Monthly Payment Plan*

Climb Credit offers loans to ACE students because we have a proven track record in helping working professionals advance their careers. Climb helps you invest in your career and meet your financial goals.

Through Climb, you can make monthly payments over the length of a program. Total tuition and fees—plus a $150 Origination Fee—will be divided by the length of your chosen program to determine the monthly amount due. For example, a 34-credit master’s program, paid for in monthly installments, would cost approximately $512.94 per month.

*May not be available in all 50 states. Loans are originated by Climb Investco, LLC (Registered as Climb Credit Investco, LLC in Florida). California Finance Lender #60DBO-44527. 

Climb payment plan should be selected if you would like to make monthly payments over the length of the program. Total tuition and fees plus a $150 Origination Fee will be divided by the length of your selected program to determine the monthly amount due. All payments are due by the 15th of each month. 

Estimated Payment amounts are as follows: $540.67/mo. for 31-credit master’s programs; $522.94/mo. for 34-credit master’s programs; $494.50/mo. for 34-credit MAT Elementary and Secondary programs; $475.08/mo. for 64-credit doctorate programs; $548.76/mo. for 37-credit specialist programs. All figures are total cost including ACE fees, except any applicable servicer fee. The actual total cost or payment amounts could be higher or lower. Students-at-Large are not eligible for the monthly payment plan. 

If you request a Leave of Absence per standard College policy, scheduled monthly payments will not be suspended or deferred. Following submission of the Application, you will receive additional information and instructions from Climb Credit, ACE’s third-party administrator, to complete the Monthly Payment agreement. Should you select the Monthly Payment Plan option and the Monthly Payment agreement is not completed before your term start date or within 30 days, whichever comes first, your payment selection will automatically default to “Payment Course-by-Course,” and payment will be due according to standard published tuition payment deadlines. 

Please be aware your degree will not be conferred and official transcripts will not be made available until all tuition and fees are paid in full. Course retakes or courses required due to failure to pass program benchmarks are not covered by the monthly payment plan. 

These costs must be paid out-of-pocket at the time of enrollment.
