Dear Student and Parents:

This letter contains important information about your financial obligations to the College while you are enrolled as a student in an SLC Abroad Program during the academic year.

The College must receive payment in full for the semester (or the amount required by your Monthly Payment Plan) by July 15, 2024 for the Fall 2024 semester and December 20, 2024 for the Spring 2025 semester. 

Please read the Program Housing Information below for specific information related to housing for your program.

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.

  1. Please be sure to review your Statement of Account for accuracy.  Statements are sent electronically to the Sarah Lawrence College email account.  
  2. Health Insurance. All students will be charged for a mandatory study abroad health insurance program. The study abroad insurance will only cover students while they are outside the United States. Students must still enroll in either the College’s Health Insurance Program or submit proof of their own health insurance to ensure they have coverage in the United States before they leave for their program abroad, and upon their return to the United States (during breaks and/or the end of the program).

    Please review the information detailing the Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Program being offered to Sarah Lawrence students. This coverage is required unless you have equivalent insurance and assume full responsibility for all medical costs.

    You may decline the Health Insurance Program only by completing the Health Insurance waiver form by July 15, 2024.  If you do not complete the waiver form, your account will be charged for the insurance. Students in our Cuba Program may not waive the Health Insurance.

  3. Tuition Refund Insurance. Please review the information detailing the Tuition Refund Insurance Plan being offered as an option to Sarah Lawrence students by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. This plan provides for the refund of up to 70% of your tuition, room, board and fees (less any refund or credit due to you from the College) if you withdraw complete because of personal illness or injury. Sarah Lawrence College grants and scholarships are credited back to the college.

    You may decline the Tuition Refund Insurance only by mailing a completing the online Tuition Refund Insurance waiver form by July 15, 2024. If you do not complete the waiver form, your account will be charged for the insurance.  
  4. Other Adjustments. If you have any financial aid credits (grants or loans) that are not included on your Statement of Account please confirm your awards with the Financial Aid department.  Confirmation is considered to be the receipt of an Award Letter.  Your award letter is available on the MySLC portal.  

    Work-Study will not be credited to your account through financial aid or any other form of advance payment.

    If you have applied for financial aid and no financial aid credit appears on your Statement of Account, your financial aid file is most likely incomplete. Your application cannot be processed and/or awards granted until the completion of all required documents. If this is your situation,  please visit your application portal/financial aid checklist to submit missing requirements.  Since our financial aid funds are limited, awards may not be available to late applicants.
  5. Monthly Payment Plan. You may sign up for payment plans each semester electronically through your Nelnet portal.  Plans are made for the total amount due each term and have an enrollment fee of $55.   If you are interested in making payments to the College on a monthly basis, please review the Payment Plan information.
  6. Complete and sign the Terms of Payment Policy.
  7. Complete and sign the Information Release Consent Form.
  8. Make payment to the College in the Amount Due.

    Students and parents may make payments from a checking, savings, or credit card account online. Your student account will be updated two working days after the date of your payment.

    If you choose not to make an online payment, you may write a check payable to Sarah Lawrence College. Please write your ID number on the check to ensure that payment is posted to the proper account.  A fee of $30 will be charged for any check returned by the bank for insufficient funds.

    If by mail, send the check directly to the Student Accounts Office, Sarah Lawrence College, One Mead Way, Bronxville, New York 10708.
