Two bills are mailed each year for mandatory charges and an optional bookstore deposit. Fees for the first semester are due by August 15, for the second semester by December 15. Other charges, deposits, and fines incurred by the student are billed monthly as they are received by the Accounting Office.
All bills must be paid in full by their due date. Students are not officially registered for classes until the July and November invoices (due on August 15 and December 15 respectively) are paid in full.
Some parents prefer to pay tuition and other fees in equal monthly installments throughout the year. Kenyon offers Tuition Payment Plan, administered by Higher One. The Tuition Payment Plan allows you to pay College fees in eight convenient monthly payments commencing July 1. The cost of the plan is $55.00 annually.
If you enroll in the tuition payment eight-month plan, 50 percent of your contract would be credited toward first semester fees and 50 percent toward second semester fees. Even though the College credits the entire semester contract amount directly to the student's account, Kenyon receives money from Higher One as Higher One receives payments from clients. As a result, contracts must be kept current. All contracts, regardless of the date of contract enrollment, must be paid in full by February 1 of each academic year. Contracts delinquent by two payments will be terminated, with late fees, by Higher One. Terminated accounts will also be assessed a one and a half percent late payment penalty by the College, with the balance of the contract due immediately.
For additional information about Tuition Payment Plan you may contact Kenyon College Student Accounts at 740-427-5178 or call Higher One directly at 800-635-0120. The College does not have an internally administered monthly payment plan.
