Dear Graduate Student:

A very cordial welcome-or welcome back- to Sarah Lawrence! This letter contains important information about your financial obligations to the College while you are enrolled as a student during the academic year.

Please read the Checklist and Instructions for Making Payment below, which will guide you through each step of this process. As you follow the checklist, you will review each billing entry on your Statement of Account for the semester. You may decide to select or refuse various optional services, such as the Health Insurance Program or the Tuition Refund Insurance.

The number of credits you take determines tuition for the semester. If you intend to take a different number of credits than the number for which you were billed or if you are unclear about the number of credits you will be taking, please contact Graduate Studies at (914) 395-2371 or

If you paid an enrollment deposit it is credited on the statement.

If you are a student receiving a financial aid package that covers tuition, your account will be credited through that package. If you are anticipating a financial aid award and do not see it recorded on the bill, please contact the Financial Aid Office at (914) 395-2570.

The College must receive payment in full for the semester (or the amount required by your Monthly Payment Plan) by the due date on your bill. For most students this will be July 14, 2023 for the Fall 2022 semester and by December 22, 2023 for the Spring 2023 semester. 

Please note that you will not be allowed to register until all financial obligations to the College have been met. Any exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Office of Student Accounts prior to registration.

A statement of the College’s refund policies can be found here, and also appears in the College catalog.

If you have any questions, please contact us at 914-395-2550. For financial aid inquiries, please call the Financial Aid Office at 914-395-2570.
