Payment of Tuition & Fees
Tuition and fees are payable in full during the registration period, and prior to the first day of classes. Students that decide to pay in full during the registration process will receive a 2% discount from the remaining balance that is not covered by financial aid or other sponsorships. Students may opt to defer payment for thirty (30) days at a cost of $15.00 (deferred payment fee), after paying 50% of total cost (including other financial aid). The deferred payment will allow the student a grace period after the first day of classes to pay the remaining balance without paying late charges. The registration process is not complete until all fees have been paid or proper arrangement for deferred payment has been made.
In case the student cannot fully satisfy his debt prior to registration, the University's collection policy is as follows:
- Tuition and fees due from previous terms of study must be paid in full, prior to the student registering for the current trimester.
- Any balance remaining after 30 days will be subject to a 1.5% monthly surcharge.
- Balances remaining unpaid after 180 days will be subject to a collection fee of $20 (see (b) above).
Students who have requested financial aid or veteran benefits must consult either the Director of Student Financial Aid or the Institution's Veterans Representative in the Registrar's Office, before their registration can be completed.
Payment of fees can be made either in cash, money order, a bank manager's check, a certified check, Automatic Teller (ATH), Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. Failure to pay any University fees when due may result in administrative withdrawal or withholding copies of student's academic records or other documents by the appropriate University officials. Students with pending balances on their accounts are not permitted to enroll in subsequent quarters.
Students eligible for Veterans benefits are required to make their financial arrangements in line with the policies of the University for all students.
The Finance Office is responsible for complying with the refund policy established by the Institution. The procedure to apply for a refund must be submitted in writing, and in accordance with the academic term calendar.

Federal Return Policy
The Federal Return Policy states that the institution must return in full all the Title IV funds assigned to a student who withdraws and/or is terminated on or before completing 60% of the term of period enrolled for which aid was awarded. This return will be calculated, case by case, based on the student’s last day of attendance.
Students failing to pay their debt to the university on or before the day payment is due may be excluded from graduation. The University may also withhold grades, the issuance of transcripts, degrees, diplomas, and the granting of certificates of good standing to any student whose account is in arrears. Inactive students with debts will have the opportunity to pay the pending balances. Their payment plan agreement with Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico is held in association with the United Credit Bureau Service. If the students fail to comply with the payment plan, they are referred to a collection agency. Students referred to an agency for collection will be charged an additional $20.00 fee.
