Payment of Tuition and Fees
Contacting the Business Office, Memorial Hall, room 109, is the final step in the Registration Process. Students must confirm that their classes are correct, their charges are correct (tuition, fees, housing, etc) and payment arrangements have been made.
Registration will not be complete and students cannot attend classes until all tuition/fees are paid or appropriate payments arrangements have been made with the Business Office. Students must pay all balances owed the University before the end of each semester. Cumberland offers several payment options to facilitate the student with their final step of registrations.
Methods of payment are: cash, personal check, money order, credit cards, and online payment. Financial Assistance is available to students who qualify. Students should contact the Office of Financial Services, Memorial Hall, room 103 for details.
PAYMENT IN FULL - CU will accept a personal check or money order for the total balance due. Checks should be made payable to Cumberland University and include the student's full name on the face of the check. The University also accepts VISA, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.
Payments may be made online by credit card, debit card, or electronic check by clicking here.
MONTHLY PAYMENTS - Students may make monthly payments by enrolling in the FACTS Payment Plan. Contracts may be completed online on the FACTS Payment Plan website. Payments are automatically withdrawn from a checking or savings account, or a credit or debit card on the 5th or the 20th of each month (April 2013-July 2013). Contact the Business Office at 615-547-1218 or 615-547-1250 for details.
THIRD PARTY PROMISSORY NOTE - CU also offers a deferred payment plan to those students whose employer/responsible party has agreed to pay for their classes. Students must sigh a "Third Party Promissory Note" (found on the left of this page) stating the employer/responsible party will pay the balance on completion of classes at the end of the semester. The student must also submit a signed statement from their employer on company letterhead.
A student who has a balance of more than one semester in arrears will not be permitted to register for further classes until the account is paid current.
