Installment Payment Plan

Students by Main 

The University offers a payment plan option to assist students in paying their balance. The Installment Payment Plan application is only for tuition and fees.

Eligibility Criteria

To qualify for an Installment Payment Plan, a person must:

  • be a current student of UTB
  • be free of any outstanding financial balance with UTB
  • be registered for a minimum of three credit hours, and
  • have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 and a minimum completion rate of 70 percent or higher.

The completion rate is determined by dividing number of semester credit hours (SCH) completed by the number of semester credit hours attempted. For example: A student completes 21 SCHs of the 24 SCHs attempted (21/24 = .875). The completion rate for this student is 87.5%
