Budget Tuition Plans (BTP)

Virginia Tech is pleased to offer the Budget Tuition Plans (BTP), a convenient method of planning and budgeting University cost. The Budget Tuition Plans can cover all, or part, of a semester's institutional charges.

By using direct debits to a checking account, the BTP allows you to divide your cost into 4 monthly installments instead of paying one lump sum by the tuition payment deadline date.

The Budget Tuition Plan is not available for Summer or Winter Sessions.

There are two types of semester payment plans. Decide which is right for you.

    The Fixed Payment Plan:
  • Allows participants to define their maximum payment.
  • You choose the total amount you wish to pay for the term. That total is then divided into 4 equal monthly debits.
  • Does not automatically increase or decrease based on the student's account balance.
  • Only one fixed plan per student.

    The Variable Plan:
  • Automatically adjusts scheduled debits/payments based on the student's current account balance for the semester.
  • Increases and decreases to plan amounts occur as new charges and new credits post to the student's account.
  • Payment amount will be locked in place 7 days prior to each month's debit date, although the debit amount can decrease if payment is made on the student account from a different source.
  • Only one Variable Plan per student.
