Payment Plan

Enrollment for the Spring 2023 Payment Plan is now open!

The Monthly Payment Plan at NDSU enables students to pay tuition and fee charges over a three-month period. If payments are current, enrolling in a payment plan eliminates late fees and registration holds.

Students will need to sign up for the payment plan each Fall and Spring semester; prior semester participants are not enrolled automatically. No payment plans are offered for summer terms.

No down payment is required. However, we strongly encourage a payment equivalent to approximately 25% of your account balance be paid right after enrolling as this will reduce the amount of the subsequent installments. Payments can be made online, via mail or in-person.

We will begin processing enrollment requests on the first day of each semester and may take a few business days before installments show on student accounts. An email notification will be sent out once the student has been officially enrolled. The cost of enrolling in a payment plan is $30.00, which is charged directly to the student account after the installments are set up.
