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. Questions regarding the availability of this plan and the terms and conditions of the agreement should be directed to the Student Accounts Manager at (909) 621-8259.

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.

Should the new student withdraw before the first 10 days of their first semester at Scripps College, the commitment fee is nonrefundable.

The Commitment fee will be credited the students account in their first semester at Scripps College; on or after September. The Commitment fee is used to cover any unpaid balance.
