How does financial aid impact the payment plan?

A. Financial Aid will reduce the total amount due in each installment.  It is important that student submit all financial aid paperwork timely so that aid can be processed can be used in payment plan calculations.  The more aid shown on the account the lower the amount the student will have to pay in the payment plan.

Please note that any reduction in financial aid could change the overall amount you owe.  Students are responsible for ensuring all installments are made as scheduled. Individual installments can increase due to changes in financial aid. Please ensure that you have an understanding of your financial aid and review payment plan installments before they are due.

What happens to the payment plan when changes are made to my term balance due?

A. The payment plans are set to automatically adjust remaining installments to either increase or decrease due to changes in a student’s account.

An example of reducing a balance can result from dropping a course with no liability. This will cause the payment plan to reduce the amount due in future installments to compensate for the new lower balance.  Similarly adding an additional course or reducing available financial aid can result in a higher balance due.  The payment plan will increase all installments that are not yet due equally to cover the remaining balance.

As installments can end up different from when the plan was initially agreed to, it is recommended that students review their payment plan prior to each installment.  Installment reminders are sent out 7 days before each installment due date and will include the amount to be withdrawn.  This amount will not increase once the email reminder is sent.

Will payment plans auto deduct money from my account?

A. Payment plans will automatically take payments from an account chosen at time of enrollment.  Changes to scheduled payments can be made at any time through the Bill+Payment system.  A PDF guide on how to make adjustments to scheduled payments can be found in the Payment Payment Guide. Installment reminders are sent out 7 days before each installment due date and will include the amount to be withdrawn.  This amount will not increase once the email reminder is sent.

What happens if I fail to make a payment on time?

A. Any installment not paid by the installment due date can result in your removal from the payment plan. When removed from the payment plan the full balance will be due and payable immediately. Past due balances are subject to late fees and account holds.
