If you pay late, several consequences can apply. You can avoid these penalties and save money by paying on time.

Late and Finance Charges

Late and finance charges for the April 5 payment deadline have been waived.

A late fee is charged once per semester according to the table. A finance charge of one percent (1%) per month on the unpaid balance is charged to your account in addition to the late fee.To dispute late payment and finance charges, submit a late and finance charge adjustment petition online for review by a committee.

Financial Holds

Students with outstanding balances from spring 2020 will still be able to register for summer 2020 and fall 2020. 

A financial hold will prevent you from registering for classes, adding classes, getting transcripts and getting your diploma. To lift the hold, follow the instructions on the hold. Most holds are lifted immediately when you complete the task related to the hold. For more information, visit Resolve Your Holds & To-Do Items.

Past Semester Accounts

If you still have access to Buff Portal, you may still be able to pay online. If you do not see a balance due but you still have a hold, contact Student Debt Management, 303-492-5571 or studentdebtmanagement@colorado.edu. We're happy to help. Learn more about the past semester account process.
