Payment Plans

Transact offers students the ability to enroll in a tuition and fees payment plan which splits the total cost of tuition into installments.  Students can select to pay in 2 or 4 installments for the fall and spring terms. Students enrolled in summer sessions A, C, and/or F can select to pay in 2 installments. Payment plans are not offered for students enrolled in summer session B. The first installment will be due at the time that the student signs up for the plan, along with a $15 service fee. Subsequent installments are due every 4-6 weeks during the term. Students can sign up for the payment plans entirely through the Transact System and will receive emails as payment dates are approaching.
