Payment Policies

Charges for tuition, mandatory fees, room, board and any miscellaneous fees are due on or before Final Registration/Payment Days. Cancellation of a student's schedule may occur at the sole discretion of the University if the account is unpaid, if the University's payment plan installments are incomplete, or if financial aid resources cannot be confirmed by the final day of registration. Student tuition payments returned to the University for any reason will constitute non-payment and may result in the cancellation of a student's schedule. Cancellation of a schedule will require the student, no later than the end of the third week of the semester, to satisfy financial obligations and officially enroll in a new course schedule in accordance with add/drop procedures. A student who fails to satisfy financial obligations and officially enroll will not be recognized as a matriculated student.

Please Note

All outstanding obligations to the University must be resolved before students will be permitted to register for future semesters. Outstanding obligations may be to one or more of the following offices: the Bursar, Dean of Students, the Library, Residence Life, Admissions, Financial Aid or Academic Advising. Students prevented from registering due to one or more of these "holds" will be notified.

Financial Aid

For eligible students, the Financial Aid Office will prepare an award package and the awards will be reflected on the Registration Billing Statement. Federal Subsidized and Federal Unsubsidized Student Loans minus origination fees will be reflected on the Registration Billing Statement after the student has completed the loan questionnaire, and the Financial Aid Office has approved the questionnaire. Federal Parent Loans minus origination fees will be reflected on the Registration Billing Statement after the lender has approved the loan. However, to have the awards paid to the student's account balance, all requested financial aid documents and promissory notes must be submitted to and approved by the Financial Aid Office.

The University of Tampa reserves the right to revise a student's financial aid award. Revision may result because of a change in the student's enrollment status, housing status, or because of new information including outside awards. Federal or state awards may change if the expected appropriations are not received. Awards are contingent upon maintenance of satisfactory progress. Should a student's award be revised for any reason resulting in a balance owed to the University, the student must settle their financial obligation with the Bursar's Office. If you have financial aid questions, call (813) 253-6219.

Student Responsibility

The University holds the student responsible for auditing the information recorded on the billing statement and/or their account. If there are omissions, promptly call the office responsible for the entry. The bill and/or account should include tuition and mandatory fees. If you are a residential student, the bill and/or account should include charges for your residence hall and/or meal plan.

The University holds the student responsible for the balance of their account. The student is responsible to insure that his/her scholarships, and/or loans and/or payment from his/her parent, guardian, trustee and/or outside source is applied to the balance of their account.

Should there be any outstanding debts owed to the University, services such as issuance of official transcripts and diplomas or participation in registration will be withheld. Failure to remit payment may result in the cancellation of the student's schedule and removal from University Housing.

Questions regarding the payment of your bill should be directed to the Bursar's Office at (813) 253-6202.
