Bills and Payment

While at Vassar, your bill, scholarship, loans, and other financial matters are all handled through your student account. From your student account, you can see an itemized list of the fees charged and paid to the college, as well as funds disbursed. The student account will carry either a positive balance, meaning the amount that must be paid to the college, or a negative balance, meaning your account is over paid. For accounts with a negative balance you can request a refund and have the funds transferred to your personal bank account.

All direct charges (tuition, mandatory fees, room, board) are billed per semester, and financial assistance is disbursed per semester. Tuition bills are sent out in mid July for the fall semester and mid December for the spring term. You will receive an email notification when your bill is available.

If you are on the monthly payment plan or if you incur fees during the semester, then you will be billed monthly. for these new charges. If a parent, guardian, or other third party is responsible for paying the bill, then you can set them up in Nelnet as authorized payers, which will enable them to receive email notifications and to make payments electronically to your account.
