CASHNet Monthly Payment Plan
Automatic Recalculation of Installment Payments
Smith offers semester payment plans which allow students to pay their semester balance in four equal installments. Payments are due on the 10th of the month. You can sign up for a payment plan in CASHNet, Smith’s student billing system.
Payment plan monthly installments will automatically recalculate to reflect any changes in charges or credits.
- If a change occurs within 10 days of an upcoming installment due date, recalculation locks in the upcoming installment amount and will only spread the change over any remaining payments.
- A notification of the change in monthly installments will be sent to the plan holder when recalculation occurs
