UNI Payment Plan Options

The University offers a Deferred Payment Plan option for tuition, mandatory fees, and contracted room and meal plan charges. This plan allows students to make payments in installments each semester. Plan options include:

  • 5 Month Plan

All enrolled students are eligible to participate but the student MUST ENROLL. To enroll, students need to visit www.uni.edu and log in to MyUNIverse-Student Center tab to complete the online payment plan agreement. There is a $20 deferred billing fee that will be assessed to the student’s first installment of the semester.

Long-term payment plans are available through Educational Computer Systems, Inc. (ECSI). With this option, students and families are able to pay tuition on a monthly schedule for 12, 11, or 10 months. To take advantage of this option, visit www.ecsi.net or call 1-866-927-1438 to enroll. There is a $65 enrollment fee per year.

Students participating in the ECSI plan make monthly payments beginning as early as May 1. All payments will be due on the first of every month. Payments not received by the first of the month may be subject to account termination. If your account is closed, you are required to pay all university charges directly to UNI.

ECSI provides a detailed status of your account to the university each month. Please refer to the following tables for payment schedule options:
