Student Accounts Office
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 charge.
There will be a $50 charge for any returned checks, to include e-checks that do not electronically match and stop payments.
The college accepts payments via American Express, Mastercard, Visa, Diner Card and Discover Card through the on-line web link. There is a 2.75% convenience fee for all payments made by Credit Cards. E-Check payments can be made at no charge to the student or parent/guardian. Please verify all information before pressing the submit button.
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 governments 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. These deposits are non-refundable and are applied to the student’s tuition and fees for the fall semester.
For new students, freshmen or transfers, advance deposits are due within three weeks following the date of acceptance. 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. Students not returning for spring semester or withdrawing before the semester ends will forfeit the advanced payment.
If the student is expecting a cash refund from grants and/or loans in excess of the amount owed, such refunds can be made 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 bring sufficient funds to purchase books and supplies.
The College recommends the Federal Parent PLUS Loan if additional aid is needed. We do offer a payment plan option through Higher One. Log into MyFlagler and click on the 'Business Services' tab. There is a nominal enrollment fee and no interest is accrued while you are enrolled in the plan. Your balance must be greater than $1,000.00 in order to be eligible for the plan.
Students, parents or any other responsible billing party listed on the students account, can enroll online and agree to contract requirements with an electronic signature. The monthly bills, reminders, and receipts will be set up so that they are automatically emailed and/or messaged to your cell phone. You have the option to establish automatic payments.
Your financial information and personal privacy is secure by state-of-the-art, need-based data encryption, security certification, and access control. Please visit MyFlagler, Business Services tab for further details.
Students who enroll at Flagler in the fall are encouraged to attend the College for the entire academic year. Although the College operates on a semester calendar for academic purposes, financial commitments for instruction, plant operations, and other fixed costs are yearly arrangements. These yearly costs are budgeted on the basis of fall semester enrollments. Therefore, when a student withdraws from Flagler prior to the end of the academic year, a financial loss is realized by the College. To offset some of this loss, the advance deposit is credited to the fall semester and is forfeited in the case of students who do not attend all of the fall semester.
