Year 1 –3 Students
The University introduced new segments of its semesterisation system in the Academic Year 2009/10 — arrangements that allow Year 1,2, and 3 students to select modules and class times online using UTech’s webpage www.utechjamaica.edu.jm . The tuition fee is based on modules students will undertake during the academic year, along with examinations / assessment fees, which should be paid per semester. Ancillary fees are paid yearly.
The tuition fee that you pay as a Year 1 or 2 or 3 student is calculated on a per credit basis, this is also based on the total number of credits that you will undertake in a given academic year. The cost per credit differs across Faculties/Schools and for each programme, this is also applicable to the University General Education modules. Therefore it is important that each student ascertain the cost per credit rate assigned to their faculty.
PROCEDURES APPLICABLE TO YEAR 1, 2, 3 STUDENTS for generating their invoices are as follows:
- Select modules to be pursued at the beginning of each semester (semester 1, semester 2 and semester 3)
- Submit and Confirm modules then Print invoice for modules selected
- Pay in full at any location as outlined below
- Await financial clearance by monitoring the in tray on the student portal, if modules are not confirmed and full payment is not received financial clearance will not be granted.
- If financial clearance (FC) is granted, follow the steps contained within the FC message to complete enrolment steps online
Please note the financial clearance process is an automated feature and will only be granted when the full payment has been received as per the student invoice.
Your commitment fee paid to secure your place at UTech represents your ancillary fee (applicable to year 1 students only), and should be subtracted from your invoice viewed online, and pay the difference. Students will not be permitted to make part payment on modules selected as per semester, instead you will be required to select modules based on your affordability and pay full fee on registration. Part payment will not be allowed.
Years 4–5 Students
Year 4-5 students will continue to benefit from the Flexible Payment Plan for the academic year 2011/12. The conditions that apply are detailed on the fee breakdown generated by the student on the student portal. The payment options applicable are as follows:
Option A: “Payment in full” (at the beginning of a course of study)
This represents the lowest cost to the student. Fees are paid in full at the start of each year of the Course of Study.
Option B: “Payment by Semester”
This Option requires that payments are made prior to the start of each semester and is more costly than Option A. This option is for persons who are unable to pay the full fees up front. This is a binding agreement that will allow you to pay the full cost of the programme as per the due date outlined on the student invoice. This payment option is not dependent on the courses taken per semester.
Therefore, students are urged to review the options available and decide on the most suitable plan, as the option will not change once registration, and the student is liable to the fees. (The names of the students who fail to comply with their payment agreement as per registration will be published and sent to an external debt collector.)
The last payment plan viewed online will be the plan that will be reflected on your account, hence student will be liable to fee stated on the system and their account.
Penalties for Non-Compliance
A Student will be deemed to be in arrears if:
- Fees from previous years are unpaid (not normally be allowed to register)
- An expected payment is not received on or before the due date, or
- Any late fees or miscellaneous fees are unpaid.
- Students who are in arrears will not be afforded normal student privileges, including access to the library.
- Students who are in arrears will be deregistered.
- Individuals attending class who have not registered, or who have been deregistered, are not students.
- Students whose payments are late will be charged a late fee.
- Delinquent persons will not be eligible for Option B for the remainder of the duration of their course of study. (Fees must, therefore, be paid in full upon registration)
Students who have been deregistered are liable for the amount in arrears and no amounts will be refunded.
Effective August 2009 students will not be required to visit the campus for “Financial Clearance”. The Students Receivable Unit, in conjunction with the Enterprise Application Systems (EAS) Department, will be downloading data as per payment agencies and uploading information to students’ accounts in accordance with payment records received from each agency to facilitate automated financial clearance for each student. Students should refer to the online Registration Guide, which gives the steps and procedures for completing all steps for enrolment.
You will receive messages to your student portal, as well as text messages, to inform students of their registration status. Students should monitor their student portal ‘In tray’ for messages regarding their financial clearance. Students are urged to take note of the details of the message and follow the recommended actions. If after two (2) clear working days following your fee payment you have not received financial clearance by a message in your ‘In tray’, you may send an email to our attention at Students Receivables: email@example.com.
The notification message you will receive in your in tray may include;

Fee Refund Policy – (in cases of Withdrawal/ Leave of Absence)
The University of Technology, Jamaica projects expenses for the provision of services to students prior to the beginning of each programme, based on the number of students who have indicated their intention to enrol. Normally, these expenses are not subject to change at short notice. Students who cancel their enrolment prior to the beginning of the programme or withdraw during the Semester/
Summer Session may deprive others of the opportunity to gain entry for the particular Year/Summer Session or may create vacancies that cannot be filled.
If a student needs to cancel his/her enrolment or withdraw from the University, he or she must give written notice to the Registrar’s Office. Informing a faculty member of non-attendance at classes, or withdrawal, does not constitute official notification or approval. Written approval from the Registrar is required in order for a refund to be considered under the University Refund Policy. Students desirous of withdrawing are required to complete a “Faculty Student Academic Affairs Committee Request” form and submit it to the Registrar Office.
Any student who withdraws from a programme without obtaining permission from the Academic Board will be deemed to have abandoned his/her studentship and will be subject to the University’s formal re-admission process. Fees outstanding for the year of withdrawal or leave of absence must be settled before readmission is granted. Any refund of fees will be in accordance with the Fee Refund Policy outlined herein. Requests for refunds outside of the stipulated schedule will not be entertained.
The date on which the withdrawal request is received at the Registrar’s Office will be used as the withdrawal date for computing any refund. Requests by mail will be dated according to the postmark.
The Finance and Business Services Office refunds tuition fees within six weeks, provided that all information and documents have been submitted. Refunds are based on the assessment of charges incurred, e.g., administrative fees, and not upon the amount paid. Refund payments are made by cheque in the name of the student, unless he or she directs otherwise.
A student who is expelled or suspended will not be entitled to any fee refund. Students who write to the University Registrar and are granted permission to withdraw from a programme or who are granted Leave of Absence, receive a refund of tuition and examination fees according to the Schedule on page 75.
