You do not need to sign up for our partial payment plan. If you plan on participating in this payment plan, just make your payments as described below.
The University offers a partial payment plan for Fall and Spring terms which provides for two installment payments after the initial due date. Tuition is due approximately 10 business days before the beginning of the term. Refer to Student Billing or your on-line eSIS account for actual due dates. A minimum of 33.3% or 1/3 is due by the first payment date for the term. An additional 33.3% is due 30 days after the initial due date. The remaining balance is due 30 days after the second payment, including the finance charge. All charges on the student account are eligible for the partial payment plan.
Pending Financial Aid, is not shown on your billing statement and is not considered your first 1/3 payment. Click on the pending aid link in the Finance Section of your eSIS Student Center. Deduct pending aid from Total Due to calculate your portion of tuition and fees. Pay this amount in full or 1/3 of this amount to meet the minimum 1/3 payment by the first due date in the fall and spring semester.
You must pay at least 1/3 of your portion of tuition and fees by the first due date of the semester to avoid a $75.00 late payment fee.
A FINANCE CHARGE, assessed at 1.25% per month, an annual percentage of 15%, calculated on the unpaid balance will be added to each bill. To avoid all finance charges, the account must be paid in full by the second due date of the Fall or Spring term. This means that any remaining balance after the second due date is subject to a 1.25% finance charge every month it is not paid. If you are on the partial payment plan you will be assessed one 1.25% finance charge on your last payment.
All financial aid awards must be disbursed to the account by the second due date to avoid finance charges. It is the student's responsibility to complete all financial aid requirements and monitor the status of his/her anticipated aid. Financial aid can sometimes take longer than expected and families should be prepared to start as early as possible in order to avoid late fees and finance charges. Finance fees are not waived just because a student has signed up for financial aid but it has not dispersed to the account yet.
Students on the partial payment plan will be billed for the full amount of the outstanding bill each month. Students may pay the remaining balance or more than the minimum percentage at any time to avoid further charges and fees.
There is no partial payment plan available for J-Term or Summer sessions. Pay by the due date stated on the first invoice for J-Term or Summer to avoid finance charges.
