Payment of Tuition and Fees

Students must meet all financial obligations to the University by their due dates to avoid late penalties. Failure to pay amounts owed may result in cancellation of the student’s registration, barring from future enrollment and non-issuance of official transcripts. State law requires that tuition and fees be paid prior to the first day of classes. Students who wish to pay fees in installments can select the option on the My Finances tab on the Howdy Portal.

Obligation to Pay Tuition, Required Fees, Other Fees and Charges for Optional Services

By registering for classes, students agree to pay all tuition and required fees associated with their registration, optional services and other fees, whether paying in full or utilizing the installment payment option. Failure to pay tuition, fees and other charges may result in penalties, late registration fees and/or possible cancellation.

Student Account Deferment Option for Recipients of Military Education Benefits

In accordance with 38 U.S. Code § 3679 (e), Texas A&M University will not impose any penalty, including - the assessment of late fees - the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities - the requirement that a student receiving military education benefits borrow additional funds because of the student’s inability to meet financial obligations to the University on time as the result of the delayed disbursement of a state or federal military-related student financial assistance program covering tuition and fees.

Eligible students may request deferment for payment of tuition and fees if the military-related financial assistance is delayed. Requests for deferment should be requested prior to the first bill due date. Deferment will be permitted for up to 60 days from the first day of the semester. Should late fee penalties be inadvertently assessed, eligible students may seek assistance from the Aggie One Stop or Scholarships & Financial Aid to request reversal of fees. These offices will in turn collaborate with Student Business Services to manage the student account until receipt of the benefit payment.

Financial Obligation for Graduating Students

According to Texas A&M University Student Rules and Chapter § 54.007 (c) of the Texas Education Code, all financial obligations to the University must be paid by the end of the semester. Failure to settle all financial obligations will result in withholding a student’s diploma at graduation. Additionally, a block will be placed on the student’s account which will prohibit registration in subsequent semesters and receipt of official transcripts.
