Payment Plans

We make paying for college easier with the CSM monthly payment plan, a convenient, interest-free way to budget your expenses. This is not a loan program, so there is no credit check.

Payments can be made in person at a convenient campus location, online through your myCSMD account, or can be mailed to: College of Southern Maryland, Student Account Services, PO Box 910, La Plata, MD 20646.

Important Information Regarding the Payment Plan

  • Students are responsible to make payments each month through Online Services or in person. The down payment and monthly payments will NOT be automatically withdrawn.
  • Students have 24 hours after registering for courses to enroll on a payment plan to avoid being dropped.
  • The down payment and the $50 non-refundable enrollment fee are required at the time you enroll in the payment plan.
  • To be eligible for a credit payment plan, you must be enrolled for at least one credit.
  • To be eligible for a non-credit payment plan, your total charges for tuition and fees for the term must total $500 or more. 
  • Your payment plan will automatically adjust with your student account changes including schedule adjustments, additional payments, waiver/billing changes, and financial aid awards.
  • If monthly payments are not made on the agreed date, then a $25 late payment fee will be assessed.
  • Enrollment in the CSM Payment Plan will hold your courses as long as the down payment is made and all monthly payments are current.
  • The payment plan will automatically cancel if a student drops all courses for the semester.  A non-refundable enrollment fee will be charged for each new payment plan enrollment.
