Tuition payment due dates

Review deadlines and make your payment on time to avoid late fees.

Select the academic term below, and we'll provide the due dates.

Returned checks/ACH payments

If your check or ACH (electronic transfer) payment is returned for the following reasons: Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF), Account Closed, Altered/Fictitious or Stop Payment, a $25 returned-check penalty would be assessed to your account, and the outstanding balance would be due immediately.

A hold would be placed on your account after the third returned payment to prevent any more payments from being made by check.

Avoid late fees or holds that prevent future registration and transcripts

If you don't plan to attend, you should drop your classes right away to avoid financial responsibility. Learn how to drop classes.

  • A late fee of $50 will be charged for late installment payments, if you're on the Installment Payment Plan.

How can my parent or other authorized user view my eBill?

Students sign into their eBill account through My Akron and set up their authorized user. A login name and password, assigned by the student, is used as security to view the eBill. The authorized user can also have an e-mail address added to their profile so that an email notification will be sent when a new eBill is generated. It is the student's responsibility to give the authorized user their login name and password (please keep in mind that the system is sensitive to the case (upper or lower) of each letter of the login name and password). The student also has the ability to cancel access at any time by signing into their eBill account and deactivating the authorized user's login.

Learn more about authorized users.

What happens if my payment is made after the due date?

You will be prevented from future enrollment and denied transcript requests until payment is made in full. You may also be charged a late fee.

The University of Akron is required by law to forward seriously delinquent accounts to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office for collection which would mean additional collection costs. To discuss payment arrangements on an account forwarded to the Ohio Attorney General Office, please contact them directly at 888-665-5440.
