A Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) 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.
The Office of The Bursar reserves the right to add a student to a deferred payment plan if the student has an unpaid balance over $50 as of the statement date due date. Administrative enrollment in a deferred payment plan will result in the student being assessed an additional fee of $40.
How to Enroll in a Payment Plan
- On MyUTK in My Services, select View/Pay Fees.
- Select Payment Plans to complete your enrollment.
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.
