Spartan Payment Plans

Manchester University offers Spartan Payment Plans to help families manage the cost of financing a college education.  The Spartan Payment Plan offers interest-free, monthly payments.

Payments due dates are specific to each plan. Each plan has a setup fee that is paid when enrolling in the plan.  Payments received more than 5 (five) days past the due date will be assessed a late fee of $30.00. Automatic payments can be scheduled during initial enrollment using an echeck (checking/savings account) or by debit/credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express). Note: Payment plan payments are subject to change by adding/dropping courses and changes in financial aid.

Enrollment in a Spartan Payment Plan can be accessed through the Spartan Self-Service > Student Account Center on ChetNet. Authorized users, parents or others designated by the student can login here. Not an authorized user? Ask your student to login and send you a request.

Can I enroll in a payment plan after the initial start date

Yes. The payment plan will require payment of any missed installments up to the date of enrollment. All remaining installments will default to the payment plan due date. For example: Enrollment in a payment plan that begins July 1 on July 5 will require the July 1 payment to be paid at the time of enrollment. All remaining installments in the plan will be due on the 1st of each month.

What is the difference between Scheduled Payments and Payment Plan Installments?

Scheduled Payments will be automatically paid on the due date specified in the Payment Schedule. A saved payment method must be used to make the automatic payment.

Payment Plan Installments will not be paid automatically. Payment must be made manually by the due date each month.

How do I pay my monthly payment plan installment?

Scheduled, automatic monthly payments can be set up during payment plan enrollment. If not enrolled in scheduled payments, monthly installment payments can be paid online through the Spartan Self-Service > Student Account Center. Select the “Payment Plans” tab and select the Action button next to the installment payment due or select the “Pay Next Installment” button at the bottom of the page. Monthly payment plan installments (cash or check only) can also be paid in Student Financial Services located in the One Stop Student Service Center. See the SFS Payment Expectation page for mailing information. Please include the student name and ID number on the check.

Can I make a partial payment plan payment?


Yes. To make a partial payment plan payment, click the “Payments” tab, select “Schedule” or “Pay” next to the installment payment due. It will default to the total payment due. Edit the payment amount as needed. Partial monthly payment plan installments (cash or check only) can also be paid in the Student Financial Services office. See the SFS Payment Expectation page for mailing information. Please include the student name and ID number on the check. Note: if the total payment due is not paid by the fifth day of the month, a late fee will be added to the student account.

I received a message similar to the following: ‘We’re sorry, you cannot enroll in XXX Payment Plan.'


This message is received when total credits, such as payments or financial aid, are equal to or exceed tuition and other charges. A payment plan cannot be activated with a credit or zero balance.

What is an Automatic Rollover?

Each payment plan is for a specific term (semester). Automatic rollover means the fall payment plan will automatically rollover, or convert, into a spring payment plan on the date specified in the terms of the plan. There is no action required by the student.
