Monthly Payment Plan

The convenience of paying educational expenses on a monthly basis is an attractive alternative to many families. if you need to use savings, current income, or loans, this option will make the payments easier. Loyola University Maryland has partnered with a commercial plan available through Nelnet/TMS, to offer an interest-free monthly payment service for a one-time annual enrollment fee. The service allows families to make payments on the balance owed over a 10-month period (Fall 2020, 5-month plan/Spring 2021, 5-month plan).
Please be advised that the monthly plan is semester based. You must enroll for each semester in which you want to participate.

The only cost for the Nelnet/TMS Monthly Payment Plan is a $40 per semester enrollment fee. You will make 5 monthly payments due on the 1st of each month from July - November (Fall 2020 semester) and December - April (Spring 2021 semester).

Once you have decided the amount you wish to pay on a monthly basis, enroll online at www.afford.com/loyola. The enrollment deadline is June 1, 2020 for the fall semester and November 1, 2020 for the spring semester. If you enroll prior to June or November, you will only need to pay the $40 enrollment fee.
