Payment Policies

Charges for tuition, fees, campus housing and any prior balance must be paid in full each semester before a student may attend class. A student's enrollment is complete and official after registration has occurred and all balances due have been settled with Student Financial Services.

Payment Deadlines

On-Campus Graduate and Undergraduate Programs:

Summer: May 5th
Fall: August 15th
Spring: December 15th

Online Programs (Nursing@Simmons, SW@Simmons, MPH@Simmons, BehaviorAnalysis@Simmons and UG CompleteDegree@Simmons)

All Terms: Payment is due 7 days prior to the start of each term.

Late Fees & Penalties

Payments received at the University after the due date on the billing statement are subject to late payment fees. A $100 late fee will be assessed if the balance is not paid in full by the tuition payment deadline. Another $100 late fee will be assessed if the balance has not been paid in full by the first day of classes for that semester.

Student accounts must be paid in full before a student may attend class. Students who do not settle their accounts prior to the first day of classes may have their schedules canceled and will have to select courses on a space-available basis.

Any account that is severely delinquent may be referred to a collection agency or lawyer for collection. Any expenses incurred by the University in doing so will be added to the due balance.

Simmons University reserves the right to suspend any or all of its privileges and services to students who have not met their financial obligations to the University. Such services include: current and future term registrations, the release of academic transcripts, diplomas, references, and placement materials, as well as access to various campus offices and facilities (including parking and on campus housing). Please note that Simmons has no deferred-payment plans. All University charges are payable by the applicable due dates or the late payment fees will be applied.
