On-Line Deferment Plan Set Up:
GVSU offers a deferment plan that covers all current semester charges on the student account after financial aid has been applied. Past due balances cannot be included in the deferment plan and must be paid on or before the payment due date. There is a $40.00 non-refundable fee to utilize the payment plan. The account balance will be broken down into four monthly installments each semester. You need to make a payment on or before each due date. The payment does not automatically come out of your account as we do not save your financial information for security reasons.
When you are ready to make your first installment follow the steps below:
Note: You cannot setup your payment plan without making your first installment.

* If by the payment due date, you have made a partial payment which is 25% or more of your account balance, you will be placed on an installment plan and charged a $40.00 non-refundable fee. If it is not your intention to pay by installments, please make sure that your entire balance is paid by the payment due date.
Any charges unpaid by the statement due date will result in a hold on your account and prevent registration activity. Late fees in the amount of 1% will be assessed each month on the past due balance. Delinquent accounts will be sent to a collection agency and will be placed on your credit report. You will be responsible to pay all late fees, cost of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 35% of the debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees we incur in such collection efforts. All payments that are returned by the bank are subject to a $20 returned check fee. Returned payments made towards tuition or a past semester charge could result in class cancellation if not paid in a timely manner. If a check is returned for insufficient funds we may present it to the bank electronically.
