Accessing Your Term Bill

In This Section

Accessing and understanding your term bill is easier than you may think. The instructions below will help guide you through the process.

What is a term bill?

A term bill is your online student account summary which serves as Rutgers’ official billing statement and includes all tuition, fees, payments, financial aid and other credits for a specific term. You will see changes made to registration within 1-2 business days. You will not receive a paper term bill in the mail.

How to pay your online term bill

Before the start of each semester, you will receive an email notifying you that your term bill is available to view online when you log into the Student Account System authenticated through your NETID or RUID (9 digits). You will be given a DUE DATE to make payment. Payments made after the due date will be assessed a $125 late fee.

The following is a guide for planning when to expect your term bill:

Semester Date
Fall mid-July due early August
Spring early December due early mid-January
Winter mid-October due early December
Summer mid-March due early May

After you log into the student account system, you must first identify which term you want to view or submit a payment for.

You can now accomplish the following tasks:

  • Review your tuition and fees.
  • View the credits applied to your term bill, including financial aid, tuition remission, and scholarships.
  • Make payment to your account through e-check or credit card transactions (non-refundable, 2.7% convenience fee for credit card transactions).
  • Make payment from an international bank. Information can be found here.
  • Sign up for electronic refunds through RU ScholarRefund (direct deposit).
  • Information on hard waiver of  Student Health Insurance Plan.
  • Change your RU Book Advance status (opt in/opt out).
