Monthly Payment Plan
Education expenses can be easier to manage when spread over predictable monthly payments. Our monthly payment plan, administered by Transact, is an alternative to one large payment and may help limit loan borrowing. The plan is available during fall and spring semesters only. The enrollment fee is $55 per semester. For more information and to enroll in the plan, please visit the payment plan website.
