Stetson University requires incoming students to complete the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE in order to receive institutional, need-based aid. This aid complements state and federal funds available to students.
The Private College 529 Plan
Stetson University has partnered with the Tuition Plan Consortium, LLC, to provide the Private College 529 Plan. This plan helps to control the cost of a college education by locking in today's tuition rates at more than 270 private colleges and universities across the country and beginning a prepayment plan.

Bipartisan Student Loan Certainty Act of 2013
During an Oval Office ceremony, President Barack Obama on Friday, Aug. 9, signed into law the student loan interest rate deal, under which interest rates will be based on the 10-year Treasury bill. The act, which Congress passed July 31, also sets interest rates at 2.05 percent for undergraduate Stafford (subsidized and unsubsidized); 3.6 percent for graduate Stafford; and 4.6 percent for PLUS (parents and graduate students). In addition, it includes caps: 8.25 percent for undergraduate Stafford; 9.5 percent for graduate Stafford; and 10.5 percent for PLUS. Loans will be "variable-fixed," meaning students would receive a new rate with each new loan, but then that rate would be fixed for the life of the loan.
Families may elect to enroll in an installment plan payment option or pay the balance in full by the first day of classes of the current term. A $100 non-refundable payment plan fee will be assessed each semester; 20 percent of the balance is due in the first month. For each term there are five monthly payments. These payments begin in August and January for the fall and spring semesters, respectively.
Please call the bursar's office at 386-822-7050 for more information or to set up a payment plan.
