As students of Springfield College, you have certain financial obligations to the College based on your registration and College policies. While your obligations have not changed, the College is implementing a formal process for students to acknowledge and accept those obligations. This is considered to be a best-practice in higher education, as it ensures students are aware of their financial obligations to the College and the related College policies.
Electronic acceptance of the Financial Obligation through PrideNET will be required for all students registered for the Spring 2019 semester by February 15, 2019.
Please review the Agreement. If you have any questions or concerns about the Agreement, please contact the Business Office at firstname.lastname@example.org (413)748-3183.
Please note that this Agreement will be in effect for this upcoming Spring Semester (2019). Going forward, the Agreement will be required to be signed prior to the Fall Semester and will cover the full academic year.
Springfield College offers two payment options for students to pay their tuition.
- Students may pay tuition charges less any approved financial aid by the semester due date. We encourage students to make their payment online from our secure portal. Online payments from a checking account will not incur a fee. Online credit/debit card payments will incur a fee. Online payments are reflected on the account immediately. Checks mailed can be lost or stolen and may take up to two weeks to be received and posted.
Please note that your financial aid award will show as a pending credit on your account. If your file is incomplete, that pending credit will drop off after the add/drop period. It will be reinstated once your file is complete and financial aid reviews. If you are unable to pay your balance, you will incur a monthly late fee and a hold will be placed on your account.
- The College offers a Monthly Payment Plan which extends payments over three or four months. Please see the schedule below. There is a $25 enrollment fee per term to utilize the plan.
|Summer Term||Fall Term||Spring Term|
|25% Aug. 1||25% Jan. 1|
|25% May 1||25% Sept. 1||25% Feb. 1|
|25% June 1||25% Oct. 1||25% Mar. 1|
|25% July 1||25% Nov. 1||25% Apr. 1|
Students within the following categories are required to sign up for the Payment Plan:
A. If a student does not expect to receive financial aid and cannot pay the tuition charges in full at the time of registration, but can make payments on the above applicable dates, they must sign up for the Payment Plan.
B. If a student has received a financial aid decision letter, the letter must be presented to the staff person handling registration. If the student's awarded financial aid does not cover the entire semester's charges, they must either pay the tuition balance or sign up for the Payment Plan.
C. If a student has not met the published admissions and financial aid deadlines, and consequently has not received a financial aid decision letter by the time registration begins, the student must sign up for the partial payment plan option for the full amount of the tuition charges while pending notification of financial aid. The amount of the payments can be adjusted later, when the student receives their financial aid award letter. Please be aware that it is the student's responsibility to contact the Instructional Campus to arrange adjustments.
Please note: If a student has tuition reimbursement from an employer that is dependent on a grade, the student will need to pay their balance and then request reimbursement from their employer. If the employer pays Springfield College directly, the student will receive a refund. We recommend the student set up an eRefund account so their refund will be direct deposited into the bank account they set up.

Past Due Account Policy
Students whose accounts are not paid in full by the tuition due date are not able to participate in residence hall room selection, receive transcripts, or a diploma and are not permitted to register for a new semester until the balance owed is paid in full. Payments not received by the due date will be subject to a late fee of $75 for each month a balance is past due.
Account with a past due balance of 30 days or more may be placed in collections. If an account is referred to an outside collection agency, the student is responsible for all collection costs, including agency fees, attorney fees and court costs, in addition to the amount(s) owed to the college. Additional action, including credit bureau reporting and a requirement of upfront payment for any future registration, may also apply.
