Monthly Payment Plan Enrollment begins on July 10th

Rider offers a flexible interest-free monthly payment plan to help you spread out your remaining balance after subtracting financial aid and other credits each semester. The payment plan will be available through the myRider portal and Rider’s “Authorized User” log in. The plan incorporates real-time charges, payments and pending credits directly from Rider’s student system.  Once you finalize your payment plan enrollment, you and/or your Authorized User will immediately see the scheduled payments on your student account making it easier to manage your overall financial plan.


How much does the plan cost?

There is a one-time enrollment fee of $75 that will include both fall and spring semesters. 


Do I have to enroll again in the spring semester?

If you enroll in a fall semester monthly payment plan, you will automatically be enrolled in the monthly payment plan for the spring semester for no additional fee.


How do I enroll in a monthly payment plan?

  1. Log in to your myRider portal and click on the “Student” tab 
  2. Click “iPay: Pay my Admission or Housing Deposit/University Bill” in the Student Finances section located in the lower right corner
  3. Click “Continue” and another window will open 
  4. Click on the Payment Plans tab, located just below the Rider logo
  5. Choose an available payment plan

How do I give Authorized Users (parents, employers, etc.) the ability to view e-bills and make online payments?

  1. Log in to your myRider portal and click on the “Student” tab 
  2. Click “iPay: Pay my Admission or Housing Deposit/University Bill” in the Student Finances section located in the lower right corner
  3. Click “Continue” and another window will open 
  4. Hover over “My Account” then click on “Authorized Users”

The student will need to provide the e-mail address of the authorized user, answer two short questions, then confirm the authorized user.


What will happen if my charges change?

To account for any new charges or payments of financial aid adjustments, the monthly payment plan will be recalculated and distributed among your remaining payments.  Payment Plans are only available to cover tuition, mandatory fees, housing and meals.  Any charges related to health services, traffic or disciplinary fines and miscellaneous expenses are excluded from payment plans and due upon receipt of your monthly billing statement.


What will happen if my payment is late? 

All late payments will be assessed a Late Fee of $25.00 for each month that the student is late. Non-payment can result in the cancellation of your payment plan and your entire outstanding balance will be due immediately. 

If the account remains unpaid, the University reserves the right to suspend or withdraw you from classes; withhold grades, transcripts, and diplomas; deny you future enrollments; and require you to move from student housing.


Is there a fee to pay with my credit card?

Credit card payments for all tuition and related fees, housing and meal plans will be assessed a 2.75% payment service fee.
Please note that Rider University does not receive any compensation or portion of such fee for offering credit card payments as an option. This fee will be presented to you during the credit card payment process and will appear on your credit card billing statement.

How do I avoid the service fee?

Students can avoid the 2.75% service fee by choosing "Electronic Check" as the payment method when making payments through the myRider portal
