Payment Options

You may make a payment online through your Student Account .  Once there, click "Make a One Time Payment".  Online payments via ACH from a Checking or Savings account are accepted with no additional fees.  Credit card payments are also accepted.  Please note that there is an additional convenience fee assessed for every credit card payment.  ACH and credit card payments are also accepted over the phone by calling 1-800-334-7924 .

PBA accepts personal checks, cashier's checks, and money orders made payable to PBAU (or Palm Beach Atlantic University).

Financial Aid, payment in full, or Nelnet payment plan must be in place by the tuition due date. Payment plans are not offered after Check-In.

Students may not receive transcripts or diplomas and are not allowed to participate in commencement until the past-due amount is cleared.  Past-due accounts assigned to a collection agency are charged for collection costs.

Protect your school payments

Palm Beach Atlantic University has proudly partnered with GradGuard™ to offer Tuition Insurance from Allianz Global Assistance.

The Tuition Protection plan is like an extension of our refund policy. It can reimburse up to 100% of your nonrefundable school costs after a midsemester withdrawal for a covered illness, injury, psychological condition, and more—protecting your investment in higher education.

To get a quote or learn more about the Tuition Protection Plan, call 1.866.724.4384 or go to:

Tuition insurance plans also come with Student Life Assistance: a 24-hour hotline to help students stay safe on and off campus.  At Palm Beach Atlantic University, we want our families to have peace of mind during their entire time with us.

Insurance must be purchased prior to first day of classes. Coverage extends through the end of that semester.

Tuition insurance is completely optional. The agreement you enter into is with GradGuard, not with Palm Beach Atlantic University.

Nelnet Payment Plan

Payment plans are the sensible approach to paying education expenses.  They allow for smaller, affordable payments instead of paying your balance in one lump sum.  PBA's monthly payment plans are serviced by Nelnet.  The payment plans are interest free and there is no approval process.  The plans offered are:
Fall Semester Payment Plans (Enrollment Fee = $53):

6 Fall Payments: June - November, Due on the 30th of the Month

5 Fall Payments: 15% of balance due at plan setup and then 5 monthly payments (July-November) Due on the 15th of the Month

4 Fall Payments: 20% of balance due at plan setup and then 4 monthly payments (August-November) Due on the 1st or 15th of the Month

3 Fall Payments: 25% of balance due at plan setup and then 3 monthly payments (September-November) Due on the 1st or 15th of the Month

Spring Semester Payment Plans (Enrollment Fee = $53):


Summer Semester Payment Plans (Enrollment Fee = $25):

3 Summer Payments: 0% of balance due at plan setup and then 3 monthly payments (May, June, July) due on the 15th of each month 


Payment Methods Allowed:

ACH Payments from Checking or Savings accounts.

Credit Card payments (an additional processing charge applies to all credit and debit card payments)


To enroll in the payment plan, visit your Student Account Center.

All payment plans must be in place by the published tuition due date. Enrollment in a payment plan is not an option after Check-In has ended.  Waiting to enroll in a payment plan at check-in will leave limited payment plan options, with the first payment being required upon enrollment.


Only standard fees of tuition, meal plans, room, board, resource fees, course related fees and health insurance may be included in the payment plan. Books and parking fees are not payment plan items. Work Study funds, which may be part of your Financial Aid Award, may not be used in payment plan calculations because those funds are paid to you directly as a paycheck. 


Payment plan participants are required to make consecutive monthly payments as scheduled. Accounts with two missed payments or two returned checks will be canceled from the payment plan. Once canceled, the due date will revert back to the original due date of the prospective term. Therefore, the student must make immediate payment in full of the account balance owed.
