The University of South Alabama Federal Credit Union is offering USA students an easier way to pay tuition and fees, housing, and meal plans in equal monthly installments* during the semester, subject to credit approval.
The USA Federal Credit Union Tuition Payment Plan is a low cost plan for financing 100%
of tuition, fees, housing, and meals with equal payments over the term of the semester. A book allowance up to $750 is also offered. The Annual Percentage Rate is 12% (APR), and subject to change. In order to qualify for the tuition loan, a student must meet the Credit Unionís eligibility requirements and join the USA Federal Credit Union by depositing $25 into a share account. This amount will be returned to the student when the student no longer wishes to belong to the Credit Union. To secure a tuition loan for the semesterís fees, students should see a Credit Union Representative by the University of South Alabamaís balance due date.
