Tuition, Bills & Paying

  • How much is tuition?

  • What financing options are available to my family to meet our family responsibility?

    In addition to family savings that you have earmarked for this educational investment, students and parents may apply for various loans or financing options such as our interest-free Monthly Payment Plan, PLUS and private educational loans. Home equity loans or lines of credit may also provide an advantageous source of funding. Parents need to consult with their employers, unions, fraternal lodges and religious organizations to inquire if their sons or daughters are eligible for a private scholarship. Use our links to other useful sites for access to additional, reputable, free private scholarship search engines.
  • Where and how can I pay my deposit?

    You can pay your non-refundable tuition and housing deposits online at www.iona.edu/paydeposit. You can also remit payment to Iona College, Student Financial Services, 715 North Avenue, new Rochelle, NY 10801.  

  • How do payment plans work and is it different then a loan from the bank?

    For a nominal enrollment fee, you have the option to spread your tuition and on-campus living charges (less aid) over the semester or trimester, interest-free, by enrolling in an Iona College payment plan.  Enrollment is required for each term. The Payment Plan is not a loan and no credit check is required. We offer an easy online enrollment process with interest-free equal monthly payments automatically debited from your bank account or credit card/debit card.

    Payments are processed on the 5th or 20th of each month and will continue until the end of the term, when the balance will be paid in full. Please be aware that your plan may increase or decrease if there is a change in your financial aid.
