The Villanova Tuition Payment Plan, offered through Tuition Management Systems (TMS), allows you to spread your balance out over 10 months for a small fee. Life insurance is included to cover the bill payer, along with a variety of other benefits.

Private Educational Loan Programs
Private Educational Loans are administered by private lenders and there are a variety of lending institutions that offer these. You should first apply for a Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loan and then consider the Direct PLUS Loan (if the student is dependent) or the Direct Graduate PLUS (if the student is a graduate student) and then, if additional funding is needed, apply for one of these loans.
