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 Payment 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 payment fee. Questions regarding this fee should be directed to the University Billing Office, 800-943-4557, or 319-335-0071.
3rd Party Invoicing Fee
Any organization requiring additional documents or information, outside of the monthly U-Bill, to submit payment for a student's account will be billed the invoicing fee. This $100 per semester fee will be included in the balance requested from the organization, but will be the student's responsibility to pay if not covered by the organization.
Employer Deferment Fee
Students who complete the employer deferment process to request to have the payment of their tuition and fees deferred until the end of the semester are charged a $35.00 fee per semester. The deferment applies only to tuition and mandatory fees and does not exempt the account from other service fees.
