 Payment Policies


Terms of Payment

Per the University of Mount Olive Catalog: All tuition and fees for the entire semester are due prior to the start of class. Any account not paid as specified may be charged at the interest rate of 12% per annum on any unpaid balance. Situations that deserve special consideration should be discussed with the Business Office or the location Financial Counselor, prior to the first day of class.

Students with a remaining balance after considering financial aid and loans must pay that balance prior to the start of class or set up a payment plan with the Business Office that will have the account paid by the end of the semester. Payment plans will automatically draft the applicable student (parent or guardian) bank account each month.  To register for this payment plan please click on "Tuition Payment Plan" under Quick Links on the left had side of the page.​​​

 Student Statements

The University of Mount Olive only uses electronic statements that are posted to the student's Self-Service Account monthly to inform them of any balance owed to the college. It is the student's responsibility to check their Self-Service and stay aware of any Stops or Balances they have on their account.

All Non-Traditional, Seymour Johnson, and Online Program students who clean drop their course on/before the Friday of their first week of class will receive a tuition credit in the full amount of the tuition that was charged.

Refunds for traditional students as a result of withdrawing from school will be calculated based on the date of withdrawal in the semester.  Meal charges will be prorated based on the withdrawal date.  Room charges are nonrefundable after the semester drop-add date unless the student completely separates from the university.

 1098-T Tax Form

The 1098-T is an informational form letting you know about the reporting that is sent by the University of Mount Olive to the IRS each January for the prior calendar year. The University of Mount Olive reports total amounts billed for qualified tuition and related expenses less any related reductions in charges, total of all scholarships or grants administered and processed, but not cash payments for each calendar year which meet IRS reporting requirements.

The site provides useful information on the taxpayer relief Act of 1997, which provides education tax incentives for eligible taxpayers. These benefits, called the Hope Scholarship Credit and Lifetime Learning Credit, allow taxpayers to reduce their federal income tax based upon qualified tuition and fees paid, assuming the taxpayer meets all Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 requirements.
