Payment Options

eCornell students can choose from two convenient ways to pay for their certificate programs:

OPTION 1: Prepay in full using a credit card or PayPal. This is the lowest cost option available and allows you to schedule all your courses during enrollment.

OPTION 2: eCornell’s Pay As You Go program. Pay in monthly installments and enroll in one course every 1-2 months. eCornell requires no credit checks. (See more information below.)

How Does eCornell’s Pay As You Go Program Work?

eCornell students can enjoy the convenience of doing their coursework while paying for their certificate programs on a monthly basis with our convenient pay as you go plans. Payments are made via credit card only.


Pay As You Go Program Enrollment is Easy!

eCornell offers flexible pay as you go plans* that allow payment to be made over a period of months rather than paying in full at the time of registration. For complete details contact an eCornell Enrollment Counselor toll-free at (866) 326-7635 or (607) 330-3200, email, or chat with us now.
