Frequently Asked Questions About The Tuition Payment Plan


1. If payments are made automatically from my bank account, does that mean the college has direct access to my account?

No. This is a common misconception about automatic payments. No one other than your own financial institution has access to your bank account. When you arrange automatic payments through TMS, you have authorized a specific amount to be paid on a predetermined date each month.

2. When will payments begin?

After your agreement is received by TMS, you will receive a letter or e-mail confirming the monthly payment amount and when the payment is to begin. Payments will be processed on the same date each month until the total balance is paid in full. The letter will also serve as a reminder that a  nonrefundable enrollment fee will be processed from the account indicated on the agreement.

3. What if a payment was declined by my financial institution?

For each returned payment, you will be assessed a $25 returned payment fee. Please note, your financial institution may also assess you a fee. Returned payment fees are automatically deducted from the account you have provided. If your returned payment fee is returned, it will be reattempted. Returned payment fees are payable to TMS.

4. How are my payments affected if my tuition balance changes?

Increases made to your account balance 10 business days prior to the 5th of the month will be reflected in your next monthly payment. If your account balance increases less then 10 business days prior to the 5th of the month, your next monthly payment will not be increased.

Decreases made to your account balance 5 business days prior to the 5th of the month will be reflected in your next monthly payment. If your account balance decreases less than 5 business days prior to the 5th of the month, your next monthly payment will not be reduced. Subsequent payments will be adjusted accordingly.

5. Can I make changes to my TMS account information?


Yes. Call TMS at (800) 337-0291 to make any changes to your address, phone or banking information. Go to dcc.afford.com and login to manage your TMS Payment Plan online.
