Optional Charges

Optional K-Card Deposit

Optional K-Card funds are deposited into a separate account and accessed through the student's ID card.  The K-Card is used primarily at the campus bookstore and campus laundries. It is also accepted by many on-campus businesses for miscellaneous purchases. If you will not be electing to pay this charge, please complete the K-Card Waiver form here.  If the total due on the student tuition account is less than or equal to this charge after the billing invoice due date, we will cancel or reduce this optional K-Card charge. For more information about the K-Card, please visit the K-Card page.

Optional Student Health Insurance - Plan 2

If the student is covered by other ACA comparable insurance and wishes to waive the optional student health insurance offered by the College an online waiver must be completed by August 31, 2020.  Waive or enroll beginning August 17, 2020 using this form.  Please note that we cannot cancel the optional student health insurance charge without written proof of comparable coverage from the student or parent. Please pay close attention to the waiver due date of August 31, 2020.

Optional Tuition Refund Insurance

All students will be charged for Optional Tuition Refund Insurance during the fall semester billing and will be automatically enrolled in this tuition insurance program unless they complete an online opt out waiver at no later than August 31, 2020.  The waiver site opened Aug 1, 2020. The cost of the insurance coverage for the 2020-21 academic year is $197 per semester for students who are on campus; the rate is $159.00 per semester for students who are studying remotely.

Financial Aid

"Memo items" on the billing invoice reflect anticipated payments for institutional financial aid, as well as outside and Title IV loans, as reported by the Office of Financial Aid. If a loan or other type of expected financial aid is not reflected as a payment or as a memo item, please contact the Office of Financial Aid to verify that all of the paperwork has been completed.

The College allows credit for outside awards not received by the tuition due date only if the amount has been confirmed in writing to the Office of Financial Aid. It must be confirmed that payment will be made directly to Kenyon College with the expected disbursement date and method of payment. Since the College does not dictate the disbursement of these awards, they will not be reflected in the billing "Memo Items." Please call or email the Office of Financial Aid regarding these awards.


The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act protects the rights of student education records. Kenyon cannot release any information concerning a student's tuition billing account or financial aid unless we have received written consent from the student authorizing the release of this information.
