Student Accounts FAQ

No. You do not have to enroll in the University's health insurance, but you must provide proof of other health insurance coverage to waive the school's policy. If you are already covered under your parents’ health insurance or your own, you may waive your school health insurance program. Students who wish to waive the school’s health insurance must complete a waiver form online through University Health Plans by the applicable deadline. You can find detailed information on premium costs, waiver qualifications and deadlines on our health insurance page

Electronic bills (E-bills) for each semester's tuition and fees are sent beginning in June (fall statement) and November (spring statement). Students enrolled in an accelerated program will also receive an e-bill in April (summer statement). Your family can pay each bill in one lump sum, arrange to spread payments over each semester, finance the balance with a student/parent loan, or use any combination of the three.

E-Bill

E-Bill is MCPHS University's official method for sending account statements. E-Bills are delivered electronically through the Student Account Center (SAC). See the SAC for more information about account statements and accessing the SAC.

The Tuition Payment Plan lets families spread payments out during each semester and requires no application for aid. This an interest-free payment plan each semester, 
which divides your balance into equal monthly payments. An enrollment fee is required each semester to participate in the Tuition Repayment Plan.
Students with balances due receive monthly ebill statements for their records, about updated student account activity.
Your balance is past due with the University. You have missed the deadline to pay and have not made adequate arrangements. This fee will not be waived.
Student refunds are available as soon as administratively possible after the Drop/Add period and disbursement of financial aid. Pending financial aid may require action on the part of the student prior to disbursement, which if delayed, may delay your refund. Please contact our office with any questions related to financial aid.
 
Student refunds will be issued via direct deposit into a student’s checking or savings account. Students should enroll through Web Advisor. For questions about direct deposit, enrollment or terms and conditions, please contact Student Financial Services.
