Credit and Debit Card Processing Tips:

  • It is recommended to clear your cache before attempting to process a payment.  While in your browser, press Ctrl + Shift + Delete simultaneously on the keyboard.
  • As a protective measure to help limit fraud, your bank may have a daily spending limit or per-transaction limit policy.  In order to prevent your payment from being declined, please contact your bank prior to making payment.  Many banks will temporarily raise the threshold for a planned transaction.
  • If you are having trouble processing the payment and do not receive a payment confirmation, please allow 24 hours before attempting to process another transaction.  For assistance, please email or call 501-686-6128.

By Mail:  If you pay by mail, please do not send cash.  Make checks/money orders payable to UAMS.  Write your Student ID Number on all payments.  If the name on the check is different from the student’s name, please write the student’s name on the check.  Mail payments to:

Student Financial Services, Slot 758
4301 West Markham
Little Rock, AR 72205

Your cancelled check will serve as your receipt.  Checks must be for the exact amount of tuition and fees.

In Person:  Please visit our office located in the ADMIN WEST BUILDING, FIRST FLOOR, ROOM 1.106.  You may submit cash, checks or certified funds; however, cash payments in excess of $100 will be directed to the Treasurer’s Office.  If you are paying with check/money order, please be sure to write your Student ID Number on all payments.

Drop Box:  If you are paying with check/money order, you may place your payment in the STUDENT FINANCIAL SERVICES DROP BOX located in the hall by our office in the ADMIN WEST BUILDING, FIRST FLOOR, ROOM 1.106.  Please be sure to write your Student ID Number on all payments.  Do not put cash in the drop box.

Payment Plans:  Payment plans are available during the fall and spring terms only with the exception of the Physician Assistant Program which starts in the summer term.  Students with an account balance of $500-$25,000 may be eligible to pay tuition, fees and housing charges for the current semester by installment payments.  This includes any remaining balances after Financial Aid has been applied.  The university charges a non-refundable service fee of $35 for administering this service.  The deadline to enroll in a payment plan is 30 days from the first day of class.

A late payment plan fee of $25.00 will be applied to your account each time an installment is not paid by the due date.  Failure to pay two consecutive payments by the due date will result in an automatic termination and the outstanding balance will be due immediately.

The installment schedule is based on your current eligible charges but typically consists of 4 installments.  Your installment amounts may increase or decrease as eligible charges are added or removed from your account.  To enroll in a payment plan, log in to the GUS student portal at, under the My Finances section, click on Account Inquiry > Account Services tab > Enroll in Payment Plan tab.
