Financial Responsibility

Registration, when accepted by the University of the Pacific, constitutes a financial agreement between the student and the University. Registration is considered complete when the bill has been settled. Tuition, fees and other charges the student incurs including but not limited to, housing, meal plans, and bookstore charges are added to the student account and are considered a loan for an educational benefit.

Student Financial Responsibility Agreement Acknowledgements – Your agreement to the terms and conditions contained herein are required for your registration at the University of the Pacific.

I acknowledge that when I register for any courses with the University of the Pacific or receive services or purchase goods, I am responsible for all “charges” as they are posted to my account but are not limited to tuition, fees, room and board, meal plans, Laptop Agreement, bookstore charges and library fees. I further understand and agree that my registration and acceptance of these terms constitutes a promissory note agreement (i.e., a financial obligation in the form of an educational loan as defined by the U.S. Bankruptcy Code at 11 U.S.C. § 523 (a) (8) in which the University of the Pacific is providing me educational services, deferring some or all of my payment obligation for those services, and I promise to pay for all assessed tuition, fees, and other associated costs by the published or assigned due date.

I understand and agree that if I fail to satisfy my financial obligation to the University of the Pacific, I will receive no benefits from the University of the Pacific until my account is brought current. The benefits which may be terminated include but are not limited to, course registration, grades and diplomas. Any outstanding charges, due on your student account will be transferred to a Student Note with the Student Loan Department, of the University of the Pacific for servicing. This Student Note Loan balance is subject to agency collection fees, which may be based on a percentage, with a maximum of 33% of debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees we incur in such collection efforts after internal collections efforts have failed to result in the full payment of my account. Furthermore I agree to reimburse the University of the Pacific for any legal fees or costs associated with any bankruptcy.

As required by law, you are hereby notified that a negative credit report reflecting on your credit record may be submitted to a credit reporting agency if you fail to fulfill the terms of your financial obligations to the University of the Pacific. Failure to make payments on time will result in loss of housing, suspension of meal plans, and termination of enrolled student status and will result in being declined future payment plan options with the University of the Pacific. It is your responsibility to ensure that all financial aid is properly credited to your account. The University of the Pacific has the right to increase their fees and charges as needed. Registration constitutes my agreement to all the forgoing terms and conditions.

I understand and agree that if I drop enrollment in some or all of the classes or decide to withdraw from the University, I must complete and submit all required online or hard-copy documentation by the applicable deadlines listed at www.pacific.edu. I acknowledge that lack of class attendance does not constitute an official drop or withdrawal, and I will still be responsible for payment of my tuition and fees.

If some, or all, of my financial aid is revoked because I dropped or failed to attend class, I agree to repay all aid that was disbursed to my account and resulted in a credit balance that was refunded to me.

A financial hold will be placed on my account whenever charges are not paid by the due date, and late fees will be assessed. If my account balance becomes delinquent and a hold is placed on my account, it will prevent enrollment in classes. Additionally, I cannot be issued a diploma until my account balance is paid in full or brought into a current status. At the discretion of the University, I may be administratively dropped from my courses for nonpayment.

As a material part of this agreement, I understand and agree, in order for the University of the Pacific to manage my account or to collect any amounts I may owe, the University of the Pacific may contact me at my current, and any future, home phone number(s), work phone number(s), cellular phone number(s), email(s), address(es), or wireless device(s) regarding my delinquent student account, which may result in additional charges to me. Note that the University will continue to communicate with you at your school email address unless you notify the University that you no longer use the school email address or provide the University with a different email address. Methods of contact may include, text messages, voice messages and/or use of an automatic dialing device, as applicable. I understand that email communications or voicemail messages may disclose financial information if you give permission for someone to access your email or voicemail or if you access or disclose the contents of an email or voicemail in the presence of a third party. I have read this disclosure and despite the possibility of third party disclosures, I agree that the University of the Pacific and its appointed agents may contact me as described above.

I will immediately communicate any change of my legal name, SSN/TIN, address, phone number, email and citizenship/visa, or other contact information, to the University of the Pacific and keep my student account information up to date, per the instructions found at www.pacific.edu or by contacting the Student Loans office at 209-946-2446. If I have not updated my contact information as required, I am aware that communications may be sent to the wrong address.

If I wish to allow the University of the Pacific to communicate with my parents or a third party about my personal information, I must complete the appropriate FERPA forms, which can be found at www.insidepacific.edu. The University of the Pacific may disclose personal information to servicing agencies and other agents for the purpose of conducting university business while maintaining data security as required by law.

I consent to have any financial credits apply to any miscellaneous campus fees assessed to my billing account. I understand that my payment obligation remains whether or not I view my billing statement, and whether or not my account is being paid by me or someone else.

I understand that the University of the Pacific uses electronic notification of outstanding debts and due dates as its official billing method, and therefore I am responsible for viewing and paying outstanding debts by their scheduled due date. I further understand that failure to review my account for due dates does not constitute a valid reason for not paying my debts on time.

I consent to electronic delivery of IRS Form 1098-T, which is necessary to obtain a tax credit, exclusively online at www.1098t.com. I understand that I can withdraw consent by contacting the appropriate office below to identify the paper process by which to request paper 1098-Ts.

I will receive a written confirmation of my request when completed. After giving consent, I can obtain a paper copy of Form 1098-T by requesting in person at Student Business Services. I understand that I only need to consent once for current and future years. Not consenting or withdrawing consent to electronic delivery will result in having the 1098-T Form go through the postal service to an address on file, which I must keep up to date. If my e-mail address or mailing address is not current, I may not receive my Form 1098-T.

If I do not waive student health insurance, I consent to electronic delivery of the IRS Form 1095-B, which is necessary to avoid a health care tax penalty, to my email address on file. I understand that I can withdraw consent by contacting the student health insurance office to identify the paper process by which to request a paper 1095-B. I understand that I only need to consent once for current and future years. Not consenting or withdrawing consent will result in having the 1095-B Form go through the postal service to an address on file which I must keep up to date. If my e-mail address or mailing address is not current, I may not receive my 1095-B form.

In addition, University of the Pacific has the authority to transition to remote or online learning and operations and to continue charging the same tuition and fees without partial or total refund, unless a fee pertains specifically to a service that is terminated (e.g., on-campus parking, housing, etc.). The transition to remote or online learning and operations may be due to a variety of force majeure reasons (e.g., public health orders). Similarly, the tuition and fee obligations will remain the same and not subject to any refund, if, for any reason, a student is permitted by University of the Pacific to complete a term remotely or in combination of remote and in-person instruction.

I have read, understand, and consent to the terms of this agreement, as applicable, and that I have an opportunity to ask any questions I may have by contacting Student Accounts Office at 209-946-2517.

In order to receive a bill that includes tuition and fees prior to the payment deadline, you must early register for courses. Please note that students with delinquent accounts are not permitted to register. It is the students’ responsibility to pay by the deadline, regardless of receiving a statement. Students can obtain their current account balance by logging into insidePacific. The University sends monthly electronic billing statements. Students receive a monthly email notifying them that their statement is ready for viewing. This statement notification email is also sent to any Authorized Users that the student establishes. Authorized Users do not have access to any other student information through this site. The billing statement can be printed from the computers located in the lobby of the Finance Center or by a request to the Student Accounts Office.

All electronic correspondence is sent to the student’s u.pacific.edu email address.

A dispute of any charge on your student account must be submitted in writing to the Student Accounts Office within sixty days from the date of billing. If you fail to comply within the sixty day time period, you may forfeit your rights to dispute the charge in the future.

Payment of Bills

Tuition, fees, and room and board, if applicable, are due in full by the payment deadline. The payment deadlines are August 1st for the fall semester and January 1st for the spring semester for general students. Payment deadline information for other programs is available online on the Student Business Services website located at go.pacific.edu/studentaccounts. Any outstanding balances from prior semesters must be paid in full as well as the current semester payment, by the deadline. Students who have not yet registered can estimate their payment amount by utilizing the Calculation Worksheets available at the Student Business Services website. Payments for the intended enrollment must be made by the deadline, even if the student has not completed their course registration. Late fees will be assessed for payments received after the deadline. Failure to complete financial obligations can result in the cancellation of registration.

University of the Pacific offers a payment plan which allows a student account to be paid in monthly installments each semester. The payment plan requires a down payment (1st payment) at the time of enrollment and non-refundable deferment fee applied to the first installment. Deferment fees are as follows: 3-month payment plan $25 deferment fee, 4-month payment plan $75 deferment fee and 5-month payment plan $75 deferment fee. Payment Plans are not applicable for Summer Sessions except for Professional Pharmacy/Health Sciences Programs. Enrollment for the payment plan MUST be completed online.  

International students may not utilize the monthly payment plan. Payment in full is required by the payment deadline.

It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all financial aid is properly credited to his/her account.

Payments can be made by cash, paper check, money order, cashiers check, and electronic checks. Payments must be received by the deadline; postmarks are not acceptable. Payments by check or cash can be made in person at the Cashiers Office, located in the Finance Center. If making payment by mail, please send check or money order to the attention of Student Accounts. Please include the student’s university identification number or send a copy of the statement, which can be downloaded and printed, in order to ensure proper payment application.

Students who have not paid in full, completed all financial aid requirements and/or enrolled in the monthly payment plan by the payment deadline, are assessed a $150 late payment fee. A late fee of $50 is assessed for any payments made after the due date.

Failure to make payments as agreed can result in the University of the Pacific canceling all financial arrangements, a student’s registration, and denying all University services.

Any payment on the student account that is returned by a financial institution for any reason can lead to cancellation of registration. If registration is cancelled for the semester, the student will not receive credit for those courses. A returned payment fee of $25 is assessed for the first returned payment. Any payment returned subsequently is assessed a $35 returned payment fee. After two (2) returned payments, the University can suspend both electronic and paper check writing privileges and institute collection and/or legal actions against the payer. The student’s account is then placed on a finance hold thus preventing the student from receiving any services from the University.

The University requires that all accounts be paid in full by the end of the semester. Any account that remains delinquent is transferred to the Student Loan Department for servicing. Once the account is transferred, the Student Account Note or balance is subject but not limited to, principal, interest, late charges, collection fees, credit bureau reporting, and any legal fees associated with the collection of the debt. In accordance with California state law, all unpaid balances accrue 10% interest, per annum, on the balance remaining on the date of transfer. Students are responsible for all fees associated in the collection of the debt. A student with a balance due to the University is not allowed any benefits from the University including but not limited to, registration for courses, copies of diplomas, and utilization of University housing and meals, until the balance is paid in full. In addition, all institutional loans or other loans guaranteed by the Federal Government must be in good (current) standing and exit interviews completed prior to the release of diploma or transcripts.

If payments exceed charges on a student account, the account is said to have a credit balance. Credit balances are to be returned to the student based upon the method of payment. The student account is not to be used as a means for cash advances or payments to third parties. Upon request, credit balances resulting from cash payments will be refunded to the student. A credit balance that results from a check payment is refunded after 14 business days. Credit balances that result from refundable student loans and scholarships are also refunded upon request. All financial aid must be disbursed on the student account before a refund is processed. Refunds are issued on a weekly basis.

Effective August 1, 2021, any student using CH31 (Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment benefits) or CH33 (Post-9/11 G.I. Bill) is protected from any penalties imposed by our University while waiting for the VA to make tuition and fee payments.

Refund of Tuition and Fees

The following refund schedule pertains only to tuition charges and is applicable when the student drops below full time enrollment or officially withdraws from the University. Students who intend to withdraw must notify the Office of the Registrar.

Refunds are based upon a percentage of calendar days. Calendar days of a semester may vary from semester to semester. For exact dates, please refer to the Student Accounts website or contact their office.

Notification and withdrawal before classes begin – No charge.

First day of classes until last day to add – $150 clerical charge.

After 50% of calendar days no refund, 100% penalty.

Fees are non-refundable after the last day to add courses for the semester.

Housing and meal plan charges are refunded on a prorated basis as determined by the Office of Residential Life & Housing. Refunds are based upon per diem charges and actual approved check out date.

If the student reducing units or withdrawing from the University is a financial aid recipient, the student’s financial aid award may be adjusted according to federal and state regulations and University policy. If the student has received more federal financial aid dollars than earned, the unearned aid must be returned to the federal financial aid program or programs from which it was paid. The funds remaining on the student account after federal financial aid is returned might not cover all the charges on the account. Any remaining balance is owed to the University and is due and payable immediately. The Financial Aid Office can provide additional information related to changes in financial aid awards.

Tuition and Fees on this page are for the following professional programs on the San Francisco campus.

Professional

Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry

All information applies to the DDS Program. Not all information applies to the IDS, Certificate or Dental Graduate Programs. For more information, contact your program.

University of the Pacific is a private institution with tuition and fees providing about two-thirds of the revenue necessary for the three-year doctoral program. Gifts from alumni, parents and regents, income from endowments, funds from private agencies and other revenue help meet program costs, but inflation and other factors may require annual increases in tuition and fees to provide necessary program revenue.

Because we offer one of the nation’s only dental programs that can be completed in three calendar years, our dental students pay tuition for three years as opposed to four years at most other dental schools.

Tuition

Tuition for the 2022-2023 academic year for the DDS and IDS predoctoral programs and for the residency programs in orthodontics and endodontology programs is estimated to be $122,344. The estimated annual fees for the Advanced Education in General Dentistry program are $3,503.00.

The fee will be applied to first quarter tuition upon matriculation to the University of the Pacific. First quarter tuition is due and payable before matriculation day. Subsequent payment of tuition is due by the first day of each quarter and is required for registration and continued enrollment.

Tuition Refund

Withdrawal: School policy provides that in response to written notice of withdrawal by a student or by an applicant, tuition credit shall be allocated as follows:

    • 15th through 25th day: 40% credit
    • 26th through 35th day: 20% credit

Dismissal: Upon dismissal for reasons other than misconduct, tuition credit is allocated according to the refund schedule above. When a dismissed student is readmitted, full tuition must be paid for each quarter repeated, or part thereof.

Extended Program

A student who has not fully demonstrated competency to the faculty in all clinical disciplines by the end of the final quarter of the program will be extended beyond graduation. An extended student is not charged tuition for one quarter. Tuition for subsequent quarter(s) or part(s) thereof is charged at 85% of the current rate. In every quarter of the extension, an extended student pays current rates for mandatory health and disability insurance. Upon notification to the dean that performance meets graduation standards, an extended student receives tuition credit of 10% for each full week of instruction remaining in the quarter.

Readmission and Repeat

Repeat students are charged 85% of the current tuition for any quarter repeated and 100% of the current rate thereafter. A student must pay any outstanding account balance to be eligible for readmission or to repeat all or part of an academic year.

Diplomas

A diploma will not be issued until a student's account with the University is paid in full and in the judgment of the school all other requirements have been satisfied. If a diploma is held for financial reasons only, the original graduation date is retained on the record.

Store Refund Policy

A full refund is provided on non-kit items returned within five school days of the date of purchase and within University policy.

Student Accounts

Student accounts are provided for payment of fees and student store charges. This privilege may be restricted for cause.

Student accounts are billed on a monthly basis and are due and payable prior to the next billing date to avoid a late fee.

Students who fail to make payments on accounts in a timely fashion and as billed are subject to suspension from the academic program without further action or procedures. In addition, a student will not be deemed to have met graduation requirements, nor will a diploma be issued, until a student's account with the university is paid in full.

Effective August 1, 2019, any student using CH31 (Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment benefits) or CH33 (Post-9/11 G.I. Bill) is protected from any penalties imposed by our University while waiting for the VA to make tuition and fee payments.

Business Office

The business office manages student accounts, including posting of all charges; collecting payments; and issuing reimbursements.

Patient Accounts

The student is responsible for financial management of assigned comprehensive care patients. This responsibility includes charging correct fees for procedures authorized. Students will not receive credit for a procedure if financial arrangements have not been made prior to initiating care.

Foreign Students

In order to comply with regulations of the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service, the University of the Pacific requires applicants who are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States to submit a detailed certification of finances showing sufficient financial resources for study at the university. Other special information and instructions regarding the admission of foreign students will be provided upon request.
