Student Accounts 2015-2016
Southwestern offers three payment plans for fall and spring semesters to help students manage their university expenses. Classes taken during the summer require full payment at the time of registration for each module.
PLAN I — CASH
When the total charges for a semester are paid on registration day, a discount of 3% is given on the cash paid for tuition, room, and board. (Before this discount is calculated, all scholarships, loans, grants, awards, other discounts, and university aid funds are subtracted.) Students using this plan must bring with them at registration time the full amount of the package plan, plus miscellaneous charges such as music lessons and private room fee. A cash discount is not given on post-baccalaureate student, ADP, or other discounted programs. This discount does not apply to payments made by credit or debit card.
PLAN II — FOUR-PAYMENT SEMESTER AGREEMENT
This plan is a four-payment contract with the University. The registration fee, due in July, is 60% of semester charges, and financial aid can be applied toward this requirement. The remaining balance will be divided equally over four payments due the 10th of each month, as follows:
July Registration fee, minimum of 60% of semester charges
August 10 First payment
September 10 Second payment
October 10 Third payment
November 10 Final payment
December Registration fee, minimum of 60% of semester charges
January 10 First payment
February 10 Second payment
March 10 Third payment
April 10 Final payment
Students must go to the OpenCUAS Student Portal in July and December to choose this payment option.
PLAN III — THREE-PAYMENT SEMESTER AGREEMENT
