What is a Tuition Installment Plan or TIP?

The Tuition Installment Plan (TIP) is an alternative to student loans that allow students to pay for college over time. Students who could benefit from TIP are those who pay out-of-pocket or are waiting for third-party funding and need an alternative to student loans. 

Upon registering for classes, our Student Financials Accountant 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.
