Late Payment Policy
Semester charges are billed in July and in December. Semester charges are due in August and January, respectively. If payment is not received by the due date, a 1% per month or 12% per annum late fee will be assessed.
The College must receive the FULL AMOUNT DUE on or before the due date indicated on the bill. If full payment is not received by the due date, a late payment fee may be assessed, and future registration and continuing enrollment may not be permitted.
Student Health Insurance
Hamilton College requires that all students have some form of health insurance coverage. Students who enroll at Hamilton will be billed a proposed annual premium for 2020/2021 of $1,998 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 insurance plan provides coverage for tuition, room and board charges.
In order to reduce the cost of the annual premium, students are automatically enrolled in the plan and billed for half of the annual premium at the start of each academic year. Students may opt out of the insurance by completing an online waiver here. The annual premium for 2020-2021 is $450.
Students who plan to work on campus will need to complete the required forms.
