Important Notes to Keep in Mind
Enrolling in a payment plan requires a down payment. You must make a down payment to be able to enroll in the payment plan. The down payment must be made by the payment deadline to avoid losing classes for not making any payment arrangement.
The payment method used to make the down payment is saved and will be used to pay for future installments.
