Authorized users can also enroll in a payment plan by accessing the Payment Center and following the same process once in the Payment Center. Please note that only one person can be enrolled in a payment plan at one time. For example, if an authorized user is enrolled in a payment plan for the Fall, any other authorized users or the student cannot enroll in the Fall plan.
