Payment Information for Spring  2017

Any student who completes registration agrees to pay the University according to the payment terms outlined below. Any student who fails to pay their account balance in full by prescribed deadlines may be subject to late fees and/or financial holds.

Payment Obligations

The University requires payment of all registration related fees and charges by Monday, January 23, 2017.

Students participating in payment plans are required to pay their term balance (all registration fees and charges) in full with their last installment. The last installment is due on Monday, April 24, 2017.

Students who pre-register for a semester will be invoiced approximately the second week of July for the fall semester and the second week of December for the spring semester. The Treasurer's Office will send out an email notification when the student invoices are available on UAConnect. You will log into UAConnect, navigate to the Finances section in your Student Center, and click the Student Invoice link located under the My Account section. The late fee will not be waived because an invoice was not received.

Payment Vehicles

The Treasurer's Office accepts cash, checks, e-checks, certified funds, American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa, or Financial Aid. Students who pay with checks drawn on foreign banks are responsible for any collection fees assessed to the University. The University of Arkansas does not accept post-dated checks, IOU's or third party checks.

Students and parents wishing to use a credit or debit card to pay their university bill will have the option of using three types of cards: American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa. Payments made with one of these branded cards will bear a 1.8 percent convenience fee. The fee helps the university cover the costs associated with providing a secure web-based transaction environment. It is charged only to students and parents who choose to make UAConnect payments by credit or debit card. To avoid the convenience fee, you may pay by check or cash or go through the eCommerce Payment System and select the electronic check payment option.

If you have any questions concerning payment by credit or debit card, please contact the Student Accounts Office at 479-575-5651.

International Payments

The University of Arkansas has partnered with Flywire to streamline the tuition payment process for our international students. With Flywiire, you can pay from any country and any bank. You are offered excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money, as compared to traditional banks. You will also be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process via a student dashboard and an email confirmation will be sent to you when your payment is received by the school. Go to uark.flywire.com to begin the payment process.

Payments may be mailed to:

  • University of Arkansas
    Treasurer's Office
    PO Box 1404

Be sure to include a student ID number on the payment.

The University Cashiers Office is located in the Arkansas Union, Room 214.

A drop box is located on the second floor of the Arkansas Union across from the west elevator outside the Treasurer's Office for payments brought after hours. Please do not deposit cash in the drop box.

Late Fees

Late fees are assessed twice during the term. A $50.00 late fee may be assessed to any student who is not participating in a payment plan and has an outstanding balance for registration related fees and charges after September 30, 2016. Another $50.00 late fee may be assessed to any student who has an outstanding balance after November 30, 2016.

Financial Holds

An outstanding balance will prevent a student from pre-registering for any semester. A student must have a zero balance or be current on an approved installment plan for the current term to participate in priority registrations. The University reserves the right to withhold transcripts or diplomas from any student who fails to pay their student account balance in full by prescribed deadlines. For detailed information, please visit Fayetteville Policy 505.0 .

Returned Payments

Students whose payments are returned to the University as unpaid (for any reason) will be assessed a $30.00 returned payment fee, plus any additional bank charges for each item returned. Complete information on the University's returned payment policy is available at Fayetteville Policy 327.0 .

Failure to Pay

If an account balance remains outstanding for 120 days after the end of the billing term with NO payment activity, the account is forwarded to collections.

  • No services are provided to the student while the balance remains outstanding, including receipt of transcripts, diplomas, or further registration privileges at the University of Arkansas.
  • An outstanding balance with the University of Arkansas NEVER expires! To receive services at any time in the future, all outstanding charges MUST be paid in full.

Acceptance of payment for tuition and fees does not imply academic acceptance to the University of Arkansas.
