After registering for courses, Rutgers issues an online term bill each semester, which includes all tuition and fees. This balance must be paid prior to the term bill due date.
For the fall semester, bills are generated in mid-July after rates are approved by the Board of Governors. For the spring semester, bills are generated in mid-November.
Paying Tuition Completes Your Registration
In order to complete the registration process, all students must do one of the following prior to the term bill due date listed on your online account statement:
- Pay your term bill in full,
- If you have a zero or credit account balance, confirm your attendance online, or
- Enroll in the Rutgers University Tuition Payment Plan (RUTPP).
Students who register after the term bill due date but before the first day of class are given approximately two weeks from the day they register to pay. Continuing students (including graduate students) who register on or after the first day of class are expected to pay their term bills on the day they register.
Responsibility of the Student
All account balances not paid in full when due are the sole responsibility of the student and extend to all costs incurred by the university to collect such debt. This may include, but is not limited to, late fees, collections costs, litigation/attorney's fees, and court costs.
