Payment Plans are not currently available online.
The UCA Payment Plan allows you to make payment for tuition and fees, plus room and board if applicable, in easy monthly installments. It is an affordable alternative to paying your college expenses all at once.
A down payment and a non-refundable $30 enrollment fee is required when setting up the payment plan. All payment plans must be set up prior to the start of classes. If the Payment Plan is not in place prior to the start of classes, a $25 late payment fee will be added to your student account each month the plan is not in place. Please come by the Student Accounts Office in McCastlain Hall Room 144 to sign up.
Your scheduled payments will be drafted directly from your checking, or debit/credit card account. Monthly payments for Fall and Spring semesters will be drafted on the 15th (No Exceptions). Monthly payments for Summer will be drafted on the 1st (No Exceptions). UCA accepts Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
If payment is not received by the due date, a $25 late payment fee will be assessed to your account.
Items returned for non-payment will be handled under the UCA Policy of $15 per item returned.
For your protection, payment plan forms with drafting information should only be submitted by mail or in person. Please ensure that payment plan forms submitted other than in person are confirmed as received and completed by the payment plan administrator.
All payment plans are set up based on the total unpaid balance (or an estimate of the total unpaid balance) at that time. If there are any changes to a student’s account after the payment plan is set up, it is the student's responsibility to contact the payment plan administrator to make changes in the payment plan. Late fees may be applied to additional charges not included in the payment plan. When calculating the unpaid balance, expected loan amounts will be reduced by 4% to account for possible lender origination fees taken from the loan balance before the money is sent to UCA and applied to your account.
You may request a payment plan by at any time by visiting the Student Accounts Office in McCastlain Hall Room 144, contacting us at 501-450-5291, or e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. From January 5, 2015 - January 7, 2015, you may only request a payment plan in person due to increased traffic from fee payment.
