Online Bill Payment

Franklin College has partnered with Tuition Management Systems (TMS) to create an online Student Account Center through which students can view or print semester bills, review account activity, and make payments on their accounts. Students must register for access to the Student Account Center by responding to an email they receive from noreply@afford.com or by calling TMS at 800.307.6838. Once students are registered for online access, they may invite parents or others as authorized users to have online access. Due to Federal student privacy regulations (FERPA), parents may only access the Student Account Center if they are granted this access by the student.
An email is sent each semester to all students and authorized users who are registered with the Student Account Center when bills are ready to view.
