About Payment Plans

Outlier is excited to partner with Klarna to provide students with payment plan options to make our courses even more accessible.

Our mission is to reduce the cost of college and reduce student debt. 

Klarna Payment Plans are currently available to US customers only.

What is the interest rate?

Outlier is excited to offer a 0% interest rate* on our payment plans through Klarna. That means that you only pay for the tuition cost of the course!


Is a credit check required?

If you wish to take advantage of Outlier’s payment plans through our partner, Klarna, a soft credit check is completed. This type of credit check is not reported to the credit bureaus and does not affect your credit score.

You can read more about credit checks on Klarna's website:

How do payment plans through Klarna work?

We offer two different types of payment options for students:

  1. Klarna’s “Pay in 4” program allows students to split their course tuition into 4 equal payments paid every 2 weeks.
  2. Financing - Pay off your tuition in affordable monthly installments over 6, 12, or 18 months.

At checkout, select Klarna as your form of payment, and you will be redirected to the Klarna website.


If you are taking advantage of the Pay in 4 option, you will see a breakdown of your payment amounts and due dates, and you will simply click "Place Order" to enter your credit card details in the appropriate fields.


If you wish to apply for financing through Klarna, highlight this option as your payment method and click Place Order to apply.

When are the payment plan due dates?

Your plan details are handled by our payment plan provider, Klarna. You can log in to your account via the Klarna app or the website to check your remaining balance, payment due date, or update your account information.

If you have other questions about your payment plan, you can contact Klarna Support directly 24/7 using the live chat feature.

You may also be able to find answers to frequently asked questions on Klarna’s Customer Support page.
