Calvin offers payment plans that allow students and their parents to spread out annual university costs, including tuition, fees, room and board.
Know your Payment Plan options
If you select a payment plan after August 8th the first statement available on August 10th will be for a full pay plan. Each Wednesday following August 7th through August 28th new statements will be generated for those students who select a payment plan. Students can choose from three Payment Plan schedules:
- Pay in full each semester, no additional fee
- Two payments per semester, $60 non-refundable fee charged each semester
- Four payments per semester, $60 non-refundable fee charged each semester
Choose a Payment Plan
If you are planning to pay the semester in full there is no need for any further action. Paying in full will be the default payment plan for everyone unless a payment plan is selected.
For students choosing the two or four payment plan, plan enrollment is completed online in the Student Billing & Payment Center. You will be asked to pay the Fall semester's payment plan fee of $60 when you enroll. The $60 Spring semester fee will be billed to your Miscellaneous Charges Account in December with payment due on January 5th.
Parents will need their student(s) to set them up as authorized users before accessing the Student Billing & Payment Center .

Students may set up parents and guardians as authorized users of the Student Billing & Payment Center. This will enable parents to access this tool with their own username and password to view statements, store banking information in a secure spot, schedule repeating payments, make a one time payment, and have access to payment history.
