Dates & Deadlines

Here is a timeline of items related to your financial responsibilities. Items with an actual date have an official deadline. Those with the month are a general time frame of when you should be completing the item.

Tuition Payment Plan & Other Payment Methods

Take advantage of our Tuition Payment Plan! Payments can also be made to Emerson College via mail, in person, online, or wire transfer.


Any student with an actual credit balance/overpayment on his or her student account is eligible to request a refund. Here you will find instructions on how to request a refund, how to set up a direct deposit, and how to appeal financial cost of attendance.

Health Insurance Waivers

All students enrolled at least 75 percent of full time, who are not enrolled solely in short term courses or an online program, are required by law to be covered by health insurance. Therefore, students required to have insurance are automatically enrolled in and billed for the Emerson Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).

Past Due Accounts

When students leave Emerson College with an open balance, their account becomes delinquent. Former students who have open balances are not eligible to re-enroll or receive academic transcripts until their balances, including all finance charges and collection fees, are paid in full.
