Ave Maria realizes that educational expenses are easier to budget when they can be spread over monthly payments. Therefore, we would like to offer you the opportunity to pay for each semester using the monthly payment plan. There is only an affordable setup fee of $25 for each semester that you utilize this plan.
Any parent, guardian or student is eligible for this plan. The Tuition Payment Plan allows you to meet all or part of Ave Maria's academic expenses on a monthly schedule instead of one lump sum each term.
For your convenience, and to ensure you are never late with a payment (possibly causing you to lose the privilege of using the Payment Plan), your payment will be automatically withdrawn from your checking account (ACH) or charged against a credit or debit card.
You may finance estimated tuition, room, board, and other fees for either the fall or spring term (5-month plan for each term).
The first payment for the Fall is due on August 1st, with the first Spring term payment due on January 1st. All other payments are due on the first of each month.
Setting up a payment plan is easy
After you log into CASHNet, through your Self Service account, you will find a link to the payment plan setup page, simply follow the instructions provided.
Please note that all payment plan payments are automatically withdrawn; either from a checking or savings account, or by using one of the accepted major credit cards.
What about late enrollment?
A payment plan can be established at any point up to the add/drop date. The total charges are divided into 5 payments and all payments that would have been due at the point the plan is established must be paid a the time of setup. (For example, if you establish the plan in August, you pay one payment plus the $25 setup fee. There would be four remaining payments--due September, October, November and December.)
Can you make adjustments?
Any changes or adjustments to the amount due AMU during the contract period may be transferred to your Tuition Payment Plan by calling the Student Financial Services Office at (239) 280-1571. These adjustments may increase or decrease your Payment Plan balance due. (Examples may include, but are not limited to, adjustments to Tuition, Room, Board, Financial Aid Award, miscellaneous charges or fines.) If your balance increases, the Student Financial Services Office representative will inform you of your new monthly payment at the time you authorize the change in your plan. If the balance decreases or you make payments that cause a credit balance, AMU will process a refund to you in accordance with the institutional refund policy.
