Monthly Payment Plan

We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to apply for the Monthly Payment Plan for your study abroad. The monthly payment plan is available to fall or spring program participants only. We hope the following steps will aid you in the application process and provide you with additional information on how the plan works. There is an annual non-refundable application fee of $75, which will be billed to your account and calculated into your monthly payments. The plan may be utilized for one semester only or for both the fall and spring semesters. You may pay the full balance at any time and cancel your payment plan, although the $75 fee is non-refundable. The payment plan application can be found at the Office of the Bursar.

How the plan works

You will be billed monthly. Syracuse Abroad calculates your monthly payment amount by taking all tuition, program fee, and course fee charges currently posted to your account minus all payments, financial aid, and other credits currently posted to your account. The remainder is then divided by the number of months you will be making payments, which is typically 5 for fall (first bill is sent in June) and 5 (for visiting students) or 6 (for Syracuse University students) for spring (first bill is sent in November), although it can be fewer depending upon when you enroll in the plan.

Payment amounts can change month to month based on increases or decreases in charges, financial aid, or other credits. Subsequent bills will be calculated based on the new balance and the number of months remaining on the plan as of the date of billing.

Bills printed before account adjustments are processed will not automatically recalculate a revised amount due. If you plan to pay less than the billed amount due to a change in charges or financial aid, please call Bursar Operations immediately at (315) 443-2444 so that we can take action to prevent a past due amount from showing on your next bill.

All program fee changes must be made through Syracuse Abroad. The Bursar’s office will not process changes to your payment plan until changes have been approved by Syracuse Abroad.
