Student Billing

Tuition, fees, and on-campus room and board are billed by semester. Fall semester bills are due August 1, and Spring semester bills are due December 1.

Payment Options

The following payment methods are available, in any combination, to assist in covering the cost of your Champlain College education.

  • Champlain’s Touchnet billing system offers students and their families the ability to make payments by electronic check or credit card on a secure online network. Please note: Credit and debit card users will be assessed a 2.85% fee.

  • Champlain College offers the flexibility to pay billable costs through a 5-month or 4-month payment plan each semester. The 5-month plan begins in June, and the 4-month plan begins in July. There is a small enrollment fee, and payments are interest-free. You will have to enroll in the payment plan each semester by the billing due date.

Financial Aid Disbursements

A disbursement is when your financial aid is applied to your student account balance (bill).

There are typically 2 disbursements each year. One at the beginning of the Fall semester and a second at the beginning of the Spring semester.

Student Refunds

If your financial aid award overpays your account balance for the semester, you will receive a refund from the Office of Student Accounts. Refunds are issued after your enrollment is confirmed, usually the third week of the semester. We encourage you to enroll in electronic deposit to have your refunds direct deposited to your bank account for overpayments. Students who do not enroll for electronic refunds will be issued a check.
