Terms and conditions apply to the Tuition Management Systems plan and include:

Fixed Payment Plan

By enrolling in the Fixed Payment Plan, you can pay a fixed price for up to a maximum of eight semesters.

Fixed fees are calculated from the cost of tuition, registration, service, and other fees, as well as from the cost of room and board in effect at the start of the first semester for which you register. Those amounts are then multiplied by the number of semesters you’d like to pay ahead.

Fixed Payment Plans are open to students who:

  • Are enrolled in full-time undergraduate programs
  • Do not receive any form of financial aid, loans, or scholarships

Please note: The Fixed Payment Plan does not cover summer semesters or part-time study. Explore enrollment.
