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 should be set up prior to the start of classes. Please come by the Student Accounts Office in Bernard 110 to sign up.
Your scheduled payments can 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, Discover, and American Express.
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 Returned Items 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 1% 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 at any time by visiting the Student Accounts Office in Bernard 110, contacting us at 501-450-5291, or e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that payment plans will only be set up in person during fee payment (see our main page for hours and locations).
