Payment Plans

To help families better afford APU’s distinctive education, the university offers payment plans to all traditional undergraduate students currently enrolled in a traditional undergraduate degree program.

Returning Students

APU offers students a 4-month or 5-month payment plan at no additional cost. Students will have an opportunity to choose which payment plan they would like to enroll in for the year. Deadlines for selecting a payment plan will be communicated to students through their APU assigned email address. Students are responsible for selecting a payment plan through CASHNet by the deadline. Students that do not select a payment plan by the deadline will automatically be placed in the 4-month payment plan. Students that wish to be removed from a payment plan may pay their owing balance in full at any time.

Amount Due

Semester charges minus semester financial aid, divided by five or four payments for fall and spring, and two payments for summer.

Note: If the semester balance is not paid in full by the last due date, students will not be permitted to register for the next semester.

APU realizes that extenuating circumstances may sometimes impact a student’s ability to complete the semester. After a student begins attendance in a term and then stops attending all of his or her classes during the term, depending on the circumstances, it may be classified as a “withdrawal,” “leave of absence,” or “dismissal” from the university. For the purposes of charges assessed and financial aid eligibility, a leave of absence and a dismissal will be handled the same as a withdrawal from the university.
