Financial Aid for Wellesley College Matriculated Students Only

Student Financial Services (SFS) will evaluate financial aid eligibility for Wellesley College students registered for Summer Term and/or the Contemporary Women’s Leadership Program. No formal application is required, but students are expected to comply with any individual requests made by SFS.

For Summer Term, SFS will review financial aid eligibility as students register for courses and will release notices of aid eligibility (or revised eligibility) on a weekly basis beginning the week of March 5, 2018. Final notices will be released the week after registration ends for each term.

For the Contemporary Women’s Leadership Program, SFS will review financial aid eligibility and release notices of aid eligibility by Monday, May 21, 2018.

Unfortunately, Wellesley is unable to offer financial aid to visiting students attending Summer Term, the Pre-College Immersive Program, the Pre-College Exploratory Workshops, or the Contemporary Women’s Leadership Program.

Billing and Payment

Wellesley College records billing and payment activity on the student account, which is accessible through the Wellesley Student Account Center (SAC). The SAC is an online website that allows you to retrieve account statements (EBills); view up-to-the-minute account activity; and make and confirm payments. Please visit the Student Financial Services (SFS) website to learn more about the SAC and payment options.

SFS will begin assessing charges for Summer Term I (including 6-week courses) on the April EBill.  Summer Term II, the Pre-College Immersive Program, the Pre-College Exploratory Workshops, and the Contemporary Women’s Leadership Program charges will be assessed on the May EBill. EBills are provided within the first week of the month. Students who register after a monthly statement has been prepared can view their charges in their SAC via MyWellesley. An EBill will be prepared for them during the following month and will include any charge or payment assessed prior to preparation.

Payment deadlines are listed above. If a student registers after a deadline, payment is due upon registration. Unpaid accounts are subject to late fees, financial holds, and/or cancellation of course registration.
