Clarkson University’s Payment Plan

Undergraduate students and semester based graduate students may opt to enroll in Clarkson University’s monthly payment plan.  The applicant determines the amount to be financed, with the maximum amount being total charges less anticipated financial aid, and the minimum amount being $1,000 per term. The Payment Plan is available with only a $30 nonrefundable application fee; as long as the terms and conditions of the payment plan are met, there are no finance and/or interest charges associated with it.

For Fall 2021, the payment plan schedule will be the following:
25% of the total amount due prior to 7/20/21
25% of the total amount due prior to 8/20/21
25% of the total amount due prior to 9/20/21
25 % of the total amount due prior to 10/20/21

For Spring 2022, the payment plan schedule will be the following:
25% of the total amount due prior to 11/20/21
25% of the total amount due prior to 12/20/21
25% of the total amount due prior to 1/20/22
25% of the total amount due prior to 2/20/22

We are currently working on simplifying the payment plan application and making it electronic and hope to have a solution in place sometime in early June or sooner.  In the meantime, if you are eager to sign up for a payment plan for the Fall 2021 term, then please send an email to with the following information:

Employer Reimbursement Option

Students must complete the electronic Employer Reimbursement form in PeopleSoft and provide an upload of their company’s tuition reimbursement plan to have their term payment deferred; instructions can be found by logging into PeopleSoft, selecting Main Menu, Self Service, CU SAS Forms and finally CU SAS Employer Reimbursement.  Neglecting to complete the Employer Reimbursement form prior to the term due date will likely result in finance charges being added to your student account which will be your responsibility and not that of your employer.  If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Kim MacDonald at 315-268-6451 or
