If a student leaves the University without graduating or officially withdrawing, they must submit a written request to Student Business Services to receive a refund of their deposit.

Note: The university reserves the right to cancel registrations not paid by their due date or by the official census date for the semester or summer term to comply with state laws requiring payment of tuition and fees.

Payments and Dues Dates

Students are expected to meet all financial obligations to the university by designated due dates. Failure to pay the amounts owed may result in the student's registration cancellation, being barred from future enrollment, and receiving official transcripts. Payments returned for insufficient funds or invalid accounts may result in canceling the student's registration and restrictions on payment options if not cleared within the period given.

Due Dates

Payment Plan

Tuition, most required fees, room, board, and parking are included in the payment plan, which consists of four equal payments during the semester. A $50 service charge to cover the handling cost will be assessed for each student who selects the payment plan. Students may pay in advance at any time during a semester; however, the service charge will not be refunded. Students who wish to pay their bursar bills can select this option through the Howdy Portal. The payment plan is an option students must choose at the beginning of each semester. There are penalties for failure to pay by the specified payment due dates. A late payment penalty is assessed for each payment not received on or before its payment plan due date. Students may also be subject to late registration charges and cancellation of courses if payment is not made by the due date.

Payment Plan

Cancelation or Withdrawal

Before the 20th class day (15th class day for the summer term), the University reserves the right to cancel registrations not paid by their due date to free the classroom spaces for other students and ensure the most efficient utilization of University resources.

Once a student has registered for classes, they must take one of the following courses of action to remain in good standing with the University:

  • Pay all amounts due by the specified due date
  • Drop all classes before the first class day
  • Complete the online withdrawal process found in the Student Withdrawal channel on the My Record tab in Howdy if on or after the first class day.

This is especially important for students awarded scholarships or financial aid since the aid may automatically pay tuition and fees and cause the registration to be held even though the student has decided not to attend. Failure to drop classes or officially withdraw and request cancellation of an unwanted registration may result in grades of F or I (Incomplete) in all courses for the semester. The student will be required to reimburse the University for scholarships and other financial aid applied to their account and will be held responsible for paying all fees for the semester, regardless of whether they attended classes.

Dropping or Withdrawing

Non-Funded Course Fees (3-Peat Rule)

A course repeated by a student more than twice at a public institution of higher education in Texas may not be reported to the state for funding. As a result, the institution must pass the non-funded portion on to all students or charge a supplementary fee to the student repeating the course. 

A student attempting certain courses more than twice at Texas A&M University will be subject to a supplementary fee of $125 per semester credit hour ($375 for a 3-hour course) for the repeated course in addition to tuition and required fees associated with the course.

3-Peat Rule

Failure to Pay

If payment is delinquent when a semester ends, the student will be removed from the university's rolls and will not receive credit for academic work. Students will not be readmitted to the University until all past-due balances, including late charges, are paid. If a student is removed from the rolls of the University or is withdrawn for failure to pay amounts owed to the University, a $50-$200 reinstatement fee will be assessed in addition to any other late fees or penalties already incurred. It must be paid before the student will be reinstated. Payments can be made online at the Howdy Portal.

Returned Check Charge

If a check or electronic check accepted by the university is returned by the bank on which it is drawn, the person presenting it must pay a returned check service charge of $30. If the check is for tuition or fees, the student registration for that semester or term may be canceled.
