  • Tuition and Fees = $4,000.00
  • Room and Board = $4,500.00
  • Less Financial Aid = ($3,500.00)
  • Account Balance = $5,000.00

PAYMENT PLANS AVAILABLE:

Budget Payment Plans

This payment plan for tuition and fees (including housing and optional fees) is available for fall and spring terms only. A separate application is required for each term a student wishes to use the Budget Payment plan. This plan requires payments in four equal installments (25% each) of the total account balance. The initial installment may also be due depending on pay plan enrollment date. A $25 service charge is due at the time of set up. A late fee of $50 will be assessed for each installment payment that is not paid by the installment due date. Based on the example above, the installments would be four equal payments of $1,250. Payment installment amounts are subject to change if a student makes class schedule changes, adds charges such as parking, or if the Financial Aid award package is adjusted after initial disbursement. Students and eBill authorized users will receive email notifications if payment plan installment amounts change.

Emergency Payment Plan

This plan is available to students who owe a minimum of $2,000 of mandatory tuition and fees and is intended as an alternative method of payment for students who may be receiving aid after the established due dates. The plan allows for deferring the initial payment of the first installment through financing provided by a short-term loan. The balance will be paid in three payments. The first payment is 25% of the balance. The second payment is 37.5% of the original balance. The third payment is the remainder of the balance. A service charge of 1.25% of Mandatory Tuition and Fees (maximum $25) is due at the time of set up.The initial installment may also be due depending on pay plan enrollment date. A late fee of $50 will be assessed for each installment payment that is not paid by the installment due date. Please note that because this plan is an alternative to receiving aid on a student account, not all charges qualify to be included in the loan amount. Any charges unrelated to mandatory tuition and fees, such as room and board or parking charges, must be paid by the regularly established due dates. Based on the example above, the student would not qualify for the Emergency Payment Option, because the student’s Tuition and Fees ($4,000) less the Financial Aid ($3,500) is $500, which is less than the minimum $2000 balance required. Payment installment amounts are subject to change if a student makes class schedule changes, adds charges such as parking, or if the Financial Aid award package is adjusted after initial disbursement. Students and eBill authorized users will receive email notifications if payment plan installment amounts change.

Summer-Only Plan

This payment plan for tuition and fees (including housing and optional fees) is available for summer terms only. A separate application is required for each summer term a student wishes to use the Summer Payment plan. This allows the user to defer payment of the term balance until the specified due date. A $25 service charge is due at the time of set up. A late fee of $50 will be assessed if the term balance is not paid in full by the installment due date. Payment installment amounts are subject to change if a student makes class schedule changes, adds charges such as parking, or if the Financial Aid award package is adjusted after initial disbursement. Students and eBill authorized users will receive email notifications if payment plan installment amounts change.
