Enroll in a Payment Plan

Our Payment Plans give families the option to budget each semester’s bill over a three- or four-month period with zero interest and no credit check.

There is a $40 fee for the four-pay plan, and a $45 fee for the three-pay plan.

If you make a change to your course schedule or receive additional funding, be sure to update your plan to reflect your new balance.
