Your student may check their up-to-date account balance by logging into UCDAccess
and scrolling to the "Finances" section. In addition, your student may
set you up as an “Authorized Payer”. This will allow you to view your
student’s electronic billing statement (E-Bill), print it out if you so
desire, and make an online payment. Once your student has set you up as
an Authorized Payer, they will give you your own special login ID and
password to use when accessing their E-Bill. Each time a new E-Bill is
available for your student, you will receive an email notification which
will include a link to the E-Bill login and step-by-step instructions
for accessing your student’s E-Bill. If you typically pay your student’s
tuition and fee bill, CU Denver encourages you to ask your student to
establish you as an Authorized Payer.
To set you up as an Authorized Payer, your student will login to
UCDAccess, select the "account information, bills, and payments" link
from the Finances section, then select the “Setup Authorized Payers”
link and follow the instructions provided.
Have your student authorize you as a payer on their account and send you the information you can use to pay their bill.
Follow the instructions to authorize a new payer on your account
may pay online with an electric check or credit (a nonrefundable 2.75%
service fee applies to all credit/debit card payments), in-person at the
Bursar's Office or mail a check or money order payment to the address
provided on the .PDF version of your student's E-bill.
Students will receive an e-bill notification in their UCDenver.EDU
email account each time an E-Bill has been posted. Students may
authorize their parent(s) or other payers (up to five people) to view
their bill and make online payments their behalf. This authorization is
done on UCDAccess under the financial tab. Once set up, the authorized
payers will also receive an e-bill notification when their student's
bill is available. CU Denver strongly suggests that your student set you
up as an authorized payer.
Yes, CU Denver offers a deferred payment plan
for students. This plan allows students to pay their tuition and fee
balance in four installments. Students may enroll in the payment plan
online via UCDAccess. There is a $35.00 convenience fee for electing the
deferred payment plan.
Fees are allocated into three categories: Administrative Charges, Instructional Program and Course Fees, Mandatory Student Fees. Each fee category does not apply to each student as they are assessed all appropriate fees based on the category determined
by their enrollment.
Administrative charges are applied to accounts for items such as course drop after census, returned checks and deferred payment plans. Instructional program and course fees are applied to accounts dependent on the student's enrollment. These fees are
assessed per credit hour or as a flat rate per term. Mandatory Student Fees are assessed to all students enrolled in on campus courses.
CU Denver encourages all students to sign up for direct deposit,
which is the most efficient and quickest method for refunds. This will
allow your student’s refund to be electronically deposited into any
domestic bank account.
For Student, How to Sign Up for Direct Deposit of Refunds:
In your "Student Center", select "Student Account"
Click on "Direct Deposit Student Refunds"
Follow the instructions and fill out the account information
If your student elects not to sign up for Direct Deposit, their refund will be mailed to them in the form of a paper check.
The refund process for direct deposit can take approximately 3 to 5
business days from the time that a credit balance is created on the
student's account. Paper check refunds are processed weekly on
Wednesdays and mailed to the mailing address in the UCDAccess Portal.
During the application and acceptance process, parents are given a
“Parent PLUS Loan Request and Authorization Form” which allows them to
select how the university processes any potential PLUS loan refunds. If
the parent chooses to allow the refund to be issued to their student,
the refund will be treated much like any other student account refund.
If the parent elects to personally receive the refund, a refund check
will be generated and mailed to the parent’s address.
