Payment Plan

Fall/Spring Semester Payment Plans

Old Dominion University offers a payment plan, administered by the Office of Finance. When setting up the payment plan, charges for each semester are divided into 4 equal payments with a $40 non-refundable set-up fee. The set-up fee must be paid at the same time the payment plan is established online. Please note: payment plans may NOT be revoked once established.

  • Payment plan is available for Fall and Spring terms ONLY. Payment plans are currently not available for Summer sessions.
  • Payment plan is currently NOT available to students taking non-credit classes.
  • Payment plans must be established for each term by the tuition deadline.
  • Either the student or an Authorized User can set up a payment plan, but only the student is responsible for ensuring their account remains current.

Can past due balances from previous semesters be included in my payment plan?

No. Payment plans can be established for current semester charges only. Students will not be able to establish a payment plan if there is a past due balance from a previous term or if there is a financial hold on the student account. All past due balances must be paid prior to enrolling in the payment plan.

Mandatory semester charges will roll into the payment plan. Please check LEO Online to view current charges.

How do I set up my payment plan?

Payment Plans must be set up online. Paper enrollment forms will not be accepted. Please do not mail payment for the $40 enrollment fee.

  • Students enroll through LEO Online - once logged in, select the link "Make a payment on account, sign up for e-Refunds and/or sign up for a Payment Plan." After selecting that link, students will be redirected to TouchNet, a secured payment site.
  • Authorized users enroll via TouchNet, a secured payment site.

Once in the student's TouchNet account, select Payment Plan from the choices across the top of the screen and follow the prompts to establish the payment plan. During set-up, students will be prompted to pay the amount due. Once you begin the payment process, you have 10 minutes to complete the payment while your plan enrollment is "active." Payments completed after 10 minutes cannot be linked to the payment plan, and you will have to begin the plan enrollment process again and complete a second payment.

Print a copy of your agreement for your records. Once the payment plan is established, the student or authorized user will receive an automatically-generated e-mail which will contain the due date for each installment.

How does Financial Aid timing impact the payment plan?

With financial aid, timing is everything! It is critical that students submit all financial aid paperwork timely so that aid can be processed timely. The more aid that is processed and posted to a student's account, the less the student will have to pay when enrolling in the payment plan.

As financial aid is posted to a student's account, it will reduce the installment amount due. Financial aid will be applied to installments that are not past due. Students are responsible for ensuring all installment payments for the payment plan are made as scheduled and students are responsible for any late fees assessed. Please note that any reduction in financial aid could change the overall amount you owe.

No financial aid is applied to a student's account until all requirements have been met.

Can I make changes to my payment plan?

Once established, the payment plan may not be revoked.

This is an adjustable plan, meaning the plan automatically recalculates remaining installments when there are changes to charges or credits posted on a student's account. If a student drops/adds a course, the credit or additional cost will be divided equally among the installments that are not yet due.

Students will receive an automatic e-mail notification from TouchNet each time a payment plan amount changes.

When are my payment installments due?

Students will receive e-mail notification from TouchNet each time an upcoming installment payment is coming due. Students may also review payment plan installment due dates by logging into LEO Online at any time.

Why do I keep receiving an e-bill statement while I'm enrolled in a payment plan?

After signing up for the payment plan, students will continue to receive a comprehensive e-billing statement for total charges with the original tuition deadline as the due date. This e-bill statement does not show payment plan installment due dates or amounts. Students must login to LEO Online to view their actual payment plan amounts and due dates.

What happens if I miss a payment installment deadline?


If any installment payment, or portion thereof, is not received by the due date, it is considered late and your account may be penalized. You will also be removed from the payment plan and the full remaining balance will be due immediately. Late fees will also be assessed on the next billing cycle.
