Sign-Up for a Payment Plan
1. Navigate to the Payment Plans Sign-Up Page
You can do this by: 1) clicking on the Payment Plans tab, or 2) clicking the View Payment Plans button in the Account Summary section.
If you are eligible for a payment plan and have been extended an offer, you will see the message “You are not on a payment plan for the current term.”
If you are not eligible for a payment plan and have not been extended an offer, you will see the message "View Details"
3. View Payment Plan Options
You must sign-up for a payment plan during the enrollment period (see “When can I start using payment plans” for the enrollment deadlines for each quarter).
You’ll see options to: A) select the 3-month plan, or B) pay balance in full.
What if I see an option to enroll in a 2-month plan?
This will only occur if you did not enroll in the payment plan by the quarter’s enrollment deadline. (See “When can I start using payment plans” for the enrollment deadlines for each quarter). Your outstanding balance will be split into two-part payments after the enrollment deadline. If you were eligible for a 3-month plan and you missed your opportunity to sign up, you may still be offered a 2-month plan.
4. Select Payment Plan
Click the Select button for the payment plan.
5. Input Payment Information
Next, you’ll be asked to input payment information, including:
- First name
- Last name
- Routing number
- Account number
- Account type
Your monthly payments will be automatically debited from your bank account.
On the left side of your screen, you can view a summary of your payment details, including:
- Your first monthly payment amount,
- Total number of payments,
- First payment date, and
- Monthly automatic withdrawal date.
You can click the “view schedule” link to view a summary of your 3-part payment plan amounts and when they will be automatically withdrawn from your account.
6. Review and Confirm
You’re almost finished!
