The Student Accounting Department is responsible for the assessment, billing and collection of tuition, housing and dining charges, and other university fees. The department also bills third-party payers for VCU charges and issues refunds to eligible students.
Tuition is determined by the student’s residency status, the number of credit hours for which the student is registered, the student’s course of study and the student’s classification level.

For questions regarding the eStatement (account statement) please refer to the “Important Information” link located on the top right-hand side in the Billing and Payment Website homepage.
Students may view their student account in eServices accessing it through the myVCU portal at https://my.vcu.edu/, selecting the “eServices/VCU Self Service” option under “General Resources,” the “Student” option and the “Student Account” option. Under the “Student Account” selection students have the following options:
Payments are due by the start of the semester. The university does not mail paper bills to enrolled students. Students are notified at their VCU email address when eStatements (account statements) are available on the Billing and Payment Website. Students may access a copy of their eStatements through eServices. Students may also assign an authorized user on the Billing and Payment Website so that the user may view the eStatements and make online payments on behalf of the student. The eStatements are issued according to the billing schedule and will not automatically update with changes. If changes are made to the students’ accounts after the eStatements are issued, students may view their current student account activity reflecting the updated balances through eServices and/or through the Billing and Payment Website. Authorized users may also view the current student account activity reflecting the updated balances through the Billing and Payment Website. Students whose payments are received after the payment deadline may be assessed a late fee. The late fee is 10 percent of the unpaid balance and does not exceed $100. Payment of the late fee is due upon assessment. Students with past due balances may have financial holds placed on their accounts prohibiting registration and the release of official transcripts and diplomas. Holds for past due balances may not be released until the past due balance including all late fees is paid in full.
During the fall and spring semesters only (excluding short and nonstandard courses), students who drop or withdraw from classes may receive a reduction in their tuition and fees based on the Official University Refund Policy.
An overpayment from current semester financial aid proceeds and scholarships should be automatically refunded through the financial aid refund process. Requests for refunds that are not generated from the overpayment of current semester financial aid or scholarships should be made in writing to VCU Student Accounting Department.
