Tuition Payment Plan

Spring 2016

 Tuition Payment Plan administered by Higher One

Montclair State University offers payment plans through Higher One. This is a self-monitored payment plan. All students are responsible for ensuring their contracts are correct and payments are up to date. Students can enroll for 1 semester at a time. This plan is interest free and available for a modest fee. Enrollment is available for a limited time. This is NOT a loan.

To avoid a late fee in the spring with Higher One & Montclair State University, you must ensure your payment plan is established by January 24, 2016; monthly payments are made on time and your budget contract amount is enough to cover your total due to the University. 

Please refer to our Payment Deadlines so you may plan accordingly. Past due balances may not be included as part of the plan. The University will cancel these payment plans.


 All payments are due the 1st of every month, Final Payment is due March 1, 2016.

  • 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 & HigherOne accounts.

  • 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 dates outlined in the contract, Higher One & MSU will assess a late fee and may terminate your account. You will then be responsible for paying MSU in full.

  • 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.

  • A delinquent or under-budget payment plan may be subject to a late fee, if the balance due to Montclair State University is not satisfied in full by March 1, 2016.

  • Due to privacy reasons, we cannot disclose any information to anyone other than the student.  If the student would like our offices to disclose information to another party, he/she will need to come to our office and complete a FERPA form.
