Enrollment in a Monthly Payment Plan is accomplished by completing and submitting an online monthly payment plan application. Payments can be made online or by mailing your check to: Unity College, Student Accounts, 90 Quaker Hill Road, Unity, ME 04988, together with your first monthly payment and the application fee of $75 prior to May 25th for the 12 Month Payment Plan and June 25th for the 10 Month Payment Plan. All students must be in good financial standing with Unity College in order to participate in a monthly payment plan.
2. Monthly Payments
The total annual budgeted amount is payable in either twelve (12) or ten (10) equal monthly installments. Payment is due on the 25th of each month beginning in May or June respectively preceding the academic year for which costs are budgeted. Only annual charges billed by Unity College may be budgeted. All payments made through the Monthly Payment Plan will be credited directly to the student's bill. Refunds to participants for any reason will be handled according to normal College refund policy.
3. Fees and Other Charges
The $75 application fee is non-refundable. Unity College may assess a $25 service charge against your account for any payment returned for insufficient funds or which is not collectible for any other reason. Unity College may assess your account a 1.5% finance charge for any past due amounts.
4. Failure to Pay
In the event of failure of a participant to pay any installment amount within 15 days of the due date, continued enrollment in the monthly payment plan will be in jeopardy. Any remaining balance may be immediately due in full.
