  • UNC Charlotte Payment Plans are based on estimated charges; therefore please visit the following web sites to assist you in determining these estimates:

  • If you schedule your installment payments when you enrolled in your payment plan, please remember that the system will automatically process these transactions on the due date. 

  • If you make a “manual/additional” payment, it will be processed along with the scheduled installment payment. 

  • Please check your monthly eBill for any charges that have not been included in your payment plan and contact us to adjust any remaining installments to include these charges and prevent a registration hold.

  • If you withdraw from the University (drop all your classes) or change your course load, and the amount of your installment payments exceeds your current charges, you will receive a refund.

  • If you need a payment plan adjustment, email

  • A registration hold will be placed on student accounts that are not paid each month on the installment due date.

    • Students whose student account is not paid in full or in good standing on a Tuition Payment Plan may have a financial hold placed against their records, registration and graduation.

  • When using a Debit Card as a form of payment, remember to select “credit” as the payment type.  Checking is used only when making an ACH electronic payment (eCheck).

  • Contact your Financial Institution prior to using certain savings accounts for ACH electronic (eCheck) payments.  Account types, such as Money Market, vacation, or savings accounts may be classified as “NON TRANSACTION” accounts and cannot be used for ACH electronic (eCheck) payments.  Payments returned to the University unpaid by these accounts will be accessed a $25.00 returned service charge.

  • Reminder emails are system generated and before taking any action please review your student account activity to determine if the information in the reminder email is valid.
