Installment Payment Plans

IMPORTANT: Please read the following information and instructions below concerning the Installment Payment Plan.  Please note that there is no charge for setting up a payment plan.

Any student who is registered for classes is eligible to participate in EKU’s Installment Payment Plan.

Fall 2021 Enrollment Dates:

5 Month - Available August 10th - 28th (payments due 8/30, 9/29, 10/29, 11/29, & 12/28)

3 Month - Available September 28th - October 28th (payments due 10/29, 11/29, & 12/28)

FALL & SPRING TERMS:  Installment Payment Plans signed prior to the first due date of the semester will have the option of four or five month installments for fall and spring semesters. Installment Payment Plans signed after the first due date but before the second due date will be three month installments. The remaining payments will be billed in monthly installments with payment in full due by May 28th. 

If payment is not made by each appropriate due date, the student's account is subject to a late fee for each late installment payment (10% up to $25).

WINTER TERM: Payment Plans are available for winter, but payment plans are limited to two months. First payment is due November 30th & second payment is due December 29th. Enrollment for Winter 2020-21 will begin October 21st and end November 29th.

If a payment plan is not set up, any balance owed for Winter or previous terms is due IN FULL by November 30th to stay enrolled in Winter courses.

SUMMER TERM:  Payment Plans are available for summer, but payment plans are limited to three months.  Payment for 33.3% of the balance is due before the first due date.  Payments of 33.3% each are due the two following months, prior to the due dates.  Enrollment for Summer 2021 will begin May 8th and end May 29th.  

The $25 late fee for payment plans is waived for those that do not pay their May 28th payment on time. This allows students who are registered only in second summer session to skip their first May payment without penalty.
