Tuition Installment Plan (TIP)

What is TIP?

TIP is beneficial to any student who is paying out of pocket or waiting for third-party funding and wants an alternative to student loans. 

Upon registering for classes, our Tuition Installment Plan Specialist will personally set up your contracts, payments, and walk you through your plan.

If you set up your plan during early registration, your total tuition and fees will be divided into thirds. Later registration dates may lead to fewer payments (higher amounts). There is a one-time, non-refundable enrollment fee of $25. Late payments are assessed a one-time, non-refundable late fee of $30 per late payment.
