Tuition and Fee Deferments and refunds

Installment Plan for Payment of Tuition and Fees - 4D3

  1. General

    1. All students enrolled for academic credit would be eligible for the Installment Payment Plan. The Plan is an option available to students.

    2. Eligible students would be permitted to make payments over time for the charges assessed for only their tuition and fees and housing contracts for each term (semester and summer session).

    3. A student will be assessed a $20 service charge for each academic term that the student uses the Plan.

    4. The amount due for each installment would be billed by the Bursar.

  2. Installment Plan Rules

    1. The installment payment amount due for an academic term's net charges would be determined after deduction for financial aid or estimated financial aid supported by a cancellation waiver granted by Student Financial Aid.

    2. The number of installment payments available to a student would be determined by the date of registration according to the registration periods described below. The initial installment payment for all terms would be due approximately eleven (11) calendar days prior to the first day of classes to avoid registration cancellation. A student registering after the first registration period for all terms would be required to pay all past due amounts and an initial payment, or be granted a cancellation waiver before his/her registration would be approved by the Registrar. The balance due would be paid over the remaining installment payments allowed.

      1. Fall or Spring Semesters:

        1. If the student registers before the first payment due date, he/she will make four (4) installment payments of 25% each.

        2. If the student registers on or after the first payment due date but before the beginning of the third week of class, he/she will make an initial payment of 25%, and three (3) installment payments of 25% each.

        3. If the student registers after the end of the second week of class, but before the second payment due date, he/she will make an initial payment of 50%, and two (2) installment payments of 25% each.

        4. If the student registers on or after the second payment due date but before the third payment due date, he/she will make an initial payment of 75%, and one (1) installment payment of 25%.

        5. If the student registers on or after the third payment due date, he/she will make one (1) payment of 100% of all outstanding debt.

        As an example, Fall Semester 2004 installment payment due dates will be: August 13, 2004; October 1, 2004; October 22, 2004; and November 19, 2004.

      2. Summer Session

        1. If the student registers on or before the first payment due date, he/she will make three (3) installment payments of 25%, 25%, and 50% due on the first, second, and third payment due dates, respectively.

        2. If the student registers after the first payment due date but before the second payment due date, he/she will make an initial payment of 25% due on the day of registration, and two (2) installment payments of 25% and 50%, due the second and third payment due dates, respectively.

        3. If the student registers on or after the second payment due date but before the third payment due date, he/she will make an initial payment of 50%, and one (1) installment payment of 50%, due the third payment due date.

        4. If the student registers on or after the third payment due date, he/she will make one (1) payment of 100% of all outstanding debt.

    3. Fall and Spring will have four (4) billing cycles each, and Summer will have three (3) billing cycles. Payments are due approximately one month after each billing date.

    4. Remaining installment payments would be adjusted equally to account for students dropping and adding classes at the time such changes are recorded in the Student Information System.

    5. A student would be officially enrolled when he/she has either paid tuition and fees in full, paid the initial payment or the initial scheduled installment payment, or has been granted a cancellation waiver in addition to paying all other past-due amounts. A student would have his/her registration cancelled by the Registrar when he/she fails to pay by the due date or fails to obtain a cancellation waiver.

    6. Late payments would result in the assessment of 1-1/2% per month of the payment due as a service charge.

    7. A student who does not pay all of his/her past due account balances by the due date may be withheld from 1) future enrollment, 2) future readmission, 3) transcripts, and 4) diplomas.

    8. Exceptions to the time payment policy may be granted only by the Vice Chancellor for Administration or the Vice Chancellor's designee.
