Payment Plans

College of DuPage provides you the opportunity to make payments throughout the semester via one of our affordable payment plans. COD offers Active Payment Plans if you are paying out of pocket, Deferred Payment Plans if you are anticipating financial aid or military benefits, and Incomplete FA Payment Plans if you have outstanding financial aid paperwork requiring your attention. All payment plan options require a down payment. The earlier you enroll in a payment plan, the lower the required down payment. 

Early Enrollment Benefits

Three benefits when you register for fall 2020 classes and enroll in a monthly payment plan before May 31, 2020:

  • $10 down payment
  • $25 payment plan enrollment fee is waived
  • Up to 6 payment dates 

Active Payment Plan Schedules

If you are paying out of pocket or you have been deemed ineligible for the Deferred Payment Plan, you may be eligible for the Active Payment Plan. A down payment and a $25 non-refundable set-up fee are due at the time of enrollment. If you register for fall 2020 classes and enroll in the monthly payment plan before May 31, 2020, the $25 enrollment fee is waived, and the down payment is only $10.

Incomplete FA Payment Plan Schedules

If you have outstanding financial aid documents requiring your attention, you may be eligible for the Incomplete FA Payment Plan. The Incomplete FA Payment Plan is a variation of the Active Payment Plan. If you enroll in this payment plan after the start of the term, you will have a down payment of 10% of your student account balance.

**Enrollment in this payment plan is granted to allow you additional time to finalize your financial aid. Your first payment is due before your funding posts. Once you complete the outstanding paperwork and are deemed eligible for financial aid, you must enroll in a new payment plan to prevent the first payment from being drawn. 

Late Payments

Payments are due on the scheduled payment dates outlined in the payment plan agreement. Failure to make payments in accordance with the payment plan agreement will result in a late fee of $30 assessed to your student account, and you may be dropped from your classes for the amount owed.

Student Email

Important communication regarding the payment plan will be sent to your student email address throughout the semester, some of which will be time sensitive.
