Billing information

The Business Office provides billing information three times per year, prior to each trimester, on the student’s online ledger. The due dates are approximately mid-August, early December, and mid-March. Students are notified by email when their online billing ledgers have been updated with the next term’s charges. If they have financial aid they will also see the appropriate credits. The registrar’s office will provide new students with information about how to access their student portals which include the online ledger. 

Parents can submit their email address(es) to the business office to be included in the parent email group. This group will receive general email notifications regarding when bills are available for viewing as well as approaching due dates.

Payment plan

A payment plan option is available through Nelnet for interest-free monthly payments over the course of nine months for a low, flat fee.

Please contact us if you are interested in exploring or setting up such a plan.

Billing errors

Students understand that administrative, clerical or technical billing errors do not absolve them of their financial responsibility to pay the correct amount of tuition, fees and other associated financial obligations assessed as a result of their registration at College of the Atlantic.
