monthly budget program is not a loan and carries no interest. A participation fee of $55 enables the payer to make nine (9) equal payments to cover projected annual school costs. The first payment is due July 5, but the program may be entered into later by including all previously due payments with the application fee. For those students who will be attending only one semester, a four (4) payment plan is available for $40. Life insurance which covers the unpaid contract amount is included at no additional cost.

The amount to be financed is determined by subtracting all financial aid (including campus work, if applied to account balance, and PLUS loans) from the total of tuition, fees, and room and board. Books and personal expenses may not be budgeted and must be paid for at the time they are incurred. Students may call Tuition Management Systems toll free at 1-800-722-4867 or contact via the web at www.afford.com to assist them in calculating their monthly payment requirement. If a student is dropped from the monthly budget plan due to nonpayment, the balance owed on the student’s account will become due immediately.

UMHB will not release transcripts until all accounts have been settled. The University also reserves the right to withhold a student’s access to campus services, including MyCampus and UMHB email, and to restrict a student’s participation in university events, including commencement, for failure to make complete payment of a student account. UMHB may additionally withdraw a student for failure by the student to demonstrate proper responsibility in the handling of financial matters as related to the University.

Additional charges made to correct errors or omissions are payable upon receipt.

For any check not honored by a bank, a returned check fee of $25 will be charged and check writing privileges on campus may be revoked.

 

UMHB utilizes the UMHB Sadermail account as the official means of communication account notices to students. It is the student's responsibility to periodically check their Sadermail accounts.

Late Payment Fee

Payments are due by August 1, 2013 for the Fall semester, and December 13, 2013 for the Spring semester. Summer and Minimester due dates are posted each term on the Bursar's website and in the financial notices sent to students upon registration. Students who are not enrolled and current in the Tuition Management System (TMS) payment plan whose account balance is $100 or greater will be assessed a late payment fee of $50. Accounts must be paid in full by the dates below to avoid the late payment fee:

September 1 for the Fall semester

February 1 for the Spring semester

May 19 for May Minimester
June 10 for Summer I

July 8 for Summer II

For students enrolled in the payment plan, if monthly payments are not sufficient to cover account balance by the last payment due date for the payment plan enrolled, the late payment fee may still be assessed to the student’s account each month. Please verify monthly payments to TMS will be sufficient to cover the outstanding balance.

This non-refundable fee will be assessed each month thereafter until the account is paid in full or referred for collections.

Collection Costs

The student will remain responsible for all unpaid balances incurred. In the event an account becomes delinquent and is placed with an outside agency for collection, all collection costs and/or legal fees will be the responsibility of the student.

Refund Policy

Registration in the University is considered a contract binding the student for charges for the entire academic period. However, a student finding it necessary to withdraw from UMHB may secure an official withdrawal through the Registrar’s Office. This official withdrawal must be accomplished before any consideration can be given by the Business Office to granting refunds.

A student who must drop a course because of excessive absences, poor work, or similar causes, who withdraws without notice, or who is expelled or asked to withdraw is not entitled to a refund. Failure to attend class or simply notifying an individual instructor will not be regarded as an official withdrawal.

Fall or Spring semester:

100% refund of tuition prior to expiration of 4th semester day, (4 calendar days) scheduled from the first day of the start of the semester

Transcript of University Credits

A transcript of university credits is an official copy of a student’s permanent record, bearing the University seal and the signature of the Registrar. Copies of students’ transcripts are available upon written request to the Registrar’s Office.

To request a transcript, students may visit the Registrar's website at: http://registrar.umhb.edu/how-request-transcript

Transcripts will not be released if the student owes money to the University. This includes, but is not limited to, money owed to the library, bookstore, health center, business office, or any other department or agency considered a part of the University.
