Tuition, Billing and Due Dates

All bills are posted online. Paper bills are no longer issued.

Christopher Newport University bills tuition and fees, and room and board charges by the semester:

  • Fall bills will be available in mid-July.
  • Spring bills will be available in mid-December.

Tuition and fees are due at the time you register or no later than 5 p.m. on the payment due date. Mailed payments must be received in the Business Office before the due date. Postmark date does not apply.

If you register for classes after the published payment date, payment is due on the day you register, or the first day of class, whichever comes first.

Cancellation of Registration for Nonpayment

In the fall semester, the University may cancel registration for students who have not made financial arrangements by the payment due date. These students may register again during scheduled registration periods. The University does not guarantee that students will be able to reclaim their original schedules. Classes are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

In the spring term, registration may be canceled at the end of the schedule adjustment period. It is the student’s responsibility to officially withdraw from school if not attending.

Delinquent Financial Obligations

Students who have outstanding financial obligations to the University (including tuition and fees, room and board, parking fees and fines, library fees and fines, checks returned for nonsufficient funds, etc.) will be refused all services at the University until these financial obligations have been paid in full.

Students will not be permitted to register for subsequent terms, grades will be held, and the University will not issue official transcripts. This policy also applies to students who retain property that belongs to the University.

If a student’s financial account becomes delinquent:

  • The University charges a late payment penalty and an administrative fee.
  • The University may turn the account over to a third-party collection agency/credit bureau, the Department of Taxation and the Attorney General’s Office.
  • The University is permitted under Virginia law to attach Virginia state income tax refunds or lottery winnings in repayment of any debt owed to the University.
  • The student is responsible for all administrative costs, collection fees and attorney’s fees incurred in the collection of funds owed to the University.

The University reserves the right to withdraw or change the fees indicated above. Interpretation of financial policy and fees is the responsibility of the executive vice president. The president of the University has final authority.
