If you enroll in the Fall payment plan from 8/14 through 9/14, your plan will automatically change to a three-month payment plan. This means it will divide your total balance into three installments and your due dates will be 9/15, 10/15 and 11/15.
 

The Payment plan amount is determined by the following:

  • Balance of Tuition and Fees minus anticipated Financial Aid*

  • If new charges are applied to your account or additional aid is received, the amount is spread out over your remaining plan payments.

  • A $10.00 late fee will be assessed monthly for any missed payments not made within 3 days of the due date.

  • After two late payments, you may be subject to an additional $100 late fee from the University and a billing restriction may be placed on your account (preventing you from registering for future classes and ordering official transcripts).

* Changes to your enrollment status may affect your financial aid amounts.  Please contact the Financial Aid office if you have any questions.
