Panther Payment Plan

Overview

Pay your tuition & fees in convenient monthly installments using Florida Tech's Panther Payment Plan. The Panther Payment Plan is designed to help students and their families effectively budget their out-of-pocket expenses each semester. Plans are available for both undergraduate and graduate level students. Each Panther Payment Plan is for the current semester only and re-enrollment is necessary for each subsequent semester.

AS A CONDITION OF THE PAYMENT PLAN, TRANSCRIPTS AND DIPLOMAS WILL NOT BE RELEASED OR AWARDED UNTIL THE PAYMENT PLAN IS PAID IN FULL AND THE STUDENT ACCOUNT BALANCE IS ZERO.

Important Notice: The Panther Payment Plan is entirely web-based. This means that you both enroll and make your monthly payments online using PAWS. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Account Management at (800) 676-9250, or (321) 674-7428.

Fast - Enrolling in the Panther Payment Plan is quick and easy using PAWS.

Secure - Our online paymets use industry-leading security features.

Convenient - For Fall & Spring semesters, plans offer 4 monthly payments. For Summer, the plan offers 3 monthly payments.

  • Your plan will automatically recalculate your monthly installments nightly when additional charges or payments post to your student account (charges/payments posted to your student account after 5 PM will not be recalculated until after 5 PM on the next business day). 
  • Online through PAWS - anywhere you have Internet access, anytime.
  • Add authorized users to your student account: parents, family, friends, or anyone financially contributing to your education. 

Inexpensive - The Panther Payment Plan is an inexpensive, interest-free payment alternative. Avoid finance charges by enrolling prior to the beginning of the semester & by making payments on time. Enrollment only costs $30.00 per semester, with an optional down payment. Online payments using credit cards are subject to the 1.5% service fee.
