Interest-Free Payment Options

Graduate without student debt - CalSouthern offers convenient, low monthly payment options

CalSouthern recognizes that every learner’s circumstances are unique. That’s why we offer—in addition to affordably priced tuition—a variety of convenient and flexible payment options to accommodate your needs. Regardless of the plan you choose, CalSouthern will charge you zero interest, and your tuition will never increase as long as you maintain continuous enrollment in the university. The tuition lock is in effect for the degree or certificate program you enroll in. It does not apply if you change your degree or certificate program.

You’ll find the details and benefits of these payment options in the chart below. Options one and two make it possible for you to graduate without debt. Option three is designed for the learner who is looking for a low monthly payment and minimal up-front cost. Learners who choose this option will typically have a tuition balance upon completion of the degree program, which can be paid in full or via interest-free monthly payments.

Please take a moment to evaluate these payment options to determine which one best suits your particular needs, and be sure to contact a CalSouthern enrollment advisor with any questions or for additional information.

Obligation of Payment

In accordance with California Law, grades, transcripts diplomas, and enrollment privileges, or any combination thereof shall be withheld from any Learner or former Learner who has been provided written notice that he or she has failed to make a payment a due to the university. Any item or items withheld shall be released when the student satisfactorily meets the financial obligation. By registering, Learners agree to be held responsible for all tuition and fees. Tuition and fees for all Learners, including those who elect semesters or monthly payment plans, become an obligation in accordance with the provisions of the Refund Policy described above. Tuition and fees are due, in full, by the predetermined deadline. Failure to make payments of any indebtedness to the University when due, including but not limited to tuition fees and payment plan options is considered sufficient cause, until the debt is settled with the University, to (1) bar the Learner from classes and examinations; (2) bar the Learner from future registration until all financial obligations are satisfied; (3) withhold diploma, scholastic certificate or transcripts; (4) suspend all University services and privileges; (5) suspend the Learner; (6) assign the student to a collection agency (Learners who have been assigned to an outside collection agency will be required to pay in advance for all future registrations and services); (7) report the Learner to a credit bureau. This policy will be equally enforced against debts discharged through bankruptcy. Permission to cancel enrollment does not constitute, nor shall it be construed as, a waiver by the University of a Learner’s financial obligation. Learners are still responsible for all outstanding debts and contracts with the university. Furthermore, a Learner must not have any delinquent financial obligations to CalSouthern the time classes begin or his or her registration may be revoked.

The University has no pending petition in bankruptcy, is not pending operating as a debtor in possession, has not filed a petition within the preceding five years, or has not had a petition in bankruptcy filed against it within the preceding five years that resulted in reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (11U.S.C. Sec. 1101 et seq.).
