The Allegheny Tuition Payment Plan, administered by Tuition Management Systems (www.afford.com), is recommended to help families budget payments of the student’s educational expenses and to limit debt. This plan provides a convenient method for paying tuition, required fees, room and board in 10 monthly installments. It is available to parents of Allegheny students, and in some instances may be made available directly to students.
Application forms are available from the Financial Services Office, as well as at www.afford.com. Applications are also enclosed in the July mailing of bills for the Fall Semester. The completed application form should be returned with the first payment by August 1. While full-year participation is encouraged, applications are accepted for second semester if they are received before December 1. An $85 participation fee for the full year is charged and a $45 fee if paying by semester. There are no interest charges, but late payments are assessed a $35 late fee.
