Student Financial Services
Colby College

Waterville, ME  04901

Statements will be mailed along with a return envelope addressed to Colby's lockbox (currently TD Bank) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Please do not include any correspondence when mailing payment to the Connecticut address.

Due to the high cost of processing credit card payments, the College does not accept credit cards for payment on a student account. You may however make an electronic payment from a US savings or checking account.
