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. Once your plan is set up, funds will automatically draft so you don't need to think about your bill again! To enroll, follow the steps:

Simple Steps to Enroll

  1. Login to UCDAccess portal
  2. Click on View and Pay Your Bill
  3. Click on Sign Up for a Payment Plan

Please note, that you do not need to make payments; funds will be automatically withdrawn from the bank account or debit/credit card you specify.

The payment plan system will not cancel or skip scheduled payments for any manual payments made outside of the payment plan installment agreement.

Payment Plan Information

  • ​​Sign up for one of our payment plan options to automatically draft on the 20th of each month.
  • If the 2​0th falls on a weekend, your payment will be processed the following business day.
  • If the payment fails to process on the 20th of the month the payment will be reattempted on the 1st of the following month. If this reattempt fails, the payment plan will be terminated.
  • Students who sign up for a payment plan before their billing due date will not be assessed late fines and service charges.
  • Making a one-time payment before that date does not stop the automatic withdrawal from happening. 

Please note, that funds will be automatically withdrawn from the bank account or credit card/debit card used at the time of payment plan enrollment. 

Please take care not to make changes to your payment plan or manually submit any payment on or before the payment plan deduction date. If manual payment is made before the system automated payment plan deduction the payment plan will be rebalanced and payment will still be processed on the payment plan deduction date.  This will cause you to be charged a greater amount than is due for your monthly installment agreement.

  • $30 returned payment fee if a payment is returned


The payment plan may be rebalanced on the payment processing date, the first business day before 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 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 e-mails as well as the student.
