Tulane Installment Prepayment Plan

Tulane is now accepting enrollments in our in-house Tulane Installment Prepayment Plan (TIPP).  TIPP is designed to cover the major educational expenses of tuition, fees, room, meal plans and health insurance.  An installment plan is great in helping families with financial planning.  This plan may eliminate or reduce the need of finding additional financing such as loans.  A small non-refundable enrollment fee of $30 per semester is the only added cost.

Fall semester plans are now available. You may take advantage of Spring semester plans in October (schedule is below). Length of plans are based on the date of enrollment. 

Signing up for an Installment Prepayment Plan will have no impact on the amount of financial aid awarded, nor will it speed up (or slow down) the time required to process financial aid.  Financial aid should be deducted from total major expenses.  Please click here see instructions for enrolling in the plan.

For your convenience, we have provided the worksheets linked below to assist you in determining a plan budget:

All students, even those who opt for this prepayment plan, will receive monthly billing statements by e-mail.  Charges applied to the account that are not included in your payment plan should be paid monthly by the due date. Failure to pay balances due on the Accounts Receivable statements by the due date will result in FINANCE CHARGES.

Students may authorize others (parents, guardians, employers, etc.) to view their billing information and/or make payments on account. Click here to learn how to invite an Authorized User.

Students may enroll in TIPP through the View Online Account link on https://gibson.tulane.edu/ .  Authorized Users may also enroll their student in TIPP at: https://studentaccounts.tulane.edu/

Fees

A $30 non-refundable fee per semester is due at time of enrollment. A late fee of $15 will be billed to the student account if any portion of the monthly installment amount due is not paid by the due date. Plans will terminate after two unpaid installments. 

Many Tulane families have taken advantage of TIPP; however, it is optional. You may set up automatic monthly deductions from your checking or savings account at no additional cost. All major credit cards are also accepted. A non-refundable service charge of 2.85% (minimum $3.00) will be added to credit card payments.  It is not recommended that 529 Plan payers participate in TIPP.  

Make Changes or Cancel a Plan

To make changes or cancel a payment plan, please contact the Accounts Receivable Office.  You are responsible for any balance due after the plan has been canceled.

Please monitor your account regularly to ensure that any additional charges not included in your payment plan are paid when due, as presented on your monthly billing statement.
