Where can I find my registration bill?

UM uses your official UM email to provide you with important information, reminders and updates.  You will receive an email when your registration bill is available in CyberBear.


I am being asked to “Complete Enrollment/Pay Registration Bill” and I am not sure what this means?

If you have not yet finished your payment process you will see an alert message with the link to your registration bill – PROCEED TO REGISTRATION BILL.  Click on this link.

Completing your enrollment means that you have reviewed your registration bill for accuracy and are being asked to “pay” your registration bill.  

  • If you have an Amount Due, you will need to pay that amount by clicking on “Complete Enrollment/Pay Registration Bill” and following the payment link by the published payment due date.
  • If you have a zero or credit balance (refund due to you), you still need to click on “Complete Enrollment/Pay Registration Bill” by the published payment due date.

What are the consequences if my classes are cancelled?

When your classes are cancelled, you lose access to many of your University privileges (list is not all-inclusive and there may be other access and services affected if registration is cancelled).

  • May not have access to your Moodle account.
  • May not be able to use Campus Recreation facilities.
  • May not be able to obtain your student athletic tickets.
  • May not have access to Curry Health Center services.
  • May not have access to Dining Services and Residence Halls if you live on campus.
  • May not have access to services offered through ASUM (Associated Students of the University of Montana.

What are my options if I am expecting a refund?

You can receive your refund by Direct Deposit (ACH) to your bank account rather than a check

 in three easy steps:

  1. Log in to your CyberBear account and select STUDENT SERVICES.
  2. Under your picture there is a list of Additional Links and you will select Student Refunds.
  3. You will then click on “Select Option” and follow the instructions. You will need your bank name, bank routing number and checking/savings account number (debit card number will not work).

If you do not select an option, a check will be mailed to your UM mailing address.  Direct Deposit takes 3-5 business days.  A check takes 10-14 business days and requires you to keep you mailing address updated to ensure receipt of your check.  Refund files are processed each Tuesday and Friday, except during weeks that have a holiday.  Holidays may require the process dates to be modified.
