Payment Plan

Assisting students and families in meeting their financial needs is one of our biggest concerns. Students and parents can benefit from our Payment Plan as an alternative to traditional tuition payment arrangements. 

The Payment Plan can help you avoid additional borrowing by allowing you to make monthly payments. The less you have to borrow now means the less you will have to pay back later!

Emory & Henry now administers the payment plan internally rather than through a third-party based on our continued commitment to helping our students attain quality education affordably. The College offers a 4-month plan or a 5-month plan for each semester. Students electronically sign to consent. Payments are made each month by the student or the parent through under Payment Plans. To access this information, the student must be logged into their E&H account or have provided Proxy Access to a parent or guardian to make payment on their behalf.

All Financial Aid (Student Loans and Parent Plus Loans if applicable) should be completed as soon as possible or before the first day of classes for the most accurate billing. For questions regarding anticipated aid, please contact There is a $25 sign-up fee for each term. The student will receive notifications when payments are not made or fall behind.

Please make sure you have your most accurate budget amount from the college prior to enrolling in a payment plan. Students have access to view financial aid awarded for the upcoming year either with an award letter (either mailed or emailed to you from Financial Aid) at the Financial Aid and Financial Accounts tabs of This is a preliminary estimate of the amount due for this upcoming fall term until after add/drop deadline.

No Interest Charges If Enrolled in a Payment Plan

The Emory & Henry Payment Plan provides a way to pay your educational expenses in easy monthly installments with no interest charges. By taking advantage of the Payment Plan, you can budget your costs to best fit your individual needs. If the student does not sign up for a payment plan, their account will be due in full by August 1 for the fall semester and January 1 for the spring semester. Interest will be charged on any unpaid balance.
