Payment Plans

For full-time undergraduate day students, the University makes available a monthly payment plan administered by Higher One. The Tuition Payment Plan offers a monthly system for paying all or part of the tuition and/or room and board or townhouse or apartment complex fees over a ten-month contract. While this plan carries an annual enrollment fee, there are no other fees or interest charges.

Please note: you can only budget your tuition and/or room and board or townhouse or apartment complex fees through this program; all other fees are due and payable directly to Fairfield University for the Fall semester on August 1 and for the Spring semester on January 1. The last possible date for enrollment is August 1, and no applications or increases in contracts can be made after that date. Monthly Tuition Payment Plan contracts are renewed yearly.

For additional information, call Higher One toll free at 800-635-0120 (weekdays, 8 a.m.-10 p.m. and Saturdays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. ET) or visit them online at https://tuitionpaymentplan.com.

The Tuition Payment Plan that was previously administered by Sallie Mae is now administered by Higher One. You may continue to see references to Sallie Mae on the enrollment site until it has been updated later this year.

 

For Graduate and Continuing Studies students, payment plans are available during the Fall and Spring semesters. At billing, the student pays one-third of the total tuition and fees and signs a promissory note to pay the remaining balance in two consecutive monthly installments. The promissory note payment due dates vary according to the semester. Failure to honor the terms of the promissory note will prevent future monthly payment plans and affect future registrations. There is a $25 processing fee for utilizing the monthly payment plan.
