Billing Services Policy
Tuition and fees are due at the time of billing, unless alternative arrangements have been approved by the Methodist College Bursar. All charges and credits for each semester are consolidated into one account for each student.
- Fall tuition is due on or before the first day of class.
- Spring tuition is due on or before the first day of class.
- Summer tuition is due on or before the first day of class.
If any of these dates occur on a holiday, the payment will be due on the following business day.
All correspondence regarding billing will be handled electronically. It is the responsibility of the students to regularly check their email and CAMS portal to ensure their balances are being paid.
Spring 2019 Payment Plan Policy
Below are the general expectations for payment of your Spring 2019 Tuition & Fees:
Billing fees will be assessed to students based on account status. To avoid ALL Billing Fees (Deferment or Late Fees), tuition must be covered IN FULL by the first day of classes which is January 14, 2019.
Your tuition and fee charges can be covered by any combination of:
- Personal payment
- Financial Aid (Loans/Grants)
- Workforce Development Career Voucher (such as Career Link, VA Benefits, etc.)
.which is posted to or "Pending" on your CAMS account by the first day of classes.
Any accounts NOT paid in full by January 14, 2019 (meaning, those accounts with an "Overall Balance" of greater than $1 after the first day of classes) will be automatically assessed a $30 deferment fee and will be assumed to be participating in the following payment plan:
- 33% of the "Overall Balance *" must be paid by Monday, January 14, 2019
- 33% of the "Overall Balance *" must be paid by Friday, February 15, 2019
- The remainder of must be paid by Friday, March 15, 2019.
(* The "Overall Balance" is your total charges LESS any pending aid)
Any accounts with an open balance after March 15, 2019 will be charged a $50 late fee and a Billing Hold will be placed on the account.
ADDITIONALLY, PLEASE NOTE: Any student with an unpaid Spring 2019 balance will not be able to register for Summer or Fall 2019 classes when registration opens.
It is your responsibility to pay your bill. Please keep in contact with the Bursar's Office if you begin to experience unexpected financial difficulties or extenuating circumstances that would prevent you from paying in a timely manner. Please contact Financial Aid if a Financial Aid award you are expecting to receive has not been added to your account.

NOTE: If you are participating in any payment plan, there is a flat $30 payment plan deferment fee that will be applied per semester to any and all accounts not paid by the tuition due date. This means that if you do not elect a payment plan and your tuition is not paid on or before the tuition due date, you will automatically be placed in the payment plan and charged the payment plan deferment fee. Please also be aware that if any of these payments are not made on or before the specified payment dates, then the student will be charged a $50 late fee per payment.
Students who fail to pay when due will not be able to register for the next semester until the outstanding balance is paid in full.
