AMS Payment Plan (see below) Full payment or AMS payment plan is due to the Student Accounts Office by the end of the first week of the term or you will be dropped from the class.

PAYMENT PLAN - AMS WHAT IS AMS? AMS (Academic Management Services) is an education financing company that provides families and students with a low cost plan for budgeting tuition and other education expenses. The Tuition Pay Monthly plan is NOT a loan program, therefore no debt is incurred. There is no interest or finance charge assessed by AMS on the unpaid balance due to the college. The only fee to budget payments through AMS is a $35.00 per semester non-refundable enrollment fee. Payments made through AMS are considerably less expensive than the cost of obtaining loans, paying with credit cards, or budgeting through other interest or fee-charging payment plans. There is no credit search or qualifications necessary to use AMS. One of the reasons why the cost to budget with AMS is so affordable is because payments through AMS are made by using automatic payments from your bank. The automatic payment helps you budget tuition payments in a convenient way which ensures that the college will receive dependable and consistent tuition payments. With AMS you never miss a payment and you save the time and expense of writing and mailing checks. HOW DOES THE AUTOMATIC PAYMENT WORK? Automatic payments are simply payments that you authorize your bank to make on your behalf on a specific date each month. The amount paid by your bank is a predetermined amount that you have authorized. Your bank will make these payments from either your checking or savings account, according to the instructions you have provided on your agreement with AMS. Payments will be made until the total amount due to the college is paid in full. Automatic payments are

used to pay mortgages, life insurance premiums, car payments, utilities, and other types of bills. When you use AMS to pay your school tuition, your bank sends your payment on the 5th of the month directly to the bank that AMS uses to collect tuition payments. Before any payment is made, AMS provides evidence of your authorization for tuition payments to your bank. Your bank will usually verify this authorization with you and then set up the payment schedule. It is important to remember that AMS and your college never see your bank account or have any direct access to your account. You never lose any control of your account. The automatic payment process is strictly controlled by state and federal laws. With AMS your payments are made on the 5th of each month. BUDGET PERIOD To qualify for the 3-month payment plan, AMS must receive student applications by August 10th for the fall semester or December 10th for the Spring semester. The budget period is August through October for the fall semester and January through March for the spring semester. The AMS payment plan is not available for courses offered during the summer semester.
