Using financial aid/veterans benefits with payment plans

If you choose to set up a payment plan on the tuition balance not covered by your financial aid and/or veterans benefits you must set up the payment plan in person at a Financial Aid Office.

Following is an example using fall semester:

Fall tuition charges 2,000.00
Pending financial aid/veteran benefit (500.00)
Remaining balance 1,500.00
Down payment($1,500/3) 500.00

The payment plan balance will be adjusted when the financial aid/veteran benefit is applied to your student account. .   

Schedule changes & plan adjustments

If you add or drop classes, your payment plan charges are recalculated to reflect the new amounts due and a notice is sent to your ACCmail. 

Important:  If you drop a class you are still responsible to pay the tuition charges in accordance with the state refund policy.

Future payment plan payments

You can choose to schedule your payment plan future payments. When you make your down payment on your payment plan, select the option to save your payment method. Saving a method of payment allows you to save only the payment method  information. It does not set up any type of payment for your classes.  It is a convenience so you do not have to re-enter the payment method information the next time you make a payment. When scheduling your payments, you must enter the amount due for each future payment on or before the due date to avoid late fees and holds to your student account.

Scheduled payments will continue to process as entered  unless you change or delete the payment. Any change to your payment method information will require rescheduling future installments.  You will receive an email reminder of your scheduled payment prior to processing. Any changes or deletions must be done by you at least 24 hours before the scheduled payment date.

Late payments and failure to pay

You are responsible to make payments by the tuition payment plan deadlines. If you fail to pay on or before the payment due date:

  • There is a $20 fee for each late payment.
  • A student hold is placed on your record until the debt is paid.

Unpaid payment plan accounts may be sent to an outside collection agency. You are responsible for any collection costs and attorney’s fees associated with the collection of your account.

Authorized users

You can add an authorized user who is able to set up a payment plan for you online.  Only the authorized user can make online payments on that plan.  You are still responsible for any amounts not paid and any late fees incurred.  Go to authorized user  for more information.

Proxy form

You can authorize someone else to set up a payment plan for you at the cashier office. Go to Student Account Proxy Authorization for more information.
