TMS Monthly Payment Option

Reed offers a monthly payment option administered by Tuition Management Systems (TMS). As of June 9, 2017, monthly payment plans may be set-up either through Student Account Center or by calling TMS at 888/316-9620 (outside U.S. and Canada call 401/921-3999). If your payment plan was set-up prior to June 9, when you register for Student Account Center, you will be prompted to link your payment plan account. Please note, your student must first register for Student Account Center and invite you as a participant. Thank you for your patience during this transition.

The only extra cost to you is an $55 non-refundable enrollment fee for a semester plan; there are no interest charges. A $50 late fee is applied each time a monthly payment is received after the due date. Accounts will be closed after 2 consecutive missed or returned payments.

Fall Semester Plans

  • 6 month plan starts in May
  • 5 month plan starts in July
  • 4 month plan starts in August

Spring Semester Plans

  • 6 month plan starts in November

Upon enrollment, you will receive separate monthly statements from Reed College and TMS:

  • Reed College Business Office Statements (e-bill): The statement you receive from Reed College will list tuition, fees, room and board, financial aid credits, miscellaneous charges and credits, and the credit for your monthly payment plan.
    • Please note, past due TMS amounts are not reflected on the business office statement.
    • Even if you have arranged to use TMS to pay all of tuition, fees, room and board, if the student incurs additional charges during the semester, you will still receive a bill for those charges from Reed College and those amounts are due to the college in 30 days.
  • Tuition Management Systems (TMS) Statements: The statement from TMS will be for amounts due to TMS towards your monthly payment plan.

Outside Tuition Remission

If tuition will be paid in part or in full by tuition remission or a similar benefit from an outside institution, and Reed College is provided with verification, the credit will appear as a "memo item" and the tuition amount due will be reduced. Typically, the parent first must complete an application with their employer and must also provide them with a copy of our bill. If Reed College is required to also submit documentation, the Business Office will do so upon notification. You may contact us at 503/777-7505, or student-accounts@reed.edu or fax 503/788-6687.
