Payment Plans

Barnard’s payment plan is administered by a third party, Tuition Management Systems (TMS).  There is a $95 fee for using the service.  Note that TMS does not have access to your balance at Barnard and will not adjust the amount you budget without specific instructions.  If you enroll in the TMS plan before we print your bill, your plan will already be deducted from Barnard's invoice.  If our bill still shows a balance after the deduction for TMS, your plan does not cover all charges.
