Available to all students.
Monthly Payment Plans
All Stevens students are eligible to enroll in the monthly payment plans administered by Tuition Management Systems (TMS). The plans
cover all billable expenses, including tuition and fees. The plan is interest free, and a small fee is required for program participation ($80 per year or $50 per semester). The amount due for the year or semester is divided into monthly payments and must be paid in full by the end of the academic year or semester.
Deferred Payment Plan
Stevens offers a deferred payment plan that allows you to pay your tuition and fees in two installments. There is a $65 fee for this plan. The first payment is due at the beginning of the semester, and the second is due November 1 (fall semester) or March 1 (spring semester).
Stevens accepts payment by credit card, including MasterCard, American Express and Discover
Corporate Tuition Options
In many cases, companies offer tuition reimbursement or other methods of subsidizing their employees' education. Students are encouraged to check with their employers to determine whether these options are available to them.
- Corporate Tuition Reimbursement Plan
Some employers have tuition reimbursement plans for which their employees may be eligible. Students pay their tuition at the beginning of the semester, and receive reimbursements from their employer after the semester’s grades are received. Students expecting company reimbursements may participate in private funding sources, as
well as the TMS monthly payment plan, or deferred payment plan.
- Corporate Extended Payment Plan
A Corporate Extended Payment Plan is available to students whose companies offer tuition reimbursement. To enroll, students should complete the Stevens Corporate Extended Payment Plan Form, provide a letter of support from their company stating its willingness to reimburse upon receipt of semester grades, and a $100 fee. Full payment is expected prior to the beginning of the next semester of study or graduation.
Forms are available at www.stevens.edu/registrar/forms/ExtendedPaymentPlan.pdf.
- Corporate Sponsored Tuition
AT&T, ITT, Unilever Bestfoods, Verizon, and Verizon Wireless already participate in this third-party payment plan, in which students may arrange to have their company pay their tuition directly to Stevens. We welcome additional companies to set up Corporate Sponsored Tuition, and encourage students to check with their employers and human resources departments to see if this arrangement is an option.
