Ease of Monthly Payments

The TIPP program allows students to spread out payments for tuition and other university charges over four months for the Fall and Spring semesters and two months for the Summer term.

Bills generate after the close of business on the 15th of each month. If the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday, billing occurs after close on the previous day of business. The only exceptions are the start of the Fall and Spring semesters when bills generate after the close of business on the first day of class. They are due by 3 p.m. on the next billing date. Due dates are available on your eBill.
