Installment Payment Plans

The Installment Payment Plan (IPP) assists students in meeting the cost of their higher education by offering a convenient no-interest payment option.

The university administered IPP distributes the cost of the tuition, fees, housing, dining charges for a semester into four equal installments.


All undergraduate students attending the university with current charges of $100 or greater are eligible to participate.  All prior semester balances must be paid in full to be eligible. 

***Installment Payment Plans are not offered for Summer the term***


Students who receive financial aid are also eligible for participation in the IPP. Students who are receiving financial aid must deduct the amount of their aid to determine the net total due.  If it is $100 or greater, the remaining amount may be paid by installments.

Cost of plan

There is a $50 nonrefundable administrative fee payable with the first installment.  Interest is not assessed on the outstanding balance.


To participate in the IPP, a payment of one-fourth (1/4) of the balance due plus the $50 administrative fee is required.  In addition, during the enrollment period, students must complete the Installment Payment Plan application form.  Both the initial payment and completion of the application form (including student signature) are required in order for the student to participate in the IPP.

The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum.  Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees.
