Check Payment Policy

When you provide a check as payment, you authorize The University of Texas at San Antonio to either:

  • Use the information from your check to make a one-time electronic funds transfer from your account, or;
  • Process the payment as a check transaction.

When information from your check is used to make an electronic funds transfer, funds may be withdrawn from your account as soon as the same day your payment is received, and you will not receive your check back from your financial institution.

For inquiries, please call Fiscal Services at 210-458-8000.

Tuition and Fees Short-Term Loans

Tuition & Fee loans are due 90 days from the date of application or on the last day of the semester, whichever comes first. The loans accrue interest at 5% annually.

Late payments are assessed a $10 late fee and a hold is placed on the student's record. Interest will continue to accrue until the loan is paid in full. Collection activity may ensue if the loan remains unpaid for 90 days and arrangements are not made with the Fiscal Services Office.

Tuition and Fees Short-Term Loans are available through the Financial Aid Office or online through ASAP. For more information, see the UTSA Information Bulletin – Tuition and Fees Short-term Loan web site.

Installment Payment Plan

The Installment Payment Plan is available for the Fall and Spring semesters ONLY. It is a three-payment plan and is available for a one-time fee of $16.00.

This enables students to pay 30% of their tuition and fees (excluding parking, installment fee, property deposit, orientation, health insurance, and testing fees which must be paid in full) in advance at the beginning of the semester, 35% prior to the start of the sixth class week and the final 35% due before the beginning of the eleventh week.

If the second or third payment is not completed by the due date, a $10 late fee is assessed and a registration hold is placed on the student's record.

Students paying one-half or more (but less than payment in full) without choosing the Installment Program may be automatically placed on the Installment Program to avoid withdrawal for insufficient payment.

Online Payment Process

Online payments are automatically applied in the following order:

NOTE: Online payment through BANNER ASAP is highly recommended.

  1. Oldest payment due date
    EXAMPLE: Your account currently contains an unpaid balance for a previous semester as well as a current semester balance. The previous semester balance contains the oldest payment due date and therefore will be paid before the current semester balance is paid.
  2. Priority assigned to each payment item
    EXAMPLE: Tuition and fees have a higher priority than non-mandatory fees, such as housing and parking.

If you would like to make changes to how your payment is applied, then you must submit your request indicating those fees you would like paid via email to Fiscal Services at

If you don't have a preference as to the order that your payment is applied or if you are paying you balance in full, then no further action is necessary, Banner will apply your payment per the default application of payment process.

Third Party Payments

Students receiving tuition assistance (i.e.: Texas Tomorrow Fund, Military, or from their employers) must provide the signed and approved form to the Fiscal Services Office as payment for tuition and fees prior to the payment deadline. UTSA will bill the agency directly for the approved amount of tuition and fees. Any remaining balance not covered by the third party agency is the responsibility of the student.

Releasing Account Information

Consistent with FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act), UTSA does not release personal student information — including account information — to a third party or by telephone, without prior written consent. Emails requesting specific or personal information must be sent from your UTSA email address. Emails originating from any other source can only be answered in general terms.

For more information, including the Student Authorization to Release Education Records Form, see the FERPA Information for Students and Parents web site.

Tuition Set Aside for Financial Assistance Notice

In accordance with provisions of the Texas Education Code, Section 56.014, each semester UTSA will provide an e-mail to every student that has paid designated tuition. The notice will indicate the amount of their tuition that is required to be set aside and used for need-based financial aid to UTSA students. No action is necessary by the recipient as the email is for information purposes only.

The below chart illustrates how the financial aid set-aside is calculated:
  Resident Student Non-Resident Student
Undergraduate 15% of Designated Tuition (G011,G012,G013) that exceeds $46 p/SCH

Education Code Section 56.011
Graduate 15% of Designated Tuition (G021,G022,G023) that exceeds $46 p/SCH

Education Code Section 56.012
Doctoral 15% of Designated Tuition (G021,G022,G023) that exceeds $46 p/SCH

Education Code Section 56.012

For more information, see administrative guideline 3.3 - Financial Aid Set Asides from Tuition Revenue.

Tuition Set Aside FAQ

What is tuition set-aside?

Tuition set-aside is a portion of the designated tuition paid by resident students (those classified as citizens of the State of Texas), "set aside" and dedicated to provide need-based financial aid to students.

Why are these funds being set aside?

The university is required by law to set aside a portion of designated tuition charged to a resident student. See Texas Education Code Sections 56.011 and 56.012.

How much of my tuition is set aside?

Fifteen percent (15%) per credit hour of designated tuition in excess of $46.00 per credit hour for undergraduate and graduate residents are set aside. See Texas Education Code Sections 56.011 and 56.012.

How much is designated tuition?

The designated tuition rate is subject to change.

Am I being charged extra?

No, by state law, the University is required to put a portion of the designated tuition that state residents pay into a fund to support financial aid to students. No additional amount is assessed to compensate for this set-aside.

How is this money used? Will I benefit from it?

Financial assistance provided by funds set aside includes grants, scholarships, work-study programs, student loans, and student loan repayment assistance. To be eligible for assistance, a student must establish financial need in accordance with rules and procedures established by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. In order to be considered for need based aid, the student must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Will this impact my financial aid?

No, tuition set-aside does not affect your aid nor does it guarantee that you will receive financial aid. Aid will be determined on a case by case basis and is based on your FAFSA and aid eligibility as determined by the Office of Student Financial Aid. For questions about the FAFSA or your eligibility for financial aid, please contact One Stop Enrollment Center.

What if I don't want my money to be used this way?

Unfortunately, UTSA does not have the ability to change the requirements of the state law.
