This is phase one of an ongoing effort to improve payment options. Research and discovery efforts are currently underway to provide the best possible payment experience for all student audiences.
What is a payment plan?
A payment plan allows undergraduate students and authorized payers to pay during – rather than before the start of – a quarter. This means you have the flexibility to pay tuition and fees in smaller amounts, over time, rather than one lump sum before the first quarter’s billing due date.
The best part? You don't have to manually track your remaining payment amounts. This new feature will automatically rebalance installments prior to each bill to reflect additional charges (rebalance up) or aid/funding (rebalance down) and let you know when your next payment is due.
Did we mention it’s free to sign up? Enjoy the benefits of this service with no additional charges. As long as you are paying the installments on time, you will avoid any late fees.
Am I eligible?
To qualify for the payment plan feature, you must meet the following criteria:
- A matriculated, undergraduate student*
- Enrolled in the current term
- Have no prior-term balances
- Can set up a US/Domestic checking or savings account for automatic payments
*Coterm students on undergraduate billing are also included.
When can I sign up for a payment plan?
As long as you meet the eligibility criteria listed above, you will receive a payment plan offer email after the first bill of the quarter is posted. Please review the dates and deadlines below for additional information.
