TMS Payment Plan

The Tuition Management Systems Interest Free Monthly Payment Plan allows you to spread your tuition payments equally over several months without interest or finance charges. (There is no payment plan for DCOM or Veterinary Medicine.)

Paying monthly through current income and savings helps you limit borrowing and reduces the overall cost of education. The monthly payment plan is available to all families regardless of financial need. The only cost is the annual enrollment fee of $65 for the annual plan and $45 for the semester plan which includes valuable Life Insurance Coverage at no additional cost.
