Paying your tuition fees in instalments
Instalment contracts will be available to students paying fees in excess of £100. Payment may be made by Direct Debit or by Credit Card.
For students studying from September 2010 there will be four instalments, payable on or about the first day of the month in November, December, February and April.
For students commencing study in January, instalment dates will be on or about the first day of the month in March, April, May and July.
Why should I pay by Direct Debit?
It is easier for you. Once set up, LJMU will do all the work. All you have to do is to ensure sufficient funds are available. Paying by Direct Debit is the most cost effective way for JMU to collect fees.
How do I pay by Direct Debit?
By accessing the on-line payment system and inputting your bank or building society details. Click here to access the On-line Payment system.
What happens after completing Direct Debit Instructions?
A letter of 'Advance Notice' and an email will be sent out informing you of the first date that your Direct Debit payment will be required from your bank. This will be at least two weeks before the instalment payment date agreed on the instalment contract. Should there be any amendments to the dates or amounts to be paid, LJMU will notify you ten working days in advance of your account being debited.
What happens if LJMU makes a mistake?
If an error has been made by the University you will be fully reimbursed immediately including payment of any bank charges that may have been incurred.
If I want to cancel my Direct Debit, what do I do?
If you wish to cancel your Direct Debit at any time please inform your bank or building society in writing. You must also inform LJMU or we will assume you have deliberately defaulted on your obligation to the University and we will then take action to recover any debt. Please inform staff in your local Student Support Zones of any changes to your payment plans.
What if I need more information?
If you have any further questions, please contact staff in your Student Support Zone
Non-payment of Tuition Fees
The University reserves the right to impose sanctions against students who persistently refuse to pay fees, as agreed at enrolment. Such sanctions may include the withdrawal of library lending facilities, removal of access to the ICT network, the withholding of mark transcripts, and the suspension of the students' registration.
Any student who has a debt to the university at the end of the academic year, will not be permitted to register for the next year of their programme of study, until either the debt has been cleared or a satisfatory repayment plan has been agreed.
Students with debts at the end of programme of study will not be allowed to attend the graduation ceremony. The University will not issue certificates to any student who continues to be in debt to the institution at the end of their programme. In extreme cases the University will pursue outstanding debts via a debt collection agency and through the courts.
