Alma College Payment Plan

Alma College has partnered with PayMyTuition to offer an interest free Payment Plan to enable students or their families to make monthly installments on their student account towards tuition, fees and room and board. The payment plan is not a loan and is available for the fall and winter semesters for up to five automatic installments per semester. Enrolling in this plan requires a non-refundable $35 fee per plan.

  • Fall Semester – July, August, September, October, and November. Deadline to enroll is August 10. (5 payments if enrolled by July)
  • Winter Semester – December, January, February, March, and April. Deadline to enroll is January 5. (5 payments if enrolled by December)

It will be up to the discretion of the Alma College Financial Services Office if late enrollment will be allowed. The payment plan will automatically readjust if charges are added or removed from the student’s account.


Key Features

  • Enrollment Fee: $35
  • Payment Method: ACH, local Bank Transfers, and Credit Cards
    • Our vendor assesses a 2.75% convenience fee on credit card payments.

Proxy Access

We’re excited to introduce a new feature to student accounts: Proxy Access. This addition gives students the opportunity to allow access to financial account information to a parent or guardian of their choosing.

Assign a Proxy

A student and only a student at Alma College can select the individual(s) as his/her proxy to view a student’s statement of accounts and/or make a payment on his/her behalf. Already signed up? Log on here.

Student Privacy under FERPA

This designation does not take the place of the protections afforded to the student under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Release of a student’s educational record is still not allowed without the student’s written consent, including to parents, family members and designated proxies. Therefore, Alma College will be unable to answer any questions about the information made available to a proxy without said written consent. The student can complete Consent for Disclosure form online to provide outside parties additional access to his/her educational records.

Frequently Asked Questions

I never got the login/password email to access my student’s record. What should I do?

Flip for Answer

First, please confirm with your student that your email address is correct in Self-Service. If not, then your student will need to contact the Financial Services Office, (989) 463-7144, to update your contact information. A copy of your username was sent to your student’s Alma College email address.

If email address on file is correct, please check your spam folder. If you are still unable to find the login/password information, contact the Financial Services Office (989) 463-7144 to verify that the proxy designation was set up correctly.

Flip for Answer

I am already a proxy for one of my children. Now another one of my children is enrolled at Alma. Will I automatically have access to my second child’s information?

Flip for Answer

No. Your second student needs to access his or her user profile in Self-Service, and designate you as his or her proxy. Once proxy access has been granted, you can use the same username and password to access his or her information.

Flip for Answer

I forgot my password. What should I do?

Flip for Answer

Contact the financial services office at (989) 463-7144 during regular business hours or email the office at financialservices@alma.edu.

Flip for Answer

I called Alma College Financial Services to get some clarification about my student’s bill, but wasn’t able to get any assistance. Why?

Flip for Answer

If your student has not completed a FERPA Consent for Disclosure, giving the college consent to release information to any/all outside parties listed on the form, then no one else can get information about your student’s record, even someone that can access your information electronically as your student’s proxy. The Consent for Disclosure can be completed online. Please share your PIN and answer to your security question with those you want to give access to your information.

Flip for Answer

I am listed on my student’s FERPA Release Form, but I can’t access his or her financial information online. Why?

Flip for Answer

Granting proxy access is separate from submitting the Consent for Disclosure form. Your student will need to log into Self-Service, and designate you as his or her proxy. You will receive a username/password via email, and then you’ll be able to log into Self-Service and view his or her billing and financial aid information.

Flip for Answer

I am trying to log in to Proxy Access, but I am unable to do so. Why?

Flip for Answer

If you have your username and password and unable to get into the system, it could be because the system is down for maintenance. Our maintenance schedule is typically Monday evenings from 5-9pm. If you are trying to log in on a Monday and it’s not working, please try again after 9pm or later in the week. If that’s not the case, please contact the Financial Services Office at (989) 463-7144 or email at financialservices@alma.edu.
