Payment Options

 Academic Year

You will be e-billed in July for the fall semester, and in January for the spring semester. The fall semester payment is due August 9. The spring semester payment is due February 1. If payments are late, a finance charge of 0.5% per month will be assessed on the unpaid balance.

You can Pay Online using ACH or Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover).

Payment Plans are available if you wish to make monthly payments throughout the semester or academic year.

St. Olaf has partnered with Nelnet, formerly Tuition Management System (TMS) to offer two payment plan options:

Semester Plan (available both fall and spring) which is a 5 month payment plan.  The cost to enroll is $52 each semester.

Year Long Plan which is a 10 month payment plan. The cost to enroll is $70 each year.

Families can choose between a due date of the 1st or 15th of the month.  The first payment for the year would be July 15th or August 1st depending on the due date you select.

For no additional fee, your monthly payments can be set up to automatically deduct from a checking account. However, should you wish to pay via credit card, TMS will accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express. Please be aware that TMS will charge you a convenience fee for each transaction if you choose to pay via debit or credit card.  For those who join the monthly plan after the start date, catch-up payments will be required. To enroll in one of these payment plans, please contact TMS directly at the following: Tuition Management Systems – stolaf.afford.com  or 800-722-4867.

The Student Accounts Office cannot make any payment plans or payment arrangements for outstanding balances. If a monthly payment plan will be best for you, please enroll with Tuition Management Systems.
