Installment Plan

Interest-free, installment payment plans are offered through Tuition Management Systems (TMS).

Enrollment is completed online at

The TMS plan may be used for payment during one semester or for the academic year. The payer will enter a total budget to be paid in monthly installments. Your budget is the portion of your semester bill you plan to pay using TMS.

If a payment plan budget does not cover student’s account balance, the difference will show as a balance due on the bill.  The balance due is payable directly to Bowdoin prior to the bill due date. You may instead increase your budget to pay the outstanding balance.

If the balance due is listed in parentheses, there is a credit balance on the student account. The TMS budget may be decreased to avoid overpayment.
