At UT Permian Basin, we’re committed to making college accessible for everyone. That’s why we created a flexible, affordable option for students who would like to pay for college in four payments. 

How it works: 

  • Your total balance will be divided into four installments. There is a $35 enrollment fee for the fall and spring terms.  
  • There is a $25 enrollment fee for the summer terms, and your total balance will be divided into two installments. 
  • The first installment is due upon enrollment. The remaining installments are due on the 18th of September, October, and November for fall or the 18th of February, March, and April for spring. 
  • Late or missed payments are subject to a $10 late fee. 

All UT Permian Basin financial aid and scholarships (with the exception of work-study) will be paid towards your tuition and fees and other education charges that appear on your student bill. If your financial aid is in excess of all student billing charges, the remaining amount will be refunded to the student, unless the excess funds are from a Parent PLUS Loan and the parent requested the refund to be sent to them directly.  

Refunds appear as a “Student Refund” on your billing statement and will be sent either via U.S. Mail or direct deposit within three to five business days after your account balance shows a credit balance. Refunds are not generated the same day your aid disburses. You can sign up for a direct deposit on the MyUTPB portal so that funds are transferred directly to your bank account.  

If you do not sign up for direct deposit, the mailing address as indicated on your student account will be where Student Accounts sends your refund. If it is not correct, checks will not be forwarded, but rather returned to UTPB and will have to be picked up by the student. If you did not receive an expected refund, email studaccts@utpb.edu. You can sign up for direct deposit at my.utpb.edu.  

Drops and Withdrawals 

If you plan on withdrawing from the University or reducing your course load, you may be entitled to a refund. Please review the policy below and view our Drop and Withdrawal Calendar to see the applicable dates and percentage that you could be eligible to receive.  

Drops and Withdrawals Deadlines and Refund Percentage 

Refund Policy 

All refunds are completed after the census date (this is the deadline by which all enrollment and payment arrangements must be finalized; see: Drop and Withdrawal Calendar). If students do not officially withdraw by the census date, they may remain liable to pay for the enrolled courses, even if not attending classes. 

All drops or withdrawal actions must be initiated in writing by the student through the Registrar’s Office. A drop is defined as dropping one or more courses while remaining enrolled in other courses. A 100% refund is given for those hours dropped during late registration. A withdrawal is defined as dropping ALL courses. Drops and withdrawals become effective the date that the written request, with all required signatures, is received by the Registrar’s Office.  

You may receive this form in the mail or electronically. The 1098-T form is used by eligible educational institutions to report information about their student to the IRS as required by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. Eligible institutions are required to submit the student’s name, address, and taxpayer’s identification number, enrollment, and academic status. The form is for information only—no actions are required. It serves to alert students that they may be eligible for federal income tax education credits. 

While it is a good starting point, the 1098-T, as designed and regulated by the IRS, does not contain all of the information needed to claim a tax credit. There is no IRS requirement that you must claim the tuition and fee deduction or and education credit. Claiming education tax benefits is a voluntary decision for those who may qualify. (Non-resident aliens do not qualify to claim this tax credit.) 

UT Permian Basin is unable to provide tax advice, but should you have questions, you should seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer, advisor, or the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.
