Important Information Regarding Student eBills

Important Information Regarding Student eBills

eBill Information

As part of the university’s green initiative, all student bills are electronic.

  • Students will receive an email to their university email account ( informing them that a bill has been generated and is ready for their review.
  • Bills are generally available late July for the Fall semester and early January for the Spring semester.
  • Students will log into their SiS student center, scroll and click on Financial Center then select the “View all Invoices” link.
    • Select the bill that you wish to view.
    • Note the due date of the bill. Unpaid balances may result in an assessment of a Late Fee and the placing of a hold on your account that will prevent you from registering for a future semester.

Undergraduate tuition and fee charges are based on full-time status (12 or more credits).

  • Once the add/drop period is over, students enrolled in less than full time (part-time) will have their charges automatically prorated to reflect the cost for the number of credits for which they are registered.
  • Undergraduate students that register for a course with the Division of Graduate, Online & Professional Studies will be charged that Division's tuition and fees in addition to the Undergraduate tuition and fees.

Graduate and Division of Graduate, Online & Professional Studies tuition and fees are based on actual course enrollment.

Financial Aid Disbursements

Financial aid disbursements are made directly to the student’s account (except in the case of student employment).

  • Disbursements are made after the add/drop period of each semester once enrolled, residency, grade level and housing are confirmed and all program requirements have been met (i.e. loan entrance counseling, promissory notes, etc.).

Book Vouchers

Students whose financial aid is in excess of their student invoice by $50 or more will be issued a book voucher.

Student Health Insurance

Massachusetts state law requires that all students be enrolled in a student health insurance program that meets the comparable benefits established by the state of Massachusetts. You may waive coverage if you have this coverage under a comparable benefit plan.


The Massachusetts Student Public Interest Research Group (MASSPIRG) is a statewide, student-directed, student-funded, nonpartisan advocacy organization working on environmental, consumer, higher education, voter registration, and hunger and homelessness issues. MASSPIRG student chapters across the state pool resources through a waivable fee each semester and hire professional staff to work with students on these issues. UMass Lowell students have voted to fund a MASSPIRG chapter on campus. Therefore, all students are assessed the $11 waivable charge each semester. Volunteer, leadership, and internship opportunities are available for students on campus.
