If you are unable to pay your tuition and eligible fees by the term due date, you can automatically be enrolled in the payment plan during Fall and Spring Terms. Due to the condensed length of time, the Payment Plan option is not available during Summer and Winterim terms. Please be prepared to pay your Summer and Winterim student bills by the term due date. All eligible charges will be placed on the payment plan (if the student is eligible and does not have a NCR hold). To be eligible, a $100 payment is required by the term due date (enrollment deposit meets this requirement). An activation fee of 1.875% on eligible payment plan charges will be assessed when the two-month payment plan is initiated. There is no separate agreement completed for the payment plan, it is part of the Terms & Conditions signed by all students before registering for classes. Once signed, the payment plan is automatically activated when there are unpaid eligible charges on the students account. To review the Terms and Conditions for Enrollment, please go to Terms & Conditions.
The student can pay the eligible charges in two installments:
Eligible payment plan charges include mandatory segregated fees, tuition, meal plans, housing, online MBA course fees and online Business and Economics course charges. Ineligible payment plan charge examples include course fees, Purple Points, parking permits, weight room fees, health center charges, etc. These ineligible charges are due by the due date indicated on the bill to avoid finance charges.
If a student does not want to participate in the payment plan - ALL tuition, housing & meal charges will be due by the term due date even if the charge does not have a due date assigned.
