Payment Plans

College of DuPage provides students the opportunity to make payments throughout the semester via one of our affordable payment plans. COD offers Active Payment Plans for students paying out of pocket and Deferred Payment Plans for students utilizing financial aid and/or finalizing financial aid paperwork*. All payment plan options require a down payment. The earlier you enroll in a payment plan, the lower the required down payment.


Enrollment Benefits

  • Pay your student account balance in convenient monthly installments
  • Set up automatic payments using a credit card, debit card, or electronic check
  • Receive email reminders about upcoming payments
  • Ability to opt into text alerts
