Payment Plans

You have the option to pay tuition and fees over the course of each semester by enrolling in an optional payment plan.  Undergraduate and graduate students, and their authorized payers, are eligible to enroll when plans are available.

Eligibility

  • Your account must be in good standing (not past due)
  • Your total balance due (estimated or actual) must be $250 or more
  • Study Abroad participants are not eligible to enroll at this time.
  • Payments must be made via automatic bank payment (ACH) from a regular United States checking or savings account or credit/debit card. (A nonrefundable 2.75% service fee applies to all credit/debit card payments.)  We accept American Express, MasterCard, Visa and DISCOVER.

Costs to participate

  • $25 nonrefundable enrollment fee per semester (or $45 for the year if you sign up for both at one time)
  • $30 fee if a payment plan payment is returned

Estimates

If you’re enrolling in a payment plan before the semester starts, you need to estimate the amount of tuition and fees you’ll pay.  See Estimated Cost of Attendance for help.  The Payment Plan will automatically switch from “Estimated” to “Actual” a couple of weeks before classes start.  The plan may need to be rebalanced periodically to match your student account balance.  This will require either the student or the plan owner to log in and manually rebalance the payment plan.  For instructions, visit Rebalancing Your Payment Plan.

More information:

  • Once you complete all the steps to enroll, you are set up for automatic payments.  Payments are processed in the evening on the 5th of each month of your plan.
  • If the 5th falls on a weekend, your payment will be processed the following business day.
  • If payment is returned, a $30 returned payment fee applies.
  • The amounts you need to pay may change due to rebalancing resulting from changes to your account like changes in course fees, adding or dropping classes, or financial aid.
  • Both the student and the plan owner have access to rebalance the payment plan.
  • If the student enrolls in the payment plan, the student is the owner of the plan and can choose to share Payment Plan email notifications with any or all of their Authorized Payers.
  • If an Authorized Payer enrolls in the payment plan, that Authorized Payer is the owner of the plan and will receive Payment Plan emails as well as the student.
  • “Blocked” payment plans mean you are not eligible to enroll either because your account is past due, your balance is less than $250, or you are participating in Study Abroad.  You are blocked from Continuing Education plans if you are not enrolled in Continuing Education.
  • You will continue to receive monthly email notifications informing you of the total student balance due.  As long as you are in good standing on your payment plan, you do not need to do anything when you receive these emails.
