The American Payment Plan is an alternative method to paying your bill in convenient monthly payments.

American Payment Plan Overview

American University offers the American Payment Plan (APP) as an alternative to paying the bill by splitting the balance into convenient monthly payments, with no added interest. 

A plan will be assigned according to the designated enrollment period in which the application is received.

E-mail notifications with detailed Payment Plan information will be sent to students shortly after enrollment period application deadline. Payment Plan information will become available for review and payments can be made online at this same time

 

A new application will be required for each academic session should you wish to participate during the academic year.

 

How to Enroll:

Students must be registered and all current balances and prior term balances must be paid in full at the time of application. Students may view their accounts at any time by accessing Eagle Service. Please use this information for your application.

There is a $40 non-refundable application fee due each semester ($20 for Kogod and Law 4-term online sessions). You must re-apply each semester.

Payments can be made in the Student Portal through Eagle Service by: eChecks (U.S. checking or savings account) or credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover).

Checks must be mailed to the following address:

American University-Student Accounts
Attn: American Payment Plan (APP)

Applications will be processed according to the enrollment period in which they are received. We reserve the right to assign a plan if an application is received outside the enrollment period for the plan indicated.

American University reserves the right to calculate installments based on account balances at the time of enrollment. It is the participant's responsibility to monitor their accounts and installment amounts. Insufficient installment payments are subject to a $40 late fee. Students may review their payment plans 24 hours a day through Eagle Service.

All correspondence, including confirmations of enrollment and payment reminders, are sent to the student's AU email address and parent/proxy email address. Payment reminders are sent electronically two weeks before each payment due date.

Payments are due the 1st of each month. A $40 late fee is assessed for each late or insufficient payment.

Accounts missing two or more payments will be canceled from the plan and full payment becomes due immediately.

Any additional account balance remaining after the final payment due date becomes due immediately per university guidelines.

All delinquent balances (including balances due outside of a payment plan and balances due as a result of cancellation from the plan) are subject to a monthly 0.5% finance charge and financial restriction per university guidelines.

By submitting the application you are agreeing to the above Terms and Conditions.
