Cardinal Stritch University Payment Plans

Students may elect to pay over time the balance of their bill after financial aid has been taken into consideration by entering one of the following payment plan options. These options are interest free and require no credit check.

Students wishing to enroll in a payment plan must select the appropriate payment plan that corresponds to their academic program type -- term or non-term. This is noted on your student account statement.

Term Based Academic Programs:

  • Full-year enrollment -- Students selecting this payment option must be enrolled in a term-based program and planning to attend school in both the fall and spring semesters for the coming academic year. This payment plan option will spread the balance due for the entire year over a maximum of 10 payments with final payment due by the date(s) indicated on your payment plan agreement and no later than the last day of classes of the spring term as noted on the Academic Calendar.
  • Single semester enrollment -- Students selecting this payment option are planning to attend school for only one semester. This payment plan option will spread the balance due for a single semester over a maximum of five payments with final payment due by the date(s) indicated on your payment plan agreement and no later than  last day of classes of the term as noted on the Academic Calendar.
  • Summer term enrollment-- Students selecting this payment option are enrolled in summer courses and will spread the balance due for the summer courses over a maximum of three payments with the final payment due by the date(s) indicated on your payment plan agreement and no later than the last day of classes of the term as noted on the Academic Calendar.

Non-Term Based Academic Programs:

  • Three- to five-month plans -- Students selecting one of these payment periods must have all currently billed courses ending in a corresponding time period of three, four, or five months.
  • Six- to 12-month plans -- Students selecting one of these payment periods must have all currently billed courses ending in a corresponding or longer time period. For academic programs in which the currently billed courses will be taken over more than 12 months, the maximum payment plan period is 12 months or less.

To maximize the number of payments, and thereby minimize the amount of each payment for these plans, students must enroll in the payment plan one month prior to the start of classes.
