Monthly Payment Plan

Undergraduate and Graduate Monthly Payment Plan

Arcadia University offers 2 payment plan options for currently enrolled as well as new, incoming undergraduate students.  The first option is a 10-month, interest-free plan which begins on August 1 for the upcoming Fall and Spring semesters.  (This is done by signing up for both the Fall and Spring plans at the same time.)  The second option is a 5-month, interest-free single semester payment plan beginning on August 1 for the Fall semester or December 1 for the Spring semester.  There is a $50 fee due at the time of registration for either plan.  Payment Plans are created via the student’s Self-Service account or the eBill/ePay online gateway. 

Credit Card Payments

As part of our efforts to reduce expenses and keep tuition as low as possible, the University is unable to subsidize the usage fee charged by credit card companies for those who pay tuition and housing costs. All credit card payments for tuition and student housing will be processed through our online payment gateway hosted by CashNet. CashNet will accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards. Payments by these credit cards will incur a 2.75% convenience fee. CashNet also will accept payments via electronic check. Payments made by electronic check will not incur a convenience fee.
