UChicago Quarterly Payment Plan
The Office of the University Bursar offers select academic programs the ability to defer their quarterly student account balance over three installments. All students in the following academic programs are eligible for enrollment, regardless of need or financial standing, are eligible for the Quarterly Payment Plan (QPP).

College Degree Seeking Students

The Autumn 2020 Payment Plan will open on September 14, 2020 for enrollment.

The last day to enroll in the Quarterly Payment Plan for Autumn is October 20, 2020.

(Autumn Payment Plan Due Dates (September 25, October 28, and November 25)

The QPP is 3 months in length and payments are due the last week of each month beginning with the first month of attendance and ending with the last month of attendance. Exact payment dates are presented at the time of enrollment. The plan carries a $30 quarterly enrollment fee. Enrollment will open when the first bill of quarter is issued and will remain open until the end of the first week of the quarter.

The $30 enrollment fee is paid at the time of enrollment or with the first installment, whichever occurs earliest. Automatic electronic monthly deductions from checking or savings* is the preferred method of payment. Payments must be made online if you do not elect to participate in automatic deductions. Late payments may be assessed a late fee. Details are available at the time of enrollment.

Enrollees will continue to receive a monthly EBill reflecting their payments and charges for their records. Payment due dates will mirror those in the EBill.

Payment plan amounts are calculated from the difference between your total direct charges and total expected credits and/or financial aid.

  • Direct Charges are based on your enrollment and individual choices regarding housing, study abroad and/or student health insurance.
  • Expected Credits are determined by the individual resources you have access to beyond your payment plan including any outside scholarships or financial aid expected to be paid on your behalf.

All charges and credits will be displayed on the first billing statement of the quarter and should be used as reference in determining the amount of the Quarterly Payment Plan.

If you are a financial aid recipient and have applied for financial aid for the upcoming year, a financial aid award package is necessary to calculate an accurate budget when enrolling in the QPP.

If you are a financial aid recipient you may choose to wait until your financial aid credits are applied before formally enrolling in the payment plan as full amounts will be calculated until these credits formally transact to your account.

For more information regarding the status of your financial aid award package please contact the appropriate program Financial Aid Office.

Here is a sample 2020-2021 QPP calculation:

Direct Charges Expected Credits Quarterly Plan Amount (Charges-Credits) Monthly Payment
College Tuition $23,000 UChicago Grant $10,000    
Fees/Insurance $1,968 National Merit $333    
Total:  $24,968 Total: $10,333 $14,635 $4,479
Students may enroll themselves or Authorize a Payer to enroll in the payment plan on their behalf. Only one enrollment in the plan is allowed per Student Account

  • Students may enroll in the plan via myUChicago and EBill/EPay.
  • Authorized Payers may enroll in the plan via their own Portal.

In order to determine an accurate calculation of your QPP please ensure you and your student has knowledge of exact financial aid, scholarships, or additional funding contributing toward their direct charges.

Payment plan balances updated with charges and credits on a daily basis.

If your payment plan balance needs to be increased you will receive an email requesting an approval to increase your payment plan amounts.

If you do not accept a requested change to your budget within 10 days of notification, your payment plan enrollment will be withdrawn and all charges will be due immediately.

If your payment plan balance needs to be decreased your next payment will be decreased automatically.

Those who do not successfully complete their payment plan will not be allowed to enroll in a subsequent payment plan and are subject to late fees and Student Account Hold Policies. Additional terms of the payment plan are available for review at the time of enrollment.
