Payment Plans

In an attempt to offer an alternative to additional borrowing, Samford University provides interest-free payment plan options for all students enrolled in fall and/or spring semesters. Below is a brief description of the options available for the 2017–2018 academic year. If you participated in past years, please know plan details may have changed and may operate differently. Plans are available for fall and spring terms only. There are no plans for Jan Term or summer school. Take time to explore the information below concerning the plans available for the 2017–2018 academic year.

Failure to enroll in the fall 2017 payment plan will make your semester balance due in full on September 5, 2017. The same is true for those who do not enroll in a spring 2018 payment plan. Your payment is due in full on January 29, 2018.
