Payment Plans

Set up auto-drafts, and automatically pay your bill in installments.

We understand that life's busy. That's why we've made it quick and easy to set up payment plans at CU Denver. And once your plan is set up, funds will automatically draft - so you don't need to think about your bill again! To enroll:

  • Log into UCDAccess
  • Select Student Billing
  • Select Pay Your Bill
  • Select the Payment Plan menu option in QuikPAY

​Sign up for 2, 3 or 4 payments to automatically draft on the 20th of each month. If the 2​0th falls on a weekend, then your payment will be processed the following business day. Making a one-time payment before that date does not stop the automatic withdrawal from happening. Students who sign up for a payment plan prior to their billing due date will avoid late and service charges.

Please note, you do not need to make payments; funds will be automatically withdrawn from the bank account/credit card you specify.

Payment Methods

Cost to Participate

  • $35 nonrefundable enrollment fee per semester
  • $30 returned payment fee if a payment is returned


The payment plan may be rebalanced on the payment processing date, first business day prior to your payment processing date and the 1st  of each month to match your student account balance. The rebalancing will automatically occur on those dates if your payment plan amount is being adjusted down. However, if the amount has increased and you want to include the new charges in the payment plan, you will be required to log in to your QuikPAY payment plan account to rebalance.

Other Terms

  • The amounts that will be automatically withdrawn from your bank account or credit/debit card may change due to rebalancing resulting from changes to your account such as adding or dropping classes, authorizing the College Opportunity Fund stipend (applies to in-state undergraduates only), tuition waivers, or financial aid.
  • Students sign up in QuikPAY through UCDAccess.  Parents, once they are authorized as payers, can sign up in QuikPAY.
  • If the student enrolls in the payment plan, the student is the owner of the plan and can choose to share Payment Plan email notifications with any (or all) of their Authorized Payers.
  • If the Authorized Payer enrolls in the payment plan, the Authorized Payer is the owner of the plan and will receive Payment Plan emails as well as the student.
  • You are not eligible for the payment plan if you owe a past due debt.
