Monthly Payment Plans

Many students and their families are seeking ways to budget their educational costs and minimize borrowing. The College of the Holy Cross has partnered with TouchNet Bill+Payments to offer semester payment plans. With TouchNet Bill+Payment, you can plan for your educational expenses and eliminate the need to make a single, large lump sum payment prior to each semester.

The Calculated Payment Plan is set up to pay the remainder balance due on the account after charges and financial aid or any other payments are applied to the account. If new charges are added after enrollment in the plan, your monthly payments will rise. If you have non-plan payments or new credits after enrollment in the plan, your monthly payments will decrease. 

The Calculated Payment Plan requires participants to provide a payment method so that the monthly installment payments are automatically scheduled and deducted from the account of your choice according to the payment plan schedule.

Please Note:

  • If you have a balance due from a previous semester, this will need to be paid prior to enrollment in a new semester payment plan. The Calculated Payment Plan will only include charges for the current semester. 
  • You can enroll in the payment plan when the official billing statement has been released.
  • To participate, you must agree to automatic, scheduled payments that are drawn on the stored account of your choice.
  • Payments made using a debit or credit card incur a 2.95% convenience fee charged and retained by the vendor.  Therefore, we encourage families to avoid this fee by paying using a checking or savings account. 
  • Although the monthly payment plan through TouchNet is interest free, the plan carries a non-refundable enrollment fee of $60.00 for each semester that you participate in the plan.
  • Your account will be flagged that you have enrolled in a Payment Plan after the $60.00 enrollment fee has been paid. The account will only reflect a credit when an installment payment has been made. 
  • Changes in both charges and aid that may occur on the tuition account will be reflected in the upcoming installment.
  • A notification of the change in monthly installments will be sent to the plan participant when any recalculation occurs.
  • There is a returned payment fee of $10.00 for all returned payments.
  • All payments are due on the first of the month. The entire payment plan will be canceled for nonpayment on the 15th of the month if no payment has been received. 

It’s easy to enroll in the payment plan.  Just log into your TouchNet Bill+Payment authorized user account to enroll online.  Please contact the Bursar Office directly at (508) 793-2521 if you have questions.
