The purpose of a payment plan is to help make college affordable. The college payment plan allows a student to spread the cost of tuition and fees over a 4-month period (3 months for summer semester). Payment plans are not offered for winter semester. A payment plan is valid for one semester only; students must enroll in a new installment plan each semester. A one-time, non-refundable fee is charged when a student enrolls in a plan. The first payment is due at the time of enrollment. If a student fails to make payments, the student will be dropped from the payment plan and all amounts become due to the college in accordance with published deadlines. Students with delinquent accounts are ineligible for a payment plan. Questions about payment plans may be directed to the Student Accounts office.
