ADDITIONAL FEES:

UNITE SPECIAL FEE

UNITE Distributed Learning is a self-supporting office at the University of Minnesota. In order to operate, we must charge a UNITE Special Fee in addition to tuition and other University of Minnesota fees.

This fee covers administrative, technical and maintenance costs of running the program. This fee will be charged directly to students and appear on your University billing.

The fee is $100 per credit for A-F or S-N grading, and $100 per credit for audit students.

UNIVERSITY AND COLLEGE FEES

These are University and College fees common to students who enroll in courses through UNITE Distributed Learning, though there are other fees which may apply based on indidivual enrollment.

A more complete list of University and College fees may be found at https://onestop.umn.edu/finances/fees Image to indiate a link to a web page outside the UNITE web site, which opens in a new window..

Fee information listed is for 2017-18 academic year and is subject to change.

University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan
(http://shb.umn.edu/health-plans/shbp-home Image to indiate a link to a web page outside the UNITE web site, which opens in a new window.)
Beginning fall semester 2012, all students who are 1) admitted to a degree program, and 2) registered for six or more credits per semester (or three or more credits during summer term) that count toward the automatic assessment of the Student Services Fee, are required by the University of Minnesota to have health plan coverage. Students who meet both of these criteria are automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan.

Note that UNITE courses are EXCLUDED from the automatic assessment of the Student Services Fee (see criterion number 2, above).

If you are only enrolled in UNITE courses but want to be enrolled into the University-sponosored Student Health Benefit Plan, you need to voluntarily opt-in to the plan.

If you are enrolled in both UNITE and non-UNITE courses, you may be automatically enrolled into the University-sponosored Student Health Benefit Plan based on the non-UNITE courses.

The official policy (remember - UNITE courses are excluded because the Student Services fee is not assessed on UNITE courses) is that all Student Services Fee-paying University students will be automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan and billed a non refundable semester coverage fee.

To avoid being charged, students who have active health plan coverage that meets certain existing coverage requirements may request to waive the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan by 1) completing a waiver request and 2) providing proof of insurance.

Approved waivers will be valid for two years. If the credits for which they are registering meet the eligibility requirement and they DO NOT submit a waiver request by the posted deadline, they will be responsible for the cost of the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan.

College of Science and Engineering: Collegiate Fee
(listed under Collegiate Fees at https://onestop.umn.edu/finances/fees Image to indiate a link to a web page outside the UNITE web site, which opens in a new window.)
All CSE students will be charged the College of Science and Engineering: Collegiate Fee. The proceeds from the fee will be used to support the CSE Public Labs, standard instructional technology needs in all CSE units, and maintenance of robust student services for CSE students.

      • $330 - 6+ credits in a semester
      • $165 - fewer than 6 credits in a semester

PAYMENT

At the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, the UNITE office makes adjustments before the first bill is due. If you have questions please contact our office. We will not be able to make any changes after the last week of class. You are responsible for paying all fees by the University's deadlines, we can not waive any late fees if you do not pay by their dates.

Student Accounts Receivable Billing System for Tuition and Fees
The University of Minnesota uses electronic billing and payment of your student account bills (tuition, fees, housing, books, etc.). This means that paper bills will no longer exist for enrolled students.

The electronic billing and payment system will automatically send an e-mail notification to the student's University e-mail address when the bill is ready to be viewed online. Students will need their University Internet ID and password to login to the online payment system. Students will need to set up an authorized payer through the online Parent/Guest Access application to grant access for another person to view and pay their bill.

Accessing e-bill/e-pay on the Web
You and your guest can view and pay your University bill through the Online Billing & Payment section of the University's One Stop web site (https://onestop.umn.edu/finances/billing-and-payment Image to indiate a link to a web page outside the UNITE web site, which opens in a new window.). You can view the current bill plus any electronic bills created in the past. Bills have been redesigned so they are easier to read.

To use the e-bill/e-pay system, you will need to enter your University Internet ID and password. If you have not yet initiated your Internet account, you can initiate it on-line (https://www.umn.edu/initiate Image to indiate a link to a web page outside the UNITE web site, which opens in a new window.). If you have forgotten your password, have any problems logging on, or getting bumped off the system, contact the Technology Help line at 612-301-4357.

Paying by mail is still possible. You can print out a bill to pay by mail.
