The payment plan is available for a small enrollment fee and includes personal account service, automated account information 24 hours a day, access to your account through their website: http://www.afford.com/sjcsf. You may begin the 12 month payment plan as early as April (April 1 – March 1). Enrollment in the payment plan must be complete and first payment made by August 1. Visit their site for more information on payment options, education loans, free education payment counseling and the many ways they can help you afford education. You can contact TMS by calling 1-800-722-4867 or by visiting the website at http://www.afford.com/sjcsf.
Please contact the Treasurer’s Office if you need help calculating your TMS Budget. The TMS Budget is the amount the parent/student owes:
Charges minus financial aid minus deposits equals amount due
Please do NOT use the parent/student contribution on the financial aid award letter, which is simply an estimate. Please do NOT include Work Study awards in the financial aid amount since that money is not paid until the hours are worked.
To Pay by Credit Card(s) or ACH from Checking/Savings:
Tuition Management Systems One Time Payment:
Credit card payments for tuition, room and board, and student activity fee will be administered through our partner, Tuition Management Systems (TMS).
