Tuition and Fees Payment/Refund Policy

Tuition and Fees Payment Procedures

  • Students pay registration fees prior to registration each semester. Deadlines are posted in the academic calendar.

  • Students complete the registration process.

  • Students either pay tuition in full or arrange for a payment plan and pay the first installment of tuition before the census date for the semester.

  • Housing for each semester must be paid in full at the time of registration.

Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with their tuition bills,as well as the options for payment. A deferment will be allowed for that portion of the charges to be paid by loans, grants, and stipend checks. Accounts may later be adjusted and re-billed based on changes in class schedules, housing arrangements and financial aid awards.

Payment Methods

Payments may be made in person, online, by mail, or over the phone. Acceptable forms of payment are credit card (Visa, MasterCard), cash, check, money order or wire transfer. Students should make checks or money orders payable to Colorado Heights University and should include their full name. CHU does not accept post-dated checks. There is a $50 charge for checks returned for insufficient funds. Payments must be made in U.S. funds.

Financial Email:Finance@ch.university.

In-Person Payments:Payments can be made in the Business Office during business hours (please check availability). Students may pay their bills in person via credit card, cash, check or money order.

Mailed Payments:Students may mail payments to the address below. Students must include their full name, student ID number, the semester, and program for which the payment is intended.

  • Colorado Heights University
  • Business Office
  • 3001 S. Federal Boulevard
  • Denver, CO 80236

Receipt of Payment:A canceled check will serve as receipt of payment. Under no circumstances should cash be mailed. Payment to the account by someone other than the student will be accepted by the University in the name of the student. However, any refund or credit balance due to withdrawal or overpayments will be made directly to the student.


If payment arrangements have not been made on/or before the census date, the student's registration is subject to cancellation. The University reserves the right to deny access to, or use of, University facilities to any student with an outstanding balance. A student who fails to settle any account due to the University will not be considered a student in good standing and will not be allowed to enroll for the following semester. The University reserves the right to restrict the future registration of such a student, to withhold the awarding of a diploma, to withhold transcripts of academic records, to officially withdraw a student and/or to restrict the use of University resources.


If a student is registered for a particular semester but elects not to attend, the student must notify the Registrar immediately. Non-attendance does not cancel charges and the student will be held financially accountable for all courses for which he/she is registered.

Internships/Independent Study

The University considers an internship or independent study a course like any other and therefore is subject to tuition and fees. The amount charged will depend on the number of credit hours taken. Internship or independent study payment deadlines are dependent on the date that registration occurs.

Tuition Payment Options

Students must pay tuition and fees in full or as described under the 50-50 Payment Plan or the Monthly Payment Plan options below.

Payment in Full

The registration fee is due prior to registration. Tuition must be paid on/or before the census date.

F-1 students

All first semester international students must pay fees at the time of registration and tuition in full on/or before the term census date.

If you are very clear about your tuition, you can go to SOMS to see your tuition payment status.

Payment Plan Default

Failure to make a payment by its due date subjects the student to removal from the payment plan and the student's entire account balance due immediately, at the discretion of the Business Office. The University reserves the right to indefinitely remove payment plan privileges from students who are delinquent in their payments. If payment is not received by the plan due date, the account will be considered in default. If this account remains in default past the end of the semester, it may be referred to a collection agency. All collection costs and fees are to be paid by the student including attorney fees, court costs, and any other related costs. If tuition is not paid in full by the end of a semester, the student will not be allowed to enroll for the following semester. *The due date each month will be based on the Census Date, and payment will be due the same date each month.
