Financial Agreements

The College reserves the right to change its schedule of tuition, residence and board, and special fees when it is deemed advisable. The College will not be responsible for the loss of money or other valuables. Personal property is the student’s own responsibility. It is recommended that students residing in campus housing contact their personal or family insurance carrier to review coverage. Any damage to College property will be charged to the student.


Students are expected to make payment arrangements with the Office of Student Accounts (Duns Scotus Hall, Room 112) by the first day of classes each semester for the amount of the semester charges less any financial aid and/or bank loans. A $100 late payment fee will be assessed if arrangements are made after this date. If financial aid and/or bank loans are pending by the first day of classes, students must sign a promissory note in the Office of Student Accounts in order to complete the registration process and be admitted to classes. Registrations will be cancelled for any student who does not make satisfactory payment arrangements. Tuition bills are mailed to students if they register at least seven (7) days before the start of a semester. Students who register after that date or make changes to their original registration should call or come to the Office of Student Accounts for their bill. Checks should be made payable to Daemen College and mailed to the Office of Student Accounts, Duns Scotus Hall, Room 112, 4380 Main Street, Amherst, New York 14226.

Other payment options are available such as payment by Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, American Express or the Daemen College Promissory Note. Please call (716) 839-8213 for additional information. All financial obligations must be settled in full before any claim is made for a degree, semester grade reports, or transcripts. Students will be charged for collection agency fees and reasonable attorney’s fees incurred in enforcing collection of any and all outstanding amounts owed to the College.

Withdrawals and Refunds

The College views registration as the student’s official statement of intent to enroll in a subsequent semester. Therefore, once registered, the student is financially obligated for the payment of all applicable tuition and fees unless a Notice of Intent to Withdraw form is filed in the Office of Academic Advisement, Room 108, Research and Information Commons. The date of withdrawal will in every case be considered to be the date on which a Notice of Intent to Withdraw form has been filed. Should a student fail to follow the withdrawal procedure outlined above, no refund will be made. The tuition refund policy for all students will be as follows:

 Prior to and within first week of classes 100%
Within the second week   80%
Within the third week    60%
Within the fourth week    40%
Within the fifth week    20%
After the fifth week    No Refund

If a student’s enrollment is canceled because of an error on the part of the College, full tuition and fees will be refunded. The refunds will be sent to the student within thirty days of filing a properly completed Notice of Intent to Withdraw form.

Credit for Financial Aid

It is the student’s responsibility to complete all arrangements for any financial aid which he or she may be eligible to receive. Credit toward college bills for financial aid awards will be given when the payment or award notice, approved by the appropriate agency, is received by the Office of Student Accounts, Room 112, Duns Scotus Hall. The student must resolve any financial aid and college bill discrepancies through consultation with the Financial Aid Office and the Office of Student Accounts.
