Automatic Debit Plan

The University System offers an Automatic Debit Plan (ADP) to enable students to spread tuition payments over time by having them automatically charged to a credit card on a preset schedule. The amount and number of payments is proportional to the length of the course and ensures course tuition is paid prior to the end of the academic period. Students in 16-week courses make four ADP payments. Students in 8-week courses make two ADP payments. To be eligible for the ADP plan, any student must be registered for credit-bearing courses. Audit students are not eligible for ADP.

ADP Eligibility

To be eligible to use ADP, you must:

  • Have declared an undergraduate or graduate degree as your academic goal
  • Use a credit card as payment
  • Have an acceptable credit history with APUS
