Rice University uses an electronic billing system, commonly referred to as eBILL. Each month, current term enrolled students will receive an email notification from Rice_Cashier@rice.edu, informing them of a newly published statement along with instructions on how to view the statement within Esther.
Bills are generated on the 1st of each month and are due on the 10th for the Fall and Spring semesters. Summer semester bills are generated on the 5th of each month and are due on the 15th. Unless enrolled in a Payment Plan, account balances are due in full on the due date of the first billing statement of the semester. Note - Payment Plans are not available during the Summer term.
Failure to pay your bill by its due date will result in one or all of the following:
In addition to email notification, you can sign up to receive text notifications, which can be configured within Esther.
Students also have the capability of creating Authorized Users within Esther. Authorized Users are typically parents, guardians, spouses or friends that the student wishes to grant access to billing and payment information. Not set up yet? Students can follow these simple instructions for creating an Authorized User.
Payment Plans are not available for the Summer Term. Billing will be assigned as follows:
