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, Deferred Payment Plans for students utilizing financial aid, and Incomplete FA Payment Plans for students with outstanding 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.

Students who register for fall 2019 classes and enroll in a monthly payment plan before May 31, 2019 may be eligible for payment plans with down payments as low as 10% and up to 6 payment dates.

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

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 the student account, and the student may be dropped from his/her classes for the amount owed.

Student Email

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