Payment Plans

Barnard’s payment plan is administered by a third party, Tuition Management Systems (TMS).  There is a $50 fee each semester for enrolling in the service.  Note that TMS does not adjust the amount you budget without your specific instructions.  (If you wish to increase/decrease your budget to cover Barnard charges, you must advise TMS.)  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.
