Finding your billing statement

  • Students can visit myCIA to view their statement for the upcoming semester.
  • Parents can visit the "My Students" link in the Parent Portal of myCIA.

Transact payment plan

A payment plan is an interest-free option that makes paying your remaining expenses manageable by dividing them into monthly payments. You can use a payment plan on its own, or combine it with financial aid, scholarships, and loans.

Through Transact, a third-party authorized vendor, you can set-up a monthly payment plan. This allows you to pay for the balance in monthly installments as opposed to one full payment each semester. The monthly payment plan divides your billing statement balance into more manageable payments, letting you to pay as you go. This is not a loan and there are no interest fees.

Fall payment plans wrap-up in December, so the earlier you sign up, the more months your payments are spread out. Sign up on or before July 4 for the 6-month payment plan.

There is a $50 fee per semester. Your first payment is due when you enroll.
