Billing, Payment, and Financial Aid

Billing and Payment Due Dates

By registering for courses, students accept responsibility for the charges of the entire academic year, regardless

of the method of payment. The College bills for each semester separately. The bill for the fall semester is sent in early July and is due August 1. The bill for the spring semester is sent the first week in December and is due January 2.

Student Accounts sends an email containing a link to the electronic billing statement, (eBill) to the student’s official Bryn Mawr email address. The College no longer sends paper bills. Students are able to set up authorized payers (parents or others) who then can view bills online, make payments by electronic check or set up a payment plan when enrollment opens. Our third-party on-line processor for eBilling is Nelnet Business Solutions, (NBS). Students and authorized payers may make one-time ePayments through their QuikPAY product or utilize eCashier for the Automatic Monthly Payment Plan accessed through BIONIC.

The College’s payment plan, eCashier, enables monthly payment of all or part of semester fees in installments without interest charges. The cost of enrolling is a $25 nonrefundable fee per semester. Payments for the plan commence prior to the beginning of each term. Information about the payment plan is available from Student Accounts.

The College reserves the right to prevent a student from registering for classes, attending class or entering residence until payment of the College charges has been made each semester. No student may preregister for the next semester, participate in room draw, order a transcript, participate in summer internships, employment or fellowships, hold leadership positions, participate in graduation, or receive a diploma, until all accounts are paid, including the activities fee assessed by the student Self-Government Association officers. This fee covers class and hall dues and support for student organizations and clubs. All resident students are required to participate in the College meal plan.

A fee of $390 per semester will be charged to all undergraduates who are studying at another institution during the academic year and who will transfer the credits earned to Bryn Mawr College, with the exception of students in the Junior Year Abroad Program.

Students are permitted to reserve a room during the spring semester for the succeeding academic year, prior to payment of room and board fees, if they intend to be in residence during that year. Those students who have reserved a room but decide, after June 15, to withdraw from the College or take a leave of absence are charged a fee of $500. This charge is billed to the student’s account.

All entering students are required to make a deposit of $500. This deposit is applied to the student’s tuition account.
