Payment Plan

Paying for a college education is one of the first major financial decisions a student will make. The payment plan has scheduled payment installments designed to help a student manage the costs and pay balances by the end of the semester.

    • Students are encouraged to enroll in the payment plan when the current semester outstanding balance is $200 or more.
    • Each payment plan is semester-specific.
    • Payment plans are only available to students enrolled in the current semester.

To avoid the $25.00 Payment Plan Application Fee and the late fees, enroll in the Payment Plans by the enrollment deadline dates.

For the Fall 2021 semester, payment plan enrollment opens oJuly 16, 2021.

    • The deadline to enroll in the Fall 2021 payment plan is August 29, 2021.
    • There will be a non-refundable$25 application fee*

 *Please note that the $25.00 Payment Plan Application Fee and late fees will be waived if you enroll in the Fall 2021 Payment Plan if you enroll by August 29, 2021.

  • Fall and Spring semester payment plans will have five payments and the Summer semester plan will have three payments.
  • The remaining payments will be due by the 15th of each month.
  • There will be a $10 fee charged* to a student’s account for each late, partial, or missed payment.
    • Payment amounts are subject to change if any charges or credits post after enrolling in the Payment Plan.
    • A student cannot have a prior semester balance of $1,000 or more.

IMPORTANT: The Payment Plan is not the same as Auto Payment.  Once enrolled in the Payment Plan, the student or proxy will have to actively make the remaining payments by the due dates or schedule the payments with an Auto Payment. Auto Payments are scheduled by going to Once logged in, select 'Auto Pay' in the upper left-hand corner. Then select 'Sign up' under the heading NMSU Auto Payment, and follow the prompts.
