Billing and Payments
Payment Due Dates
Fall semester: Payments due by August 1.
Spring semester: Payments due by December 1.
Payments received after the above dates will be subject to a $250 late fee.
There will be a $50 fee for any returned checks, also including e-checks that do not electronically match and stop payments.
Forms of Payment Accepted
The college accepts payments via American Express, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover Card through the on-line web link. There is a 2.75% transaction fee for all payments made by Credit Cards. E-Check payments can be made at no charge.
Note: Failure to meet financial obligations in a reasonable manner can result in the cancellation of a student's enrollment. Students with balances on their financial accounts will NOT be awarded a diploma or issued transcripts.
The Business Office will send out e-mail notifications to all students at their flagler.edu e-mail address, prior to the August and December deadlines. The invoice may not reflect credit for all financial aid grants or student loans. If you do not see an award that you feel you are eligible for, please contact the Financial Aid Office at FinancialAid@flagler.edu, or check your message tab in the financial aid portion of the student portal.
Parents and students should be aware that grants from the federal or state government and loans from banking institutions usually do not arrive at the College by the due date. In fact, many do not materialize until late in the semester. In most cases, the College is willing to wait for the grant or loan to satisfy amounts owed, as long as we have a letter of guarantee on file in the Financial Aid Office.
All new students and returning boarding students with a signed housing contract, are required to submit an advance deposit as a confirmation of his/her intention to attend Flagler College in the fall and spring. These deposits are non-refundable and are applied to the student’s housing charges to the spring semester in the academic year.
For new students, freshmen or transfers, advance deposits for fall are due by May 1st and December 1st for the spring semester. For returning students, the advance deposits are due on or before March 15. The College has limited housing for returning students and will only give out housing contracts based on available space. Housing for returning students is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, with a signed and approved housing contract on file with the Office of Student Services. Advance deposits for non-boarding students will be credited towards your spring statement.
Students not returning for spring semester or withdrawing before the semester ends will forfeit the advanced payment.
Financial Aid Refunds
If the student is expecting a refund from grants and/or loans in excess of the amount owed, such refunds can be processed only after the funds actually arrive and the debt to the College is fully satisfied. Students must wait until after the Drop/Add period for a refund. This can pose some problems for the student who may be planning to use such excess funds for books or living expenses early in the semester. For this reason, students should have available funds to purchase books and supplies.
