Payment of Accounts

Account balances are available on MyCampus ( 24/7. Paper statements are not mailed.

Tuition, fees, and room and board charges for each academic period are due by the due date set forth for each semester. Students receiving any type of financial aid (scholarships, grants, loans, campus employment, etc.) must have completion of all such financial assistance from the Financial Aid Office by the due date each semester or at the time of registration if the due date has passed. Registration is not complete until the Registration and Financial Confirmation online form is completed and all financial arrangements are made with the Bursar’s Office.

Payment may be made on the MyCampus site with a credit card -  Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover (credit card convenience fees of 2.5% will apply) or E-Check.  Payments are also accepted in the Bursar’s Office. No payments are accepted over the telephone.

Students should have available funds for the purchase of books and other supplies as these expenses are not charged on the registration bill. Credit cards may be presented for payment in the Campus Store.

Exclusive arrangements have been made with Tuition Management Systems for families who would like to make monthly payments. The monthly budget program is not a loan and carries no interest. A participation fee of $55 enables the payer to make nine (9) equal payments to cover projected annual school costs. The first payment is due July 5, but the program may be entered into later by including all previously due payments with the application fee. For those students who will be attending only one semester, a four (4) payment plan is available for $40. Life insurance which covers the unpaid contract amount is included at no additional cost.

The amount to be financed is determined by subtracting all financial aid (including campus work, if applied to account balance, and PLUS loans) from the total of tuition, fees, and room and board. Books and personal expenses may not be budgeted and must be paid for at the time they are incurred. Students may call Tuition Management Systems toll free at 1-800-722-4867 or contact via the web at to assist them in calculating their monthly payment requirement. If a student is dropped from the monthly budget plan due to nonpayment, the balance owed on the student’s account will become due immediately.

UMHB will not release transcripts until all accounts have been settled. The University also reserves the right to withhold a student’s access to campus services, including MyCampus and UMHB email, and to restrict a student’s participation in university events, including commencement, for failure to make complete payment of a student account. UMHB may additionally withdraw a student for failure by the student to demonstrate proper responsibility in the handling of financial matters as related to the University.

Additional charges made to correct errors or omissions are payable upon receipt.

For any check not honored by a bank, a returned check fee of $25 will be charged and check writing privileges on campus may be revoked.


UMHB utilizes the UMHB Sadermail account as the official means of communicating account notices to students. It is the student's responsibility to periodically check their Sadermail accounts.
