Installment Payment

The University of Alabama in Huntsville offers two Installment Payment programs in which students can defer payment of a portion of their tuition and fees to be paid at a later date:

Eligible for Deferment

  • Tuition
  • College and Lab Fees
  • Housing Rent
  • Meal Tickets

Certain miscellaneous fees such as late payment fees, late registration fees, health insurance and past due balances are not eligible for deferment and must be paid in full with the first payment.

Depending on which plan you participate in, one-half to one-fourth of your current semester balance, AFTER financial aid and third party sponsorships are deducted, plus a non-refundable Installment Plan fee and any miscellaneous charges are due in full by the first official day of the semester along with a completed Installment Plan contract signed by the student.

You may not use financial aid or third party sponsorships as your first payment.

What else should I know?

Installment Payment forms are only available for a limited time each semester. Usually the Bursar's Office will not accept Installment Plan requests after the last day students can add classes to their schedules - typically one week after the semester begins. If you register for all of your classes after the semester begins you may still sign up for the Installment Plan if you make your request within 24-48 hours after registering.

*** Remember, if you fail to pay the first installment in full by the due date your class schedule could be canceled.***
