Electronic billing statements are generated at the beginning of each month to all accounts with outstanding balances. Students will receive an e-mail in their Marquette e-mail account notifying them that the e-bill is available to view in CheckMarq. It is the student's responsibility to view their e-bill and if necessary forward on to their bill payer.
A student's registration is not considered complete until all fees are paid, a student enrolls in the Marquette Monthly Payment Plan, or submits a billing authorization from an approved sponsor. Students whose accounts reflect that the payment has not been made, or that are otherwise delinquent will have a registration block, transcript block, and diploma block placed on their accounts. There will be a $100 fee for the removal of the block. Failure to pay any balance when due may result in the cancellation of a student's registration for the current academic term, referral of the account to a collection agency, legal action to collect any balance due, or any combination thereof. If the University must take legal action to collect any unpaid balance, the student will be responsible for all fees and costs incurred by the University to collect the unpaid balance. Students who do not intend to return to the university are responsible for dropping classes through the CheckMarq system and notifying their respective college office.
You have the right to expect that all members of our staff will do everything possible to assist you.
You have the right to expect to be kept informed. Marquette strives through its publications, correspondence, Web site, e-mail and other media to provide students and parents with updated information.
You have the right to question all information pertaining to our billing and payment information in accordance with the Wisconsin Consumer Protection Act.
You have the right to expect fair treatment. Marquette does not discriminate in any manner contrary to law or justice on the basis of race, color, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, disability, veteran status or national origin in its educational programs or activities, including employment and admissions. At the same time, Marquette cherishes its right and duty to seek and retain personnel who will make a positive contribution to its religious character, goals, and mission in order to enhance the Catholic, Jesuit tradition.
You are responsible for being informed of Marquette's payment policies by reading the payment policy found in the student bulletins and online on our FAQ page and all other pertinent information.
You are responsible for satisfying all financial obligations with the university before you will be allowed to register for a subsequent term or receive an official transcript or diploma from the Registrar.
It is the student's responsibility to keep updated on his/her account balance, financial aid information and maintain current valid address information.
If you think your bill is wrong, or if you need more information about a transaction on your bill, the student should e-mail us from their Marquette e-mail account at email@example.com as soon as possible. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we send you the first bill on which the error or problem appeared.
In your email, give us the following information:
Student's name, MUID and the dollar amount of the suspected error. Describe the error and explain, if you can, why you believe there is an error. If you need more information, describe the item you are unsure of.
You do not have to pay any amount in question while we are investigating, but you are still obligated to pay the parts of your bill that are not in question. While we investigate your question, we cannot report you as delinquent or take any action to collect the amount in question.
In addition to tuition, all full-time undergraduate students are assessed the following mandatory fees each term: the Student Activity Fee, the UPass fee and the Student Health Service fee. The Student Activity Fee is used by the student government to fund different events for students on campus. The UPass fee allows students to utilize the Milwaukee County Transit System throughout the term. The Student Health Service fee enables you to use the clinic on campus. This fee is not a form of health insurance. These fees are not optional.
Work study funds are not applied directly to a student's bursar account. These funds are issued to the student through their paycheck. A student may apply their Marquette paycheck toward their bursar account balance by applying it as a payment.
A student can check his/her bursar account online via CheckMarq and compare it to his/her financial aid award, which is also available in CheckMarq.
You will continue to receive monthly statements from our office even if you are on the payment plan. You may use them to monitor any changes in the student's account balance and to monitor our receipt of your MMPP/TuitionPay payments. New charges on a student's account will not result in an automatic contract adjustment. These charges are due to the school by the billing due date.
A full-time undergraduate student is charged a flat rate of tuition. Changes will only occur if you drop below 12 credits prior to the end of the tuition adjustment period. The amount of change is based on the withdrawal schedule. Please be aware that dropping below 12 credits may also impact your financial aid.

An additional $185 per credit hour is assessed for students taking more than 18 credit hours (19 credit hours for the College of Engineering and the College of Business).

Registration and transcript holds are only removed when the account is paid in full.
By filling out a verification of enrollment/tuition form. The form can also be found on the Marquette Central Web site under Forms-Academic. The request must be forwarded to Marquette Central.
There are no payment plans available for the summer. Payment is due in full before the start of class(es). If payment is not made by the specified due date, the account will be assessed a 1 percent late fee on a monthly basis on the unpaid balance.
No. Financial aid is term-specific, meaning fall term financial aid can only be used to pay fall term charges.
Federal financial aid (i.e., Stafford and Parent PLUS loans) pays in two disbursements in the summer term due to federal regulation. The first disbursement is about a week before the start of classes, and the second disbursement will occur at the mid-point of the summer term (approximately mid-July for most students).
Your payment is due to TMS by the fifth of each month. The payment will be sent to Marquette University and posted to your bursar account the Friday of the following week.
Yes, you may still enroll. You will owe the $35 semester enrollment fee, plus any payments that have passed.
Please feel free to contact a bursar account representative at any time during business hours (8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. CT Monday-Friday) with your budgeting questions.
In addition, a bursar representative will be available at the freshmen preview service fair to assist incoming freshmen with their contracts.
Yes, you may certainly adjust your payments. Please contact TMS directly — (888) 267-3053 — to request that your contract be reduced. TMS will then verify with a Marquette administrator that your new budget is correct. Provided the adjustment has been approved by Marquette, your contract will be adjusted and the new amount will be reflected in next month's TMS bill. (For example, if you have already received the September bill, you still owe the amount due on that bill. Your contract will then be adjusted for the remaining three months.)
You will receive a monthly bill from TMS. You may pay by check, money order or credit card by mail, phone or online. Automatic monthly payments may be made right from your checking or statement savings account. Please note that credit card payments will be charged an additional convenience fee.
If you fail to make two monthly payments in a row, TMS terminates your contract.
Yes, you may reactivate your terminated contract. You will, however, be charged a reactivation fee of $25.
You will need to budget without your financial aid. When you do receive notification of your aid package, you may decrease your contract to reflect the amount of your aid.
