Tuition Pay Plan

Affordability is a major focus at Shawnee State and we work hard to keep tuition low and to help families find a way to pay for college.

We encourage you to have your financial aid in place early and to be aware of payment due dates that could affect your continued enrollment at Shawnee State.

If you are not able to pay your balance in full by the due date, Shawnee State provides a payment plan that allows you to spread the cost of tuition and fees over the semester.

How the Pay Plan Works:

  • If the full balance on your student account is not received by the Student Business Center by the end-of-business on the payment due date, you will automatically be enrolled in a pay plan.
  • There is no application fee for participation in a pay plan.
  • A fee will be assessed for each late payment (See "Payment Due Dates" below)
  • Financial Aid (Loan, Grants, Scholarships) cannot be used for your minimum or pay plan payments.
  • 529 Plan payments can be used as your minimum and pay plan payments.
