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 makes this convenience available through Tuition Payment Plan (800-635-0120). The College does not have an internally administered partial-payment plan.
Kenyon offers an advance-payment plan for a minimum period of two years. The plan provides for advance payment of fees at a discounted rate based on current market yields on AA rated (or better) noncallable bonds. Under this plan, future increases are paid as they occur.
