Once a payment plan is established, you must make payment directly through Higher One. Do not make payments directly to MSU unless your plan was canceled or terminated.

If you choose to enroll in a payment plan, it is the student’s responsibility to check his/her MSU WESS student account. 

If your payment plan account is under-budget, a registration and transcript hold will be placed onto your account which may prevent registration and/or release of your transcript.

If at any time you have new charges posted to your account, such as fines, tuition, room and board, etc., you must contact Higher One (1-800-635-0120) and adjust your budget.

 If a payment is not made by the due date, Higher One will terminate your account. You will then be responsible for paying MSU in full.
