  • I have a Hold on my account, what can I do?

    Students whose accounts are not paid in full by the payment deadline will have accounts receivable (AR) holds placed on their account and will not receive transcripts, diplomas and are not permitted to register for additional classes until their past due balance is paid in full. 

    Holds may also be placed on your account due to parking citations, health center charges or library fines. 

    Memo (AM) holds, are for internal use and may exist on your account but do not affect transcripts or registration. 

    Generally, AR holds will be automatically released 24 hours after account is paid in full. Holds will be released on accounts paid in full by check/webcheck 7-10 business days after payment is received in order to allow time for the check to clear. All other holds are lifted manually.

    Please contact collections at 786-1440 if you have questions regarding your account hold.

    Accounts Receivable approval is not required for you to Drop or Withdraw from your course. You can drop or withdraw by completing the Student Initiated Drop Form online here. Please note, depending on the date,  you might not recieve refund for the course you are dropping. Please see the UAA Dates and Deadlines page for refund deadlines.

  • I'm a UA Faculty or Staff Member, can I set up payroll deduction?

  • How do the PFD garnishments work? 

    If you have a delinquent account, your Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) may be garnished under Alaska Statute 14.40.251 and Alaska Statute 43.23.073.

    If your account is sent for garnishment, additional details and instructions to appeal the process will be mailed to you.

    If you believe you owe a balance in error, you should promptly file for an exception

  • Oops, I bounced a check I paid to UAA, what now? 

    Checks returned due to insufficient funds or a stop pay will be charged back to your student account.

    A $30 non-refundable processing fee will be charged for all returned checks and your account will be put on hold. In order to release the hold your account must be paid in the amount of the original check in addition to the returned check fee. The university reserves the right to refuse payment by check.
