Monthly Payment Plans

This is one of the best options for tuition financing.  Interest-free and everyone qualifies.  With a one-time enrollment fee, it allows fixed payments of annual college expenses over eight-to twelve-month periods.  And if you’re here for only one semester, there are four or five-month plans available to you.

  1. Use the “Payment Plan” section to enroll in a payment plan.
  2. Go through the quick and simple enrollment steps to set up your plan.
