Invoices for the fall semester are sent electronically early in July and are typically due by mid-August. Invoices for the spring semester are sent electronically early in January and are due by mid-to-late January. Specific due dates are printed on the invoice.

Due date

Payment must be received by the due date indicated on your eBill. 

Failure to meet the due date will result in the assessment of a $50 late fee. Students are expected to keep their accounts current and to pay their financial obligations to the University.

Students are required to ensure that their charges are paid in full or covered by other sources such as financial aid awards, external payment plan contracts or other forms of coverage prior to the start of the semester.

Students who do not attend but are registered for courses must officially withdraw from UMass Dartmouth otherwise they will be responsible for all outstanding charges.

Should you fall into certain financial difficulties, please call the University Enrollment Center at 508.999.8857 to inquire about other financial aid or payment plan options. In appropriate circumstances, the Bursar's Office may impose various restrictions in order to enforce payment of an obligation, including withholding of official transcripts and diploma.

How are tuition and fees calculated?

Undergraduate tuition and fees are based on an assumption of full-time status (12 or more credits). If you are taking fewer than 12 credits, the charges can be prorated. Please contact the University Enrollment Center for the correct charges. Graduate and non-degree tuition and fees are based on actual course registration.

Student health insurance

All students should either enroll in or waive the insurance by the due date indicated on the student invoice. All students who have not enrolled in or waived the University health insurance plan by the due date of the bill will have a registration hold placed on their accounts.

If you have successfully completed the online waiver of the insurance, deduct the insurance charge from the total due if that charge appears on your invoice.
