Tuition Payments

All tuition statements are viewable on the Online Student Accounts Center, which can be accessed through WebAdvisor. Students may grant account access authorization to other users, such as parents, through their online student account. Students or authorized users may also schedule payments for future dates through this service.

Aurora University does not mail paper tuition statements. If you need a paper record, you may print your statement from the Online Student Accounts Center from your home computer or from the computer labs on campus.

Payments can be made online by ACH or credit card. You may mail or drop off payments by check, money order, cash, cashier’s check or credit card. We also accept credit card payments by phone (630-844-5470).

Tuition Policies

All tuition and fees are due to Aurora University by the tuition due date as stated on the signed Payment Agreement Form unless fully covered under an approved payment plan option and/or financial aid.

Tuition charges for any course registrations or changes in housing and meal plans that occur after the published payment due date are due immediately upon incurring the charge.

Tuition and fees (including room and board charges) are due by the due date whether or not an electronic billing statement has been generated or viewed. Note that late changes in registration, housing, or meal plan requests may make it impossible for Aurora University to generate a statement prior to the due date. It is the responsibility of the student to follow up on changes they make and verify that their account is paid in full.

Any ACH or check returned for any reason will be subject to a $30 returned check fee.

Late Fees - Students who have a past due balance of $400 or more after the end of the 100% refund period (end of the first week of the semester), will be assessed a $100 late fee, prohibited from future registrations, and prohibited from receiving grade reports or transcripts. Any requests appealing the assessment of late fees must be submitted in writing to the Student Accounts Office. Please access our online Late Fee Appeal Form and submit to the Director of Student Accounts. Accounts past due $400 or more after week 5 will be charged a $200 late fee, and accounts past due $400 or more at the end of the 10th week of the semester will be assessed an additional $300 late fee. For balances under $400 a finance charge of 9% per annum will be charged monthly on balances due. 

Students whose accounts remain in arrears will be referred to a licensed collection agency.

Students who establish a delinquent payment history may be required to pay their out-of-pocket expenses in full prior to any future registration.

Future registrations will be administratively cancelled as a result of non-payment for the current term. Once the account balance is cleared, students should request a registration clearance to release the hold placed on their account. This may require the student be re-advised for available class placement. Additionally grades and transcripts will be withheld due to nonpayment. 

Only completed Financial Aid can be considered as a payment against the account balance due. Delaying the completion of Financial Aid by late filing of the FAFSA or delays in turning in any requested verification or application documents is considered a late payment and will result in the same late fees, service charges, and restrictions as described above. Students are strongly encouraged to file their FAFSAs by April 15 each year. All financial aid documentation must be completed and submitted to the Financial Aid Office by July 1 for the upcoming academic year to avoid late fees. If financial aid is not complete by the published due date, payment in full is expected. If later completion of financial aid results in an overpayment, a refund can be issued. Please see the Overpayments and Refunds section for more information.
