Rutgers Tuition Payment Plans 

The Rutgers University Tuition Payment Plan (RUTPP) allows you to pay your term bill in monthly payments.  

We have partnered with Nelnet Campus Commerce to allow you to pay your tuition and fees over time in an interest-free plan that automatically deducts the amount from your bank account via e-check payment, credit card, or debit card. 

All card payments incur a 2.7 percent service fee. There is a $50 fee to enroll in the RUTPP, assessed per semester. This fee is nonrefundable and due at the time of enrollment. 

To sign up for a payment plan, visit paymybill.rutgers.edu and log into your online term bill (OTB). View the step-by-step sign up guidehow-to video, and plan adjustment guide.

Please contact Nelnet Campus Commerce at 888-470-6014 or view our FAQs below for help with any questions that you may have.  

RBHS students must visit my.rutgers.edu and log into their Online Term Bill (OTB) to sign up for a payment plan. View the step-by-step instructional guide.
