Past Due Internal Payment Plan

Montclair State University offers an interest-free, payment arrangement for former students with an outstanding balance prior to an account sent to an external collection agency. The internal payment plan is not available for the current semesters.We strive to assist students resolve their balances to avoid accounts from being transferred to an outside collection agency. The payment plan allows you to spread payment of tuition, mandatory fees, and room and board over a 12-36 month time. Student accounts will not be assessed monthly late payment fees while enrolled in the payment plan for amounts covered by the plan.

  •   It is your responsibility to complete the Payment Plan Form in its entirety and remit with your first payment. If payment is not received, the payment plan will be considered invalid.
  • Establishing a payment plan does not constitute release of holds and/or transcripts until the balance is satisfied in full. There are no exceptions.  

  • Payments on the payment plan are due on the 15th of every month. 

  • The balance must not be for a current semester.  

  • Length of payment plans are listed below based on your balance.
