A 4% service charge will be added to all accounts with an outstading balance. You must pay your balance in full to avoid the service charge. 


Unpaid accounts for Spring and Summer 2020 are considered past due. A balance due hold will remain active on all accounts with balances greater than $2000.00. Past due accounts may be in danger of going to collections.

Q: How will mandatory fees be handled in the summer 2020 semester, since most of the classes are going to be online? 

A: The RTD Pass Feee will NOT be charged for summer 2020 courses. As far as the rest of the mandatory fees, it depends:

  • Some courses that were originally scheduled as face-to-face, on campus courses will be taught online, but synchronously – meaning, you will log on and learn “live” during the same block of time your course was previously scheduled. Students in these courses will pay the same fees they would have paid as a face-to-face student.  
  • Some courses that were originally scheduled as face-to-face, on campus courses will be taught online, but asynchronously – meaning you will not meet at specific times, but will need to meet certain deadlines that your faculty instructor sets. Students in these courses will pay online student fees, plus the Mental Health Fee.  
  • Students registered in courses that were originally scheduled to be online will continue to pay online student fees, as well as the Mental Health Fee. 
  • For more information, please refer to a COVID-19 Updates & Resources publication from April 2, 2020:
