Listed here are a few financing alternatives to assist students and their parents with educational expenses not covered by other forms of financial aid. Options include a monthly payment plan (TIPP); a tuition prepayment plan; and/or 529 plans.
Tulane offers an installment payment program designed to help students/families with financial planning, as the program allows for monthly payments to be paid prior to the start of an upcoming semester. For more details please visit the Tulane Accounts Receivable Office website.
The Treasurer's Office administers this plan to allow parents or students to prepay future years' tuition at current rates. Prepayments are separately invested and earnings accrue to the fund to offset tuition increases. Student accounts are charged and credited with each semester's cost of tuition. The program is available for a minimum of two years and a maximum of four years. The program covers basic tuition charges and the Academic Support Services Fee. It may not be used for student activity fees, Reily Center Fee, health center fee, room, board, or other charges.
Those seeking to use this tuition prepayment plan should contact Maria Montgomery at (504) 314-2853.
A 529 plan is a tax-advantaged savings plan designed to encourage saving for future educational costs. 529 plans, legally known as "qualified tuition plans," are authorized by Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code.
