Deferred Payment Plan


The Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) splits your tuition, mandatory fees, and campus room and board into four payments in the Fall And Spring Terms and three payments in the Summer Term.  The plan is continuous once you are approved. You remain on the plan until Business Services receives a written request or an email  to from your Official UM email.

There is a $33.00 service fee for each semester you use the Plan.  The $33 administrative fee, any special fees, past due balances, Blue Cross Ins. etc. will be included with the first payment. The DPP must be approved and set up before you will be allowed to use the DPP to pay your registration bill.

Tuition, self-support course fees, mandatory fees, and room and board are the ONLY charges split into four payments for the Fall and Spring Terms.  The payment plan is offered for the Summer Term and the allowable charges will be split into three payments.


The FIRST PAYMENT DUE DATE will always be the date of the first registration bill payment deadline date.  Please refer to Registration Payment Information  for the first payment deadline.  The use of the Deferred Payment Plan may be revoked if the first payment is not made by the first registration bill payment date.

Payment dates for second, third and fourth payments will be the first day of the month or the next business day if the first is on Saturday, Sunday or a holiday:

Fall payments are due: October 1, November 1 and December 1

Spring payments are due: March 1, April 1 and May 1

Summer payments are due: June 17 and July 17


*A $25.00 late fee is assessed on each of the payments not paid by the due dates.  If the due date falls on a weekend or a holiday the payment is due on the next business day.


Applications must be received 3 BUSINESS days prior to the deadline to pay your registration bill for the semester to avoid the loss of enrolled courses. The DPP applications are accepted throughout the registration period each semester.  As the remaining payments for each term become due, statements of account will be available on-line via your Cyberbear account. It is the responsibility of the student to notify Business Services, Student Accounts of any name or billing address changes.

Please do not estimate the payment amount.  You will not be able to use the DPP until your application is approved and appears on your registration bill.

The application and promissory note is an automated process accessed via your CyberBear account.
