Monthly Payment Plan
Mount Saint Mary College offers a convenient Monthly Payment Plan (MPP) to help you pay each fall and spring semester’s educational expenses in five monthly installments, interest-free.
In order to enroll in the Monthly Payment Plan, students will need to access the MSMC portal Student Accounts tab and sign up under “Enroll in MPP.” Students can then give access to parents or guardians by sending a payer invitation through the site. Please see the MPP Enrollment Guide for more information.
You must re-enroll for the program each semester you’d like to participate, and a $30.00 enrollment fee is charged each semester of enrollment. Please note that Monthly Payment Plan installments paid by credit or debit card are subject to a 2.75% service fee by CASHNet SmartPay, our payment card processor. Avoid the service fee by paying your Monthly Payment Plan online with your bank account via ACH (eCheck).

Monthly Payment Plan FAQs
Enrollment prior to the first installment’s due date will result in five MPP payments. However, your MPP installments decrease each month registration is delayed (e.g. the first installment for the fall MPP is due July 20, registration in August results in a 4-month plan).
Your MPP balance is determined using the following formula: Tuition and Fees Balance less Anticipated Financial Aid and/or Awards.
(Tuition & Fees) – (Anticipated Financial Aid and Awards) = MPP Balance
If your Student Account balance changes during the semester, the MPP will automatically re-calculate the remaining monthly payments (e.g. new tuition charges applied to the account or additional aid received).
You may process payment to the MPP using a credit card (Visa, Discover, MasterCard) or e-check. Just visit portal.msmc.edu, log in, select the Student Accounts tab, and click on Make an MPP Payment. Payers who have been invited to make payments toward a student's account will use the link they received in their welcome email with their login credentials. Another way for a payer to access the payment site is by the "Make a Payment" link found on this page.
The MPP provides email notification of your next installment due date, payment confirmation, and late/missed payments.
Your student bill is subject to a $40 late fee if MPP payments are not received by the 20th of each month.
Multiple missed installment payments result in withdrawal from MPP. If you are withdrawn from the MPP, your student account balance is due in full, and you are subject to the standard late payment fee up to $200.
