Payment Plan Option and Instructions

If you are a matriculated graduate student, you may now enroll in an automatic payment plan to pay your bill over time. A principal advantage is that you can now register early without having to pay your total bill at the time of registration. This allows you to reserve your space in a course while being able to pay your bill over a few months. 

Although there is a $25 per semester, nonrefundable fee, no interest is charged. Payment methods include automatic bank payment (ACH - no fee) or credit/debit card (Discover, MasterCard, American Express for which a 2.75%convenience fee in addition to the enrollment fee will be assessed). If a payment is returned, a $30 fee will be assessed. No payment plan is available for summer sessions.
