BVU Payment Plan

The BVU Plan is a service to help students and parents avoid paying a full semester's tuition in sum. Buena Vista University allows parents and students to meet their college investment from current income by providing regularly scheduled monthly payments. The cost of the service is $85 per application.

How the plan works

The BVU Plan allows a maximum of 12 monthly payments beginning no later than August. After signing an agreement, BVU will send a monthly statement listing the amount due each month, due by the 20th of each month.

How to enroll

Complete the Monthly Payment Plan Application or contact the BVU Business Office (address and phone below) for an application.

No interest charges

The BVU Plan is not a loan program. There are no interest or finance charges unless your payments are past due. The plan allows you to "pay as you go," avoiding the need to borrow, withdraw from savings or use other assets to finance your share of the cost for a BVU education.

Late payments

Interest (15%) will be charged if monthly payments are not up-to-date.
