Billing & Payment Procedures
A monthly email will be sent to your student campus email address with links to your account if you have a balance due. Paper bills are no longer sent out, so this email serves as your official billing notice. Failure to receive an official university tuition and fee bill/e-notification does not relieve any student of responsibility for payment by the due dates.
E-Notification will include the tuition due date, a link to SIS where you can access detailed account information and make credit card payments. It will be your responsibility to access your UM-Flint student email account for E-Notification regarding your balance due and payment due date. Any unpaid balance will receive a 1.5% interest charge each month. Students can forward the email to their parents or print a copy.
The University of Michigan - Flint will accept payments in person of cash, personal checks, money orders and cashiers checks. Online payment options include E-Check (ACH payments by checking or savings accounts) with no additional cost to you and by credit cards (American Express, MasterCard & Discover) via SIS or Student Account Center. Effective July 10, 2009, a 2.75% non-refundable convenience fee will apply. Please visit FAQs for more important regarding the convenience fee charge.
In person payments of checks and money orders must include the student's UMID number to ensure prompt and correct credit to their student account. Tuition payments by check or money order may be made as follows:

Third Party Billing
If an outside agency is paying for your tuition you need to provide the Cashiers/Student Accounts Office with a Voucher or Letter of Authorization to Bill. Vouchers must list the exact classes the student is registered for and vouchers must be submitted in a timely manner to avoid penalties (preferably the first 3 weeks). Vouchers that are turned in after the semester has ended will not have penalties removed.
If you are receiving other forms of Financial Aid it is important that you include the voucher information to the office of Financial Aid so that it is calculated in your Financial Aid package.
You will not see your Voucher or Letter of Authorization to Bill post to your account until after the Add / Drop period has ended.
Many vouchers can be printed from their websites. Some common websites include:
- General Motors
To access the General Motors website you will start with the employee’s last name and social security number.
- Michigan Education Trust (MET)
Students with MET Contracts must contact MET and request them to authorize UM-Flint to bill.
