    Payment Plans

    Traditional Payment Plan
    The payment of direct costs of tuition, fees, room and board, if applicable, (less any applied financial aid) is due one week prior to the start of each semester. Approximate billing dates are mid-July and early December.

    Interest-Free Monthly Payment Plan
    At AU, you can fit the cost of an education into your budget by paying your academic expenses in affordable monthly payments. Your first five payments (August 1-December 1) are allocated to the fall semester, and the second five payments (January 1-May 1) are allocated to the spring semester. In some instances, the payment amount may vary between semesters due to the out-of-pocket obligation for each individual semester. There is a $30 enrollment fee per semester (subject to change without notice).

    Please visit the Student Accounts page for more information regarding the semester payment plan as well as for a complete listing of charges and fees, including tuition, room & board, and other payment options.
