To help make paying for a Geneva education more manageable, the Business Office of Geneva College has announced the addition of two new services available to full-time undergraduate students -payment plans with extended payment terms and a new option for purchasing textbooks with excess student account balances.

"The Business Office has initiated these programs as part of our effort to make things easier and more convenient for our students and their parents," explains Associate Vice President and Controller Stephen Ross.

Geneva College now offers new student payment plan options with extended time to pay. These plans allow tuition to be paid in interest-free monthly installments instead of one lump sum. And a payment plan can be used on its own or combined with financial aid and student loans. The new payment options with extended payment time are as follows:

  • 12-MONTH PLAN-12 monthly payments beginning April 15, 2011 through March 15, 2012
  • 11-MONTH PLAN-11 monthly payments beginning May 15, 2011 through March 15, 2012
  • 10-MONTH PLAN-10 monthly payments beginning June 15, 2011 through March 15, 2012
  • 9-MONTH PLAN-9 monthly payments beginning July 15, 2011 through March 15, 2012

The old six-month payment plan is still available, but does not allow for extended payment terms. Payments for the six-month term begin August 15, 2011 with the final payment due January 15, 2012.

Payment plans are administered through Sallie Mae® and application and other fees may apply. The plans are only available to full-time undergraduate students and must include tuition, room and board for both the fall and spring semesters.

Also, beginning in the 2011 fall semester, full-time traditional undergraduate students can use 70% of the overall credit balance from their student account to purchase textbooks in the campus bookstore. The overall credit balance includes the account with tuition, room and board charges as well as with parking permits, tickets and chapel fine charges. Funds from Parent Plus loans are excluded. Under this program, textbooks must be purchased no later than the end of the first week of classes.
