Payment Options

In general, payments remitted to the University will be applied to the oldest charges first unless other wise specified, e.g. Graduation Fee, Application Fee, Housing charges, etc.

All payments are due the first day of the semester. Students are responsible to check their online accounts regularly to ensure account is up to date. UNBC does not send out student invoices by mail.

Late payment penalties at the monthly rate of 2% will be assessed on any outstanding balance when the account reaches 30 days past due and every 30 days subsequent until the account is paid in full.
