Welcome to Rice University!

The following checklist will help you manage your account:

✔️ Establish Authorized User Access for anyone that you would like to be able to access your account and discuss it with the Cashier’s Office.

✔️ Sign up for Direct Deposit so that any refunds related to your student account can be directed to your bank account.

✔️ Review your payment options.

✔️ Remember health insurance is required. Waive if you have qualifying coverage or enroll in a plan. Visit Student Health Insurance for details.

✔️ Review the Student Financial Responsibility Agreement.

✔️ Consider tuition refund insurance. Offered by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc., this elective insurance plan provides coverage for tuition, room and board should a student suffer a serious illness or accident and withdraw from classes before the semester is completed. Read details about the plan.
