STERLING COLLEGE OFFERS FOUR OPTIONS FOR PAYING YOUR BILL

PLAN ONE

Pay net amount due by August 1st for the fall semester or by January 1st for the spring semester.  Net amount due represents total charges, less any scholarships, grants or student loans confirmed by the Financial Aid Office.  Sterling College accepts Visa, Discover, and MasterCard. Online payments may be paid through the secure student portal by selecting Pay on My Account located in the student account information.  

PLAN TWO

Enroll in a tuition payment plan that spreads net amount due over each semester. Sterling College partners with Tuition Management Systems (TMS) https://sterling.afford.com/. The yearly fee is $75.00 and semester fee is $50.00. All TMS payment plans end in April. 

PLAN THREE

Pay net amount using any Alternative Loans or Parent Plus loan.  All paperwork must be received in the Financial Aid Office by August 1st for fall or January 1st for spring. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! 

PLAN FOUR

In order to qualify for a payment plan directly with Sterling College, all federal loans available must be applied to the student’s account.

Payment agreements must be approved by the Student Account Coordinator.

Recurring payments from debit/credit card can be requested and if approved the balance must be paid in full by the end of each semester, unless otherwise authorized.

A finance charge of 2% of the outstanding balance will be applied to student’s account if payments are not being made.

Failure to pay balance will result in a hold being placed on the account and student not allowed to enroll in future classes.

FINANCIAL CLEARANCE

All students must receive financial clearance from the Financial Aid/Student Account offices. In order to receive financial clearance, students must have completed a Billing Contract and one of SC’s payment plans.  

**International Students Only - The I-20 form will not be issued until the student’s first semester is paid in full. Each subsequent semester must be paid in full - Fall semesters balances are due by July 15th, Spring semesters balances are due by December 15th.  Schedules will be dropped if the payment deadline(s) are not met.
