Direct Deduction for Graduate Students

Direct Deduction for Student Account Payment

Direct Deduction for Graduate Students

Graduate students who receive fellowship funding through the payroll system may choose to have autumn, winter and spring USHIP and Student Life fees deducted directly from their payments.  These payments will be applied directly to your University of Chicago Student Account. Tuition payment may not be remitted via direct deduction.

A one-time direct deduction processing fee of $30 ($10.00 per quarter) will be charged to your Student Account when you enroll in the plan.

The Direct Deduction Plan is valid for only one academic year. Those who wish to continue their direct deductions must re-enroll each year. 

Graduate students who enroll in Direct Deduction will NOT receive monthly tuition EBILL statements from the Bursar.
