Office of Student Accounts




A very cordial welcome—or welcome back—to Sarah Lawrence! Each year in June for the fall, and November for the spring, the office of Student Accounts releases bills for the coming semester. Our goal is to keep you informed about all the options related to your account and help ensure you have a successful semester. The Student Accounts site is a great resource for details about tuition and costs, meal plans, and health insurance. You may also find the answer to your question on our FAQ page. If you have specific questions or you require any assistance concerning your account, do not hesitate to contact us.
