Payment Plans

The University of Cincinnati offers a tuition payment plan (TPP) for those students who need to spread their tuition and fees across the term. In response to feedback given to us over the past year we have made a few changes to the tuition payment plan effective Summer term 2017:

  • The 3-Pay Option is the only tuition payment plan available.
  • 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 installment 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 to view and pay their bill using the delegated access process.

At this time only students can sign up for a 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 <click> on it.

When a student signs up for a payment plan in Catalyst (PeopleSoft) no payment is due right away so there is no reason for parents or third-party payers to share banking information with the student. The system will pay the outstanding charges and create 3 installment “charges” with the first installment being due 5 days before the start of the term. The $35 enrollment fee is due with the first installment. Once installments show on the student's bill, individuals granted delegated access can login and pay the installments.

PLEASE NOTE: Payment Plans are term specific and enrollment is required each term. We do not offer an annual payment plan. In addition, please be mindful that each monthly installment requires the payee to login and complete a payment transaction.

>> WARNING <<

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

Once enrolled in the tution payment plan the $35 enrollment fee is non-refundable. Please use caution when enrolling.

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.
