College Expenses: What’s Your Plan?

Paying for the rising costs of a college education is a concern for nearly every student and family. The fact is, few of us have the resources to simply write a check for the full cost of tuition each semester. So how are you meeting your costs? What’s your plan? Do you have one?

Having a solid plan for covering the cost of college is an important step toward graduation. South Suburban College is pleased to enlist the services of FACTS to make the process easier for you.

This page outlines payment solutions brought to you by FACTS Management Company, the leading tuition payment plan provider in the industry. Working together, South Suburban College and FACTS will provide you with sensible strategies for covering the rising costs of college.

Here is a Proven Plan

To help you meet your educational expenses, South Suburban College is proud to offer FACTS as a convenient budget plan ($100 minimum to budget). This is not a loan program. You have no debt, there are no interest or finance charges assessed, and there is no credit check.

The cost to budget your interest-free monthly payment plan is a $25.00 per semester non-refundable FACTS Enrollment Fee. There is no fee to use the “Pay In Full By Credit Card” option.

All enrollment fees, down and full payments, will be processed immediately.

You may budget your College tuition and fees in the following ways:

  1. Automatic Bank Payment (ACH)
    ACH payments are those payments you have authorized FACTS to process directly with your financial institution. It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have pre approved for your expenses at South Suburban College. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account. Payments are processed on the 5th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full. There is no fee to use the “Pay in Full by Bank Account Transfer” option.
  2. Credit Card Option
    Scheduling your payment with your credit card gives you the option of taking advantage of any bonus programs that may be offered by your credit card company. Your monthly payment will be automatically charged to the credit card you designate. Payments will be charged on the 5th of each month until the balance is paid in full.

Frequently Asked Questions about FACTS

FACTS specifies the date each payment will occur, but it is your financial institution that determines the time of day the payment is debited. FACTS recommends you check with your financial institution to determine how far in advance funds should be deposited into your account to ensure the automatic payment clears. If a payment date falls on a weekend or banking holiday, the payment will be attempted the following business day.

Once your agreement is posted to the FACTS system, you will receive a confirmation notification of your payment amount by e-mail or letter. Payments will be processed until the total balance is paid in full. The notification has important information you must have to log on to My FACTS Account. The notification also serves as a reminder that a $25.00 per semester non-refundable FACTS Enrollment Fee will be processed from the account indicated on the agreement. This $25 FACTS enrollment fee will be charged to your bank or credit card account within 14 days of the completion of your agreement. There will be $30 non-refundable Returned Payment fee if a payment is returned.

In accordance with the Terms & Conditions of your FACTS agreement, payments are processed electronically. FACTS does not accept payments by phone.

To help protect your privacy, FACTS asks the person responsible for the payments to create an access code. If you should call into FACTS inquiring about your FACTS agreement or inquire online through My FACTS Account, you will be required to verify your FACTS Access Code. If you do not create an access code on your FACTS agreement, one will be randomly assigned to you. Your FACTS Access Code will be identified on your FACTS Confirmation Notification. Please remember to keep a copy of your confirmation notification. If you forget your access code contact FACTS at (800) 609-8056.
