All payments must be made prior to course registration charges appearing on the student account for the given term. Unused payments are returned if enrollment does not occur within eight months of the first payment. Contact the TSU Bursar's Office at or for additional information.

  • After the down payment, the remaining account balance is payable in three monthly installments each term.
    • The Installment Plan process will not calculate a current term Plan where balances are owed for prior terms.
    • Additional term charges that are added after enrolling in the plan (i.e., adding additional classes or room/board or reduced financial aid) will change the monthly amount due.  The additional amount can be paid separately before the next Plan due date to avoid a recalculation,
    • A payment reminder or monthly statement is not mailed. 
  • A Late Payment Fee of $25 is assessed for each installment not paid on or before a Plan's due date.  When the due date falls on a weekend, payments not received by Friday will be assessed the Late Payment Fee.
