Paying Tuition and Fees
Students may have an owing balance after all financial aid, loans, and scholarships have been applied to their student account. Owing balances for each term are due by the date listed below. Owing balances and due dates may also be viewed by reviewing your statements on our online Billing and Payment System.
Owing Balance Due Dates*
Fall Semester: August 1
Spring Semester: January 1
Summer Sessions: May 1
*Any new charges incurred are due on the first of the month.
To help families better afford APU’s distinctive education, the university offers payment plans to all students currently enrolled—a 4-month payment plan for the fall and spring semesters and a 2-month payment plan in the summer semester—at no additional cost. If you would like to be enrolled in a payment plan, contact the Student Services Center. Students who wish to be removed from a payment plan may pay their owing balance in full at any time.
Payment Due Dates
4-Month Payment Plan
Fall Semester: August 1, September 1, October 1, November 1
Spring Semester: January 1, February 1, March 1, April 1
2-Month Payment Plan
Summer Semester: May 1, June 1
Semester charges minus semester financial aid, divided by five or four payments for fall and spring, and two payments for summer.
Note: If the semester balance is not paid in full by the last due date, students may be dropped from the next semester.
APU realizes that extenuating circumstances may sometimes impact a student’s ability to complete the semester. After a student begins attendance in a term and then stops attending all of his or her classes during the term, depending on the circumstances, it may be classified as a “withdrawal,” “leave of absence,” or “dismissal” from the university. For the purposes of charges assessed and financial aid eligibility, leaves of absence and dismissals are handled the same as withdrawals from the university.
