Monthly Payment Plan (MPP) Option

Please note, your student must first register for Student Account Center and invite you as a participant.

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.
