Late Payment Policy

It is the responsibility of all University of New Haven students to pay his or her tuition and fee bill by the published due date in order to avoid a late payment fee. If your balance is not paid in full by the University’s established due date, a late payment fee equal to 1% of your outstanding balance will be assessed to your student account. Balances resulting from incomplete financial aid requirements and missing sponsorship paperwork are also considered to be delinquent and subject to the assessment of a late fee.

Financial Hold

A hold will be placed on any student account that is not in good financial standing with the University. Holds will prevent students from accessing certain university services such as registering for classes, requesting transcripts, viewing grades and receiving a diploma.

Late Fee Appeal

If you were assessed a late payment fee and feel you have extenuating circumstances beyond your control that prevented you from paying your tuition bill on time, you can complete the online Late Fee Waiver Request form below. A decision regarding your request will be sent to your University of New Haven student email account prior to the next billing cycle.


  • Student account balances must be paid in full prior to submitting an appeal. If the account is not paid in full, the appeal request will be automatically denied.
  • All requests must be submitted within 30 days of the assessment of a late payment fee.
  • If a late fee has been waived in a prior term, future requests will not be honored.
