Although all charges are due and payable in full at the beginning of each term, students in good financial standing at ETSU may request deferment of up to 75% of their tuition, fees and housing for fall and spring semesters. Deferment of fees is not available for summer terms.

ELIGIBILITY:

  • Minimum down payment of 25% of tuition, fees, dorm rent, and dining plan.
  • Any outstanding prior term balances must be paid in full before enrolling in the current term installment plan.
  • No late payments in previous semesters.
  • All financial aid received including student loans must be applied before deferment is allowed.

TERMS:

  • You must enroll in the payment plan using Goldlink.
  • Financial aid (including all grants, loans, and scholarships) can not be used as the initial down payment for the installment plan.
  • Deferred amount is payable in four monthly installments. The initial down payment is due on or before the fee payment deadline for the term.
  • Sept 15, Oct 15, and Nov 15 for fall term.
  • Feb 15, Mar 15, and April 15 for spring term.
  • Payments are due whether or not you receive a reminder notice.

SERVICE CHARGES AND FINES:

  • A $50.00 late fee will be assessed on the 10th day after the published installment due date if the installment is not paid (maximum charge of $200.00 per term).
  • The University will withhold services including grades, transcripts, and future registration until all fees including late fees are paid in full.
  • All existing rules and policies pertaining to returned checks, refunds, withdrawals, dropped classes, and collection costs are applicable to the deferred payment policy.
  • EXAMPLE: This example is based upon an in-state full time undergraduate freshman student living in a double room for the fall 2017 term. The fees listed are an estimate and subject to be changed by the Tennessee Board of Regents.
