Making it as Simple as Possible

Students with due charges receive periodic emails from Student Accounts. Your fall term payment is due mid-August. Spring term charges are billed in late December and are due in January. Account balances must be settled before you will be allowed to register for classes.

Tuition Prepayment Option (2019-2020)

You may wish to prepay future years of tuition and health services fees and lock in the 2019-20 rate of $24,468 per semester, thereby avoiding annual rate increases. The prepayment amount for a first-year is $195,744; a sophomore $146,808; and a junior $97,872. If you are receiving a need-based scholarship from the College, then you are not eligible to participate.

Please note that this program covers tuition and health service fees only, and does not include room, board, health insurance, or other fees. You and your family are responsible for paying these separate charges each semester, as instructed by your invoice. Outside scholarships may be applied toward these other charges.

Unused funds can be returned to the family at any time (without interest) for students studying out of residence or withdrawing. Enrollment in the Tuition Prepayment plan requires that you sign a contract with our office and you submit full payment by August 31, 2019. Contract requests received after August 31 will be assessed a late enrollment fee.
