RFU Payment Plan

The RFU Payment Plan allows you to divide your educational expenses into 3 convenient monthly payments per quarter. The RFU Payment Plan is a pay-as-you-go budgeting plan, instead of saving to make a single payment at the beginning of each quarter. RFU Payment Plan participants may budget their tuition, fees, university housing, and student health insurance expense as a part of their regular monthly payments on a quarterly basis. Participants are billed in equal monthly installments once the RFU Payment Plan enrollment has been completed. This process will transfer the balance owed in the student's account to the RFU Payment Plan. A total minimum balance of at least $1,500.00 is required to participate in this plan. (This means that you must owe at least $1,500.00) 

A quarterly processing fee of $10 will be charged once enrollment has been completed.

Enrollment in the plan represents a contractual agreement between the student and the University. Enrollment for the payment plan is annual and will cover the full Academic Year you are billed in. Once the student is enrolled in the plan they may cancel out of the plan. This process can be completed by contacting The Office of Student Finance.  

You will be able to review the installment plan and due dates for each payment by accessing your student account on Student Self-Serve under the Student Finance option. Once you have read and accepted the agreement you will be able to view the installment schedule for your payments and can begin submitting payment.

If payment is late, declined, or returned for more than 1 month the payment plan may be canceled. If the plan is canceled the student will no longer be able to enroll in the payment plan. Financial holds will be processed on RFU Payment Plans for past due balances or accounts that submit checks with insufficient funding (for NSF checks a fee of $25.00 will be charged). This processing will prevent the release of transcripts and/or the ability to register for future quarters. Financial holds will only be removed once the past due amount is paid with certified checks, credit card payment, or wire transfer (without exception).
