Payment


The Office of Student Accounts bills students for tuition, room and board, and various other University charges.  Each student receives an email around the 15th of each month at their UNC Charlotte email address informing them that their bill is available on My UNC Charlotte, online at my.uncc.edu.  It is the student’s responsibility to regularly check their UNC Charlotte email account.  Failure to receive a billing statement or view their account online will not exempt students from having their registration cancelled for non-payment or from having a hold placed on their account blocking them from receiving their transcript and diploma.

Payment can be made by cash, check, online from a checking or savings account (eCheck), or by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover).  All payments must be in U.S. currency.  Remittance should be made payable to “UNC Charlotte” and identified with the student name and ID number.

UNC Charlotte offers a payment plan which allows students to spread out their tuition and fees, on-campus housing and dining, and other charges billed to the student’s account into three installment payments. 

Returned Check Policy

If a check is returned by the bank, a letter is sent to the maker indicating that a penalty of $25 has been assessed and the account must be settled within 10 working days or the check will be considered to be a bad check and be processed accordingly. A hold will be placed on the student’s record until the bad check is covered and the penalty is paid.

A student who pays a previous balance with a check in order to have a registration hold flag lifted will have their registration cancelled if the check is returned by the bank for any reason.

Parent Information/Authorized Payers

Authorized Payers are family and friends that have been given the ability to access the Student Account information ONLY.  In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), student financial records may not be shared with a third party without the student’s written consent.  Adding an authorized payer is the student’s written consent that an individual may view their account information and make payments on their behalf.  Please note that authorized payers DO NOT have access to a student’s stored payment methods, academic records, or other personal information.

Students can add Authorized Payers by logging in to My UNC Charlotte at my.uncc.edu.  Students will then need to access their Student Account Information, select Authorized User under the “My Account” tab, and proceed with “Add Authorized User.” 

Authorized Payers will receive an email informing them that they have been granted access to the student’s account information.  The email notification will include access information that will be used when accessing the information from the UNC Charlotte Student Account Suite at https://ecom.uncc.edu/C21561_tsa/web/login.jsp
