Installment Payment Plan

When is an installment payment plan offered?


Deferred payment is only offered in the fall and spring semesters. Summer semester charges are not eligible for deferred payment.

Who is eligible?


Currently enrolled students with a satisfactory payment history to UALR are eligible.

What are my payment plan options?


UALR is now offering two payment plans: a four installment payment plan and a seven installment payment plan.

The four installment payment plan requires 25% down with the initial $50 enrollment fee and three additional installments of 25%. Late fees are $50 per month if the payment is not received by 5 p.m. on the payment due date.

The seven installment payment plan requires 15% down with the initial $50 enrollment fee and five additional installments of 15% and one final installment of 10%. Late fees for non-payment are $25 bi-monthly if the payment is not received by 5 p.m. on the payment due date.

How do I sign up for an installment payment plan?


You may sign up for an installment payment plan in person at the Cashier’s Office or online by the payment due date if you do not have enough financial aid to cover your entire balance due each semester. Promissory notes received at the Cashier’s Office without payment will not be processed, which could result in additional late fees.

When will payments be due under each plan?

Important notices


Electronic bills (e-bills) will be sent to your UALR email address on the first business day of each month. It is the student’s responsibility to read email sent to this address. Failure to do so will not result in the waiving of late fees.

If your account balance changes due to changes in financial aid, enrollment, housing, or any other deferrable amount, it is your responsibility to notify the Cashier’s Office and adjust your payment amount.
