Annual Expenses

Deposits

An applicant should send the Director of Admissions, Elizabethtown College, a non-refundable matriculation deposit of $300 by May 1st. This deposit will be held as a security deposit that will be refunded upon graduation. Please note that any outstanding balances at the time of graduation will be deducted from the security deposit.

Tuition Payment Policy

Tuition Payment Policy All charges are due on or before the due date for each semester. Checks should be made payable to Elizabethtown College.

Students are sent bills in July and December for one-half of the annual comprehensive fee. All confirmed financial aid is listed on the bill. You should deduct applicable aid from the balance due for any aid not listed on your bill, but referenced on your latest financial aid award letter (excluding FWS). Please note: a student must have full-time status to qualify for most types of financial aid.

All amounts not received by the due date are subject to a one time late payment fee of $50 in addition to monthly interest at a rate of 1.5% per month, or 18% per year. Loan funds or any other sources of financial aid not received by the due date are subject to late charges and interest. Recommendation: All loans should be applied for prior to July 1 to help ensure timely receipt.

Elizabethtown College does not accept direct monthly installments or deferred payments for tuition. However, certain third party tuition plans are accepted.

A student who is absent from College because of sickness or any other reason and who retains a place in class, pays in full during the absence.
