Tuition, room, board, and fees are payable in two payments; the first one on or before August 5 and the second payment on or before January 5. For a monthly installment plan, please see the following sections. For each month, or part of a month that payments are delinquent, a fee of 1% will be charged for each month or fraction of a month throughout the duration of such delinquency.

Installment Payment Plan

Hartwick College has partnered with Educational Computer Systems Inc. in our continued commitment to assist families in affording an education. ECSI offers an interest-free Tuition Payment Plan with an enrollment fee of $65. Instead of making two lump-sum payments, ECSI allows you to pay all or part of your educational expenses in ten monthly installments. By enrolling in this plan, the tuition account will be credited each semester with one-half of the contracted amount. Program enrollment starts on June 1. You may contact ECSI by telephone at 866-927-1438 or by visiting their website at http://www.ecsi.net/hartwick.

Work-Study Earnings

Students employed on campus through the federal work-study program will be paid by check every two weeks for hours worked, and may request to have all or part of their earnings applied directly to the tuition account. To request the deduction, the student must complete a Payroll Deduction Authorization form with the Office of Student Accounts on a yearly basis. Parents of students receiving work-study as part of their financial aid award package should not deduct their student’s work-study award amount from the tuition account. Paychecks are delivered to the student campus boxes on payday. Automatic deposit to a checking or savings account is available; please contact Student Payroll for an application. The Cashier’s window, located in Bresee Hall, is available to cash student work-study payroll checks on pay dates only.


Check Cashing and Advances

Students may cash personal checks for up to $40 per day at the cashier’s window in Bresee Hall, Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., when classes are in session. Hartwick ID is required. Parents’ checks made payable to the student for $75 or less also may be cashed. An ATM provided by Community Bank, N.A. is located on the third floor of Dewar Hall.

If an emergency arises and a student needs to return home immediately, the Office of Student Accounts will advance the student the cash amount required. Should this need arise, parents must contact the Director and request the amount needed. Once approved, the advance amount will be added to the student’s tuition account.


Overpayments

If total payments and/or financial aid result in an overpayment, a refund must be requested. The student will be the recipient of the refund unless a parent loan generates the credit balance. Credit balances from parent loans are refunded to the parent borrower. Financial aid must be posted and verified before any refund can occur. Refund requests are processed within five to seven days. Any authorization obtained for disbursing financial aid funds continues to be valid in subsequent years unless rescinded in writing.


Tuition Insurance

Starting with the 2017-2018 school year, Hartwick College will be enrolling all full time students into the Tuition Insurance Plan, through an outside servicer, A.G. Dewar Inc., to provide coverage if a student must leave the College mid-semester due to a serious illness or accident. There will be an option to opt out of the coverage.  However, we encourage you to review the information you receive from A.G. Dewar Inc., as the cost of the plan is $252 a year, billed $126 each semester.  This applies after the refund policy that is outlined in the next section.  General and medical leaves are covered at 75% of tuition, fees and room.
