Billing/Methods of Payment


Online Self-Service Center

After you register online, you will receive a postal letter from the University of Hartford containing your 8-digit user ID number, and email address. Use your ID and email address to access the Self-Service Center and check the status of a registration, make a payment, check grades, or view unofficial transcripts. You will also be able to authorize third-party payers to receive billing notifications via email. All billing information from the University will be on the Self-Service Center. Hartt Summerterm does not issue bills or process payments.

Email

Once you are issued a University of Hartford (hartford.edu) email address, all communications from the University will go to that address, not any other email address. You must start using your Hawkmail account as soon as you receive your new email address.

Billing/Methods of Payment

Students are now required to accept the Terms and Conditions of Enrollment prior to registering for classes each term. Students will be prompted to accept these terms when registering online. If registering in person, students can either accept terms online prior to registration or can sign a hard copy of the form at the time of registration.

University of Hartford student billing statements are delivered online rather than by U.S. mail. If you are a current University of Hartford student, you will receive notification of a billing statement available for viewing and payment only through your hartford.edu email address. New students can access their bill through the Self-Service Center once they receive a University of Hartford email address and ID number in the postal mail.

Students and authorized payers can make online payments by ACH (electronic fund transfer), credit card, or debit card through CASHNet SMARTPAY, a third-party payment processor operating under agreement with the University of Hartford to process electronic payments. There is no fee assessed for payment made by ACH. However, CASHNet does charge a nonrefundable 2.75 percent fee to process credit or debit card payments on your behalf. CASHNet accepts MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express credit card payments. Checks, travelers’ checks, and money orders can be mailed, along with a printed copy of the top portion of your billing statement, to:

            University of Hartford
            P.O. Box 416362
            Boston, MA 02241-6362

Cash and check payments may also be made at the Student Administrative Services Center (SASC) on the second floor of the Computer and Administration Center. Check payments must be made payable to the University of Hartford and be payable through a U.S. bank in U.S. dollars. Checks and ACH items returned for insufficient funds will result in a $25 fee.

Tuition and fees are due by May 30, 2018.

Students may elect to pay tuition under our Deferred Payment Option. Under this option, the following applies:

  • Students who register on or before May 3, 2018, should pay one-half tuition plus applicable fees at the time of registration. The remainder will be billed on May 3, 2018, and is due on or before May 30, 2018.
  • Students who register after May 3, 2018, but on or before May 30, 2018, should pay one-half tuition plus applicable fees at the time of registration. The balance should be paid in full on or before May 30, 2018. Students will not be billed for balance due; instead, they will be advised in person of the balance due if registering at the Student Administrative Services Center (SASC).

If the terms of the deferred payment option outlined above are not met, a default charge of 1.5 percent per month may be assessed on the unpaid balance until it is paid in full.

Students registering after May 30, 2018, have the option of paying in full or paying one-half tuition plus applicable fees at the time of registration. If you choose the one-half tuition plus fees option, please refer to the current billing schedule to determine when the remainder will be due. You can find the current student billing schedule on the University of Hartford Bursar’s website, under the Payment Information link.

1098-T Tuition Tax Statements

Federal law requires the University of Hartford to furnish Form 1098-T to enrolled students who have paid Qualified Educational Expenses as defined by the IRS. Students are required by the IRS to provide the school with their social security or tax identification number. If you have not provided your SSN to the school, please contact the Student Administrative Services Center at 860.768.4999 and they can update your record.

Refund and Withdrawal Policy

Participants enrolled in courses that are cancelled are entitled to a full credit on tuition. The technology fee is refundable but not the registration fee. Participants who elect to withdraw from a course after it has begun will not be entitled to a full credit on tuition. Participants who wish to withdraw should contact the Hartt Summerterm office at 860.768.4479.
