Term Bill Deadlines
Rutgers University no longer mails student term bills. Students can access their term bills electronically at http://www.studentabc.rutgers.edu/. The Term Bill due date’s are available on the Summer Session Registration Calendar.
If you have registered for both Session I & Session II courses, payment will be due during the first applicable due date.
It is the student’s responsibility to contact the Student Accounts Receivable Office (973/353-5423) to obtain, complete and submit their term bill on time. Students who fail to do so will be assessed a $125.00 late fee. Students are responsible for all tuition and fee payments unless they officially withdraw from courses in the Office of the Registrar by the specified dates, regardless of whether they attended the class. Not paying the bill does not constitute a withdrawal from the class.
Payment of all tuition and fees must be made according to the dates in the Summer Session registration calendar. Checks should be made payable to Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. The date on which the cashier receives the bill payment is the effective date of payment. Postmark dates will not be considered as payment dates. Bad checks and stopped checks are assessed a $10.00 return check service fee and $125.00 late fee and must be made good. Neither stopping payment nor a bad check will cancel registration.
Students are responsible for all tuition and fee payments unless they officially drop the course in the Office of the Registrar by the specified refund dates, regardless of whether they attend the class. Not paying the bill does not constitute a withdrawal from the class.

You may pay by e-check, which is an electronic withdrawal from your checking or savings back account. No additional fee is charged for the e-check, unless the electronic payment is returned as unpaid from your bank to the university. Returned e-checks are assessed a $10.00 return check service fee and $125.00 late fee. When you review your term bill and confirm your attendance online, you will be required to enter bank information and your email address.

If your financial aid exceeds your charge, your refund check will not be available until after the start of the summer term. It is important for you to plan ahead for the purchase of books, supplies and other expenses.
Students are now able to have financial aid refunds electronically deposited to a personal checking or savings account. Electronic refunds reduce the time it takes to receive a refund; eliminates the possibility of a refund being lost in the mail or stolen; and provides email notification alerting the student that a refund has been processed. To enroll, log onto your account online with your NetID and Password.
