Paying Your Tuition

Students will have to log in to LoboWeb to pay tuition with a credit or debit card. Checks will still be accepted when mailed to  4000 University Drive, Los Alamos, NM, 87544. Anyone wanting to pay COMPASS Test Fees, Enrollment Authorization Fees, or Transcript Fees with credit card must use the UNM-Los Alamos MarketPlace link on the UNM-LA homepage.

Students with financial aid: See the Financial Aid Coordinator

Service Charge: A service charge of 1.2% per month will be billed to all unpaid student accounts beginning one month after registration. Payments made to a student account with a credit or debit card will be assessed a 2.75% fee.

Tuition Installment Plan

Payment of tuition and fees may be deferred under the University’s Installment Plan, which requires a down payment and payment of a non-refundable set up fee. See LoboWeb-Make payments to set up a plan.

Third Party

If tuition, fees or books are being paid by a third party, the Cashier's Office must be in receipt of the student's approved billing authorization letter or award. To avoid late fees or disenrollment for non-payment, the authorization must be provided prior to enrollment cancellation.

Financial Responsibility

Not receiving a bill or statement of account from UNM Los Alamos does not relieve financial responsibility. It is the student's responsibility to monitor their payment balances either on LoboWeb or with the UNM-LA cashier. LoboWeb provides 24-hour access to financial accounts. View the Terms and Conditions of Financial Responsibility Agreement.
