Brown's Installment Payment Plan (IPP)

Managed by the Bursar's Office, Brown's IPP enables students to make interest-free monthly installments to cover each semester’s tuition, housing, meals and required fees. The IPP is available for the fall and spring semesters only. Enrollment in the plan for fall semester begins late June; enrollment in the plan for spring semester begins mid-November. Each semester of enrollment requires a $75 non-refundable enrollment fee. The IPP can be updated once your financial aid award is complete. Typically, awards for the upcoming year are completed mid to late June. Details and application instructions are available on the Bursar's Office website or by calling (401) 863-2484.
