Payment Plan Information

Balances must be paid in full prior to graduation and cannot be deferred using a payment plan or employer reimbursement if a student plans to attend commencement or to receive a diploma/transcript. Payment plans can not be used for past due balances. Payment plans used to cover a balance from a previous semester will be canceled, and the enrollment fee can not be refunded.

**Balances can be edited when setting up a payment plan. Bills will be sent out by Seton Hill College regarding balance due. Once the bill has been received, the student or plan owener can go online and make the adjustment.
