Cougar Payment Plan

Averett University expects payment arrangements to be completed prior to the due date or move in date, whichever occurs first. By paying the full balance due by the due date or move in date, you avoid additional payment plan fees. Pay-in-full is your most economical option.

Averett University offers traditional students the option of paying their tuition and fee bill in four installments rather than one lump sum. Students who choose to take advantage of this plan are allowed to pay their tuition and fees according to the following payment schedule:

Fall 2019*

  • 1st installment: August 13, 2019: (or by campus move in date, or by the first athletic team practice date, whichever occurs first) ¼ of Tuition and fees plus $60 payment plan fee.
  • 2ndinstallment: September 9, 2019: ¼  of tuition and fees
  • 3rdinstallment: October 14, 2019: ¼ of tuition and fees
  • Final installment: November 11, 2019: remaining balance tuition/fees plus bookstore charges, if any.

Spring 2020*

  • 1st installment: January 6, 2020: (or by campus move in date, or by the first athletic team practice date, whichever occurs first) ¼ of Tuition and fees plus $60 payment plan fee.
  • 2ndinstallment: February 10, 2020: ¼  of tuition and fees
  • 3rdinstallment: March 9, 2020: ¼ of tuition and fees
  • Final installment: April 13, 2020: remaining balance tuition/fees plus bookstore charges, if any.

To calculate the Minimum Amount Due (fall or spring semesters):

Total Semester Charges Less (-): Verified Financial Aid and Scholarships, excluding work-study:   (-) *Credit Balance on account (i.e., Payments Received-To-Date)

Equals (=): Installment Plan Amount

Installment Plan Amount ÷ 4 = Minimum Amounts Due to Averett

1stInstallment Amount
+ $60 semester installment plan fee
+ any previous balance
= Minimum Amount Due 

The Installment Plan is available to all traditional students, part-time or full-time. The $60 per semester (fall or spring) fee is a non-refundable fee for participation in the plan, regardless of the balance. Payments not received by the scheduled due date, will incur a late charge fee of $75. A monthly bill is sent to all authorized users, the student’s Averett email account and posted on the Averett PC Self-Service account.
