Monthly Payment Plans
Only US citizens are eligible to enroll in one of the university’s payment plans. International students, and those US citizens who choose not to enroll in one of the payment plan options, must pay the balance due by the beginning of each term/session before they will be permitted to finalize registration.
Any currently enrolled US citizen, or parent/guardian of a student who is a US citizen enrolled at the university, is eligible to enroll in one of our monthly payment plans. By enrolling, you are able to pay your tuition in monthly installments instead of the one lump sum payment that is due at the beginning of each term/session. This means you will be able to add your tuition into your monthly household budget and make it more affordable. Payment plan applications are not renewable and an application is due each term to secure monthly installments. Also, a student can have only one active plan per term.
All plans are interest free. You can participate in any of the plans and pay monthly without accruing interest.
A tuition payment plan is available at NO CHARGE, beginning Fall 2011.
