The Billing System

  • You will receive a statement each month (with the exception of July, August and December) if you have an outstanding balance
  • Miscellaneous charges are payable upon receipt of your monthly statement
  • We consider tuition, room, board, and other expenses to be a joint obligation for both parents and students

About Your Billing Statement

Q. Why does my billing statement not agree with my Financial Plan?
A. There are several reasons. The Financial Plan reflects ALL forms of aid, but the statement only reflects actual funds received. For example, loan payments are not received until after the student is attending classes.

Q. Why aren’t my loans reflected on the billing statement I received?
A. Loans are not disbursed by the lender until the semester has begun and all financial aid paperwork has been completed.

Q. Why doesn’t my work study show up on my statement? It is on my Financial Plan.
A. Work study is an available aid source and is shown on the Financial Plan; however, the funds are paid directly to the student and not applied to the student account.

Q. Why does my statement only show half of my loan?
A. Usually loans are divided equally between the fall and spring semesters.

Q. Where did my $500 deposit go?
A. The $300 payment is a reservation fee that is held until the student leaves the College. The $200 payment is a room deposit that is applied to the student account as a payment when the account is billed for the upcoming semester.

Q. When can I expect to receive my refund?
A.  After the semester begins, if you have a credit balance, the College has up to 14 days to process a refund check. For questions regarding refunds, contact Joan Ochs at .
