Deferred Payment Plan

Please note: The Deferred Payment Plan is not available for summer.

The Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) splits your tuition, mandatory fees, and campus room and board into four payments.  The plan is continuous and once you are approved to use DPP, you remain on the plan until Business Services receives a written request from you to be removed.

Students who are in good financial and academic standing may apply for this assistance. Students, who owe the University money, have a history of payment difficulty and/or GPA below a 2.0 may be denied.
There is a $30.00 service fee for each semester you use the Plan.  The $30 processing fee, any special fees, past due balances, Blue Cross Ins. etc. must be included with the first DPP installment. DPP must be approved and set up before you will be allowed to pay with a partial payment. Tuition, mandatory fees, room and board are the ONLY charges split into 4 installments.


Fall Payment Deadlines

  • **First payment due with first registration payment deadline. **
  • Second payment due October 1, 2020.
  • Third payment due November 2, 2020. (first business day following 11/1/2020).
  • Fourth and final payment due December 1, 2020.

** The use of the Deferred Payment Plan may be revoked if the first payment is not made by the due date.

A $16.00 late fee is assessed on DPP payments not paid by the due dates.

Applications must be received 3 days before the deadline to pay your bill for the semester to avoid the loss of enrolled courses. DPP applications are accepted throughout the registration period each semester. Postmarks are not considered. As the remaining installments for each quarter become due, statements of account will be available on-line on Cyberbear. It is the responsibility of the student to notify Student Business Services of any name or billing address changes.

Please do not estimate the payment amount. You will not be able to pay your bill unless DPP is in place and the 1st payment is paid in full through the pay option in Cyberbear or at the Cashiers Counter (Treasury) in Griz Central or by mailing a check with a copy of the most current registration bill.

Any portion of a payment that is in excess of the amount of the DPP installment due will be applied to other current debts. The Main Cashiers Office must be notified when paying any DPP or other charges in advance.
