How to Pay for College
What to know...
You can pay your out-of-pocket costs with a 5-month payment plan through TouchNet. Please follow the "How to set up a payment plan" guide. The payments are interest free but you will be charged a $40 enrollment fee each semester. Payments must be made on the first of each month and begin in August.
There are a significant number of private scholarships not connected to the university that are available to students. Begin searching the Internet for private scholarships, and check with your high school, employer or neighborhood organizations to see if scholarships are offered.
Private student loans can help you cover the cost of attendance not covered by federal/state financial aid. These private loans are available through banks, credit unions, online lenders, and other financial institutions and must be paid back. Salem State does not endorse any particular lender; visit elmselect.com to compare student loan options.
