Prior to the start of each term an E-bill showing charges and estimated financial aid is prepared for each student by the student accounts office. Hamline students may select one of the following payment options:
- Semester payment plan-fall term due August 15 and spring term due January 15 as billed; or
- Installment plan-tuition, fees, room and board are paid in monthly payments through Nelnet/Tuition Management Systems for an annual fee.
For students who officially withdraw from the university during a term, the amount of tuition owed is calculated from the date on record of their withdrawal or leave, not from the date the student ceases to attend classes. Students who officially withdraw from classes before the end of the 10th day of class for on campus programs, or the before the end of the 6th day of class for online degree completion programs, will not be responsible for any tuition charges. After that date, the amount of tuition owed will be calculated daily on an increasing scale based on the percentage of days in the term before the withdrawal date. Students who withdraw after 60 percent of the term has passed will be responsible for all tuition charges.
The same schedule is used to calculate the amount of tuition owed when a student drops from full-time to part-time or from overload to full-time.
Financial aid will be canceled or prorated as required by the programs. See the financial aid instruction guide for details.
Student fees and mandatory commuter declining balance assessed by the university or the Student Congress are not refundable.
Any discounts applied will be removed and not prorated in the withdrawal calculation.
It is important that students register during the stated registration periods. Students who fail to complete registration changes (add, drop, and withdraw) by the published deadlines will be charged a $50 late registration fee.
Late Payment Policy
Late payment penalties are imposed thirty days after the start of fall and spring semesters. For account balances of $1000 or more, a late payment fee of 5% (up to $500) will be assessed.
