UAB - Students - Paying for College - When to Pay

In order to make sure you have the best possible access to the classes you need to complete your degree on a timely schedule, students must adhere to the below payment deadlines. Students receiving need based financial aid, external funding (e.g. PACT, VA benefits, etc.), or scholarships will not be negatively impacted by this policy.

Payment deadlines are listed on official academic calendar.

For fall and spring semesters, UAB offers two options for payment.

  • UAB students have the ability to choose a payment plan option from the two below. Students who do not make the initial payment of 100 percent of their account balance will automatically be enrolled in the Blazer Flex Plan which will include a $25 enrollment fee. Please review the details of each plan carefully to determine which is the right one for you.

    Students who initially register between the day after the payment deadline and the end of drop/add will be required to pay 100 percent of their account balance or a third of their account balance within 24 hours of registration.
