Bills, Payments & Disbursements
Every University of Minnesota student has a One Stop Student Services account that allows the student to view and pay bills for tuition, fees, and on-campus housing.
Paying Tuition and Fees
Billing notifications are sent at the start of the semester to your University email address (the “umn.edu” email address).
Most financial aid funds will be electronically transferred to your account each semester, but some correspondence may be sent via mail.
In order to receive your financial aid disbursement every semester, you must be registered for at least 3 credits each semester. This applies to students of all years.
Year 3 and 4 students: To receive your semester financial aid disbursements, you must be registered for at least 3 weeks (= 3 credits) each semester. The Medical School curriculum states you may schedule your clinical rotations as you wish. Be sure you understand which periods fall within each semester. Financial Aid regulations state you must be registered for courses to receive financial aid. You need to take at least 3 weeks (= 3 credits) each semester.
Year 1 students: Entering students are advised to start the school year with some money, in case aid is not paid on time. It is strongly recommended that you pay September rent prior to receiving fall financial aid. Also, it helps to have some extra money available for buying books the first week of fall semester.

*During the late evening of each scheduled disbursement date, that semester's financial aid begins to disburse to your University student account. Any credit balance amount will be refunded via Direct Deposit (see below) and should be received in your bank checking or savings account approximately 5-7 days later.
Credit balance refunds and direct deposit
If a credit balance remains in your University student account after your tuition, fees, and on-campus housing charges have been paid, the funds will be directly deposited into your chosen bank account.
Direct Deposit is the quickest and safest way for you to receive your credit balance refund.
Refunds can go to either a checking or savings account and be used for your books and living expenses.
