Payment Plans

Kutztown University is pleased to offer payment plans to help make paying for college easier and more affordable. 

ALL Payment Plan activity will occur in the Payment Plan Dashboard accessed from within MyKU or by using the link the parent receives with their Parent PIN initiated by the student in the Payment Plan Dashboard.  Payments made in MyKU will not be recorded towards a payment plan and will not set up a payment plan.

Access to the Payment Plan Dashboard

  • Log into MyKU > Student Center > Finances area and use the drop-down menu > Select Pay Plan Sign up/Pay
  • This is where students will sign up for payment plans, make payment plan payments AND create Parent PIN's for parents to have their own access to the Payment Plan Dashboard.

NOTE: ALL plan payments must be paid on the Payment Plan Dashboard to post to the plan and keep it in good standing.

Setting up a Plan - How much should this be?

  • Creating plans before the bills are ready is really easy.  One should take the estimated charges (undergraduate / graduate), less anticipated financial aid & scholarships and set the plan up for that amount.  Financial Aid includes loans, grants, scholarships and more.  Some loans have fees that will reduce the amount, this is minimal most of the time but can cause figures to look a little different.
    • Once the actual charges and aid are showing and billed (no sooner than July 18th for Fall), you can adjust your plan as needed right in the Payment Plan Dashboard.
  • Creating plans after the bills are ready should be set up for the conditional balance due.
  • Additional Charges OR Aid?  No problem! Simply adjust the plan amount right in the Payment Plan Dashboard - no fee to increase or decrease a plan
    • Increased plans may simply require another agreement be signed but no additional fee
  • Having trouble calculating what the plan should be set up for?  We are happy to help - call us (610-683-4133) or email us!

When does the payment show on MyKU?

  • For Summer Session 1 and 10W payments, these payments are downloaded to MyKU monthly from Tuition Pay - there may be a delay from when you pay them and see the payment on MyKU.  We will try to download more often during our busier seasons if possible. 
  • For Summer Session 2 and going forward - these payments will post from the Payment Plan Dashboard right into MyKU real time so you can see the adjusted amount due and compare with the plan and charges due as needed.

Payment Plans for International Students

  • We do offer Flywire for International Payments at this current time for payments in full but not with the payment plan.  We do anticipate this to change within the next 6 months, please contact us directly to discuss what options we can help you with during this transition time.
