Tuition Installment Payment Plan (available to matriculated students only)

Students may arrange with the Cashier’s Office to follow an installment payment plan. Upon request, the Graduate School will prepare a Tuition Referral Form for you which will outline all of your tuition and fees for the semester for you to take to the cashier’s office. For promissory forms and to make arrangements, please go to the Cashier’s office located in the Medical Science Building at MSB B-644 Tel: (973) 972-4379. The fee for the installment plan is $20.00. Students wishing to sign up for the installment plan do not have to do so prior to registration, but must do so prior to the billing due date.

• Payment of all fees plus one-half of the tuition is due before or on the billing due date.

• Payment of one-quarter of the tuition is due 30 days after the due date and the final quarter is due 60 days after the billing due date.

Any student who elects to use the payment plan and finds it impossible to meet this obligation must contact the Financial Aid Office immediately to make alternative arrangements. No degree will be awarded to any student until all financial obligations to the University have been satisfied. Students adding a course that begins mid-semester must pay the full tuition prior to the start of the course.
