Term Bill

In This Section

To help your student access and understand their term bill, below are instructions that will help guide them through the process.


What is a term bill?

A term bill is an 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. Your student will see changes made to registration within 1-2 business days.

Note: Students will not receive a paper term bill in the mail.


How can students pay their online term bill?

Before the start of each semester, students will receive an email notifying them that their term bill is available to view online when they log into the Student Account System authenticated with their NETID or RUID (9 digits). Students will be given a DUE DATE to make payment.

Note: Payments made after the due date will be assessed a $125 late fee.

The following is a guide for helping your student plan when to expect their term bill:

Semester Date
Fall mid-July due early August

How can I pay my student's bill?

Rutgers University now allows its students to add an authorized payer or user to their student account. If your student adds you to their list, this will not give you access to veiw their term bill balance. This will only give you access to make a payment. Additionally, if you wish to have the ability to view your student's records including the term bill, your student would need to grant you access by completing the appropriate actions within the myGuest portal located at my.rutgers.edu
