Student Payment Plans
As a convenience, Southern Connecticut State University offers students the option to make tuition payments on a monthly basis by enrolling in a payment plan.
The Student Payment Plan allows you to break down your existing education expenses (you must be currently registered and/or have charges for the current semester to enroll in a payment plan) into easy to manage installments, rather than a lump-sum payment.
With a Student Payment Plan you can:
- Spread your payments over a period of months, interest-free
- Setup automatic payments using an ACH electronic debit directly from a personal checking account
- Receive real time e-mail notifications about account adjustments. Upon enrollment, students will receive an email confirmation. In addition, students and authorized users will be notified of any adjustments to the student's account status. Account adjustments may include:
Charges - enrolling in housing, adding a meal plan, dropping a course. (Note: charges will be evenly distributed amongst future payment installments) [See Scenario 1]
Payments - cash, debit card, check, eCheck, or money order may be applied to future payments (Note: payments received will determine any possible adjustments to future payment installments) [See Scenario 2]
Credits - Financial aid, scholarships, grants, and waivers will be evenly distributed amongst future payment installments. (Note: if credit awards cover ALL of your future installment payments, then NO future installment payments will be required) [See Scenario 3]
Payment Plan Enrollment
Payment plans will assist students and their families budget the cost of tuition and fees by spreading payments over the course of the semester.

- Setup automatic payments using a credit card or debit funds directly from your checking or savings account.
