The convenience of paying school expenses on a monthly basis is an attractive option for many families. Longwood University provides an opportunity for parents and students to pay educational expenses in four interest-free installments per semester. The plan is available to any student for the fall and/or spring semesters with the exception of study abroad students.

NOTE: Payment plan enrollment is per semester for fall and spring. The payment plan is not available for summer semesters.

Enrollment for the fall payment plan will open on line mid-July. Enrollment for the spring plan will open on line late November. Payments for the fall semester are due on the 1st of each month from August through November. Payments for the spring semester are due on the first of each month from December through March.   

A non-refundable participation fee of $50.00 per semester is charged at the time of on line enrollment. Personal expenses, books, computers, or travel expenses are not included in your plan. Longwood University does not charge a fee for late enrollment. However, any "missed" payments must be paid at the time of enrollment.

Our Touchnet Payment Plan Manager system should automatically adjust your monthly payments as activity on the student account changes and will notify the student or authorized user (s) via email. The payments are automated using an ACH bank draft (Electronic check) or credit/debit cards (2.75% convenience fee). The automated payment schedule is set upon enrollment. No other action is necessary for the payments to draft from the bank account selected at enrollment in the plan. If you wish to change your plan payment method, log in and save a new payment profile. Click on Payment Plan to change the account associated with your plan.

Important Notes

  • Please obtain the correct format for your account number from your bank.  The payment is subject to approval and final verification from your bank.  A $50 fee will be charged for any items returned by your bank.
  • Lines of credit, money market accounts, trust accounts, mutual fund accounts, etc may not be automatically drafted. Please check with your financial institution to verify your account can be electronically drafted.

How to Enroll

Enrollment in the plan is accomplished by completing our web-based self service application. The student may enroll in the plan or may authorize others to enroll in the plan. Students may access the option for the plan through My Longwood Portal, Student Tab, My Student Account. Authorized users will be emailed the procedures for accessing the student account and may enroll in the plan once the student sets the authorizations.
