The University offers a payment plan that allows students or authorized users* to divide tuition, fees, and contracted residence housing in monthly, interest-free installments. Students or authorized users must schedule payments to be automatically processed each month. A monthly reminder email will be sent to both the student and the authorized user with notification of the upcoming payment. A $50 late payment fee will be assessed for payments received after the due date.
If you are in financial distress and you cannot afford to pay your bill and you missed the payment plan enrollment deadline, we encourage you to visit the Financial Care Team webpage here to learn more and place a referral for assistance with payment options.
Late Registration Payment Plan
Beginning October 1, 2021, students or authorized users may enroll in the October Payment Plan. This plan uses the student’s actual tuition, fees, and pending financial aid. A 30% down payment is required at the time of enrollment. Payments are scheduled to automatically process on the 23rd of each month.

*Please note, after October 23, students and authorized users will not be able to self-enroll in a payment plan. Any requests for a payment plan after October 23 may be made through a Financial Care Team referral. Once the student completes a Financial Care Team referral, he or she must participate in meetings with the Student Financial Success Center and be approved for a special payment plan by a Bursar's Office representative.
The method of payment used at the time of enrollment will be the same method of payment for the automatic, scheduled payments each month. Students or authorized users can pay with an eCheck by entering the payer’s routing number and bank account or with a debit or credit card. Please note there is a 2.85% service charge associated with each transaction paid by debit or credit card, but payments made via eCheck are not assessed the service charge.
Changing the Payment Method
Only the individual who enrolled in the payment plan has the ability to change the payment method. To do so, the user should:
- Log into TouchNet through MyUSI or the Authorized User login.
- Under Scheduled Payments, click on the icon under Action and select Edit. Note: To update every payment, the user must edit every payment individually.
- Enter the new payment method.
*A student or authorized user may only set up one payment plan for a student. If multiple authorized users will be making payments towards a student’s account, the student must initiate the payment. For information on how to create more than one authorized user for a payment plan, please contact the Bursar’s Office by email at email@example.com or call 812-464-1842.
