    • If paying your full balance in one payment is not feasible, you may consider the Deferred Payment Plan. This option allows you to break your fall and spring semester balances up into four payments. Your summer balance can be split into two payments. Please review the provisions of the Deferred Payment Plan below and monitor payment due dates in the Academic Year portion of the Calendar on this website.


      The deferred payment plan is offered for Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. The summer payment plan has only two payments.


      An agreement form must be completed, signed by the student and submitted to the cashier's office with the first payment in order to be on the plan. First payments without the form will not be accepted. A new form must be completed for each semester. Incomplete or illegible forms will be returned. Forms are available at the Piqua Campus at the Cashier's Office and at the Darke County Campus in Greenville.


      A non-refundable service charge of $25 is assessed each semester for students using the payment plan. This fee is payable with the first payment.

      Charges Included in the Plan

      The plan is ONLY for instructional, general, lab, security, and tech fees. Books, supplies, parking fees, fines, child care registration, child care fees, lamination fees, and psych retreat fees are not included on this plan.

      Financial Aid and Other Tuition Assistance

      1. The first payment cannot be paid by your financial aid or any other tuition assistance (example: Scholarships)
      2. Any change in Financial Aid or other tuition assistance may require adjustments to your payments.
      3. If you have not yet received a Financial Aid award letter, you must pay your fees in full or go on the payment plan and make your scheduled payments.

      Adding Classes

      If you add to your class schedule, your payments will be re-calculated.

      Dropping Classes

      1. If you drop a class during the refund period, your remaining payments will be reduced accordingly.
      2. Dropping a class after the refund period has ended does not release you from your financial obligation under the plan.
      3. Non-attendance of class or notification to instructor or department does not constitute official withdrawal. You must complete and sign a withdrawal form and turn it in to the the Registration Office.

      Payment Method

      Payments may be made by cash, check, money order, American Express, MasterCard, VISA or Discover. Payments may be made in person, by mail, or may be deposited in the payment drop box. Students on the payment plan ARE NOT to make payments online.

      Registration After Due Date

      If you register after the first payment is due, your first payment will be due on the day of registration. The second, third and fourth payments will be due on the regularly scheduled due dates.

      Late and Partial Payments

      If either your second, third or fourth payment is not received by the due date, or a partial payment is received, you will be assessed a non-refundable $25 late fee for each late payment.

      Returned Check Fee

      If your check is returned from your bank, a returned check fee will be assessed.

      Payment Notices

      It is your responsibility to know the payment due dates and to make payments on time.

    • The federal and state governments along with several private entities provide financial assistance to students to help you pay for your college education. While you are primarily responsible for paying for your education, you may charge your tuition, fees, books, and required supplies against the financial aid awarded to your account. You may view these awards at WebAdvisor.

      Applying for Financial Aid can be a long process. If your eligibility, or lack thereof, has not been determined before payment is due for your classes, you will need to discuss your payment options with the Cashier's Office. (Making payments will not impact your eligibility for financial aid.)
