Student Accounts

At Hamilton, we provide customer service and counseling to students and parents to assist families in meeting their financial obligations to the College.

Registration Fee Information

A registration fee of $200 or $500, deductible from the fall tuition bill, is required of all students who intend to return to Hamilton for the coming academic year. This fee is billed to the student's account in March and is due on April 1. Students may not preregister or participate in the housing lottery until the deposit is paid. It is nonrefundable after May 1.

Electronic Billing & Payments

First-year students will receive a paper bill by U.S. mail. All other students are billed electronically. Students must sign up for the service first and then grant access to parents and other payers.

Tuition Payment Information

The Business Office provides a monthly billing statement to each student. Fall tuition expenses are billed in July and spring tuition is billed in December. Several payment options are available. Full payment of your student bill is due by the date indicated on your statement. You are responsible for paying any amounts not covered by financial aid or outside sources.

Student Health Insurance

Hamilton College requires that all students have some form of health insurance coverage. Students who enroll at Hamilton will be billed an annual premium of $1,784 for the Hamilton College Student Health Insurance Plan unless they submit an online waiver and provide proof of alternate coverage. This waiver must be completed annually. Please complete the waiver by July 1 to avoid unnecessary charges.

Tuition Insurance Plan

The Tuition Insurance Plan minimizes the financial loss if an illness or accident requires your son or daughter to withdraw from college before the semester is completed. This elective insurance plan provides coverage for tuition, room and board charges.

Please return the application form and premium payment before August 24, 2017. Applications cannot be accepted after classes begin. For questions, please call 617-774-1555.


Hamilton College issues the 1098-T form to students for tax reporting purposes. This form was mailed to the student’s primary mailing address in January. It is NOT available online. Please note: if your student graduated in Spring 2017, he/she will not receive a 1098-T form. Hamilton reports tuition according to the year when it is billed, not paid. (i.e. Spring term 2017 was billed in Nov. 2016).
