Financial Agreement

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.

Students will need to e-sign the Financial Agreement in PrideNet. Access My Profile, then click on My Financial Obligation Agreement (on the left). If you are a new or transfer student starting in the spring or summer semester, the agreement will need to be e-signed prior to registering. 

Please review the Agreement. If you have any questions or concerns about the Agreement, please contact the Student Accounts Office at or (413)748-3183.

The Agreement will be required to be eSigned prior to the pre-registration period for the upcoming academic year, typically early April. The Agreement covers the full academic year. Failure to eSign the agreement by the deadline will result in a hard hold being placed on the student. This hold will prevent the student from participating in pre-registration.
