Payment Options

Our Philosophy

Amberton University's philosophy is to provide an affordable, quality education with reasonable costs enabling students to "pay as they go" and not incur long-term debt. In keeping with this philosophy, all tuition and fees are due and payable at the time of enrollment. However, for students with acceptable credit, the University offers the following convenient payment options.

Payment Options

Payments can be submitted to the University in the form of cash, checks, money orders, cashier's checks, and credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, and Discover Card). Payments can be mailed, presented at the Student Services Offices in Garland and Frisco, and faxed.  Credit/debit card payments can also be made online through the Student Portal.

Payment Deferral

Students who can prove financial integrity to the satisfaction of the University may request to defer their educational costs when enrolling.  To apply for the payment deferral program, complete the Payment Deferral Application/Agreement found on the University's web site under "Current Students - Forms & Publications - Student Financial Forms."  Return the form by fax or mail along with the Registration Information Form to complete the enrollment process.

Employer Tuition Assistance

Many employers provide tuition assistance for their employees.  Students should explore their options by contacting their employer's Human Resources Benefits Department.

Amberton University is also approved to administer the Veteran's Education Benefits Program.  Prior to enrolling, please contact your Education Services Officeer (ESO) or a counselor within your military service for more information and approval.
