As a student, your financial responsibilities to Wellesley College include meeting payment deadlines and following other policies, fulfilling loan or grant requirements, and addressing outstanding balances--even if someone else is making the payments for you.
It is important to understand that information and communications will be geared toward and directed to you rather than a parent or guardian. If a parent or other individual handles your educational finances, take the first step in your involvement by discussing the information with them.
The Student Financial Services website is a wonderful resource for understanding billing, financing and paying for your time at Wellesley. The site includes a number of helpful FAQs, forms and helpful links, payment deadlines, as well as information about Wellesley's payment policy and options.
