Winter Session Fees, Payment, & Refunds
During the Winter Session all students pay resident fees. This can result in major savings for visiting and out-of-state students who normally pay higher out-of-state tuition. Basic charges for Winter Session are broken down on the bursar's website. In addition, some courses require Special Course Fees or Course Related Expenses to cover additional materials.
Payment of fees is the final step in the registration process. Payment in full - including fees for registration, student services, special course materials, encumbrances, late charges, and charges from a previous semester - is required to complete registration. Partial payment could result in a possible late charge. Any payment or partial payment received after the due dates will be credited to your account to use for future registration or miscellaneous charges.
It is important that students be sure that their courses are canceled through UAccess even if fees are not paid. Failure to cancel your course(s) could result in a grade of 'E' and the need for a student to submit to the grade appeal process, as well as nonrefundable charges.
Although we make every effort to print only the most updated information, the University of Arizona reserves the right to change any and all fees without notice. Application fees shown below are not refundable.
- In State: $50
- Out Of State: $75

Payment Policies and Information
Deadline to pay tuition for ALL UNITS registered for Winter Sessions is the first day of the session, December 18th.
Account Summaries Students may obtain their account balance on UAccess. In compliance with the University policy on email, correspondence from the Bursar's Office will be sent to the student's official University "@email.arizona.edu" email account. Students are expected to check their email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to stay current with University-related communications.
Financial Aid Recipients Check your Financial Aid Status in UAccess to ensure your awards are ready to disburse or for any outstanding requirements. If you have questions about your financial aid award, contact the Office of Student Financial Aid. If you have enough financial aid to cover all your tuition charges, you should see a "financial aid fee deferment" message on your Account Balance screen in UAccess. This will prevent a late payment charge. If you don't see a fee deferment and think you should have one, please contact the Office of Student Financial Aid. If financial aid does not cover all tuition charges, payment for the difference must be received by the due date to avoid late payment charges. IMPORTANT: Financial aid funds will not arrive in time to cover Presession courses. Go to the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid for important information.
Financial Ineligibility [past-due accounts] Students with past-due debts are considered financially ineligible. University services will be withheld, including, but not limited to: registration, grades, transcripts and diplomas. Until the debt is paid in full, you will also be assessed a monthly Past Due Balance Charge of $2 or 1.5% of the past due balance, whichever is greater. The hold will be lifted after the student's account is at a zero balance.
Dishonored Checks Any unpaid returned check will be assessed a $25 Service Charge and applicable late charges. Upon assignment to a collection agency, account holders will be responsible for collection charges and any attorney fees. Per ARS 12-671, account holders may be assessed twice the amount of the check or $50.00, whichever is greater, in addition to the $25.00 Service Charge. Payment for a dishonored check must be made by Money Order, Cashier's Check or Cash. Cash payments can be made in the Bursar's Office during regular office hours.
Collections Unpaid balances may be sent to a collection agency and reported to the credit bureau. Students are responsible for all collection costs and legal fees. Please refer to the Bursar's Office website for additional information.
You are entitled to a refund of all fees if you officially drop course(s) by the specified deadline. Students on waivers and scholarships should be aware that the same deadlines apply.
You are not entitled to a refund if:
- You do not cancel your classes and still remain on the class roster.
- You drop a class after the published refund deadlines.
- You made an error in registering via UAccess. Recheck your schedule.
University policy prohibits refunds on courses that have been issued a grade.
If you feel you are entitled to a refund despite the established refund deadlines and policies, you must submit a Refund Request Form (PDF file) to the Office of Summer/Winter Session. No email, verbal, or telephone appeals will be accepted. Note: submitting a request does not automatically guarantee a refund. Requests are reviewed on an individual basis and are approved at the discretion of the Office of Summer/Winter Session. Refund requests for extenuating circumstances (family or medical emergencies) may be considered with attached supporting documentation. Students requesting a refund must drop/withdrawal from their course FIRST before submitting their request. All questions regarding the refund process should be directed to the Office of Summer/Winter Session in the Administration Bldg., Room 221G, 1401 E. University Blvd. Phone: (520) 626.8200.
Students are responsible for being aware of and adhering to these deadlines.
