  • Five (5) Monthly Payments beginning May 1st
  • Four (4) Monthly Payments beginning June 1st
  • Three (3) Monthly Payments beginning July 1st

For the Spring

You may increase or decrease the amount of your payments to reflect changes in the financial aid you are receiving.  You determine how much you wish to budget on your semester TMS payment plan(s). 

A $40/per semester TMS enrollment fee, payable to TMS, includes monthly billing statements.
