Payments

During your enrollment at Harvey Mudd College, the Office of Student Accounts will be your main contact for paying tuition, fees, on-campus room and board and other authorized charges.

Payment Plans

HMC offers two convenientĀ payment plans for paying the college bill : a full payment plan and a monthly payment plan spread out over 10 months. A tuition payment agreement form is required, as it designates which payment method you wish to select.

Please choose the plan you prefer, sign and return the form to the Office of Student Accounts by June 10. If we do not receive the signed tuition payment agreement form by the date above, you will be placed on the full-payment plan.

Full-Payment Plan

Payment of all regular charges is due prior to the beginning of each semester. First-semester charges, less financial aid credits, if any, are due no later than Aug. 20. Second-semester charges, less financial aid credits, if any, are due no later than Dec. 20. Delinquent accounts are subject to a late charge of one percent of the delinquent amount.

Monthly Payment Plan

Annual charges may be paid in 10 monthly installments, five each semester. For the fall semester, monthly installments are due July through November. Installments are due December through April for the spring semester.

There is a $50 fee per semester for participation in the monthly payment plan. Please be aware that the use of this plan is a privilege that may be revoked for just cause by the Office of Student Accounts. The monthly installment amount is calculated by subtracting expected financial assistance minus loan fees, work study, non-deferred amounts and any past due amount from the account balance and dividing the difference by the number of remaining installments for that semester. You will receive a billing statement at the beginning of each month if you have an outstanding balance.

Payments are due upon receipt and become delinquent on the 20th of each month. Delinquent accounts are subject to a late charge of one percent of the delinquent amount.

Payment Methods

Harvey Mudd College offers four payment methods:

  • Mail (paper check or money order)
  • eCheck
  • Electronic fund transfer (EFT)
  • Cash
