Payment & Billing Procedures

Payment Plans

KPC uses Tuition Management Systems (TMS) to administer payment plans. Plan enrollment requires a $70 registration fee and it will not be activated unless the initial payment and registration fee has been made. The earlier you sign up for a payment plan, the smaller your monthly payments will be. Students may sign up for a TMS account here.

The KPC Cashier Services strives to make paying your student account effortless and transparent so you can focus on your education.

Effective June 1, 2016 credit and debit card payments for student accounts (tuition and fees) will no longer be accepted for processing by KPC Bookstore Cashier Services. Credit/debit card payments will only be accepted online via UA's Touchnet PayPath or TMS Student Account Center for a fee of 2.75%. For additional information regarding this change, please see the FAQ section of UAA's accounting webpage.

The "free" payment options available are:

  • Web Check (ACH) payments may be made on UAOnline for free, the service fee will NOT apply to these transactions
  • Checks, cash and money orders will continue to be accepted at KPC Bookstore. Either in person at KPC's Kenai River Campus Bookstore, or via USPS 156 College Road, Soldotna, AK 99669

All tuition, fees, tuition waiver request forms and other charges for the semester must be paid in full by the payment deadline unless arrangements have been made with Campus Services. In addition, any charges unpaid at the end of previous semesters are due and payable prior to re-enrollment at the University. 

A $30 return check fee is charged on all checks returned for insufficient funds, closed accounts or stop payments. 

Tuition and fee charges may be audited, corrected and adjusted before the end of the current semester. Students are notified of adjustments by mail. 

No refunds are issued for $2 or less. Refunds are processed for the current semester after the add/drop period is over.

An electronic bill will be generated on the 15th of each month that will be available to students via their UAOnline account. Students will receive an email reminder at their UA assigned email address each time a bill is generated. NO PAPER BILLS ARE GENERATED. A link on the UAOnline Statement and Payment History page allows access to pay by credit card or electronic check. To view the electronic bill, access UAOnline, choose Student, Student Account, then Statement and Payment History. 

Students are academically and financially responsible for registration activity and will be held responsible for all payments for all courses for which they are registered. Late payment fees will be assessed and accounts will be placed on hold that prevents registration for additional courses and obtaining grades or transcripts. 

Remember to officially withdraw by the published deadlines if you are unable to complete a course. Failure to do so will result in a grade of “F” for nonattendance and may affect your financial aid and grade point average (GPA). Deadlines will be adjusted for courses with dates other than full semester length. Be sure to check with Campus Services ahead of time for pro-rated deadlines for short courses. 

Billing Procedures

An electronic bill will be generated on the 15th of each month and is available to students via their UAOnline account. Students receive an email reminder at their UA assigned email address each time a bill is generated. No paper bills will be sent. A link on the UAOnline Statement and Payment History page allows access to pay by credit card or electronic check. Payments may be made in person by cash, check, or by VISA, MasterCard, Discover Card or American Express. A $30 return check fee is charged on all checks returned for insufficient funds, closed accounts, or stop payments. Tuition and fee charges may be audited, corrected and adjusted before the end of the current semester. Students are notified of adjustments by mail. 

No refunds are issued for $2 or less. Refunds for the current term will be processed after the close of the add/drop period.

Financial Obligations

When students register for courses, the University holds them financially responsible for that registration. There will NOT be a University-initiated drop for non-payment action. Students who do not plan to attend must drop their courses within the 100% refund period to avoid assessment of tuition and fees. If a student fails to attend the courses in which he/she has registered, the student is still financially obligated for any tuition and fees due.

Failure to Meet Financial Obligations/Late Payment Fees

University policy requires a financial hold be placed on student records if they fail to meet their financial obligations. This hold will prevent any enrollment, transcript, or graduation activity.

Past due accounts will be sent to a collection agency. Late fees and/or collection costs will be added to the student’s account. The past due debt will be reported to a local credit bureau. The University is authorized to garnish State of Alaska Permanent Fund Dividends (PFDs) for payment of past due accounts.
