Payment Plans

The University offers the option to pay in full or to pay via participation in a payment plan.

Payment by payment plan requires the student or authorized user to sign up each term within their student financial account.  Please see our helpful “How To” videos for enrollment instructions.  Instructions for accessing your account can be found at our Make-a-Payment page.  The plan features four monthly payments for the Fall and Spring terms (late enrollment may reduce the number of payments available) based on actual charges.  Two payments are offered for the Summer term.  The plan payments may increase or decrease if a student makes changes to their schedule.  Students or authorized users may elect to save a payment profile and schedule payments to be made on or before the due date.  Late fees may apply if payments are not made by the due date.

The first payment is due at the time of enrollment.  A $30 fee will be assessed at enrollment.

Use of Federal Financial Aid to Pay Prior Year Charges

Students should complete any requirements as soon as possible to ensure awarded funds are available to use toward their financial charges.  Students who have not completed their financial aid arrangements in time to receive their awards by the due date may need to enroll in a payment plan.

Federal financial aid awarded for the current academic year cannot be used to pay for prior year outstanding balances (balances incurred during or prior to summer).
