Methods of Payment
1. Federal Financial Aid
Students whose method of tuition payment is federal financial aid should complete
the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
Most students who apply for Federal Financial Aid (Stafford Loan) via the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) are eligible for $20,500 per academic year in loans. The awarded amount is divided into two semesters - fall and spring. Once awarded, the funds can be declined, decreased or accepted in the amount awarded. The amount of tuition covered by the financial aid is deferred until the aid award is disbursed.
View the FAU Financial Aid database for additional information.
2. Tuition Reimbursement
A copy of your company tuition reimbursement policy is required by our office. We will provide information to you required by your Department of Human Resources.
Students who are using full or partial tuition reimbursement as their method of payment receive a grade sheet and invoice or receipt at the end of each semester.
The amount of tuition covered by the tuition reimbursement policy is deferred and should be received up to 30 days after the end of each semester.
Students with partial tuition reimbursement declare a supplemental method of tuition payment. e.g. financial aid or self pay, which covers the remaining tuition.
3. Self- Pay Installments
A payment plan is provided for students who select the self-pay method. There are 4 payment installments in the fall and spring semesters, and 3 payment installments in the summer semester.
4. Private Lending
Private, credit-based lending is accepted by the university to assist students with covering full or partial tuition and fees. Lending companies include banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions. Students are advised to consult with the lending company regarding specific eligibility requirements, interest rates, disbursement options, repayment terms, and other factors.
5. Military/ Veterans Benefits
Students using the GI Bill must complete the VA Certification Request form with all required documents. Upon approval, an FAU VA Official will certify eligibility for funding each semester after being registered for degree-seeking courses and based on continued eligibility. Refer to www.fau.edu/vets for further details, instructions, and resources.
6. Combination of Payment Methods
Upon departmental approval, students can declare any combination of tuition payment methods.
