How does it work?
An annual plan will cover the entire school year. The plan
will be rebalanced throughout the year if your charges or aid change; the
annual plan will also rebalance if necessary at the start of each quarter, once
your charges and aid are final. There is also a quarterly plan available.
Your monthly payments will be automatically withdrawn from
your bank account, or charged to your credit card, on the 10th of
each month. The Annual Plan and the Quarterly Plan for Autumn will be available
in late August. The Winter Quarterly and Spring Quarterly Plans will be available later in the
Once the plan is available you can see if you are eligible,
