In accordance with Virginia law, in-state students who initially entered a Virginia public
institution starting with the fall 2006 semester will be assessed a surcharge for any credit hours
over 125% of their degree program requirement. Exceptions may apply when credit hours are
required for an additional program.
Students may encounter other fees, fines and deposits depending on their course
of study or specific needs. These could include:
Fees are required for credit by exam, housing contracts, Utility Deposit Assistance Program (UDAP), certain classes, and some health center visits. Long distance telephone calls made from a residence hall telephone are applied as a monthly fee to student accounts. A fee may also be assessed to reissue a lost refund or allotment check.
Fines are assessed by numerous areas on campus which include Judicial Affairs, the Library, the Parking Office, Athletics, and Residence Life. Fines from the Parking Office are held for 30 days and if unpaid, are transferred to UBO on the 31st day and are posted to the student account. All fines create an immediate hold on the student account and must be paid in full to have the hold released. Fines can be paid by mailing a check; making a payment by check, FLEX or cash at the cashier counter in Warren Hall during business hours; or at our payment page with a credit card (MasterCard, American Express, or Discover) or electronic check payment.
Deposits are required for university admission and off-campus programs, i.e. all study abroad programs and Semester in Washington, and are credited toward the cost of the program. Deposit amounts and due dates will vary depending on the program.
Please contact the office responsible for the fee, fine or deposit for additional information.
We are committed to quality customer service in order to prepare students to be financially responsible, to provide support and payment options for their families, and to protect the assets of the university with accurate and timely financial procedures.
