Payment Plans

In addition, it is possible to set up a payment plan with the cashier’s office (this may be done online through your online services account or in person at the cashier’s office on any campus). This enables you to pay a portion of your tuition down to hold your seat, and pay the remainder in installments by set deadlines throughout the semester.
