Payment Plans

Change in Payment Plans Starting Summer 2019.

Beginning with Summer Session 1 2019, payment plans will be offered through the Touchnet Billing and Payment Center.  Prior to Summer, payment plans were facilitated by Tuition Management Systems (TMS).  ASU will no longer use TMS as our payment plan provider.  Payment Plans will change in the following ways:

  • The cost of all payment plans will be $40 each.  This enrollment fee is Non-refundable.
  • Payment plans will be opened for enrollment on the day that the first statement for the term is sent.
  • You will no longer estimate your payment plan amount.  The payment plan will auto-calculate the amount of each payment based on the balance associatd with tuition and fees on the account.  Some miscellaneous charges may be excluded from this calculation and are due on normal billing cycles in the "Amount Due" section of your bill.  In addition, payments that are returned by your bank or Financial Aid that was "Memoed Authorized Aid" at the beginning of the term that was never posted to your account may not recalculate to include in your monthly payments.  Payment plan payments that are past the scheduled payment date will be included in the "amount due" on your billing statement.  Payment plan payments scheduled for the remainder of your plan show up under "Credits/Antipcated Credits" as "Payment Plan Remaining Amt".  These payments have yet to be made but are included in this area and expected to be paid as agreed in the most recent payment plan agreement.   If additional pending Financal Aid awards, credits, payments, or charges are added to the account after the payment plan is set up, the payment amount may change in an amount that will allow the remaining payments to satisfy your balance by the end of your payment plan.  An email will be sent each time the payment plan payment amount changes. 
  • At all times, it is the student responsibility to make payments as agreed and to confirm that all payments including those not included in the payment plan are satisfied by Oct 30th.  The only exception to this are payments that are set to be made in the November final payment for the Fall 2019 payment plan.  If that is the only balance remaining on your account, a registration hold will not be placed.

The image below is an example of a billing statement for September 17, 2019.  In this example, the $365.92 is a balance that is either not included in a payment plan or a payment plan payment that is past due.  The $365.92 is due based on the current due date on the invoice.  The amount in the "Credits/Anticipated Credits"  beside "Payment Plan Remaining Amt" is the amount remaining on your payment plan that has yet to be paid for the remainder of the plan.  These are not included in the amount due but assume they will be paid based on the upcoming payment plan due dates as listed in your most recent payment plan agreement.
