Assumption College follows a policy of billing students directly. Bills for each semester are available prior to the beginning of each semester. Students receive their billing statements electronically through their student portal. For your convenience, payments may be made electronically through the student account center or through the payment gateway www.assumption.afford.com.
Students will not be considered officially registered and, therefore, will not be issued class schedules or officially listed in the class roster until their bill is paid. Payments are applied to a student’s bill in the order of past due balance, fines, interest, fees including room and board, miscellaneous charges, and finally tuition.
Specific fees are often assessed after the student’s class schedule is fixed.
The college does not offer deferred payment plan. Students wishing to use an installment plan must make private arrangements with Tuition Management Services a payment plan provider which offers this type of plan on a fee basis. Information on this plan is available online http://assumption.afford.com or from the Student Accounts office.
Financial aid, loans, payments from deferred payment plans, etc., must be received by the payment due date each semester. Payments received after the due date will be assessed a $100 late fee. A late application for financial aid by a student does not excuse late fees charged by the College.
Student Account Center FAQs
What is the Student Account Center?
SAC is a portal that presents comprehensive student account information including Account Summary and Activity, Statements, and options to pay your bill including enrolling in a payment plan.
How do you access the Student Account Center?
- Due to student privacy regulations (FERPA), initial access to the SAC is granted to the student at assumption.afford.com on file at Assumption College.
- However, since additional family members are frequently a critical partner in this process, the student (once logged into the SAC) can extend invitations to additional participants to help manage their account.
If you would like to help manage the account, encourage your student to provide you with SAC access. They can do this through the Share Account Access section in the SAC.
FAILURE TO PAY COLLEGE FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS
Enrolled students may be suspended from the College for past due obligations, an action which includes removal of courses and prevention from course enrollment and campus housing for future terms. Students whose accounts are not in good standing may not be allowed to participate in the housing lottery. Current and former students will have a ﬁnancial hold placed on their “ofﬁcial” academic transcript. Past due obligations may be referred to a collection agency at the discretion of the College. In such cases, the student will be liable for any collection and legal fees which may total 50% of the outstanding bill.
Diplomas and official transcripts are released only upon full payment of all bills. All tuition, service charges, graduation fee, and miscellaneous fees, including library fees, must be paid in full by the announced graduation clearance deadline. Student accounts that are not fully paid by graduation clearance day are turned over to a collection agency if the account continues to be delinquent.
