Payment Plans

The UCONN Office of the Bursar has transitioned to a new payment platform powered by Flywire. The new payment system will provide users with robust features and a simple design that makes it easier than ever to navigate the sometimes stressful and confusing process of making education payments.

Students who enroll in the payment plan will see a positive service indicator () on their account noting that they are active in the payment plan. This service indicator will NOT prevent any University services and is primarily a note to identify the account.

Payment Plans

Educational expenses can be easier to manage when spread over predictable monthly payments. UCONN offers interest-free payment plans as an alternative to one large payment to help limit loan borrowing and ease financial pressures. Students and designated authorized users may contribute to a payment plan to pay for eligible student charges.

Payment plans are available during fall and spring semesters only. 

Some of the features of our payment plans include:

  • 24x7 self-service account access to view and manage active payment plans via StudentAdmin.
  • The ability for students to add one or more authorized users to have access to their account to make payments toward a payment plan, or enroll in a payment plan on behalf of their student.

Eligibility

  • All students who owe more than $300 for the current term qualify.
  • Authorized Users can enroll in a payment plan on behalf of their student.
  • Students and Authorized Users must be willing to allow automatic withdrawals from a personal U.S. checking account or scheduled charges to debit or credit card.
  • The student account must be in good standing. If the student has past due balances, he or she must first pay off their outstanding balance.

Payment Plan Ownership

Students or one of the student's Authorized Users can enroll in a Payment Plan.  If the student enrolls, the student is owner of the plan; if an Authorized User enrolls, that individual is the owner of the plan.  This is important because only the owner of the plan can change the payment method.  Both the student and ALL of the student’s Authorized Users will receive Payment Plan notifications by email.

    Payment Plan Set Up

    Enrolling in a payment plan is simple, and students can quickly set up a payment plan by following the steps below.

    • Once logged in, navigate to the Payment Plans tab to view the payment plan options available to you.
    • Select the payment plan option that best meets your needs.
    • Add your preferred payment method and activate the plan.

    Payment Plan Cost

    There is a $100 non-refundable sign-up fee for the Fall and Spring plans. The sign-up fee is deducted from your bank account or charged to your debit or credit card as soon as you complete the enrollment process.

    Payment plans available for Fall term

    Students who enroll in a payment plan from June through July 20th may split their balance into the following equal installments:

    • 5 installments due 7/20, 8/20, 9/20, 10/20, 11/20
    • 4 installments due 7/20, 8/20, 9/20, 10/20
    • 3 installments due 7/20, 8/20, 9/20

    Students who enroll in a payment plan after July 20th through August 20th  may split their balance into the following equal installments:

    • 4 installments due 8/20, 9/20, 10/20, 11/20
    • 3 installments due 8/20, 9/20, 10/20

    Students who enroll in a payment plan after August 20th through September 20th may split their balance into the following equal installments:

    • 3 installments due 9/20, 10/20, 11/20

    Changing your Payment Method

    Only the Payment Plan owner has the ability to change the payment method. To do so, the owner should:

    1. Once logged in, select the Payment Plans tab
    2. Click on the Manage autopay button, then change or update the payment method for upcoming installments
    3. Any changes or updates to the Payment Method must be completed no later than one calendar day before the date of the scheduled automatic installment.

    For example, if a payment is scheduled for October 5 and the Payment Plan owner would like to change the bank account the automatic installment payment will be drawn from, he or she must do so by midnight, Eastern Time, on October 4. Otherwise, the installment payment will be drawn from the old bank account instead of the new one.

    Multiple Payment Plans

    Students can have only one active payment plan at a time during an academic term. Even if a student has more than one Authorized User, they may only have one payment plan for a payment plan period. For example, two Authorized Users cannot both have a fall term Payment Plan for the same student.

    If a student does not enroll prior to the fee bill due date of August 1st for the fall term, they may receive a hold and/or late fees. Students may not enroll in a payment plan after September 20th 

    If a student fails to make two (2) or more installment payments OR misses their 10/20 payment, they will be dropped from the plan and their delinquent balance will be due immediately which will result in a hold being placed on their account and subject to late fees.

    Payment Plan Rebalancing

    • Since you can enroll in a Payment Plan before your enrollment is finalized, your payment plan may fluctuate to match your student account balance.  Periodically, we will adjust your Payment Plan Balance to match the student account balance. This process is called rebalancing and it happens multiple times between the 1st and 10th of each month.  
    • If your student account balance increases after the 10th of the month, your Payment Plan Balance will rebalance and increase for the following month’s installment
    • If your student account decreases after the 10th of the month, your Payment Plan Balance will rebalance and decrease for your installment on the 20th of that same month.    
    • The rebalancing process automatically subtracts anticipated financial aid displayed on the Account Summary and Account Activity tabs when it calculates your Payment Plan balance.  Please note that although automatic rebalancing does not happen daily, rest assure your account will adjust correctly.
    • ImportantShould a one-time payment, scholarship or any financial aid apply to a student account after the Plan was already created, that payment does not apply to the next Payment Plan installment amount.  Instead, the entire plan rebalances and decreases all your remaining installments.

      Authorized Users

      Becoming an Authorized User is a very important step to becoming involved and staying informed about your student's University fee bill. 

      Note, Authorized Users do not receive e-bill notifications for the summer and winter sessions.

      Students are able to grant one or more authorized users access to their financial information, including the ability to view charges on the account, pay the bill, or enroll in a payment plan. An authorized user can be parent/guardian, family member, employer, or any other person the student wishes to have access to their account. Adding an authorized user to an account is quick and easy.

      Path #1: Authorized User Requests Access

      • Authorized User selects “Create New Account” on the Flywire homepage: https://uconn.myonplanu.com/login.
      • Click “No” when asked if you are a current of former student.
      • Authorized User completes the “Create Your Authorized User Account” (name, email, password).
      • Next, the Authorized User receives an email to verify his/her email address and to activate the account.
      • The Authorized User is prompted to login to Flywire with email address/password.
      • The Authorized User is required to verify the student’s ID number and date of birth.
      • Flywire sends an email to the student indicating that the Authorized User has requested access to the student’s account in flywire.
      • Once approved, the Authorized User receives notification that the Authorized User has been established.
      • If the student does not approve, the AU account will remain in pending status.

      Path #2: Student adds an Authorized User to his/her account in Flywire

      • Students may simply login and proceed to SA Self Service> Student Homepage > Bursar Services tile > Pay Bill & Authorize Users.
      • Once directed into the Flywire site, select the “Manage Authorized Users” option from the “Actions” menu at the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
      • The student selects the option to add an Authorized User.
      • The student will enter the name and email address for the Authorized User.
      • Then, an email will be sent to the individual whom the student set up.
      • The Authorized User can then select a password to accompany the email address as the login credentials.
      • After successful login, the Authorized User will then be able to view the student’s account in Flywire.

      Canceling/ Editing Payment Plans

      If you wish to cancel your current payment plan for any reason, please contact our office in writing to cancel your plan. Please note, the $100 enrollment is non-refundable.

      Once a student enrolls in a payment plan, we are unable to change the plan. The student may wish to cancel the plan and then enroll in a new plan. Please note, the student will be assessed the $100 enrollment fee for each time they enroll.
