Pre-Payment Plan

The 9PAY application is no longer available for the 2021-2022 academic year.

We are building a new prepayment plan for academic year 2022-2023. More information will be available soon on this page.

9PAY Prepayment Plan

9PAY is an installment payment option for tuition, fees and room and board (if applicable). It allows participants to make their Northwestern tuition and fee payments in nine monthly installments instead of at the start of each term. There are no finance or interest charges; the only cost is a $50 nonrefundable application fee.

It is open to parents or guardians of Northwestern undergraduate, graduate, or professional school students and to Northwestern graduate or professional school students. Students must be enrolled full-time in a Northwestern degree program for the entire academic year.
