  • For the five and four installment plans, at the time of enrollment neither charges nor aid will have applied to the student account. As a result, the enrollee will be asked to estimate the charges and aid that will be applied to the student account in January. Installments due before February 1, will be based on these estimates. Beginning with the February 1 installment, actual charges and aid disbursed will be used, along with early installments paid, to determine the remaining three installment amounts for February, March, and April. Any adjustments for the final three installments will be communicated on or around January 20, 2015. Any credits received after January 20, 2015 will affect remaining installments.
