Monthly Electronic Transfer (MET) Plan
The MET Plan is a 10- or 12-month payment plan offered by the Business Office. Payments for the 10-month plan are scheduled from June through March, and those for the 12-month plan are scheduled from June through May. Both are automatically deducted from a savings or checking account on the 10th of each month. There is a yearly fee for this service ($110/10-month and $175/12-month) but no interest charge. Applications are mailed to students each spring. For further information, contact the Business Office, firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 280-2292.
- Federal Work Study (FWS) is a need-based program. If FWS is awarded and accepted, we will assign you to a position on campus. The hourly pay rate begins at $7.25 and increases with grade-level advancement.
- University Employment is a non-need based on-campus work program through the Student Employment Office, which keeps a current listing of positions.
- The Career Center coordinates all off-campus employment opportunities.
Independent 529 Plan
Independent 529 Plan allows you to prepay tuition today that your child can later use at Creighton University. Creighton is among the hundreds of the private colleges participating in the program. Account holders prepay a percentage of tuition, up to 100 percent, on a tax-free basis and receive the value of that percentage of tuition when their child enrolls, regardless of the subsequent cost increase. Currently, there are over 5,000 account holders.
