OSA desired a vendor partner that could meet your payment processing technology needs while also enabling UMGC to provide world-class customer service, maintain operational flexibility and manage payment plans in house. TouchNet was the best fit with:
There is a $35 non-refundable application fee charge when you sign up. You are responsible for the fee each term that you use a payment plan.
At the time of enrollment the non-refundable application fee of $35 is due as well as the first installment. The installment amount will vary based on the total number of months and the total amount of the plan.
Payment plans open for each term on the first day of registration. The earlier you enroll, the longer you can stretch your payments. All payment plans must be paid in full by the end of the term: December for fall, May for spring, and July for summer.
No. There is no credit check and no interest fees.
UMGC's monthly payment plans are interest free.
The payment plan will reflect in PeopleSoft immediately after it has been created in TouchNet.
Yes, since UMGC typically offers enrollment in two terms at any given time, you will be allowed to sign-up for a plan to cover each term. However, please note that overlapping payment plans will require two separate payments each month. For example, if enrolled in a fall plan that does not end until December, you will need to make two payments if you sign up for a spring plan between September and December.
All payment plans are due on the 15th of the month. If you become delinquent on your plan, UMGC will notify you. Ultimately, if the payment is not received by the last business day of the month, OSA will cancel the plan. This will create a balance on the account that could cause disenrollment or further collection outreach.
No. There are no fees for late payments.

Yes. The plan will adjust automatically whether there is an increase or decrease in the total due in a given term. However, if you add a class and the next installment is due within 14 days, the next installment amount will not be increased. Instead, the remaining installments will absorb the increase.
Yes. You have the option to set-up and allow access to an authorized user, who will be able to log in to the TouchNet account to make payments on your plan.
In order to qualify for a standard payment plan, you must have a balance of at least $200.
