Billing and Payment Policies

A student’s registration constitutes an agreement to make timely payment of all amounts due. Signatures or acknowledgements provided by the student electronically to Bryn Mawr College via college systems are valid and legally binding. Additionally, by accepting Bryn Mawr College's offer of admission and enrolling in classes, each student accepts responsibility for payment of all tuition and fees, including room and board, for which the student is liable. Students who do not make payment will be placed on a financial hold. The College does not assess late fees at this time.

Transcript Holds

Students with an unpaid balance after the due date will have their account placed on hold. This hold prevents the release of transcripts until the balance is paid in full. The hold displays in Bionic on the Tasks tile. Transcript holds are released daily once payment is made. For questions or to appeal a transcript hold, please contact the office.

Registration and Room Draw Holds

Students who do not resolve their balance during a term are prevented from registering for the next semester and from participating in room draw, if applicable. Email warnings are sent to students in advance of the hold being placed on the account. The hold will display on the Tasks tile in Bionic. Once a registration hold is on the account, receipt of funds must be confirmed before the hold will be lifted. This will take three business days for an electronic payment and ten business days for a paper check. Any expected financial aid funds must be disbursed to the student account. 

Graduation and Diploma Holds

Students with an unpaid balance are prevented from participating in graduation ceremonies and picking up academic regalia. Email warnings are sent to students in advance of graduation. Diplomas will not be released until all balances are paid in full.

Returned Check Fee

A $25 fee is assessed for a returned payment and charged to the student's account. This is in addition to any fees charged by the financial institution the payment was drawn on and any fees charged by Nelnet for processing. Please be sure funds are available when making payment by paper check or online and ensure account information is properly entered when paying online. If you are unsure of your routing or account number please check with your financial institution before making payment.
