Monthly Payment Options 

Education expenses can be easier to manage when spread over predictable monthly payments. Our monthly payment plan, administered by Flywire, 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.
