Information for Students
Fall 2013 Financial Aid Information
Most financial aid will be disbursed to a student’s UAF account on Monday, August 26th. This aid will then be applied to any outstanding debt and any credit balances will be refunded. Once the outstanding debt has been paid, the Office of the Bursar will process direct deposit refunds as soon as possible.
As with other financial processes, individuals who sign up for direct deposit will have their refund processed first followed by those who have opted to receive a paper check. Once processed by the Office of the Bursar, direct deposit can take up to five (5) days to reach a student’s bank account while printed checks can take up to two weeks. To determine if your refund has been processed or if financial aid has been posted to your account, please check UAOnline.
Please keep in mind that if you make any changes to your account once the refund has been processed, you will need to pay any remaining balance by the fee payment deadline in order to avoid late fees.
Please sign up for direct deposit on UAOnline if you would like to receive your refund as soon as possible.
More information about refunds can be found here.
CONSEQUENCES OF NOT PAYING TUITION AND FEES
Failure to pay your tuition and fees in full or make other payment arrangements by the final fee payment deadline may result in cancellation of your class schedule. The University of Alaska Fairbanks may withhold transcripts, grades and other services, and cancel meal plans and housing if you do not pay your financial obligations. If the university takes such action, you will still be responsible for your full debt. Registration may be withheld from any student who is delinquent in paying any amount due to the university. The registration process is not complete until the student has paid all fees and charges due to the university. The university may drop you from your courses after the fee payment deadline if you owe a debt to the university. A $100 reinstatement fee will be charged to re-enroll in any dropped courses.
All tuition and fees must be paid by the fee payment deadline published in the current semester class schedule. This includes room rent, meal plan costs, student activity fees, health fees and deposits. Any charges unpaid at the end of the previous semester are also due and must be paid before you can re-enroll. If you owe money to the university and submit an enrollment form and payment for the current semester, you will not be enrolled into your classes; the payment will be applied toward your debt. If the current semester payment is by check from a source other than the student, the payment will be returned to the source.
Please refer to the Registration Guide for semester deadlines.
