Office of Student Accounts




A very cordial welcome—or welcome back—to Sarah Lawrence! Each year in June, the Student Accounts office mails the bills for the coming semester, and it is our goal to make sure you have everything you need to ensure a successful enrollment. Here you'll find everything you need, but if you require any assistance, do not hesitate to contact us.

Payment Types

Online Payments

Electronic bills, payments, and monthly payment plans are available via Nelnet. Students can access their accounts with Nelnet through their MySLC portal. Students may then also grant authorized users their own access to make payments and view account activity.

International Payments

International students may now pay their Sarah Lawrence tuition by using Flywire.

Wire Transfers

Payments may be made via wire transfer. Please contact the Office of Student Accounts for wire transfer instructions.

If you make payment by wiring funds, please mail or fax us a copy of the receipt indicating the date and amount of the wire transfer. The Student Accounts fax number is 914.395.2669.

The name and ID number of the student must be included on all wires.

Payment Plans & Schedules

Billing Schedule

Charges for tuition, fees, room, and board are assessed and billed on a semester basis. Fall charges will be billed in June. Spring charges will be billed in December. Any balances unpaid by their due date will be assessed a late payment fee of 1% or $10, whichever is greater. Monthly statements will be issued after the initial bill showing any subsequent charges or payments.

Monthly Semester Payment Plan

Students and families have the option of enrolling in monthly payment plans through the College's electronic billing provider, Nelnet. Plans will be available on a semester-by-semester basis. Annual plans will no longer be available. Payments will be processed via ACH automatically on the 5th of each month in the payment plan. An enrollment fee of $50 and a down payment for the first month of the plan will be required at the time of enrollment. Each student may only have one active plan per semester.
