Autumn 2021 Electronic Bill Availability

Notification of the availability is forwarded to your UChicago email account.  Access to your electronic bill starts with your CNETID and can be accessed through the myUChicago portal. You may also add Authorized Users* to view your Electronic Bill and remit payments. Billing and due dates are available online and we ask that you review this information for each quarter for your program of study.

Please visit our Payment Options information if you have a balance due and Student Account Refunds if you expect a living expense refund disbursement.  We highly encourage you to complete these processes online before arriving on-campus.

Financial Responsibility Agreement

All students are asked to review and confirm they understand the University of Chicago financial policies before the start of their academic career.  Please complete your Financial Responsibility Agreement found in the myUChicago student portal task list prior to the start of the academic year.

University Health Insurance Plan (USHIP)

The University of Chicago requires all students to possess health insurance coverage while in attendance.  Those students who have alternative coverage may Waive the University Health Insurance Program (USHIP). All students who do not waive coverage by October 15, 2021 will automatically be enrolled in the USHIP plan, and subsequently assessed quarterly premiums.  If you would like to waive coverage you may do so beginning August 2, 2021 at  University Student Health Insurance Waiver/Enrollment .  For more information on the University Health Insurance program and other Student Wellness services visit

We hope that this information is helpful and expect all your questions and concerns should be resolved prior to the start of the term and you will be focusing on the start of classes!

Just in case…our office will have extended electronic and phone service during the start of the term to assist with any additional questions or concerns. Visit our Contact US Page for specific information.
