Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I check my student financial account in ASSIST?
Students are advised to check their ASSIST account daily (www.assist.utpa.edu) and make immediate payment arrangements for any charges due. Student financial accounts are dynamic and subject to change due to adding classes, adjustments in financial aid, parking, housing, meal plans, etc.
What happens if I do not submit my payment by the deadline?
If payment is not received in our office or posted online by close of business on the published due date, students will risk having their classes canceled.
What should I do if I have been dropped for Non-Payment?
If you are attending a Fall or Spring Semester you have 3 class days after the semester starts to re-enroll online. If you are attending Summer I and Summer II Semester you have only one class day after the semester starts to re-enroll online.
