We accept fall payment plan applications from July 20 through Sept. 8.

You must apply each semester. The $25 fee per semester will be due at sign-up. We will be mailing out the first statement in July, which will be due August 10th unless you have signed up for PAYMENT PLAN B. Students and Authorized Users will be able to see all monthly billing statements electronically.  TouchNet will calculate the amount due by taking the balance after pending financial aid and dividing it by the number of  payments in your plan.

If you receive a bill for the full amount and want to sign up for the payment plan during the enrollment period, go to the button at the top of the page and  sign up. After the enrollment period, we have 10 day late sign up period but any missed payments must be caught up when you enroll.

We accept electronic checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express online using the TouchNet portal found on the student account home page. For more information, see the tab on the left. You may also mail a check or money order. Cash is excepted in the Student Accounts Office.  We cannot accept credit cards in the office or over the phone.

Failure to make satisfactory payment by the due date of your recent statement will result in a late payment charge of 2 percent of the payment amount due. This late fee will be reflected on the next monthly statement.

All payment plan payments must be current to remain on the payment plan through registration. All payment plans will be evaluated in October and March to see if payments are current. If payments are not current there will be a hold on future registration until payments are caught up or paid in full.  We reserve the right to remove any student with 2 missed payments.

Academic Year

Student Accounts will mail out the first July statement for undergraduate students and future statements will be available online between the 13th and 20th of the month. Bills are due on the 10th of every month or the first business day after the 10th.
