Credits on Your Term Bill

You can make adjustment credits to your term bill based on your financial aid package. Loans, scholarships from outside sources, and tuition remission are allowed. If you subsequently decline or fail to qualify for any portion of the financial aid awarded, you will be required to make an additional payment.

If your charges are partially covered by financial aid or paid in full, you must:


We cannot credit your account until your loan is disbursed to Student Accounting. The certification of your loan and receipt of the loan by the Office of Financial Aid does NOT automatically confirm your attendance.


The foundation that is awarding you the nonuniversity scholarship can send the check or letter of intent by the term bill due date to:

Rutgers University Student Accounting Office
Records Hall, Room 138 CAC
620 George Street
New Brunswick, NJ 08901-1175

  • The scholarship must not be contingent upon your final fall semester grades in order to take credit on your term bill.
  • Our office will acknowledge receipt of the scholarship check and/or follow up with the foundation for any additional information needed.
  • If you are receiving a departmental scholarship through Rutgers, the department will send a letter to our office and your account will be credited for the awarded amount. 

Tuition Remission

Once a student is eligible and appointed, an estimated tuition remission amount will be displayed on your online term bill.

With the estimated amount displayed, you will have the opportunity to proactively address any term bill charges due, that is not covered by the remission benefit, if applicable.

As in prior semesters, departments will only be charged when the student has met the eligibility date associated with their appointment (this only applies to GA/TA/Fellow Remission).

Visit our tuition remission page for more information.
