Interest-Free Monthly Payment Plan Options 2018-2019

Payment plans allow students and Authorized Users the option to spread their balance due for the fall or spring semester over a five-month payment period extending past the semester due date. Each payment is twenty percent of the net balance due for the semester. Enroll early for a discounted fee and to spread your payments out evenly.  Payments are due June through October for the fall semester and November through March for the spring semester. The fee is due upon enrollment each semester. Simply enroll online when plans are available.

Payments are automatically calculated based upon the account balance. Please have all scholarship and financial aid documentation complete so proper credit can be applied to your account.

The payments are adjusted regularly in the overnight process if the balance changes. The balance is calculated as follows (amounts are for illustration purposes only):     

Charges per semester $31,960
Less any Credits or Anticipated  
  Financial Aid posted per semester $25,402
Equals Total Payment Plan Amount  
To Be Divided Into Five Installments per semester $  6,558

Plans open in mid-May for the fall and early November for the spring.
