View your Bill and Enroll in a Semester Payment Plan via Touchnet - Step by Step Guide

Last updated on Dec 15, 2022


  • Students who are not enrolled in classes will need to contact the Student Accounts Office to enroll in a payment plan.
  • Students enrolled in classes and are awaiting to be awarded financial aid have the option to pay without any financial aid deducted from their balance or contact the Student Accounts Office to enroll in an estimated payment plan. Students who choose to pay without financial aid will have their installment payments recalculated automatically once awarded financial aid.
  • Students whose total aid covers or exceeds their total balance do not need to enroll in a payment plan.
  • Students paying in full do not need to enroll in a payment plan. Please refer to the step by step guide on how to make a payment.
  • We charge a $25 nonrefundable payment plan enrollment fee per semester and per payment plan. This means students enrolled in a semester plan would be charged another $25 enrollment fee if they change their plan to a different one.
  • PLEASE NOTE that students/parents need to enroll in a payment plan and setup automatic payments per semester. Payment plan enrollments and automatic payments do not automatically continue to future semesters.
