  • Installment Plan Options

    Installment Plan Options: Students with an outstanding balance must select an Installment Plan unless they have enough accepted financial aid or have submitted third-party sponsor voucher for the semester. Installment plan selection must be completed before midnight on the 100% refund date. The 100% refund date for each semester can be found on the Academic Calendar.

    Each installment plan option allows students to select a payment due date that fits into their monthly budget. Payments will be drafted once a month based on the option selected.

    Advantages of the Installment Plan:
    • Easy online sign-up
    • Monthly installment due date options (i.e. 5th; 10th; 15th; 20th; 25th)
    • Flexible payment options
    • No interest
