Financial Information for UNH Law Students

Student payments and student refunds will be handled through Webcat.

  • Fall tuition bills are scheduled to post in early August and are due by the beginning of fall semester. Spring semester bills will be posted mid-December and due mid-January.  Monthly statements are issued if balances exist. 
  • Billing is “paperless” – online only.  Students are notified through their UNH Law-assigned email accounts when new bills are posted.  Parent Portal accounts are available for any student who wishes to grant account access to another person.
  • The bill will show the Account Balance (total charges), Pending Items (aid or payments that have not yet arrived) and Net Balance (the amount due after the pending items are subtracted).
  • Payments may be made online, or the bill can be printed and mailed with payment.  Payment is accepted through online check or credit card, paper check, bank check, money order, cash or wire transfer (contact Business Services for wire transfer account information).  A 2.75% service charge will be added to credit card transactions. 
  • An optional 5-month payment plan for fall and spring semesters is offered through Tuition Management Systems, and is due the first of each month from July - April.  TMS: (800)722-4867 https://unh.afford.com
  • Checks that have been returned for nonpayment are assessed a $30 return check charge.
  • Bills must be paid by due dates to avoid late fees.
  • Disbursement of financial aid is expected approximately one week prior to the start of each semester.  Students whose payments exceed their charges may request a refund any time after receipt and settlement of the tuition bill.  It is the student’s responsibility to initiate a refund request. A refund request form is available through Webcat.  Refunds through this form will be sent by direct deposit to the student’s savings or checking account.   Federally regulated (Title IV) refunds will be automatically generated within the required timeframe if not previously requested by the student. The required timeframe is defined as 14 days after the credit balance occurs or 14 days after the first day of class if the credit balance occurs on or before the first day of class.
  • Please contact UNH Business Services with any questions.
