All payments must be made prior to course registration charges appearing on the student account for the given term.

Deferred or Installment Payment Plan enrollment is available online. A payment plan option is not available to assist in with your Summer Term balances.

Students who use the Installment Payment Plan can view the plan amounts online.  To ensure that the Plan was processed successfully, students should review their myTSU accounts for an enrollment confirmation email.

  • The required down payment shown, a $50 Administrative Fee, and any prior-term balances must be paid in full at the time of enrollment. 
  • 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.
