TIPP (Tuition Installment Payment Plan)
What is TIPP and what does it cover?
The Tuition Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) allows students to pay for their college
education in three installments, interest-free. The plan covers tuition and class
fees. Students must be enrolled in at least 12 self-pay credits to qualify for the plan and
there is a $30.00 non-refundable enrollment fee.
How do I enroll in the plan?
Students need to fill out a TIPP enrollment form at any cashiering location.
The first payment plus the enrollment fee is due at the time of enrollment. Payments
can be made by check, cash, or credit card (VISA or MasterCard). The last day to enroll
in the plan each quarter is as follows:
- Summer 2016: June 9, 2016
- Fall 2016: September 6, 2016
- Winter 2017: December 1, 2016
- Spring 2017: March 2, 2017
Do I need to reapply for TIPP every quarter?
Yes, you need to reapply in person at the Cashiers' Office.

What if I am late with a payment?
Payments are due by the first of the month. If a payment is not received by the
first business day of the month then the students will be dropped from the TIPP
program and will not be eligible for TIPP in future quarters. Registration will
then follow the current policies for students with unpaid balances and disenroll
them from classes.
Where do I make payments?
Payments can be made directly at the Cashiers' Office or they can be mailed to the
addresses below. If mailing your payments please allow enough time for mail delivery
and posting to your account, and include your student ID (SID) number on the check. Payments
can also be made by phone or by fax using a VISA or MasterCard or debit card. Please
include your student name, student ID (SID) number, VISA or MasterCard number, expiration date
and security code from the back of the card on all faxes. We are sorry but TIPP
payments cannot be made online because partial payments cannot be made online. If you would
like to pay online, you must pay the entire balance on your account.

What if I add or drop a class?
The dollar amounts listed on the TIPP enrollment form cannot be adjusted for additional
tuition and fees incurred by adding classes. Students are responsible to pay all
additional tuition and fees generated by adding a class after establishing a TIPP
account. If a student drops a class which creates a refund of tuition and/or fees,
the refund will be applied to that student's outstanding balance.
