I.     POLICY AND GENERAL STATEMENT

A. Tuition and Fees Payment

Students must pay all tuition and fees at the time of registration, or they must register and make the first payment on an installment plan accepted by the Bursar’s Office. Students who have not made payments will not be allowed to attend classes, with the exception of students whose tuition and fees are paid by scholarships or sponsored contracts from private organizations, governmental agencies or foreign governments.

Delays in the receipt of monies from sponsors will not constitute an acceptable reason for non-payment. If The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (“university”) does not receive payment from a sponsor within 90 days, the student will be required to make the payment. Student payments will then be refunded upon receipt of collected funds from the sponsor.

The following actions may be taken against the student in the event of non-payment of tuition and fees:

B. Term Withdrawals and Refunds

Tuition and mandatory fees will be assessed in accordance with the Texas Education Code. The Refund Policy for dropping classes and withdrawing from the university is posted on the Office of the Registrar’s web site and the Bursar’s website.

C. Federal Student Aid Withdrawals, Refunds and Repayments

Refunds and repayments from institutional and federal student aid funds will be made in accordance with the Student Withdrawal, Refund and Repayment policy posted on the Student Financial Services web site.
