AMS - Tuition Pay
Academic Management Services is a pre-payment plan that allows a student to make semester payments over a five-month period (two months before the semester and three after the semester starts). We recommend students sign up for the plan by phone (800) 635-0120 or on their web site at http://www.tuitionpay.com/ . There is an $16.75 fee to sign up with AMS. During peak registration period AMS representatives are on campus to assist students. Students whose tuition charges change due to the adding or dropping of classes will have their AMS contract amount changed by the Bursar's Office. AMS will be informed of any change to the student's plan amount and will adjust the student's monthly payment for student's who sign up to have automatic withdrawals from their bank account with AMS. The amount will be adjusted to reflect the modification of their AMS contract amount. Note: Payments not received by AMS on or before your contract due date will be charged a $15.00 late fee.
