Tuition and Fees

Tuition, Fees, Refunds, and Deposits Deadlines

Tuition and fees for the fall and spring semesters are payable in full on Sept. 23 (fall semester) and Feb. 23 (spring semester). Please see the schedule below for approximate billing dates and due dates. Each time a student fails to meet a payment due date, a Late Payment Fee will be assessed to the tuition account. Note: Failure to receive the billing notice will not excuse the student from payment responsibility, nor the late payment penalties. Students may review their tuition and fees account using MavLINK or on Cashiering and Student Accounts website.

UNO accepts major credit cards for payment of tuition and fees. Credit card payments may be made via MavLINK.  Payments by check, cashier’s check, or money order may also be mailed to the Cashiering and Student Accounts Office, 109 Eppley Administration Building, 6001 Dodge Street, Omaha, NE 68182. When mailing, please use the remittance form on the tuition and fees statement.  Payments of cash, check, money order, or cashier's check may also be brought to the Cashiering and Student Accounts Office during regular business hours or deposited in the after-hours drop box located outside of the office.

Summer Sessions

Students will be billed at the end of each month through July for their summer registrations. Tuition and fees will be due and payable in full by the 23rd of each month.

Students who fail to pay tuition and fees by the due date will be assessed a Late Payment Fee.

Failure to make payment on an account will prohibit registration for future semesters. If an account remains unpaid, it may be forwarded to a collection agency.

Students waiting until after the initial due date for payment of tuition and fees to register or add courses will be required to pay the late registration fee and the late payment fees retroactively.

Failure to pay tuition or fees when due, or to meet payments on loans when due, may result in cancellation of registration, legal action, collection efforts and withholding of transcripts. Outstanding financial obligations from previous semesters must be paid prior to registration. Failure to do so will prohibit registration for future semesters.

The university reserves the right to change the amount of tuition or fees at any time and to assess charges for laboratory/special instructional fees, breakage, lost property, fines, penalties, parking, books, supplies, food or special services not listed in this schedule.

In addition, students registering for audit must pay all student fees. Registration for audit requires the permission of the instructor and is subject to available class space after credit registration ends. Students who register to take a course for credit and who later change to audit registration will be required to pay the full resident or non-resident tuition rate. Audit fees are refundable in accordance with the Tuition Refund Schedule.

Refund Schedule

Students who drop one or more courses or who completely withdraw will be obligated to the university for that portion of tuition cost based on the refund schedule. Students who completely withdraw are obligated to pay the non-refundable portion of tuition and fees for the course(s) from which they are withdrawing. Refunds are computed from the date application is received by the Registrar, not from the date of withdrawal of classes.

See Withdrawal from Classes policy. Only tuition, technology and library per credit fees are refunded. The UPF flat fee is non-refundable. No other fees are refundable after the first week of classes. Trip fees may not be refundable after a certain point. Please check with the department sponsoring the trip for refundability timelines, otherwise for all other fees, please refer to the fee schedule.

Students are not relieved from the payment of tuition and fees if they withdraw before a tuition due date, or if payment of tuition and fees has been extended by the Office of Financial Support and Scholarships. Students who have received financial aid are subject to special refund rules as established by the U.S. Department of Education. A financial aid recipient should first contact the Office of Financial Support and Scholarships prior to any official withdrawal from the university to ensure he or she fully understands the financial implications of withdrawal.

Failure to make payment will prohibit registration for future semesters and the release of academic transcripts. If an account remains unpaid, it may be forwarded to a collection agency.
