Plan # 3 - Postponed Promissory Note
California Southern Law School has a tuition payment program which places a ceiling of $620 per month on the monthly installment payments. Students sign a postponed promissory note for the residual amount of each semester's tuition.
Students enrolling under the Postponed Payment Program are required to fill out a "ACH Debit or Credit Card Recurring Payment Authorization Form" for the payment of tuition after they cease to be a student at the law school.
Under this plan, students make 9 payments of $620 each school year totaling $5580. By paying this amount rather than the $7280 tuition and fees, students are postponing payment of $850 each semester, a total of $1700 for the year. Students sign two Postponed Payment Notes (PPNs) for $850 at 7% interest to pay the $1700 in postponed tuition. Interest does not begin to accrue until the end of the semester for which the note is written.
The student can remain on the Postponed Promissory Note plan as long as $620 per month payments are met in a timely manner.
When a student ceases to be enrolled, be it at the end of the first, second, third, or fourth year, the PPNs plus accrued interest are totaled into a single indebtedness amount. The student authorizes monthly ACH Debit or credit card payments of $620 on this amount 60 days after enrollment ends until the total indebtedness plus interest is paid in full. Students who enroll in this plan in 2015 can expect to owe approximately $8100 at the end of 4 years.
