College Expenses, What’s Your Plan?
Paying for the rising costs of a college education is a concern for nearly every student and their family. The fact is, few of us have the resources to simply write a check for the full cost of tuition each semester. So how are you meeting your costs? What’s your plan? Do you have one? Having a solid plan for covering the cost of college is an important step toward graduation. Arkansas State University – Newport is pleased to enlist the services of FACTS to make the process easier for you.
A Proven Plan
To help you meet your educational expenses, ASUN is proud to offer FACTS as a convenient budget plan. This is not a loan program. You have no debt, there are no interest or finance charges assessed, and there is no credit check. The cost to budget your interest-free monthly payment plan is a $25.00 per semester non refundable FACTS Enrollment Fee. You may budget your tuition and fees in the following ways:
- Automatic Bank Payment (ACH)
ACH payments are those payments you have authorized FACTS to process directly with your financial institution. It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have pre approved for your expenses at ASUN. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account. Payments are processed on the 5th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full.
- Credit Card Option
Paying with your credit card gives you the option of taking advantage of any bonus programs that may be offered by your credit card company. Your monthly payment will be automatically charged to the credit card you designate. Payments will be charged on the 5th of each month until the balance is paid in full.
