Student Accounts/Billing Information

Billing Information

Bills are generated the 11th of every month. The first bill will be generated July 11th for the fall semester, and December 11 for the spring semester. Students are responsible for setting up their parents and any other parties who require access to the bill. The bill is located on the CASHNet site available through the student portal. Since the portal is the student’s domain, your student will be the one to indicate the person or persons who are responsible for paying the bill by setting them up with a parent pin. By entering this information, the student gives the person permission to go online and retrieve the bill after they set up the responsible billing party’s email address in the system. Once the bills are generated, the College will send an email message that the bill is ready to be viewed by them and their student.

Method of Payment

Personal checks, cashier checks, money orders, and wire transfers are all acceptable forms of payment. To wire funds to the College, please contact the Student Account Office at (909) 621-8259. Please note that we do not accept credit or debit card payments. Please mail payments to: Scripps College, Dept. 8504, Los Angeles, CA 90084-8504. Payments can also be made online through the CASHNet system using the banking information tied to your checking or savings account.

Families who receive payments from outside organizations, including tuition remission payments from other institutions or payments from 529 plans, will need to send a copy of the student’s billing statement to those organizations and request they send the payment in.

Due Dates and Late Fees

Payments are due on or before the first day of the month. A late fee of 1% of the past due amount is charged each month the account remains delinquent.

Payment Options 

Scripps College offers a payment option for families who wish to pay in installments. With this plan, the comprehensive fees, minus financial aid, are paid in eight equal installments per year. Fall semester payments are due August 1st through November 1st, and for the spring semester January 1st through April 1st. Payment Option Forms for this plan must be received by the Billing Office by July 1st. A non-refundable fee of $50.00 per semester will be charged to your student account for utilizing this installment option.

Tuition Refund Insurance

GradGuard Tuition Refund Insurance can help refund your tuition, fees, and room/board charges, up to the policy limits, if you are unable to complete the semester due to a covered medical reason such as an illness, accident, or mental health issue*. This insurance program complements and enhances our school’s published refund policy and we believe families will benefit from this added protection.

Visit GradGuard for additional information.

Prepayment Plan

Students and families who wish to prepay the total four-year tuition fee for full time study at Scripps College, may elect to enter into a Prepayment Plan Agreement. For questions regarding the terms and conditions of the agreement please contact our office at (909) 621-8259 or email us

Delinquent Accounts

An account is considered delinquent when the amount billed is not received on the due date. Delinquent accounts are subject to a late fee of 1% of the past due amount. A financial hold will be put on the account, which prohibits transcripts and diplomas from being released. Once the account is brought current, transcripts and diplomas may again be given. If it is deemed necessary for an account to be assigned to a collection agency, the individual paying the bill will also be responsible for paying all collection costs incurred by the college.

Any charges for damages to College property or unpaid student account balances will be withheld from the commitment fee.
