Graduate Student Billing

Every graduate student should view their student account in CU Web (link).

Students in Full-time Programs Fall/Spring Billing

Students in full-time graduate programs will receive electronic bills (e-bills) every fall and spring semester, Students will be billed based upon course units.

  • Students not yet registered or registered for less than 3 course units

The e -bill will include fees, tuition remission and other fellowship awards based on a minimum expected 3 units of registration for students in full-time programs. If a student later registers for more than 3 units, additional charges will be assessed.  The student is responsible for viewing their account in CU Web – or Cashnet (link) and settling any account balance. 

  • Students registered for 3 or more course units

If a student registers for 3 or more units prior to e-bills being sent, the bill will reflect tuition charges for current registered course units, fees, tuition remission and other fellowship awards.  If a student later adds additional course unit(s) above 3, additional charges will be assessed.  The student is responsible for viewing their account in CU Web – or Cashnet (link) and settling any account balance.

  • Full-time students enrolled in less than 3 units in their final semester see final bullet in General Billing information.

Students in Part-time Programs Billing

General Billing Information for ALL Graduate Students

  • It is important for a student who plans to finish their degree at the end of any given semester to complete the Application for Degree in CUWeb by a pre-determined date established by the Registrar’s office.  The Registrar’s Office will email students the application and instructions to their Clark email. If a student does not complete the Application for a Degree and is registered for less than 3.0 units, charges will not be adjusted until the Application for a Degree is completed and Student Accounts has been notified.
  • Students who do not settle their accounts by the pre-determined due date each semester will receive an email notifying them a hold will be placed on their record.  This hold will prevent students from making adjustments (e.g., adding, dropping) to their registration; viewing their online transcript; and requesting an official transcript.  Students will also be at risk of financial withdrawal and/or having their registration cancelled.
  • Students will be assessed a late payment fee of $100 if they have not settled their account by the due date.
  • During add/drop, students will be able to make changes to their registration without financial penalty, as long as their account has been settled and there are no current holds on their records.
  • Any course withdrawals made after the end of the add/drop period will be subject to the Graduate refund policy.  Other changes made to the student’s schedule (e.g., late adds, changing unit value) after the add/drop period may result in additional charges and a late registration fee of $100.
  • The University offers graduate students the option of settling their financial obligations using a payment plan administered by Tuition Management Systems (TMS)  
  • Students planning to use financial aid to satisfy their financial obligation should submit necessary paperwork to the Financial Aid Office by the pre-determined date established by Financial Aid Office each semester.
  • Any graduate student (full-time or part-time) registering for a summer semester or term will receive an email with instructions to view charges in Cashnet and settle their account by a specified due date.

Late Fees/Interest

A late fee up to $200, as well as 1% interest per month, will be assessed to all accounts not paid by the bill due date.
