Statement of student financial responsibility

Each student attending Earlham College assumes responsibility to pay all College-related expenses not covered by financial aid awarded by the College.

If a student’s account is delinquent and satisfactory payment arrangements have not been made, the College may take any steps necessary to collect the balance due including, but not limited to: preventing a student from registering for classes or confirming a previous registration, preventing a student from participating in housing lotteries, withholding transcripts or diplomas, asking a student to leave campus, turning an account over to a collection agency, or taking legal action to collect the balance due. Any costs incurred in collecting a student account, up to 50 percent of the balance due, will be charged to the student.

Students who withdraw from the College must make arrangements to meet all outstanding financial obligations to the College. Examples of such obligations are tuition and fees, room and board, library fines, bookstore accounts, health-related fees and so on. The student’s transcript will not be released until payment of all obligations has been made in full.

Each graduating senior must pay all financial obligations to the College prior to graduation. An Earlham College diploma will not be awarded until this obligation is met.

Earlham College Student Loans and Perkins Loans become due as stated in the promissory note signed by the student. Transcripts will not be released to students who are in default on payment of these loans.
