Paying Your Bill

At Saint Mike's, all charges on your student bill have to be paid in full prior to the beginning of your first class. Exceptions to this policy are made for pending financial aid, deferred payment agreements, or payments through CashNet. While other collection activity may be taken, accounts with unpaid balances for reasons other than those stated above will result in a registration hold for the following semester.

Please note that a $50 deposit per course will reserve your place in the course. The deposit is deducted from the total tuition due, but is non-refundable. You will need to pay the remaining balance prior to the beginning of your first class.

The fine print

It is important to note that balances may change over the course of the semester as new charges are added for such things as lab fees, fines, etc. Saint Michael's will send out periodic billing statements during the academic year to communicate these charges. Your prompt payment is appreciated. 

Saint Michael's College reserves the right to change various prices and policies on a prospective basis.

A note to Financial Aid recipients:

Refunds are not available until your lender/guarantor has paid Saint Michael's College or your account is paid in full. No advances can be made against pending Financial Aid.
