Fee Considerations for 2023-24

Hamilton recognizes that the coronavirus pandemic continues to create risks and uncertainties that may affect the future structure of its traditional on-campus learning and residential experience, but the tuition and fees charged by the College are based on the quality and expertise of the faculty and is not dependent on the format of our educational programs. If Hamilton is forced to alter the structure of its on-campus educational programs, or transitions to a remote learning model to mitigate the possible effects of the coronavirus pandemic or because of restrictions imposed by federal, state, or local authorities, tuition charges will remain as published for 2022-23 and will not be refunded or reduced.

Refund Policy

All refunds to a student withdrawing from the College are based on the date on which the student, parent, or guardian notified the Dean of Students of withdrawal. The College policy on the refund of payments to students who withdraw voluntarily or due to illness, or who are dismissed during any semester, is stated below. Tuition insurance may apply in some circumstances.

Students who receive financial aid from the College and withdraw during a semester will have their aid re-evaluated, and possibly adjusted, based on the type of aid received, government regulations, and the period of attendance.

Prior to the first day of classes, 100 percent of tuition, room, board and the student activities fees will be refunded, less any nonrecoverable costs incurred by the College.

Room charges will not be refunded if a student withdraws after the start of classes.
