Tuition Payment Information

Payment Information

Students can make payments online 7 days a week via their MyUTH student account. MyUTH is down for maintenance each Saturday from 7:00 PM - 8:00 AM Sunday and on University Holidays. If you experience any issues or have any questions, email our office at with your Student ID. We’ll respond during normal business hours, Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Student payments are also accepted in person with personal checks, money orders, and cashier’s checks only. All credit and debit card payments must be made online through the student’s My UTH account.

How to Make Payments

Payments can be made by:

  • MyUTH - using Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express or E-Check. There is a 2.5% Usage Fee for using a credit card to pay tuition. No fees are assessed when using E-check to pay for tuition.
  • In-Person - located at UTHealth Houston Bursar's Office, University Center Tower, 7000 Fannin, Suite 2240, Houston, TX 77030. Payments can be accepted by Cash, Check or Money Order at the window Monday - Friday, between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM. The Bursar’s Office can NOT take payments via Credit Card over the telephone or at the office for tuition. 
  • By Mail - Mail checks, money orders or cashier's checks made payable to UTHealth Houston to UTHealth Houston Bursar’s Office, 7000 Fannin St., Suite 2240, Houston, TX 77030. Make sure checks reference the student name and ID Number. Checks must reach our office by the due date, We Do Not Honor Postmarks.

When to Make Payments

Payment due dates and amounts are listed on the student fee bill. The fee bill is available via MyUTH or by contacting the Bursar’s Office. Payment due dates are also listed on the Registrar’s website. Students will need to pay tuition in full by the payment due date or set up an Installment Plan.

Late Fees

UTHealth does not mail tuition statements. Student account statements are available online via MyUTH. Payments that have not been received by the due date will be assessed a $50.00 late fee. Students utilizing the installment plan will be assessed a $50.00 late fee for each delinquent installment plan payment.

Returned Check Fees

Students who pay tuition and fees with a check/e-check that is returned to UTHealth for no valid account number or insufficient funds will be assessed a $25.00 service charge for each returned item. Returned checks/e-checks will be considered nonpayment of tuition and fees. Nonpayment of tuition and fees by the due date will result in a late payment fee being assessed in addition to the return check service charge fee.

Installment Plan

Students that wish to place their accounts on the Installment Plan must sign the Installment Plan Terms and Conditions electronically on My UTH. There is a nonrefundable $20.00 Installment Plan fee for placing the account on the Installment Plan.  

The 3-part installment plan (1st payment of 50% plus non-installable fees followed by 2 payments of 25%) is available for students enrolled in the Fall and Spring term.   The installment option for the summer semester is only available to students who are registered for the summer 12-week term.   Professional Medical and Dental students enrolled in a year long term may choose from a 2-part plan (2 payments of 50%) or a 4-part plan (4 payments of 25%). 

Students must have a Social Security Number or a Tax ID on File in My UTH to be extended credit in an installment plan.

Dropping classes or withdrawing from the University does not relieve a student of the responsibility for unpaid financial obligations to the University. Students enrolled in an installment payment plan will be required to continue making payments until the non-refundable portion of their account is paid in full. Refunds or credits are based on the percentage of tuition and fees charged, not on the percentage of tuition and fees paid. A student, who fails to make full payment of tuition and fees, including any incidental fees, by the due date, may be prohibited from registering for classes until full payment is made. A student who fails to make payment prior to the end of the semester may be denied credit for the work done that semester.

Please be aware that installment plan amounts are based on the original tuition and fees balance prior to any student payments, financial aid, sponsorships, or scholarships added to the student’s account. Students should also be aware that installment plan totals do not include any non-installable fees for the term, which are due with the 1st installment once enrolled.

Installment Plan Due Dates

Installment payment due dates and amounts are listed on My UTH.  Go to the Financial Accounts tile and click on the charges due link.

Installment Payment Deadline

Payment must be received by the 12th day of the term (Fall/Spring) and 4th day of the term (Summer). Students who have not paid 50% of tuition and fees will be dropped for nonpayment. There is a $200 reinstatement fee if you are dropped for nonpayment and appeal to be reinstated. Students will not be reinstated after the 20th day of the term (Fall/Spring) and 15th day of the term (Summer).
