Monthly Payment Plan

The university has partnered with ECSI to offer an 3 month interest-free payment plan, available to all students, for Summer 2017.  Students who wish to use this service may sign up online at or by phone at 866-927-1438 between March 1, 2017 and April 30, 2017.

Beginning May 1, 2017, GW students and authorized users will be able to enroll in the university monthly payment plan via the Student Accounts eBill solution.   The new option is available for each semester beginning with Fall 2017.

The monthly payment plans allow the student or authorized user to pay their Fall or Spring semester charges over 5 equal monthly payments.  There are no late penalties assessed on the student’s balance if the student or authorized user enrolls in a payment plan and is current with their monthly payments. Failure to make payment for two consecutive months will result in the cancelation of the plan and the application of a $150 late fee. 

Fall payments are paid from June to October. Spring payments are paid in November through March. Students are advised to sign up with estimated figures in June and November, respectively. Students who sign up after the first payment is due will need to make up any missing payments upon enrollment. The enrollment fees are as follows:

3-Month Summer Plan

Payments for the summer are made on the 20th in April, May and June. An application fee of $35 will be collected upon signing up, and students must sign up between March 1st and April 30th.

Important Considerations

This plan is interest-free if the sum of the payments covers the semester balance due to the George Washington University. If the sum of the payments does not cover the semester balance, the difference must be paid by the first day of the semester to avoid late payment fees and finance charges.

When estimating charges for the Monthly Payment Plan, do not include Work Study awards; these funds are paid directly to the student and are not applied to the student account unless specifically authorized by the student the online authorization form available in GWeb.
