Fall 2020 Payment Plan

We won’t drop you.

We know that times are challenging right now. Your education is important and your success is our priority at Shawnee State. The pandemic has created some barriers that we want to help you overcome. To help our students and families stay on track, we will not drop any student who misses the August 12 tuition payment due date. Your classes are protected.


We are also extending the deadline to sign-up for the tuition payment plan to Friday, August 21, 2020. Sign-up for this plan to spread your payments over four installments. Enroll in the payment plan and pay 25% of your balance by August 21 to avoid a $35 late fee. Students who do not enroll in the payment plan and miss the tuition due date will be charged a one-time $180 late fee, so enroll in the payment plan today.
