Northeastern University offers monthly payment plans, which are administered through Tuition Management Systems (TMS).
The monthly payment plan allows you to divide your educational costs into smaller, more manageable, installments. In using this plan, it can reduce your need to borrow, thereby, reducing the overall cost of education and can be combined with your financial aid award or other financing options. Because the payment plan is not a loan, you do not have to pay interest, only an enrollment fee of $35 per term. To enroll in a payment plan, or learn more, please visit northeastern.afford.com or contact Tuition Management Systems at 855.217.0551.
Note: Check or E-check are the accepted methods of payment with monthly payment plans. Please note, TMS monthly payment plans cannot be used for past due balances.

In those situations where the tuition is paid directly to the university by a third party, the student must provide the Office of Student Accounts with a purchase order or a written statement of intent to pay by the third party no later than the end of the first week of classes. If there are stipulations associated with the payment agreement, such as a minimum grade level, then the student must either pay the university directly or enroll in one of the payment options.
Documentation can be provided via:
Many companies, embassies and agencies directly reimburse students for their educational expenses upon successful completion of courses. In these situations, the student is responsible for paying the bill at the beginning of the term or selecting another payment option. Tuition may not be left unpaid pending reimbursement by a third party.
