Installment Payment Plans

For those who are unable to pay their tuition in full prior to class start date, Southwestern offers a payment plan option. A non-refundable fee per semester will be assessed for all payment plans. The standard payment plan allows payment over five months in the semester (August-December for fall; January-May for spring) and over three months in the summer (May-July).
