Due Dates and Late Fees

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

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.

Tuition Refund Insurance

Scripps College offers Tuition Refund Insurance through GradGuard. Tuition Refund Insurance helps you and your family protect your investment in education by covering up to 100% of tuition and fees lost due to a medical withdrawal or a withdrawal due to a mental health condition.

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, prohibiting transcripts and diplomas to be 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, it becomes the responsibility of the person responsible for payment of the bill to pay for all collection cost.

Graduating Seniors

All graduating seniors must have their bill paid in full by April 1 the year of their graduation in order to be financially cleared for graduation. Seniors, who are not financially cleared for graduation, will not receive their diplomas or transcripts on the day of graduation.

Graduation Fee

A $70 fee is charged to all degree applicants. The fee is non-refundable. This fee covers the cost of degree audits and evaluations; the diploma, diploma cover, and shipping supplies and expenses and the commencement ceremony.

Commitment Deposit

The $500.00 commitment deposit is to hold the student’s place at Scripps College, and is held until their last semester. The Commitment fee is used to cover any charges or fees not paid at the time of graduation or withdrawal from the College. Any charges for damages to College property or unpaid student account balances will be withheld from the commitment fee. If the student notifies the College of their intention to withdraw from the following fall semester by March 31 or by November 15 for the following spring semester, then the remaining commitment fee will be credited to the student account. If the student withdraws after these deadlines, the fee will be forfeited.

Return Checks

Return checks are subject to a $30.00 return check charge. If the college receives more than two return checks in one academic year, the account will be put on hold, and checks will no longer be accepted as a form of payment.
