USA Payment Plan

As a way to help students and their families better navigate the cost of a college education, we are excited to offer the USA Payment Plan.  The payment plan allows students and their families the flexibility to spread out payments across multiple months. Students must enroll in the payment plan each term, and follow the deadline dates as set in the Financial Calendar.

▼   How It Works

Students, or an authorized user, must sign up each term to participate. Students may apply within their student account.

The plan features three or four monthly payments for the each semester (late enrollment may reduce the number of payments available) based on actual charges and plan enrollment date. 

Plan payments may increase or decrease if a student makes changes to their schedule. 

If an installment payment is not made by the due date and the student has a housing and/or dining balance, the student may be subject to administrative removal and temporary suspension of the meal plan. See the Guide to Residential Student Living for more information. 

Any payments to the student account will apply to tuition, fee, housing and meal plan charges before any refunds will be returned to students. 

Students must have a minimum balance of $400 to be eligible to enroll in the payment plan. Students with a past due balance of $200 or more from a previous term are not eligible to participate.

Students in the College of Medicine and Study Abroad are not eligible to participate.

▼   How Are Payments Made?

Simply enrolling in a payment plan does not result in automatic payment scheduling.  Payment plan participants must either log in each month to make payments or schedule their payments in advance according to the due dates of the plan installments within the student financial account.

A debit or credit card may be used to setup automatic payments. 

▼   Does The USA Plan Charge Interest?

No, the USA Payment Plan does not charge interest. 

Enrolling in a payment plan does not result in automatic payment scheduling.  Payment plan participants must either log in each month to make payments or schedule their payments in advance according to the due dates of the plan installments within the student financial account.

▼   Is There A Cost to Participate?

The first payment and a $35 nonrefundable processing fee are due at the time of enrollment.

A late fee of $15 will apply if installment payments are not made by the due date.
