Making A Payment
Paying Your Tuition
Hilbert offers a monthly payment program which divides the semester’s tuition into four monthly payments. The finance charge ranges from $25-$100, depending upon the amount financed on the plan. You and possibly your parent, if necessary, will be required to complete a tuition plan promissory note. Payments received after the ten-day grace period following the due date are assessed a $10 late fee.
Employer Tuition Reimbursement
If you are eligible for tuition reimbursement from your employer, you are allowed to sign an employer payment promissory note to defer payment until two weeks after the grade report is mailed. The finance charge for this note ranges from $25-$100, depending upon the number of credit hours. You are responsible for payment of full charges, including the finance fee.
Tuition and fees are billed in advance for advance-registered students. Payment is due 30 days prior to the start of the semester. Those who register through the drop/add period are billed immediately and payment is due upon receipt of the invoice.
All tuition balances are payable by the published due date on the invoice. Payments by cash, check, MasterCard, VISA, and Discover are acceptable. Payment arrangements for any outstanding balance must be made by the published due date on the invoice. Failure to respond by the payment due date will result in a late fee. Hilbert will not issue grade reports, transcripts or other information until the account is paid in full. Outside collection and legal action will be taken to secure payment due to the college. The cost of these collection services will be the student’s responsibility. If your account is not fully paid or deferred upon by the payment due date you must contact the Office of Student Finance, located on the first floor of Franciscan Hall, for further instructions.
Financial Aid Deferments
Upon completion of properly validated financial aid award documents and loan applications, the Office of Student Finance will defer the amount of the estimated grants and loans against the institutional charges for the semester. It’s the student’s responsibility to respond to any requirements in a timely manner. Failure to do so will result in the loss of the deferment, late charges may be assessed and payment will be expected immediately. If loss of financial aid results in non-payment of the account, the account may be placed with a collection agency. The collection fee (up to 50% of debt) and, if necessary, litigation costs, will be the student’s responsibility.
