A postsecondary education is a big investment, but there are many payment options available to triOS students (outlined below). To learn more about these options, and to create your personal payment plan, speak to a triOS College Financial Aid Officer.
Monthly Payment Plan
A monthly payment plan can be arranged to suit your needs. Tuition and material costs are divided into monthly payments throughout your program. The first payment is due on the first day of classes, and the final payment is due approximately one month prior to completion of your studies. Payments are interest free during your study period. All students are automatically eligible for monthly payment plans with no credit check or co-signer required.
EduPay – Extended Monthly Payment Plan
For students who qualify, monthly payment plans may be extended beyond the end of your student period. A credit check is required and some conditions apply.
