Please pay very close attention to the information that you receive from the Accounting Office. They will provide you with detailed information about your expenses at Earlham and about your payment of those expenses. It is important to check your bills to be sure that information is accurate.
All information about your account is online in our Student Account Center (SAC) administered by Tuition Management Systems (TMS). You will receive an email when a semester bill is ready to be viewed. In order to view your semester bills or account balance you must register for access to the SAC. You will be receiving an email to your Earlham email address from "firstname.lastname@example.org" with an invitation to register in late June or early July. You must also register your parents or others who pay your bills so that they, too, can have access to the SAC. Otherwise, they will be unable to see and pay your bills.
Fall charges are normally posted the first week of July with payment or approved payment arrangements due by the middle of August. If the balance due is not paid in full by the middle of August, or acceptable payment arrangements are not made with the Accounting Office by then, your account will be put on hold and you will be notified of that hold by email. Students with accounting holds may not register for classes. All payment arrangements must be approved prior to your arrival on campus. Your registration will be delayed and additional late registration fees could be charged if payment arrangements are not made or payment is not received by the day before classes begin.
In addition to tuition, room, and board, which appear on the Fall Semester Bill (payment due the middle of August) and the Spring Semester Bill (payment due in the beginning of January), other charges may be billed to the student account such as library fines, lost key fines, late registration fees, health service charges, insurance fees, cost of music lessons and overload charges (if you are taking more than 18 semester hours in any given semester). Please pay these charges as they occur.
