Please note that Employer Tuition Reimbursement Plan is not available to students in the MSSc program.

In addition to the payment options listed on our website, the 10-month payment plan is also available to MSSc students.  Students on the 10-month payment plan receive a monthly invoice showing the current amount due.  Payments are due on the 15th of each month.  If payments are not made by the due date, the student may be removed from the 10-month payment plan and the entire balance will be due in one payment.  Participation in the 10-month payment plan is based on a satisfactory payment history.

To choose the 10-month payment plan option, register online and follow the instructions below when you are asked to choose your payment option:

  1. Choose the Student Deferred Payment Plan as your option and put 25% down.   You will be informed that your remaining balance is due in one installment for the summer or three installments for the fall and spring.  You will need to accept the terms and conditions and click Continue.
  2. Once you have completed your payment, email and request that a 10-month payment plan Promissory Note be emailed to you.  The form will be emailed to you and you will need to sign it and return it to us within seven business days.
  3. If we do not receive the signed 10-month payment plan Promissory Note within seven business days you will be enrolled in our Student-Deferred Payment Plan, and tuition will be due as noted in the Student-Deferred Payment Plan option online.
  4. Once we receive your signed promissory note you will be enrolled in the 10-month payment plan.
