To ensure resources are available for instruction, students must pay their required tuition & fees prior to the start of classes. Students who do not conform to UVI's Tuition & Fees Payment Policy will be regarded as not enrolled and will be debarred from attending classes, residing on campus, and using services provided to students at the University.

In the event a student covered by one of these payment plans withdraws, or otherwise leaves UVI, the student may withdraw from the plan. If the student withdraws during a term, the refund for that term will be calculated in accordance with the University's regular refund policy. If a prepayment is not fully utilized as a result of early graduation or transfer credits, a refund will be determined as above on a probated basis at the time of the student's graduation.
