Payment of Registration Expenses

The payment of charges for tuition, fees, room, and board is part of the registration process. Troy University encourages full payment of all tuition and related fees by the last day of the regular registration period for the current semester or term. Payment of fees may be made on-line using Self-Service or at the office of the Student Financial Services. Troy University accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, money order, paper check, and cash.

Payment Plan

Students with an account balance after the first payment due date will be placed in a two-part payment plan and will be assessed a $25.00 payment plan fee.

One-half of the amount owed to Troy University will be due by the first scheduled payment due date.   Students may apply the following toward the first payment:

  • Awarded institutional scholarship
  • Awarded financial aid
  • Payment by paper check, money order, cash, debit card or credit card

The remaining amount is owed by the final payment due date. Payment due dates are published and are approximately two months apart. Financial Aid above what is needed to cover the first payment due may be applied to the remaining payments due. The student should be prepared to pay any amount not covered by Financial Aid. Failure to pay the entire balance by the final payment date will result in a late fee of $50.00. Also, failure to satisfy financial obligations to the University will result in the student's restriction from future class registration, possibly having the account assigned to a collection agency, and non-release of transcripts.

It is the responsibility of the students to pay their account balance by the established payment due dates.

A current semester or term debt must be paid-in-full before a student will be allowed to register during registration dates that fall before the final payment due date.


A statement will be emailed to students approximately 15 days prior to the first payment due date for those students who pre-registered for classes before the tuition and fee rates were finalized by the university. Subsequent payment reminders will be sent to students by e-mail. Billing inquiries should be directed to the office of Student Financial Services.

Miscellaneous Expenses

Offset of Funds

Once accounts are paid, any remaining balance will be refunded to the student.

Change in Regulations or Expenses

Students suspended for disciplinary reasons are not eligible for refunds or reductions in liability. Refunds will be applied to any outstanding obligations and to any scholarship, grant, or loan received for the semester or term.

Students may encounter extenuating circumstances that warrant an exception to the refund policy.
