BAMA Plan Installment Payment Option

The BAMA Plan, Bama's Affordable Monthly Alternative, is a simple, monthly budget approach to paying tuition, residence hall, Dining Dollars, and optional meal plan charges for the academic year (fall and spring semesters). The 10 manageable monthly installments begin in June. Late application is possible through July — with a larger initial payment. BAMA Plan convenience can be yours, interest-free, for just a $50.00 annual participation fee.

Signing up for the BAMA Plan and making payments toward anticipated registration expenses do not ensure or affect class enrollment, room assignments, or meal plan purchases. Students must apply for dorm assignments through Residential Life, apply for meal plans through Bama Dining, and enroll for classes in accordance with the Office of Academic Records and University Registrar procedures. Meal plan contracts must be completed and returned to Bama Dining by specified deadlines to be added to the student's registration bill.

Summer term charges are not eligible for the BAMA Plan.
