  • Monthly tuition payment plan. Students may sign up for a monthly tuition payment plan through Sallie Mae, a third party provider. To sign up for this service, please visit tuitionpay.salliemae.com. You will have the choice of selecting one semester or you may estimate what your expenses will be for the entire year and take advantage of the annual plan. You may begin either plan as early as April and may have up to 12 months to pay (will vary depending on payment plan selected and date payment plan was completed). By setting up the payment plan early, you will reduce the amount of your monthly payment and have more time to spread out your payments. If you need assistance in estimating your annual costs, please contact the Office of Student Business Services.
