Service Charges

Deferred Payment Fee

Accounts are billed per semester. Each semester the entire balance (noted as 'Balance Due' on the bill), should be paid in order to avoid incurring the Deferred Payment Fee. If the entire balance is not paid, it is assumed that payments will be made in installments, deferring a portion of the balance and incurring the Deferred Payment Fee. If you feel you have been charged a deferred payment fee in error, please fill out a Deferred Fee Appeal Form and return the completed form to the University Billing Office.

Late Payment Fee

When the Minimum Payment Amount on the U-Bill is not received by the end of business on the due date, your account will be considered past due and a $25 late payment fee will be added to your next U-Bill.  If you believe a late payment fee has been assessed in error, please fill out a Late Payment Fee Appeal Form and return the completed form to the University Billing Office.

Returned Check Fee

Any payment not honored and returned to the University of Iowa will be charged back to the account accompanied by a $30.00 returned check handling charge. Questions regarding this fee should be directed to the University Billing Office, 1 (800) 943-4557, or 335-0071.
