Payment plans and advance of funding
PLEASE NOTE: you will NOT be dropped for non-payment if you enroll in a payment plan.
Fall 2017 Payment Plans are Available
Please note that the enrollment fees have increased, and there is no discount for early enrollment. If you are enrolled in a summer payment plan or have a prior term balance, you will need to pay those balances in full before entering into a Fall payment plan.
*Monthly campus rent cannot be included into a payment plan. Contact the Office of the Bursar to set up an estimated plan.

ALL payments are due on the 1st of the month. Payment plans will automatically adjust if classes are added/dropped or if additional charges are added to your student account. Email notifications will remind students of upcoming payments or if the payment amount has increased. A late fee of $50.00 will be assessed for each monthly installment payment that is paid past the due date.
Payment Plans will also be available through the Office of the Bursar for an enrollment fee of $90.00. Students will have access to their plan and to make payments by logging onto their UAOnline account. All communication regarding plans will be sent to the student's preferred or default email address. You can change/update your address on you UAOnline account.
IMPORTANT: All prior term balances must be paid in full before you can enroll in a Fall 2017 payment plan.
At this time UAOnline plans are only available for UAF degree seeking students and non-degree seeking students (UAA and UAS students, please contact your campus).
Personal payments (including UA College Savings Plan) will apply to the next payment due. Financial Aid that does not pay your student balance in full will apply to all payments evenly.

Fall 2017 Advance of Funding
The Advance of Funding (PDF) for the fall semester is now available. You may be eligible for an advance on your financial aid for the purchase of textbooks and supplies if you have 100% guaranteed funding that is sufficient to cover both your entire balance AND your funding request. Once approved a $10 fee will be applied to your student account.
The Office of the Bursar will need to verify that you have enough certified financial aid available to cover all your tuition and fees as well as the Advance of Funding. If we cannot verify funds, written verification of funding will be required.
The money from the Advance of Funding will be applied to your PolarExpress Card as Bear Bucks. You will be able to purchase books and necessary supplies at any UAF Bookstore. YOU DO NOT NEED A POLAREXPRESS CARD TO PURCHASE BOOKS ONLINE. At checkout, simply enter your student ID number and the amount will be deducted from your Bear Bucks.
All communication regarding your Advance of Funding loan will be sent to your @alaska.edu email address or preferred email in UAOnline. If you have questions, contact the UAF Office of the Bursar at 907-474-7384, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us in person in 1st Floor Signers' Hall.
