Payment Options

Colby College families may choose to participate in the tuition payment plan administered by Higher One. Payment plans begin prior to the beginning of the academic year with some plans starting as early as May 1st.  The deadline for enrolling in the fall-only or full-year plan is August 25th, and the deadline for the spring-only plan is December 15th. Please keep in mind that it is best to enroll as early as possible to avoid having to make up prior payments which may have been missed. For students who will be enrolled at Colby for the full year, payment plans begin May 1st, June 1st, or July 1st. All three plans end February 1st. One half of the annual contract amount will be credited to Colby's Student Account Statement each semester and may not reflect what has actually been paid to the payment plan. Students who will be attending Colby College for only the fall or spring semester can enroll in the appropriate semester plan but not in the 10-month, 9-month, or 8-month plan. The spring-only plan will be available on-line by mid-September with a beginning date of October 1st. Please note:  Do not enroll in the payment plan for a period in which you are studying on a program NOT BILLED by Colby College.  This includes non-Colby programs approved by the Office of Off-Campus Study.
