Deferred Payment Plan

How to Enroll in a Payment Plan

  • Log into MyUTK.
  • In the section called My Services, select the View/Pay Fees link.
  • Find the heading called Payment Plans to complete your enrollment.

This plan is available to students in good financial standing who also have a current term balance of $50 or greater.

The DPP allows students to pay 50% of the total term charges, plus a $30 service charge, by each term’s due date. Students who pay at least 50% but do not enroll themselves in the DPP will be added to a plan for a $40 fee.

Students who do not pay 100% of their charges by the due date are required to enroll in the DPP.

After the first installment of 50%, half of the remaining balance is due approximately 45 days later, and the final balance is due approximately 15 days later.

There is a $35 late fee if you do not pay the installments on time, even if you do not receive a reminder statement. All unpaid fees and charges must be paid in order to access registration services, receive a transcript, grades, or a diploma.

All existing rules and policies pertaining to returned checks, refunds, withdrawal from school, dropped classes, application of financial aid to unpaid accounts, reinstatement, service charges, and collection costs are applicable to the DPP.

If you are not eligible for the DPP, you must pay 100% of the total term charges by the due date so your schedule isn’t cancelled.
