Illinois State University charges tuition and fees on a per-credit-hour basis. Because of this, bills are inclusive of a single semester, not the academic year. Each semester, students have the option of paying in full or signing up for a payment plan.
If you choose to pay in full for the semester, you must pay the total balance by the first installment due date.
All students with a current semester balance are automatically enrolled in a payment plan at the beginning of the semester. The payment plan consists of five installments for Fall (Aug-Dec) and Spring (Jan-May) and two installments for Summer (June-July).
You will be charged a payment plan convenience fee if there is a current semester balance by the third installment due date for Fall/Spring or after the first installment for Summer semester. This fee is charged once per semester and is only assessed to accounts that are not paid in full as noted above. The payment plan convenience fee is $35 for Fall/Spring semesters and $30 for Summer semester.
Any new current semester changes to your account will affect your future payment plan amounts. The system will automatically recalculate your future installments to reflect the changes and will send you and any Authorized Users an email with the updated installment amounts.
* If you are studying abroad at an institution outside of the U.S., please be aware that Study Abroad charges are not eligible for the payment plan and are due in full by the date stated on the bill.
