Honors for me was a really wonderful program because it was conversation-based, which made us think about things that we wouldn't necessarily think about in other traditional academic settings. Learning about other people and the way they view the world is a really great thing and was also relevant to my major due to psychology's relation to the mind and mental processes.

Understanding Your Bill

Student Account

Your student account is a cumulative balance account which includes all of the charges and credits applied to it during your enrollment at Curry College. Some examples include, but are not limited to: tuition and fees, housing and meals, financial aid credits and adjustments, payments made to your account, late fees, the Student Health Insurance fee and possibly fines, such as library and parking.

This account becomes a part of your permanent information file and remains after you graduate or cease to be enrolled.

Billing Statements

Students are billed at their permanent home address twice per year. Fall semester bills will be mailed in early June for enrolled students with a due date in early July. Subsequent bills are mailed monthly and are due in full upon receipt. Spring bills will be mailed in mid-November with a due date in mid-December. Subsequent bills are mailed monthly and are due in full upon receipt. A $200 late fee will be assessed for late payment.

Curry College offers a variety of financing options for our students. Please contact the Student Financial Services Office at (617) 333-2354 or via email to fin-aid@curry.edu for additional information.

Enrolled students can view their current bill online by logging in to their myCurry Portal account.  New transactions may take up to 24 hours to appear online.

Good Financial Standing

All tuition and fees are payable on the date specified prior to the opening of each semester. Any student who fails to settle all outstanding balances is at risk for losing the semester's course schedule and, if applicable, their housing assignment.  Additionally, the student may not check in at the start of the semester nor depart for study abroad/exchange programs, register for or attend classes, participate in student activities including athletics, utilize campus facilities such as the Fitness Center, be provided transcript service, receive grade reports, or be granted a degree. The student is responsible for any costs incurred by the College in collecting past due balances. Students must be in Financial Good Standing in order to participate in all Curry College programs and activities included but not limited to participation as an athlete, resident assistant, student government leader, and club member. To be in Financial Good Standing, a student must have settled their student accounts for all accounts currently due. A student's account is considered "settled" when it is either paid or covered by one of the following:

  • Pending financial aid, including alternative loans, with no outstanding paperwork or other issues remaining. Funds must be approved by the lender to be disbursed directly to the College at a specific future date.
  • A current and up-to-date payment plan established through Curry's third- party servicer, Tuition Management Systems (TMS) which allows payments to be spread over the course of the academic year.

Pending Financial Aid Payments

Students must complete and return all additional documentation, verification, corrections and/or new information requested by Curry's Office of Student Financial Services or the outside agency to which an application was submitted. Financial aid awards will not be posted to a student account if any paperwork is missing. If paperwork remains outstanding, the financial aid may be forfeited and the student will remain responsible to pay any amounts that would have been covered by the financial aid.

Health Insurance

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires colleges and universities to provide a Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) with minimum statutory levels of coverage. Curry College provides this coverage to all students who are enrolled in at least 75% of the full time curriculum. Unless an insurance waiver is completed by the specified due date, insurance will be provided by the College. 

Insurance Rates for 2018-2019:
The rate for the 2018-2019 year is $2,986 for the full year and $1,741 for students starting in the spring 2019 semester. For additional information on the Curry College sponsored student health insurance plan, brochures are available online at universityhealthplans.com/curry.

To Notify Curry About Errors in Your Student Account

If you believe your bill contains an error or you wish to dispute any item contained on it, describe the nature of your dispute in writing and mail it to Curry College, Attn: Student Financial Services, 1071 Blue Hill Avenue, Milton, MA 02186 or email to studentaccounts@curry.edu.

Contact us in writing as soon as possible to preserve your rights. We must hear from you in writing no later than 60 days from the time that we sent you the first bill on which the error or problem occurred. Please provide the following information in your letter:

  1. Your name and student ID number
  2. The dollar amount of the suspected error

After we receive your written notice, we will acknowledge your letter within seven days. Within 14 days from the receipt of your letter, we will either correct the error, or explain our findings to you.

Credit Balances and Refunds

If your cash payments and financial aid, including any disbursements of Federal Title IV funds such as Federal Pell Grants or Federal Direct Loans, create a credit balance on your student account, we will retain these credits on your student account to be used against the charges of future terms of enrollment, only if you complete a Credit Balance Authorization Form. Otherwise, a student refund check, made payable to the student, will be mailed to your permanent address according to the time frame established by the federal government.

Student Refund Checks

You may request a student refund check for any portion of any credit balance on your student account even if you have filed a CBA Form (see "credit balances" above). Refund checks will only be issued for actual credit balances and will not be issued based on "pending" payments. Student refund checks normally require approximately two weeks to process. All student refund checks will be made payable to the student. We will mail your check to your permanent address or you may request to pick it up.

Please be aware that institutional based funds will not post to your student account until approximately one week after that semester's Add/Drop deadline. Refer to the Academic Calendar for Add/Drop dates.

Bookstore Vouchers

You may request a Bookstore Voucher up to the amount of your expected credit balance, including pending financial aid payments. However, pending TMS monthly payment plan payments will not be considered for this purpose. The vouchers may be used to purchase textbooks in the Campus Bookstore.  All vouchers expire 30 days from the date of issue. Unused voucher amounts will be returned to your student account within 60 days of their expiration date.  You must have a Credit Balance Authorization form (CBA) on file to request a Bookstore Voucher.  You can obtain a CBA form from the Student Financial Services Office or by downloading the form from this website and submitting it to our office.
