Please pay very close attention to the information that you receive from the Accounting Office. They will provide you with detailed information about your expenses at Earlham and about your payment of those expenses. It is important to check your bills to be sure that information is accurate.
You and your parents should receive their Fall Semester Bill in the summer. Before the semester begins, you or your parents are required to make a payment for the semester or agree to an acceptable payment arrangement with the Accounting Office. International students are permitted to make full payments or to pay the first installment of their payment arrangement on Confirmation Day (the day before classes begin.) All payment arrangements must be approved prior to your arrival on campus. Registration could be delayed and additional late registration fees could be charged if payment arrangements are not made or payment is not received by the day before classes begin.
You will receive a monthly statement in your campus mailbox if you have a balance due on your account. In addition to tuition, room and board, which appear on the Fall Semester Bill (payment due in August) and the Spring Semester Bill (payment due in January), other charges may be billed to the student account such as library fines, lost key fines, late registration fees, health service charges, insurance fees, cost of music lessons and overload charges (taking more than 18 semester hours in any given semester.) Please pay these charges as they occur.
The Accounting Department must have an accurate address to send you Semester Billing Statements. During the school year, all monthly statements are mailed to the student’s campus mailbox. If you have questions about where statements are sent, please contact Mary Scott in the Accounting Department at (765) 983-1333.
