Disbursement and Tuition Payments

Paying Tuition

  • Tuition charges will appear on your account in UAccess.
  • Visit the Bursar’s Office website for tuition deadlines and other payment information.
  • If ALL tuition is covered by financial aid (combination of federal and other funds), tuition/fees will be deducted first, and any remaining funds then disbursed to you.
  • If you will pay any portion of your tuition by cash, you must pay the cash portion by tuition deadline.  

Disbursement and Tuition Payments

Financial aid is disbursed twice a year, one week prior to the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. Generally, financial aid will credit to the student’s account to pay tuition and fees first. Any remaining funds will be refunded to the student. Refunds are distributed in two ways: (1) a paper check automatically mailed to you after tuition is paid; or (2) direct deposit (ACH). To receive your refund to your bank account, you must sign up for web refund enrollment through UAccess. Refunds typically appear in your back account 1–2 days after the funds have been released.

Textbook Charges

You may charge your books online or in person at the University of Arizona BookStores using your CAT card (up to $1,000). When your financial aid arrives, these charges will be deducted.
