Ten-Month Payment Plan

A payment plan allows your family to spread costs across the academic year.

Bates partners with Tuition Management Systems (TMS) to offer a 10-month payment plan to help families spread their payments across the academic year. Payments are made in monthly installments starting in July and ending in April. The first five payments are applied to the fall semester, and the second five are applied to the winter semester. There is a $70 fee to enroll in the plan. Families who wish to enroll or would like additional information can call 1-800-722-4867.

Participants in the payment plan receive monthly bills from Bates until the student’s account is paid in full. If the amount budgeted by the family does not appear to be sufficient to cover the student’s bill by the end of the term, a reminder may be sent to the family from Student Financial Services.
