You may then continue to make payments at any time in minimum increments of $25. Pay-As-You-Go contracts must be completed 45 days before intended use.

For example if you choose the Limited Benefits plan and choose an initial payment of $1,000 you will have purchased 2.088 credit hours. Future payments will be added to this initial payment and the number of credit hours will be recalculated with each payment received.
