Payment Plans

Educational expenses can be easier to manage when spread over predictable monthly payments.  The university offers three types of payment plans to assist students and families.  Beginning on April 28, 2020, students and their financial authorized users can enroll and manage their payment plan through SIS on the CWRUpay tile.  Additional details for each plan are shown in the table below.

  • The 4-PAY and 3-PAY plans are budget plans that allows students and families to start making monthly payments before the semester starts.  These plans are a budgeting tool and do not have an enrollment (participation) fee. 
  • The 2-PAY plan allows for 2 (two) monthly payments after the stated semester's tuition due date and has an enrollment (participation) fee equal to 2.7% of the amount on the payment plan.  

Scheduled monthly payments are not shown in the Account Balance until the payment is successful and posted to the student's account.  There may be times when a scheduled payment is after the semester tuition due date, it is permitted and no penalties will be assessed as long as the payment is successful and posted to the student's account. 

The payment plans do not auto-balance.

Students and their financial authorized users can change payment method (bank account) before each scheduled payment.  Requests to cancel enrollment and/or change the monthly withdrawal amount must be submitted by the payer at least 5 business days before the next scheduled payment.  All other requests (change withdrawal date or change payment plan) will not be permitted unless there is extenuating circumstances.  All requests must be submitted by email to studentaccounts@case.edu.
