Constitution Day

Higher education institutions around the United States honor the U.S. Constitution on Constitution Day, this year on Friday, September 16. So, just how important is the U.S. Constitution? Do you know how it was created? Who are the founding fathers? Can you imagine shaping an entire nation with your words and ideas?

The importance of the U.S. Constitution can’t be overstated. From its inception in 1789, the Constitution has served as the backbone of the laws that govern the United States of America. Find out more about the U.S. Constitution [link: www.constitutionfacts.com].

Important Dates

Avoid late fees and other potential consequences for missing payment deadlines. Be aware of the University's statement and billing due dates. Need to make a change to your enrollment? Stay on top of the University's cancel/add and refund deadlines.

Payment plan available now

The payment plan (formerly "installment plan") for tuition and fees is available starting September 1. You must enroll in a payment plan each semester (and for each campus) you would like to use it; it will not be automatically applied. View step-by-step instructions on how to use the payment plan.

Allow pop-up windows

Many MyU processes use pop-up windows. To ensure you can successfully complete tasks within MyU, make sure that your browser will allow pop-up windows from MyU. Most browsers block pop-up windows by default, so you’ll need to disable the pop-up blocker.

Parent/Guest Access

The University is prohibited from releasing certain information to parents and other third parties without permission of the student. Students may authorize access to their record and/or student account by completing the Parent/Guest Access process.

13-credit policy

Do you know about the 13-credit policy? If you're a degree-seeking undergraduate, you pay a flat tuition rate based on 13 credits, regardless of your credit load. If circumstances prevent you from registering for 13 or more credits, you can apply for an exemption by the end of the fourth week of the semester.

Beware of tax season scams

Tax season is open season for fraud scams. Fraudulent telephone scams and also pop-up windows suggesting support and upgrades are commonly used for scams. For your own online safety, beware of telephone calls, supposedly from the IRS, telling you you owe money. Do not click on links or call telephone numbers that appear in pop-up windows. Learn more on the Phishing Scams Targeting the UMN.
