Tuition Payment Plan

Main page content

How does it work: the UW Tacoma Tuition payment plan option allows UW Tacoma students to pay their quarterly tuition in three installments, due by the first, third and fifth Fridays of the quarter. A new enrollment form must be submitted for each quarter.

How much does it cost: a $25 service fee is added to your student account and is due with your first payment.

How do I know if I was accepted into the plan: Check your tuition statement after the first Monday of the quarter. If your enrollment was accepted, a $25 "Tuition Payment Plan" charge will be listed on your tuition statement. An email notification is ONLY sent to students who DO NOT qualify for the plan. 

Payment Plan Due Dates: due dates are always the first, third and fifth Fridays of the quarter. If the initial payment is not received by the first due date, you will not be accepted into the program. The remaining two payments are each subject to a $55 late fee, if they are not made on time.

NOTE: If you are current on your Tuition Payment Plan, please ignore the late payment notices from Seattle campus.


Payment Options:

  • MyUW: go to your "Tuition Statement" and select either the "Web Check" option (no service fee) or the credit card option (a service fee will be added).
