Pay-As-You-Go Plan Payment Dates

Pay-As-You-Go payments can be made at any time, but you must purchase a minimum of one tuition unit of any type to establish a contract and subsequent payments must be $15 or more. Units are purchased at the sales price in effect for the type of units you select at the time your payment is received.

Payment Methods

There are four ways to add Tuition Units to a contract:

  • Set up direct deposit payments from your checking or savings account
  • Pay via electronic funds transfer (Direct Deposit ACH payment)
  • Mail a check, money order, or cashier’s check with a payment coupon
  • Payroll deduction if your employer offers that option

Unit sales prices are updated effective September 1 of each year to reflect any changes in undergraduate resident tuition and required fees at Texas public colleges and universities.

There is a one-time nonrefundable $25 administrative (application) fee to enroll in the Plan. This administrative fee is charged only once per unique Purchaser/Beneficiary combination. If you, the Purchaser, have an existing account for the same Beneficiary, the administrative fee is waived for additional accounts.

There may also be fees for late payments, returned payments, wire transfers, overnight deliveries and other special requests.
