Dear Student and Parents:
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, the Health Insurance Program, or Tuition Refund Insurance. To do so you must complete the required waivers prior to the due date on your billing statement.
The College must receive payment in full for the semester (or the amount required by your Monthly Payment Plan) by July 16 for the fall semester and by December 31 for the spring semester. If we do not receive your payment by the due date, your account will be assessed a late payment fee equal to 1% of the past due balance or $10, whichever is greater.
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 requested in advance from and approved by the Office of Student Accounts prior to registration. The Office of Student Accounts may be reached at 914-395-2550.
If you have requested College-provided housing and we do not receive your payment by the due date, we will be required to cancel your room or guarantee of housing and you will forfeit your $500 housing deposit.
A statement of the College’s refund policies can be found here, and also appears in the College catalog.
If you have any questions, feel free to call the Student Accounts Office at 914-395-2550. For financial aid inquiries, please call the Financial Aid Office at 914-395-2570.
