Important Information Regarding Your Cost of Higher Education
If you are receiving financial aid, your award will be automatically released to your account. (If you change your mind about attending UHD, you MUST drop your classes). If payment or financial aid has not been received by the payment deadline, your registration will be canceled. A $20 fee will be added to all checks returned for insufficient funds.
All previous balances must be paid in full. If you have any amount owed for a previous term, your payment may be automatically credited towards your previous term balance. If you receive a refund and have any balance on your account, it is your responsibility to pay the balance within seven days of receipt. Failure to do so, may result in termination of current term registration.
