Graduate and Nursing Tuition Payment Plan

The Graduate and Nursing Tuition Payment Plan allows students taking graduate courses and nursing courses to break up their tuition costs into three payments made over the course of three months.

Here is how it works:

  • First payment: 33% of student's tuition, plus a $35 fee paid at time of registration.
  • Second payment: 50% of the student's remaining balance paid on the 23rd day of the semester
  • Third and final payment: Paid on the 50th day of the semester

Important Notes:

  • Students register themselves for this payment plan through the University's online payment system at the end of the online course registration process
  • This payment plan does not replace the current partner payment plan for nursing students working for organizations with partnership agreements with the W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing.
    • Students receiving federal financial aid, military tuition assistance, VA benefits*, corpor`ate tuition assistance or any third-party tuition assistance are not eligible for the payment plan.

*VA Benefit Advisory:

Students enrolled in graduate and nursing courses who use reimbursement-based VA benefits such as Chapter 30, 32, 35, 1606 and 1607 may use this payment plan; payments will be processed on the plan's schedule and payment plan installments are not dependent upon enrollment certification processing by Thomas Edison State University or receipt of allowances from the VA.
