|Study Abroad Billing FAQs|
The $50 application fee is nonrefundable and charged upon submitting an application in the study abroad portal even if the application is incomplete. If a student does not end up attending the study abroad program, the $50 is also nonrefundable.
In general, if there is a bar on a student’s record, a refund may have been applied to the bar. However, a student can contact Student Accounts Receivable at (512) 475-7777 and a representative can explain exactly where the refund went.
If a scholarship check has been processed, it may be held by a student’s financial aid counselor. To check on the scholarship status, please contact Student Financial Services at (512) 475-6282 and speak to a financial aid counselor.
If a student has a financial bar, the scholarship check may have been applied to it. A student can contact Student Accounts Receivable at (512) 475-7777 and a representative can explain exactly where the scholarship went.

Students attending a CIEE study abroad program will first pay a confirmation fee directly to CIEE. The remainder of the study abroad bill will be paid directly to UT on the “What I Owe” page. An email will be sent out to all CIEE students at the time the bill is posted with instructions on how to pay and due dates.
Not all AIFS study abroad programs are billed directly by UT. If a student is unsure if they will receive their bill from AIFS or UT, they should contact their study abroad advisor at (512) 471-6490. For those AIFS programs billed directly by UT, students will still first pay an AIFS application fee and confirmation fee directly to AIFS (this is in addition to the Study Abroad office application fee). The remainder of the study abroad bill will be posted by UT on the “What I Owe” page. An email will be sent out to all AIFS students at the time the bill is posted with instructions on how to pay and due dates.
If a student clicks on the amount owed on his/her What I Owe page, a window will pop up with the due date listed.
Review the instructions to pay the study abroad program fee bill. If paying by mail, please include a copy of your program fee bill to be sent with the check. Keep in mind that your study abroad program fee bill is separate from any UT tuition or registration fees.
For most programs billed through our office, a student may defer his/her study abroad bill. Only students on financial aid can defer their study abroad program fee bill. Deferral of the study abroad program fee means that the due date has been extended until your financial aid is released. The program fee does not go away. If financial aid does not completely cover the program fee, the student is responsible for the balance immediately following financial aid disbursement. Students who are billed by UT for AIFS or CIEE programs cannot defer their bill.
