Standard Current Term Payment Plan

The University of Michigan-Dearborn provides a program for current terms available at the Student Accounts Self Service website in the Payment Plans menu.  Students enrolled in this program will traditionally have their tuition and fees divided into equal installments due on fixed dates once a month.  Questions regarding those payments should be directed to tnet.help@umich.edu.  The main payment plan description has been summarized below:

  • The standard current term payment plan expects students to pay multiple equal installments of his or her tuition balance typically on a third Wednesday of a month.  The exception is special "Financial Aid" payment plans that may require specific percentage payments of an overall balance on installment dates.
  • There are two main options of how to pay when selecting a payment plan: 1) AUTOMATIC or 2) SELF PAY. When a student selects the AUTOMATIC Payment Plan, he or she is electing to have all installments scheduled to be withdrawn from a saved payment method. If a students selects the SELF PAY Payment Plan, he or she is electing to manually make each installment on or before their due dates. Regardless of how you select to pay on your payment plan, the installment dates are the same for both. 3 Month plans not set in summer terms do not carry an AUTOMATIC option.

  • Most payment plan deadlines are extended beyond the first installment date to grant additional time to enroll.  When enrolling in the payment plan after the first installment date, the student must pay the first installment along with the non-refundable setup fee online at the time of registration.
  • Students who are attempting to enroll in a payment plan without making an online payment may calculate and pay the anticipated amounts at the Student Accounts office a day before enrollment is initiated. When going online to enroll the next day, if previous arrangements were calculated and performed correctly, the online payment plan enrollment process will not force an online payment to complete enrollment. Student Accounts staff cannot enroll students in payment plans in person at the Payments window.
