Payment Plans

SMU CAPE offers payment plans for students wishing to pay in installments. To secure a spot in the program you will make a down payment equal to half the cost of tuition. Students using payment plans pay towards the Standard Rate of tuition.

The full amount of tuition must be paid in full at least three weeks before the program start date. If payment is incomplete, a hold will be placed on your account for 24 hours. After that time, you will lose your seat in the program. If you are unable to attend the program, your funds will go into escrow to use within one year, or you can receive a refund minus a $250 processing fee.

  1. Complete and submit the application form related to the certificate program of your choice.
  2. Be sure to indicate if you will be utilizing the payment plan.
  3. Make the down payment (half the cost of tuition) to secure your seat in the program.
  4. Make payments towards tuition in installment amounts of your choice. The remaining balance must be paid in full three weeks before the program begins.
