    eServices/VCU Self Service

    Students may view their student account in eServices accessing it through "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:

    • Account Summary by Term
    • Account Detail for Term
    • Statement and Payment History
    • Select Tax Year
    • Tax Notification
    • View Holds
    • Make a Payment                                                                                  

    Payments are due by the start of the semester. The university does not mail paper bills to enrolled students.  Students are notifed at their VCU email address when eBills (account statements) are available in the Billing and Payment Website.  Students may access a copy of their eBills (account statements) through eServices.  Students may also assign an authorized user in the Billing and Payment Website, in order that the user may view the eBills (account statements) and make online payments on behalf of the student.  eBills (account statements) are issued according to the billing schedule and will not automatically update with changes.  If changes are made to the students' accounts after the eBills (account statements) 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% 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.

    Refund Policy (Drop v. Withdrawal)

    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.

    Refund for Overpayments

    An overpayment from financial aid proceeds should be automatically refunded through the Financial Aid Refund Process. Requests for refunds that are not generated from the overpayment of financial aid should be made in writing to VCU Student Accounting Department.

    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.
