Payment


The Office of the Bursar bills students for tuition, room and board, and various other University charges.  Student with a balance receive an email to their UNC Charlotte email address informing them that their bill is available 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 multiple installment payments. 

Returned Check Policy

If a check is returned by the bank, students are notified via their UNC Charlotte email account, indicating that a penalty of $25 has been assessed to their student account.  A hold is placed on the student’s record until the returned 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.uncc.edu and then clicking the “View or Add Authorized Payer” button located in the My Student Account block. 

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 Payment/Billing Suite at https://ecom.uncc.edu/C21561_tsa/web/login.jsp.
