Payments plans are only available on accounts that have not defaulted in past semesters on the payment plan and the account must be in good standing in order for a payment plan to be issued.

The University of Holy Cross offers a Tuition Payment Plan for the Fall and/or Spring semesters. It allows students to spread their tuition payments over 3 installments per semester. There is a $55.00 per semester non-refundable enrollment fee for this service. The Tuition Payment Plan includes tuition, program fees/tuition differentials, course fees and mandatory fees. All other charges are payable within the standard payment policies. The first third of the total balance and the $55.00 fee are due the Thursday before the semester begins. If payments are not made timely, there is a $55.00 late fee for each late payment.

Installment Tuition Payment Plan Charges included
First Payment Plan fee, 1/3 of tuition, program fee/tuition differential, course fees and mandatory fees
Second 1/3 of tuition, program fee/tuition differential, course fees and mandatory fees
Third 1/3 of tuition, program fee/tuition differential, course fees and mandatory fees

Please refer to the Tuition Payment Plan Terms and Conditions for complete details.

  • I must enroll in the payment plan by the Thursday before the semester begins to avoid losing my classes.
  • I am responsible for paying each of the three installments on time.
  • One missed payment will result in cancellation of the plan. Remaining tuition or fees will be due immediately and services will be subject to cancellation for non-payment.
  • Checks returned for non-payment will result in a $55 service charge. Two dishonored checks will result in future ineligibility for the plan.
  • Financial aid is handled separately from the Payment Plan.
  • Should it become necessary for the University to retain an attorney or collection agency to secure payment of any amount due, I will be responsible for all collection costs and legal fees.
  • I am required to re-enroll each semester to participate in the Payment Plan.

By enrolling in the Payment Plan,
I agree to these additional terms and conditions:

  • The $55.00 fee for the Payment Plan is non-refundable.
  • I am responsible to pay tuition in full even if I do not attend classes. I must officially withdraw to obtain any available refund/reduction of balance. The last date for a 100% tuition refund is: see Dates and Deadlines.
  • I agree to pay ALL tuition/fees on the plan. If I add or drop classes, I must check my account on Self Service or contact the Bursar's Office to determine the effect on the payments.
