three easy payments to fit your budget

As you begin registering for Winter 2019 courses and prepare for the start of the semester, now is the time to start planning your budget. To help with the process, we offer a flexible no-interest three-month payment plan that lets you spread the cost of tuition for Winter 2019 over the semester.

here is how the three-month payment plan works:
  1. Sign up between December 16, 2018 and January 13, 2019 (by 8PM) at the Student Account Center
  2. Pay the $42 non-refundable fee online when you sign up.
  3. First-time UM-Flint students will receive a paper bill indicating the amount of tuition due, including the first payment. All students will also receive email reminders prior to payment due dates.
  4. Make your three tuition payments by the following dates:
January 15, 2019
February 15, 2019
March 15, 2019
Payment can be made online anytime before these due dates at the Student Account Center or in person at the Cashier's Office, located at 261 University Pavilion. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday.
NOTE: It is important to make your payments by the stated due dates to avoid late fees and registration holds that may prevent you from being able to register for classes or request transcripts.

why sign up for a payment plan?

Signing up for the three-month payment plan option as early as possible allows you to:

  • Spread out the cost of attending UM-Flint over the entire semester, rather than paying your tuition all at once up front.
  • Pay no interest on the payments you make toward tuition, as long as you make your payments by the stated due dates.
  • Have more time to plan and budget before the semester starts.
  • Give our Office of Financial Aid staff more time to help you finance your education.
  • Make sure you are able to pay for and complete the semester so that you don't lose the credits you earn.
  • Make sure you don't end up with student loan debt for a semester you don't complete.
  • Keep your financial aid eligibility by paying your tuition and completing the semester.
