Haverford Grants and other confirmed Financial Aid from the College are credited directly to your account, half each semester. Federal Direct Stafford, PLUS loans, and outside scholarships and grants will not appear on your bill or be credited to your account until the funds are received by the Business Office, which is normally only a few days before the start of the semester. Therefore, you may deduct the semester disbursement (which is normally one half of the total) of any confirmed Loan, Scholarship, or Grant amount from the account balance due. Please remember to deduct the fee portion from your Direct Loan amount before calculating your account balance payment. On-campus employment (Federal Work Study) is paid directly to the student once a month by Student Payroll for hours worked. Specific questions regarding Financial Aid including loan applications should be directed to the Financial Aid Office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-896-1350).
All students are required by Haverford College to have current and sufficient health insurance and are billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) premium for the policy period 8/1 through 7/31 for each academic year, which will appear as a charge on the first bill for the Fall semester. If you are currently enrolled in an individual or family health insurance plan and do not need the insurance provided by Haverford College, you must complete an online waiver process by going to www.firststudent.com, selecting Haverford College, and entering the required information. More information regarding the waiver deadline submission date and other Health Services requirements can be found on the College’s Health Services website. Additional information about Haverford’s SHIP, including brochures and insurance coverages, can be found at www.firststudent.com.
First year students are required to be on the full board plan both semesters of their first year at the College. Upperclass students are required to be on the full board plan unless they are living at 710 College Ave, 773 College Ave, the Ira De A. Reid House or the Haverford College Apartments, all housing where there are full kitchens. Residents in these locations may choose to purchase a meal plan. Students will receive email notification of their ability to choose a partial or full meal plan after room draw. Students who have made an election to participate in a meal plan will be billed for the plan of their choosing. Enrollment in partial meal plans may not be changed after start of classes.

Haverford College Payment Plan
Students who prefer to pay tuition and fees in monthly installments may do so through a plan provided by Higher One. The 10-month plan begins May 15th and concludes February 15th and is offered as an annual plan only. Enrollment is open until August 15th however missed payments must be made at the time of enrollment. One half of the annual plan is credited to the Student bill each semester. There is a small enrollment fee. For additional information or to enroll please visit https://tuitionpaymentplan.com. Higher One may also be reached by phone at 800-635-0120.
Late payments are subject to a 1% monthly late fee, including delinquent payments on Higher One payment plan accounts. Unpaid accounts are also subject to cancellation of OneCard privileges, participation in the meal plan, exclusion from Room Draw, and the withholding of transcripts. Please be advised that students whose accounts are not satisfied before the start of classes are subject to dismissal from the College. If there are any outstanding charges at the end of the term, no diploma or official transcript will be issued. Transcripts may be withheld at any time for non-payment. Your cooperation is appreciated.
Students can access the College’s BIONIC system through the Student Center, Finance Section under Account Inquiry. Normally it takes 1 or 2 days (after receipt by the College) for check payments to be applied to your student account balance. During peak payment times, such as the beginning of the semester, or during holiday periods, the application of payments could take a little longer. Wire payments normally are applied the next business day. ACH payments usually take 2 to 3 business days to be processed and applied to your student account.
The refund percentage depends upon the date of a student's withdrawal as certified by the Dean's Office. Student withdrawals must have the approval of the Dean. A full refund of tuition, fees, room and board will be made the first day of classes each semester. Thereafter, refunds are subject to the following schedule:
For the academic year 2017-2018, no refunds will be made after November 17, 2017 and April 6, 2018. For purposes of those calculations, each week ends on a Friday and excludes fall and spring break weeks. The refund will then be made to federal loan and grant programs in which the student was involved that semester, in accordance with federal regulations. Any Haverford grant will be reduced by at least the percentage of the tuition refund. If a refund is due to the state, institutional and/or private aid programs, this will be made before any refund is made directly to the student and/or family.
Students who decide to drop from the room and board plans after the first day of classes (without withdrawing from the College) will receive a pro-rata refund less a withdrawal penalty. No such refund is made during the last six weeks of the semester.
Students who receive federal student aid are also subject to a separate federal Title IV funds refund policy.
As a supplement to the college refund schedule, we offer an optional insurance program, The Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) through A.W.G. Dewar, Inc.
The Tuition Refund Plan, plus the college's refund, provides 100% of your insured tuition and fees if you withdraw from classes due to a covered personal physical illness or accident. For withdrawals due to psychological illness, benefits will return up to 60% of insured fees. Enrollment forms with complete details are mailed to students in July or an application may be completed online. The TRP provides coverage (according to the terms of the policy) for tuition, fee, room and board charges. Benefits under the Tuition Refund Plan can provide a valuable resource for students who need to withdraw for medical reasons.
Contact A.W.G. Dewar, Inc., at (617) 774-1555 or www.collegerefund.com for more information or to apply.
Students are charged full tuition for each of the first eight semesters they are in attendance at the College. Students who finish seven semesters without completing all degree requirements will be required to enroll for a final semester at full tuition if the number of credits needed is more than one. In the event that these students enter their eighth semester at Haverford needing a single credit or less for degree completion as certified by the Dean and Registrar of the College, the tuition charge will be at the Special Student Rate of $6,535.
A ninth-semester student is charged at the Special Student Rate of $6,535 per credit.
Your student ID card (OneCard) also functions as a room/building access card and a stored debit card. Students may elect to establish an account on the College OneCard to pay for books, merchandise and food at College dining locations and the Bookstore. The card can also be used at certain vending machines and at laundry locations on campus. The OneCard can be used at both Haverford and Bryn Mawr College. OneCard information, along with a mobile app, can be found at brynmawr.edu/onecard. The GetFunds site is where students can make deposits, and access details of their OneCard activity.
Your bill reflects charges which are included in your Study Abroad (SA) program for which Haverford will make payment to your host institution in accordance with Haverford Study Abroad policy. You may also receive a bill from the SA institution for room or meals if you are on a Tuition only program. (Haverford will bill you for tuition and pay tuition only to the SA institution). Questions regarding SA cost or policies should be directed to Rebecca Avery, Director of Study Abroad at (610) 896-1230 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
