Payment Options

Saint Anselm College offers several payment options. To avoid late fees, interest charges, or other penalties, semester balances should be paid in full by the due date above. Balances can be made by cash or check (made payable to Saint Anselm College) or using one of our online payment options. Saint Anselm College has partnered with Tuition Management Systems (TMS) to offer the following online tuition payment options.

One Time Payments: Pay online using electronic check (no fee) or by credit card (subject to 2.75% fee). To make a one-time tuition payment online please visit anselm.afford.com/paynow.

Monthly Payment Plans: In a continued effort to assist the families of our students, Saint Anselm College offers a Monthly Payment Plan (MPP) as an alternative to our standard payment arrangements. MPP allows you to spread your education expenses over five smaller monthly installments, which are paid over the course of the semester. Your only cost is a non-refundable $50 semester enrollment fee.

  • Monthly Processing: Once enrolled, you will be billed monthly in accordance with the Monthly Payment Schedule. Automatic monthly deductions from checking or savings are available at no additional cost.
  • Fees and Other Charges The $50 enrollment fee is a semester fee and is non-refundable. A $30 service fee will be charged to your TMS account for any payment returned for insufficient funds or which is not collectible for any other reason. A $40 late fee will be charged to your student account when payment is not made by the due date.
  • Failure to Pay In the event you fail to comply with the Monthly Payment Schedule, your enrollment in the MPP will be terminated and any remaining balance on the student's account will be due in full.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When will we receive a bill? When is the payment due?
    • The fall semester tuition bills will be mailed by the first week of July. Payment is due by the first day of August.
    • The spring semester bill will be sent out in mid-December. Payment will be due by January 2nd. 

    Once the semester tuition bills have been mailed, students will have access to their tuition statement through the Student Account Center. Periodic reminders will be emailed to you asking you to check your online statement and remit any balance due.

  • How much can I deduct for the Federal Direct Loan?

    As long as you have completed the online loan counseling and the Federal Direct Master Promissory Note, one-half of the freshmen Federal Direct Loan amount of $3,500.00 will be disbursed to the school 15 days before the beginning of the fall semester. The balance of the loan will be disbursed at the beginning of the spring semester. Origination fees will be deducted from the loan amount at the time of disbursement.

  • What about the PLUS loan that I applied for?

    One-half of the PLUS loan will be disbursed 15 days before the beginning of the fall semester. The second disbursement will be received in January for the spring semester. If you have completed the Federal Direct Master Promissory Note and the Saint Anselm College Federal Direct Plus Loan Request form, you may deduct the first disbursement from the balance due for the fall semester. Origination fees will be deducted from the loan amount at the time of disbursement.

  • I applied for an alternative education loan. How is that applied?

    Recent changes in federal law require that several different steps must be taken before an alternative loan can be processed. These generally include:

    • completion of the loan application by the student, normally online;
    • first disclosure providing general terms of the loan;
    • completion of a self-certification form by the student;
    • acknowledgement and acceptance by the student of the terms provided in the second disclosure;

    Once all these steps have been taken, and the loan has been certified by the Office of Financial Aid, one-half of the loan amount will be disbursed for the fall semester. The remainder of the loan will be disbursed in January for the spring semester.

  • What about outside scholarships?

    If you received a scholarship, it will be sent to the college for the fall semester, you can deduct the amount from the balance due. However, you cannot deduct a scholarship, or that portion of a scholarship, that is applicable to the second semester. Please forward a copy of the scholarship award letter to both Student Financial Services and the Office of Financial Aid.

  • Is there an ATM machine on campus?

    An ATM machine is located in Davison Hall. It is owned and operated by Citizens Bank.
