Student Account Balances 



Students are encouraged to pay their student account balance as if their initial residency determination is correct by the balance due date. Late fees can not be removed for applications that receive nonresident decisions. Any unpaid balance is assessed a monthly late payment fee of 1.5%. Monthly account statements are sent electronically to the student’s UK assigned email address the first of each month. Total amount due must be received on or before the 22nd of the month to avoid the late payment fee. An account hold for an unpaid balance will prevent class registration during priority registration windows. Questions regarding student accounts and payment options may be directed to Student Account Services - (859) 257-3406.
