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 review and e-sign the Financial Agreement upon logging into their billing portal via the Student Account Center

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

The agreement covers the student’s full career at Springfield College. Failure to e-sign the agreement by the deadline will result in a "hard hold," which will prevent the student from participating in pre-registration and will not be lifted until the agreement is e-signed.

Tuition Insurance

Springfield College has partnered with GradGuard to provide our families with tuition insurance from Allianz Global Assistance, featuring special plans and rates not available to the general public.

This coverage expands the scope of our refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, fees, and room and board for covered withdrawals at any time during the semester.

For more information, or to opt-in for this tuition insurance, visit or call (877) 794-6603. For claims, please call (888) 427-5045. Watch this video to learn more about tuition insurance from GradGuard. 

The deadline to apply for this tuition insurance is the day before the first day of classes each semester.

Students will not see a charge on their Springfield College student electronic billing statement. Students and families who opt-in for this tuition insurance will work directly with GradGuard regarding payment.

Veteran Students

Thank you for your service! At Springfield College, we understand the importance of providing a caring and supportive environment for veterans, reservists, and their families.

For Post-9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33) students and Veterans Affairs (VA) Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (Chapter 31) [now called Veteran Readiness and Employment] students, our tuition policy complies with 38 USC 3679(e), which means Post-9/11 and Veteran Readiness and Employment students will not be charged, or otherwise penalized, due to a delay in VA tuition and fee payments. For eligibility consideration, a Post-9/11 GI Bill student must submit a VA Certificate of Eligibility (COE) and a Veteran Readiness and Employment student must provide a VAF 28-1905 form. Please see 38 USC 3679(e) for complete details.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by the VA is available at the official U.S. government website at

Bill Due Dates

Fall: August 1; Spring and Intersession: December 31; Summer: May 1

Payment Options for Tuition and Fees

Pay the semester electronic billing statement by the due date to avoid late fees and/or your account being placed on hold. If your account has a past due balance, it will be assessed a $75 late fee each month until the balance is cleared. You can access your statement via the Student Account Center

Students and/or families can pay their bill by one or a combination of the following options: 

  • Pay Online by Check Routing Number: Pay by check routing number online via the Student Account Center. Please be sure to confirm the routing and account number you enter is correct. If you pay by using your check routing number, you will not be assessed a fee. 
  • Pay Online by Major Credit Card: Pay by credit or debit card from any major company: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express online via the Student Account Center. Payments made with a major credit card will be assessed a fee of 2.95% of the total with a minimum of $3, whichever is greater. We do not accept credit cards in the office or by phone.  
  • Pay by Cash in Person: For everyone's safety, we are encouraging students and families to utilize online services to reduce the number of people that come to the Cashier's Office. The Cashier's Office will be open from 9 AM to 2 PM, Monday through Friday. If you have questions or want to contact the Student Accounts Office, please schedule either a callback or Zoom with the office
  • Pay by Mail via Personal Check, Bank Check, or Money Order: Please note: Checks sent by mail may take up to two weeks to receive and be posted to the student’s account. Please include the student’s name and ID number on the memo line to ensure the payment is posted to the correct account. Mail to: Springfield College, Attn: Student Accounts Office, 263 Alden St., Springfield, MA 01109
  • International students can pay through Flywire, an easy and secure method for sending international payments. Learn more about payment options.

Payment Plans

Students or authorized users can enroll in our semester payment plan, which is interest-free.

To enroll in a payment plan, log onto the Student Account Center during the payment plan enrollment period, click the “Payment Plan" tab from the dashboard, select the current semester in the "Manage Plans" section, and follow the prompts.

Single Semester Payment Plan ($100 minimum plan)

  • Available to all matriculated students
  • Up to four monthly installments, net of estimated financial aid, per semester beginning.
  • Fall Plan -  August 1 through November 1
  • Spring Plan - January 1 through April 1
  • Enrollment fee of $50 per semester (enrollment fee is nonrefundable)
  • Payment plans automatically recalculate if there are charges and/or aid changes
  • Please note, if you miss one of your monthly payments, your account will appear on our past due report. You will be placed on hold and/or be assessed a $75 late fee. 

Internal Payment Plan

Non-enrolled students who need to pay a prior balance can be set up on an internal payment plan. Please contact our collections specialist at (413) 748-3642 for more information. Please note there is a $50 enrollment fee for this plan. 

Financial Aid / Alternative Loans

  • Approved and accepted financial aid may be used as credit toward your bill. Any alternative loan (not a federal subsidized or unsubsidized loan) must be approved and accepted by Springfield College in order to be used as credit. Please apply early for this type of loan as the processing time varies. In addition to your financial aid, you may use outside resources, such as private scholarships, Massachusetts Rehabilitation, Massachusetts Vocational Rehabilitation, and Massachusetts Commission of the Blind, by submitting a copy of the scholarship award letter or the appropriate purchase order.
  • If financial aid is not reflected on the electronic billing statement the full amount is due for the semester, and payment will be required until financial aid is awarded and accepted by the student. Students should refer their Financial Aid portal to view Financial Aid Documents and Requirements.
  • Students may choose an Alternative Loan or Payment Plan in this case if they are unable to pay in full out of pocket.

Important Notice to Students and Parents

The Student Accounts Office at Springfield College will never ask for personal and confidential information, including Social Security Number, credit card, or bank account numbers via email or text. Please do not respond to any email or text request for this information you may receive, as it is a phishing scam.

Further, do not send us sensitive information via email unless the Social Security Number and/or bank account numbers have been redacted on all pages. 

If you are in doubt of the validity of any email or text you receive which purports to be from Springfield College, contact the Student Accounts Office staff at (413) 748-3183.

Student and Family Payment Information

You can view your student financial portal at any time in the Student Account Center. The Student Account Center provides access to all your financial information in one convenient place.

All electronic notifications from the Student Accounts  Office in regards to your student account will be sent to your Springfield College email address. Additional email addresses for notification may be added by adding an authorized user to the Student Account Center. 

The Student Account Center includes the following information:

  • Student electronic billing statement 
  • Online student bill payment 
  • Payment Plan
  • Pending (Estimated) Financial Aid
  • Student Holds

Granting Access to Family Members or Guests

Authorization for family members and/or guests to access financial information must be granted directly from the student due to the protection of student rights under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

The Student Account Center gives students the ability to provide authorized users access to the same financial information. When authorized by a student, the Parent Portal gives parents/guests the ability to view their student’s electronic billing statement, set-up payment plans, make payments online, check on pending (estimated) financial aid status, and holds.
