The Tuition Management Systems® (TMS) tuition payment plan is an interest-free alternative that allows students to spread any balance over three months. Students must sign up for the three-month payment plan well in advance of the bill due date to avoid late penalties. There is a $35 application fee each term that students choose to set up the payment plan. Visit the Tuition Management Systems website for more information on setting up a payment plan.
