Catholic University offers a monthly payment option to students who are unable to pay their out-of-pocket balance in full at the start of the semester. Students who are enrolled in a payment plan sufficient to cover their out-of-pocket balance are exempted from financial penalties and account holds. The only charge for the plan is a $40 service fee paid at the time of enrollment.
Payment plans are offered in 3, 4, and 5 month options for the fall and spring semester and in a 2 month option for the summer term. Installment payments are set for the 1st of each month are are automatically deducted from the bank account or credit card used to enroll in the plan.
Payment plan options are semester-specific and students may not utilize this option to remit payment for a prior term balance.
After the add/drop period has concluded each semester payment plans will "auto-balance" to ensure that the remaining scheduled monthly installments will fully cover the balance due. Enrollees in the payment plan consent to automatic rebalancing at the time of enrollment in the plan.
Students and Authorized Users can enroll in the payment plan option via the Payment Plan tab in Cardinal Pay.
Continuing students should take note that Catholic is no longer partnered with Tuition Management Systems/Afford.com for payment plans. Students can enroll in a plan following the above navigation with no need to contact an outside vendor.
