Pay Your Bill Over Time

If you're not prepared to pay your tuition in full before classes begin, pay in installments through one of our no-interest payment plans. A $30 non-refundable service fee per semester applies to using the payment plan. It's a convenient and low-cost way to fund your education and manage your budget. Sign up early to get the best options.
