UCCS SFS - Billing - FAQs

Main Campus FAQs
  1. When will I receive a bill?  Where can I see my balance ?

    DO NOT WAIT FOR A PAPER BILL.  Your itemized bill and balance due must be accessed through the myUCCS Portal.  Access the "Student Financial Services" area in the myUCCS Portal to view your itemized statement and balance, enroll in a deferred payment plan, and make payments.

    Should you require an account summary that includes charges and payments from the previous term, please send a request to our office at Be sure to include the term(s) for which you need documentation.
  2. When is my payment due?

    Please go to the Payment Policies and Deadlines page to view the deadlines and due dates for the various payment options.

  3. How do I read my bill?

    You may learn how to read your bill here: How to Read your Account Summary

  4. What if I register for classes after the first due date?

    Extended registration for the semester runs through the Census date. All charges will be due in the next billing cycle (see the Calendar page for details). Please be advised that students registering for classes after the Census date will be assessed a late registration fee of $50.

  5. I am receiving Financial Aid.  How does billing work for me?

    If you are using Financial Aid to pay your bill, and you do not expect to receive your aid before the due date (Census date or final add/drop date), you have the option to enroll in a payment plan to avoid late fees.  Payment Plan enrollment is available in the myUCCS Portal. Any amount not covered by Financial Aid or a Payment Plan agreement will be due on the semester due date (see the Calendar page for details).

  6. What is the College Opportunity Fund (COF)?  Am I eligible for COF?

    Please visit the COF website at to read about COF and determine if you are eligible.  Most undergraduate Colorado residents are eligible for COF.  Courses added after census date are not eligible for COF.

  7. I have already applied for COF. Why hasn't it applied toward my balance?

    In addition to applying for COF, you must authorize your COF funds to be paid by going to the myUCCS Portal and clicking on Student Financials (IBursar) > COF Authorization. Choose the option to Authorize COF and hit submit.

  8. I thought I only owed tuition for this semester.  Why am I being charged fees?

    Tuition is only a portion of your total bill.  For undergraduates, mandatory fees also apply every semester.  Click here to see a list of tuition and mandatory student fees.  Other fees may also apply such as course fees, room & board, fines, etc.

  9. How does billing work for Academic Outreach/Extended Studies Courses ?

    Academic Outreach/Extended Studies courses are billed differently than main-campus courses.  You can find the answers to your questions by visiting our Online and Academic Outreach billing page.
