The official billing method of Saint Mary's College is electronic billing known as eBill.
Undergraduate tuition, room, board and related fees for each term are due before the first day of class. Although tuition is billed in two installments, food and housing charges for January Term are added to the spring term billing.
The Business Office will send you an electronic statement once you have registered for classes. This statement will reflect all charges known at the time, payments received, and financial aid posted to your account. Charges such as lab fees and/or instructional material fees will be billed as incurred. The Business Office sends statements at the end of each month for other charges incurred after registration (additional lab fees, library fines, etc.).
Graduate and Professional students are billed each month with tuition and fees due by the 15th of the following month. Tuition and related fees are billed before the first day of class and are due on the 15th of the month.
***The College must receive the FULL amount due on or before the due date indicated on the eBill. If full payment is not received by the due date, a late payment fee will be assessed, and future registration and continuing enrollment will be jeopardized. A hold will be placed on the student's account.
