Deferred Loan Payment Plans

UNF offers two deferred payment plans to students. In deferred payment plan number one, students pay for one half of the cost of their tuition at the beginning of the term. They pay the remaining half of the cost by mid term. Plan two allows students to arrange their own schedule of payments. In this plan students can divide their payments into any number which meets their needs. The final payment must be made by the due date, which will fall approximately one month before the end of the term. There is a $10 processing and handling fee attached to this program. Applications for both programs can be picked up at the UNF Cashier's office on campus. Check the course schedule book for deadlines.
