Payment Plans

Tuition Installment Plan


The Tuition Installment Plan (TIP) enables students or their families to pay interest-free monthly installments on their account toward their tuition, fees, room and board expenses. Enrollment is quick, easy and affordable for students and families.

Many students and families find monthly installments more manageable than one lump payment each semester. The installment plan is not a loan. Therefore, there are no credit checks. It is available for the fall and spring semesters for four and three monthly installments and two installments for the summer term. This payment plan is not available for the winter session. You can schedule automatic monthly payments right from your personal checking or savings account. Students need to enroll each semester for the payment plan. There is a small enrollment fee of $25 each semester. Late payments may result in additional fees.


You will be able to enroll in the TIP plan starting November 10, 2017 for the Spring 2018 semester.  You must be registered and have charges on your account to enroll in the TIP plan. You can enroll directly on-line in the Bill+Payment Center at To log in, please enter your student-id# [855#] as your University ID and your student PIN. Your default PIN is your birthday (mmddyy) unless you changed it.  If you need assistance logging in, please contact the HELP desk at 973-720-HELP during office hours. Select "Enroll in a Payment Plan". 

Authorized Users:

The student can authorize a parent or third party to view their billing statement, enroll in TIP and pay bills on-line by going to the Bill+Payment Student Account Center. The student must click "Authorized User" to set up a parent or third party for access.

If you plan to enroll in TIP, you must enroll on or before your payment due date to secure your class schedule.  Once you enroll in TIP, you can disregard the payment due date that appears on your billing statement since your payments will be made monthly. 

Fall and Spring semesters 

Please be aware that if you enroll in TIP at the "end" of the month, you will be required to make the first payment at the time of enrollment. Your 2nd payment will then be due on the "1st" of the month. (For example, if you enroll in TIP on 12/31/17 and make your first payment at the time enrollment, your next payment will be due on 1/1/18.)

If you elect to "schedule" your monthly payments through your bank account or by credit card, your checking or savings account or credit card will be automatically debited on the 1st day of month.
