Payment Plans

University of Houston-Clear Lake realizes that everyone needs assistance paying bills at one time or another. We have developed two specific payment plan methods you can use if you ever require help making your tuition payments: Installment Plan and Short-Term Loan.

Installment Plan

At the time of registration for a fall or spring semester, you may elect a four-payment plan option, instead of paying your tuition and fees in full.

  • One quarter of tuition and fees is due at time of registration, and the remaining balance will be split in three equal installments.
  • A $15 non-refundable fee for the multiple payment plan is charged.
  • The installment plan is not available for summer semesters.
  • Courses added after the original registration period will adjust into the installment plan and an additional amount may be due depending on the add/drop activity.
  • Subsequent due date of remaining payment will be listed in the student’s E-Services account under the "charges due" tab.
  • You are responsible for all installment payments being made on time.
  • Additional payment notices are not mailed.
  • A $10 late fee is charged for each late installment.
  • If you don’t meet the installment payment deadlines, your records will be encumbered until all fees and penalties have been paid.
  • If you have not fulfilled your financial obligation on the installment plan by the end of the semester, you records will be “encumbered,” and UHCL will not issue any grades or transcripts.
  • A $50 default fee will be assessed to the existing debt.

In order for you to be eligible for enrollment in subsequent semesters and have the encumbrance removed from their records, all penalties and contract balances must be paid in full.

Short-Term Loan

When you register for classes in a fall, spring or summer  semester, you may elect a two-payment plan option, instead of paying your tuition and fees in full.  For summer, the short term loan is only available for Summer I registration.

  • One quarter of tuition and fees is due at the time of registration, and the remaining amount will be due later in the term.
  • The Short-Term Loan bears a five per cent (5%) interest per annum.
  • If you haven’t fulfilled the financial obligations of the Short-Term Loan by the end of the semester, your records will be “encumbered,” and UHCL will not issue any transcripts or grades from that semester.
  • There is a $15 non-refundable fee for the payment plan.
  • Courses added after the original registration period will adjust into the payment plan and an additional amount may be due depending on add/drop activity.
  • Subsequent due date of remaining payment will be listed in the student’s E-Services account under the "charges due" tab.
  • Additional payment notices are not mailed.
  • If you don’t meet the payment deadline for the short-term loan, your records will be encumbered until you pay all the fees and penalties.

You must pay the balance of all payment plans and contracts in full to be eligible to enroll in classes for the next semester and/or to have any encumbrance removed from your records.
