[Tuition and Other Expenses]
Deferment of Registration Expenses
Students who meet the following eligibility requirements may defer up to one-half
of the current semester charges for tuition, course fees, residence hall charges, Dining Dollars and meal plans:
- All prior semester charges must be paid in full.
- If the student wants to include a meal plan, these charges must be included at the time the deferment is granted.
- At least one-half of the current semester charges must be paid at the time the student's class schedule is confirmed.
The required payment of one-half of all current semester charges can be made by cash, check, money order, credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover), financial aid applied to the student's account, faculty/staff or graduate student grants, sponsoring agency contracts, or anticipated financial aid verified by the Office of Student Financial Aid. The deferred amount plus a deferment fee, currently $30.00 is payable by the midpoint of the semester for fall and spring.
Financial aid (other than work-study) is applied to a student's account in payment of institutional charges. No refund will be made on applied aid unless the student's account reflects a credit balance.
Meal plans contracted for after the student has confirmed registration for the semester must be paid in full at the Bama Dining office.
