Student Account & Tuition Information

For many families, finances can be the "scariest" part of attending college. Rest assured, it is the goal of Student Accounts to provide comfort and support.

Electronic Billing Statements:  No Paper Statements Provided
View your Student Account Billing Statement through The Hub (student portal).  Students and parents/guardians (if the parent/guardian's email address has been provided) receive email notice when term billing statements are ready.  Notices are sent out approximately one month prior to the due dates listed above for each term.  Statements can be viewed, printed or downloaded.  Please log into The Hub using the username provided to you in Mailing #1 "Connecting to Carleton", and reset your password.

Students, it is your responsibility to make your Student Account Statement available to your parents, or other individuals who may be assisting with payment.

Parent/Guest Access Account is available through The Hub.

Student Account Statement:
View tuition, room, board, and Carleton Student Association (CSA) fees charged to your Student Account.  The statement also shows payments, college grants and other financial aid awards applied to your account each term.  Outside scholarships (tuition benefits, Rotary scholarships, etc.) are credited to your student account each term as the funds are received by the College.  Other fees, will be applied to your student account over the course of the school year, if applicable.  Fees may include music lessons, art material fees, library fines, health and counseling bills, parking registration, parking violations, and various other fees.

Student Employment:
If you would like to apply all or part of your work earnings toward your Student Account, please complete the "Apply Work Earnings to Tuition" online form, on The Hub.  Please keep in mind that your work earnings are applied to your Student Account each pay period, NOT all at once. Students are allowed to reduce their "Amount to Pay" by 75% of their eligible unpaid work earnings for the term.  Students can put more than 75% of their work earnings toward their student account, but 75% of the earnings is calculated when determining their balance due for the term.  

Example:  A student has chosen to apply 100% or $927.00 in work earnings towards their Student Account.  The student may subtract $695.00, which is 75% of $927.00, from the balance due, and pay the difference.  If a student earns more than the estimated amount of $695.00, the credit will be applied to the next term, or the student can request a refund.

Importance of timely payments:
Carleton College reserves the right to withdraw a student if their payment schedule has not been met or their health insurance forms have not been received.

Online Payments:
Online payment is the preferred form of payment. Payments can be made electronically through the Hub, a secure student payment portal that confirms the balance due on the student account. Students are able to enter their US domestic bank routing number (the 9-digit number in the lower left corner of a personal check) and checking account number (the set of numbers that follow the routing number) for an automatic payment.

Check/Cash Payments:  (Please include Student's ID# and Name)
Please mail your paper check and 529 Savings Plan payments to the address below.
