Billing & Payments
How will I receive a statement for my tuition & fees?
Each term the University of Michigan-Flint will send monthly emails to your student campus email address that a new billing statement has been issued and is available for viewing in the Student Account Center. Since no paper statements are sent out, this email serves as the official billing notice. Failure to receive or view the billing statement does not relieve any student of responsibility for payment by the due date. A late fee of 1.5% will be assessed each month on any unpaid balance. See View Your Statement for more information.
Can I, as a student, authorize someone else to view and pay my statement?
Yes, you can set up an authorized person to view the statement and make payments on your behalf. See Setting Up An Authorized User for more information.
UM-Flint will accept payments on student charges in the form of cash, checks, money orders, cashiers checks, E-Check, and credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard & Discover).
- E-Check (Electronic Check)
Payments can be made by entering your checking or savings account and routing numbers through the Student Account Center.
- Credit Card
Payments can be made using a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover) online through the Student Account Center. There is a non-refundable convenience fee that is charged by the third-party processor. This will be calculated at 2.85% (which is subject to change by the third-party processor) of the amount charged to the credit card. Please see FAQs for more information regarding the convenience fee charge.

As you begin registering for courses and prepare for the start of the semester, now is the time to start planning your budget. To help with the process, we offer flexible no-interest payment plans for the Fall, Winter and Spring semesters that allow you to spread the cost of tuition over the semester.
Signing up for the payment plan option allows you to:
- Spread out the cost of attending UM-Flint over the entire semester, rather than paying your tuition all at once up front.
- Pay no interest on the payments you make toward tuition, as long as you make your payments by the stated due dates.
- Have more time to plan and budget before the semester starts.
- Give our Office of Financial Aid staff more time to help you finance your education.
- Make sure you are able to pay for and complete the semester so that you don’t lose the credits you earn.
- Make sure you don’t end up with student loan debt for a semester you don’t complete.
- Keep your financial aid eligibility by paying your tuition and completing the semester.
See Enrolling In A Payment Plan for more information.

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:
Students with MET Contracts must contact MET and request them to authorize UM-Flint to bill.
Late Payment Fees/Financial Holds
A late payment fee will be assessed and a financial hold will be established if payment is received after the due date or if the payment received is less than the amount due.
- A late fee of 1.5% will be assessed each month on any unpaid balance. The Cashiers/Student Accounts Office and/or other University offices will not waive late fees. Late fees will not be waived for students anticipating financial aid payments. The balance due is the student’s responsibility.
- If financial obligations to the University have not been met by the specified dates, the account will be considered “late”, a “hold” will be placed on transcripts, and the student will not be eligible for registration until the obligation has been satisfied.
