Students' financial accounts are required to be current and up to date at all times. All outstanding past due balances must be paid by the first week of classes each semester. If a student is receiving federal or college loans, all promissory loan notes must be signed by the required date shown on the Academic Calendar each semester.
Families of Pomona College students may choose between two different billing schedules—a monthly payment plan or a basic plan with a single payment per semester. Please read the following information carefully as you decide which plan best suits your needs and begin making your financial arrangements.
The Monthly Payment Plan
The Monthly Payment Plan allows families to spread the cost of tuition, housing and food, and student-body fees over the academic year. There are four billing installments per semester, for a total of eight payments for the academic year. Payments are due at the beginning of each billing month. Fall semester payments begin August 1, and end November 1. Spring semester payments begin January 2, and end April 1. Miscellaneous charges such as parking citations and health center fees are due and payable in the month billed. These charges are not spread over your remaining monthly payments.
The Full Payment Plan
If you do not elect to use the Monthly Payment Plan, you will be billed one payment per semester. You will receive your fall semester statement in mid-July for payment due August 1, and your spring semester statement in mid-December for payment due January 2. You will also receive a statement any month in which miscellaneous charges are billed. These charges are due and payable in the month billed.

Returned Payments & Delinquent Accounts
Payments returned by the bank for non-sufficient funds, revoked authorization, or an invalid routing/account number are subject to a returned payment fee of $25 for the first incident and $35 for second incident. If your payment is not received by the due date, a Business Hold will be placed on the account and a late payment charge will be assessed at the rate of $25 per month until the past due account is paid in full. Students who have outstanding charges at the end of a semester will be placed on a business hold and will not be allowed to register for the next semester. Graduating seniors who have outstanding charges will have diploma withheld until all bills have been paid.
Housing and Food Costs
Housing and food payments cover rent and the cost of meals during and just prior to the opening of classes. Students may change meal plans until the 10th day of classes through the Office of Campus Life. The College will cover the housing and food costs for new students if they are asked to arrive prior to that date, and for any returning students who are needed to assist with the opening activities.
The housing agreement does not include the use of rooms during summer or during winter vacations; the College reserves the right to assign other persons to rooms during these periods. Students who wish to stay on campus during these periods must request special arrangements with the Office of Campus Life. If such a request is approved, there will be a nominal charge for the privilege. The College dining halls are normally closed during these periods.

Paying Via E-Check and Viewing Your Balance Online
Students may view and pay online at the Pomona College Portal website. Once the student authorizes an additional party, they will receive an email with a parent PIN and password, along with a CASHNet link specific for parents to log in. Credit cards are not accepted. For any questions on this process, please email email@example.com.
You will not see a credit on your statement for payment of the first-year deposit. Deposits are held in a separate account and will be refunded directly to the student upon graduation (or withdrawal) from the College after settlement of the final bill.
