Payment Plan Information

The University currently utilizes the Tuition Management Systems (TMS) payment plan. The plan offers the opportunity to pay tuition costs over 10 equal monthly payments for a small annual enrollment charge. The payment plan is available to every full-time student regardless of their financial aid eligibility. TMS Payment plan application material is available at Please note: It is important for you to take into account all sources of financial aid before you budget for the payment plans. Institutional and federal aid should be deducted from your tuition to determine your budgeted amount. Refunds will not be issued until your annual tuition has been paid in full. (i.e., Refunds from Federal Direct Loans, Institutional Aid, and/or Alternative Loans will not be issued to you until your tuition balance for the year has been satisfied.)
