Other Graduate Information:

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.
  • Students who do not pay 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 $200 if they have not paid their account balance 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 paid 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 paying their financial obligations using a payment plan administered by Nelnet Payment Plan.
  • Students planning to use financial aid to pay 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 pay their account by a specified due date.

Students in Full-time Programs Fall/Spring Billing

Students in full-time graduate programs will receive electronic semester invoices every fall and spring semester. Students will be billed based upon course units.

The semester invoice will include fees, tuition remission and other fellowship awards for students in full-time programs.

Students in Part-time Programs Billing

Part-time students receive an email to their Clark email account with instructions to view their student account and pay their account by a due date specified in the email.  Charges for Spring 2020 will be assessed on November 18, 2019 if registered for classes and thereafter upon registration.  The Part-time student billing due date for Spring 2020 will be January 3, 2020.   Part-time students who register after January 3, 2020 will be expected to pay their account balance 48 hours after registering.

CUWEB or Cashnet 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) additional charges will be assessed.  The student is responsible for viewing their account in CU Web – or Cashnet and paying any account balance.
