TIPP (Tuition Installment Payment Plan)

What is TIPP and what does it cover?

(time and money illustration)

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 2017: June 9, 2017
  • Fall 2017: September 7, 2017
  • Winter 2018: December 7, 2017
  • Spring 2018: March 19, 2018

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.
