Payment Plans at JMU

James Madison University has a new vendor for student transactions. We are now using HigherOne and they have a user friendly payment plan option for students/parents looking to pay tuition in separate payments. For more information on this please read below. 


For information on how to set up the payment plan please visit our FAQ's site and under the M3 heading you will find 'how to set up payment plan'. 


For more detailed information view our Bookmark Payment Plan and Informational Payment Plan brochures.

*The enrollment fee for the payment is $30. This is just a one time payment for each payment plan you set up. The rate assigned is reflecting of the enrollment fee since this is an interest free plan.

Additional Information

If your payment doesn't go through with a Credit Card, when trying to set up the account, double check the numbers and try again. You can try until it goes through. 

If you have insufficient funds in your Credit Card account, HigherOne will try again the next day. If it doesn't go through again they will email you, and if you haven't paid by the 20th of the month they will charge a $10 late fee. 

If you fail to pay two months in a row, without paying the previous month's balance, then HigherOne will cancel your plan and you will be responsible for the remaining amount. 

ECheck

If you are paying with an Echeck and it doesn't go through, double check the number and try again. You can try until it goes through.

If you have insufficient funds in your ECheck account, it will take your bank a couple of days to see that and HigherOne Bank will get a notice and send you an email. If you go back on your account HigherOne will require you to set up a different account to pay for your plan. If you haven't paid the balance in 15 days, HigherOne will charge a $25 late fee. 

If you fail to pay two months in a row, without paying the previous month's balance, then HigherOne will cancel your plan and you will be responsible for the remaining amount.
