Undergraduate Payment Plans

Full-Time Undergraduate students have the option to pay for the semester on a monthly basis via a payment plan administered by Nelnet. This semester-based plan allows you to spread the semester balance due over a 4 month period.

The Fall semester plan runs from July 1 to October 1. The deadline to enroll is July 20.

The Spring semester plan runs from December 1 to March 1, with enrollment opening in November. The deadline to enroll is December 20.

Please note: Plans do not automatically renew from one semester to another. Students must sign-up each semester for a new plan. There are no exceptions to the deadline date for enrollment.

There is an enrollment fee per semester due upon sign-up.

Enrollment in a plan is initiated by the student through my.Fairfield. A student is able to grant access to others, such as a parent or guardian, who will receive their own login to the plan. Please contact the Office of the Bursar for assistance if needed at

For additional information, please call Nelnet Campus Commerce toll free at 800-609-8056 (Monday – Thursday, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. EST and Friday, 8 a.m.- 6 p.m. EST).

Graduate & Continuing Studies

For Graduate & Continuing Studies students, payment plans are available during the fall and spring semesters. At registration, students pay one-third of the tuition plus 100% of the fees. The student will sign a promissory note to pay the remaining tuition 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 processing fee for utilizing the monthly payment plan.
