Late Payment Fees

Late Payment Fees

To review your payment options, please click here: Payment Options.

Payment of your tuition and fees account balance (including room and board) is due in full prior to the start of each official school semester or term.  Payments received after the Last Payment Date, regardless of postmark or attempt dates, are considered late and are subject to late fees.  Late fees will be accrued on a monthly basis unless:

  1. The student has enrolled in the MET Payment Plan by the Last Payment Date and all outstanding account balances are included.
  2. Delays in financial aid application of funds are the result of University (see Alternate Financial Arrangements).  Note: It is recommended that all financial aid applications and required documentation be completed and submitted to the Financial Aid office at least 6 weeks prior to the start of the semester or term to avoid possible delays and resulting late fees.
  • An initial late fee of $175 will be assessed to any unpaid balance the day after the Last Payment Date.
  • Accounts with outstanding balances of $500 or more will be assessed late fees each subsequent month in the amount of $90.
  • Accounts with outstanding balances under $500 will be assessed late fees for each subsequent month in the amount of $75.
  • Late fees for Summer terms are assessed $165 for each term a balance is unpaid.

Creighton University is unable to waive late fees.
