Payment Options

There are various methods for paying your educational expenses at Wellesley. 

Outside Resources

If you receive a scholarship or other outside award not previously considered in the determination of your financial aid award, you must, according to federal regulations, notify Student Financial Services. 

Participants in prepaid tuition programs must provide sponsorship/billing information to Student Financial Services prior to the payment deadline.

Please note that these awards will not be reflected on your student account or billing statement until the College has received the funds.

Unless specifically stated in the sponsorship letter, all outside scholarships will be evenly applied to the fall and spring semesters.

Monthly Payment Plan

Please contact Tuition Management Systems for academic year contracts.

If you plan to use your savings and/or current income to cover all or part of your educational expenses, the Monthly Payment Option offered through Tuition Management Systems helps by providing more manageable cash flow and greater budget flexibility. Instead of lump-sum payments, the TMS Plan allows you to pay all or part of your education expenses in manageable monthly installments. You may use the TMS plan to pay your balance after financial aid or in combination with other loans. The payment plan is available for a small enrollment fee and includes personal account service, automated account information 24 hours a day, and access to your account through their web site.

Although Student Financial Services can provide assistance, you are responsible for determining the contract amount. TMS is not responsible for this decision and will make changes only upon your request.

The toll free number is 800.722.4867 (if calling from outside of the United States, please use 401-849-1550) or you may visit their web site at www.afford.com.

Tuition Stabilization Plan

This program provides a written contract guaranteeing that the cost of tuition will remain the same for each of four consecutive years at Wellesley College. By June 30 preceding the Fall semester of the entering year, the student pays an amount equal to four times the first year's tuition cost. Provisions are made for leaves of absence (up to two semesters), refunds, and withdrawals. This program stabilizes only the cost of tuition at Wellesley College; all other charges such as room and board will be billed at the rate for the applicable year, as will tuition for any exchange program or other college at which the student enrolls.  Please contact Student Financial Services for enrollment information.
