Bills, Payments and Refunds

Understanding Your E-Bill

E-Bills are issued on or about the 20th of each month, and payment is due on the 15th of the following month.
Email notification is sent to the student's email address, as well as to Authorized Users, when E-Bills are issued and ready to be viewed at Paper invoices are not sent.

A billing postcard is mailed to the student's permanent U.S. address at the time the first Fall semester E-Bill is issued. Spring semester billing postcards are sent to all newly enrolled students.

E-Bill Balance vs. MyUAlbany Balance

The balance on your E-Bill is the balance at the time the E-Bill was issued. Any changes you make to your financial aid, enrollment or payments will change the balance owed. A real-time balance is available on MyUAlbany on the "Finances" tab under "My Student Account."

If your E-Bill and MyUAlbany account balances differ, you may pay whichever balance is less.
