Billing Information and Payment Options

University of Northwestern utilizes an electronic billing system, so there are no paper statements mailed. Bills are produced once per month, and an automated e-mail notification is sent to the student’s University of Northwestern e-mail account with a link to the billing statement.

Payment Option Plans

Full Payment of Tuition and Textbook Charges

Students pay the total balance of the University of Northwestern Student Account Statement the last day of the month in which they receive the first bill for the semester. A 1% late payment fee will apply for any remaining balance not paid by the end of the month.

Monthly Payment

Monthly payment plans are available by the semester. There is a fee to enroll in the plan which allows the students to make up to four payments on the account. There are no interest charges or late fees assessed to the account as long as payments are made on time.

Payment Due Date

Payments are due the last day of each month and a $25 late fee will apply if the payment is not received on time. Students may enroll in the monthly payment plan by logging onto the student portal, theROCK >  Finances tab > Student Account > “View Account/Make Payment..” Enrollment for fall begins August 1 with the first payment due August 31, and for spring semester the enrollment begins January 6 with the first payment due January 31.

Employer Tuition Assistance

If your employer requires direct billing by University of Northwestern, call Student Accounts at 651-631-5177 or 888-362-8715.
