Payment Plan

Keeping college affordable. (It's what we do!)

How it works

  • Payment plans can be accessed via under the Student Finance tab.
  • Payment plans can be created using a credit card, debit card or checking/savings account. You will be prompted to select which payment method you want for each scheduled payment.
  • Payments come out of your account automatically on the last day of each month.
  • All down payments and processing fees are processed immediately.
  • For students who create the payment plan while waiting for financial aid approval: you must contact 绿帽社 Student Accounts at 217-786-2480 or email Student Accounts to cancel the payment plan once you receive your award notification.
