PLEASE NOTE: Neither of the above plans are available for Summer sessions. Payment, or approved financial aid, will be required by the billing due date for all Summer sessions.

Setting Up The Plan:

  1. After Veterans Education Benefit students complete their course enrollment and NC State on-line VA "Certification Request", the Cashiers Office will be notified of their VA benefit status.
  2. The Cashier’s Office will send an email to VA-eligible students and direct them to a special Payment Deferment link not available on the standard Tuition Management System (TMS) site.
  3. TMS will notify the Cashier’s Office when a student has applied for the plan, and their proposed budget. The Cashier’s Office will verify budgeted amounts and provide approval to TMS.

TMS Budget Calculation:

  • Include all charges posted on your Student Account; tuition, fees, insurance, housing, dining, orientations, etc.
  • Deduct any financial aid and awards, third-party sponsorships, and Post-9/11 VA Education Benefits (Chapter 33), tuition and fee benefits.

    PLEASE NOTE: Post-9/11 VA Education Benefits (Chapter 33) students must budget for any amounts not covered by their VA payments to NC State. This includes incremental Non-Resident tuition/fee costs, VA Eligibility tuition and fee payment-amounts reflecting less than 100%-VA Eligibility, housing and dining.

Terms And Conditions For This Plan:

  1. Students must have the plan in place by the Billing Due Date, with the correct budget and the enrollment fee paid, or be subject to plan cancellation.
  2. Prior term charges may not be included in the Payment Plan. These must be paid directly on the Student Account via MyPack Portal.
  3. Students who make payments consistent with the Agreement will not be subject to interest charges and can be cleared to register for the upcoming term(s).
  4. Current term plans, and any items not previously included in their budget, must be paid in full by the final plan due date or the schedule for the upcoming term is subject to cancellation.
  5. Failure to comply with the Terms and Conditions of the agreement may prevent usage of a TMS plan in future semesters.
