Payment Plans

The University of Cincinnati offers a tuition payment plan (TPP) for those students who need to spread their tuition and fees bill across the term. In response to feedback given to us over the past year we have made a few changes to the payment plans:

  • The 4-Pay Option is only available during the first month of the term. Enrollments after the first month are for the 3-Pay Option.
  • The enrollment fee and the first payment are due within a few days of enrollment.

It is very important that students and/or parents note the enrollment and payment due dates.

Students can only have 1 payment plan per term so if a parent or third-party is paying a student's bill the student will need to authorize them using the delegated access process.

Students can sign up for the payment plan by visiting the Catalyst Student Portal (https://catalyst.uc.edu). On the "My Finances" tab locate the "Payment Plan Enrollment" link on the left-hand side of the page and <clikc> on it. Follow the instructions to sign up and make your first payment, including the $35 enrollment fee, within a few days.

PLEASE NOTE: Payment Plans are term specific and enrollment is required each term. We do not offer an annual payment plan.

Parents or other third-party payers (uncles, grandparents, etc.) will use the delegated access process.

>> WARNING <<

Your application is not fully accepted until your first  installment plus the $35 enrollment fee is processed with your bank.

Failure to sign up for the payment plan by your payment due date may result in assessment of late fees and interest charges. Late fees and interest charges after the payment due date are the student's responsibility.
