An installment payment plan for the fall and spring semesters is available to all enrolled students.  It is offered and administered through JMU’s vendor OnPlanU. The plan is setup separately for each semester. All payments must be completed during the applicable semester and the plan must be paid in full in order to continue enrollment at JMU. You can determine the budget amount based on your specific circumstances. Tuition, room rent, meal plan charges and other appropriate fees are posted throughout the year on the UBO web site. You may use estimated amounts when setting up the plan and we can make adjustments for increases and decreases when final amounts are determined during the first weeks of the semester.

About the Plan

The installment payment plan operates as an automated electronic check or automated credit card charge processed on the monthly due dates. There is a 2.75% fee to use a credit card. There is no fee to use an electronic check.

A non-refundable enrollment fee of $30 per semester will be charged when you enroll in the plan.

Payment plan balances can be increased or decreased by contacting the University Business Office during regular business hours.

OnPlanU will charge a fee for bank payments returned for insufficient funds.

Two missed installment payments will result in termination of the contract and the balance will be due immediately to the UBO.  Late payment fees will apply.

University Tuition and Fee information is available on our rates page.
