Payment Plan

Students and/or authorized users must pay their semester balance in full by the first due date OR select the semester payment plan each semester the student is enrolled. Failure to pay in full OR enroll in the payment plan by the enrollment deadline will result in the student account being placed into the Default Plan and a $200 non-refundable setup fee will be assessed to the account. Students and authorized users that have been given access* will receive monthly email reminders ahead of their payment due date.

If anticipated financial aid exceeds the total charges on your student account, you will not have a balance due and therefore, are not required to enroll in the payment plan.


Summer 2024 payment plan enrollment will begin on April 19, 2024. To enroll, students may access TouchNet by navigating to the Financial Tile in myZou. TouchNet authorized users may access TouchNet via the authorized user link.

Additional InfoStudents who have a third-party sponsor paying on their behalf but will NOT have their authorization submitted before the first due date each semester will need to enroll in the semester payment plan to prevent being placed into the Default Payment Plan.

Failure to pay in full OR sign up for the payment plan by the enrollment deadline will result in the student account being placed in a default plan. The plan consists of three installment payments in Fall and Spring and two installments in Summer, and will be assessed a higher set-up fee. Students and authorized users given access* will receive monthly email reminders ahead of their payment due date

*Authorized users will only receive notifications about payment plans if the student has granted this access in TouchNet. To ensure that your authorized user has been set up to receive notifications, follow these steps:

  • Log into your TouchNetopen_in_new account.
  • Navigate to the authorized user setup under “My Profile Setup.”
  • Click the “Action” icon next to the name of your authorized user.
  • Select “Yes” next to the “Would you like to allow this person to receive your payment plan communications?”

**Installment amounts are subject to change and will increase/decrease as new charges are added to accounts. Installments will NOT increase within 14 calendar days of any due date.

***All payments made towards student balances will apply to the oldest charges on accounts first. If you have a balance due on your student account prior to the payment plan term, your payment will apply towards the oldest balance first, and your installments for the current term will be recalculated. This includes any “Scheduled” payments on the payment plan.
