Student Accounts

General Information

The Student Accounts area provides expertise on electronic bills created by the university. Our staff is happy to assist with billing inquiries, collecting payments, updating address information, and custom payment plans.

All tuition, mandatory fees, contracted campus room and meal plan expenses, and other university related charges are electronically billed directly to the student.

An electronic university bill (U-Bill) is generated on the first business day of every month and due on the 20th (If the due date falls on a weekend, the due date is the first business day following). An email notification is sent to each student's UNI email address when the bill is available. Paper bills are not mailed. Students can view their bill, pay their bill, or enroll in a payment plan online at via MyUNIverse on the Student Center tab.

U-Bill payments can be made by cash, check, money order, cashier's check, or online by e-check or credit card (additional 2.75% service fee applies). Payments must be received by the due date to avoid a late charge of up to 1% and other restrictions.

Payments may be made at one of the following locations:

  • Online by e-check or credit card at MyUNIverse - Student Center
  • Drop-box located outside of the East Entrance of Gilchrist
  • Cashier's Window 103 Gilchrist Hall 8:00-4:30, Monday-Friday
