Simmons College offers a variety of payment options. We accept personal checks, traveler's checks, bank checks, money orders, wire transfers and credit cards. All payments must be made in U.S currency. Below you will find detailed information about acceptable methods of payment and about the tuition payment plan.

Online Payments: Credit Cards and Electronic Checks
Simmons provides the convenience of making a quick and easy online payment towards your student account. You may choose to pay your bill by credit card (American Express, Discover or MasterCard) or by electronic check.
If you are a student, this is available to you through the Student Account Center which you can access through Simmons Connection. If you would like to make a payment on behalf of a student, please visit the Authorized Users section on the Online Tuition Payment page.
A convenience fee of 2.75% will be charged to the provider for the credit card payment option. Simmons College does not charge or collect the convenience fee. There is no fee for the electronic check option.
Instructions for payments via wire transfers will be mailed with the first billing statement sent each semester. You may also request instructions by calling the Office of Student Financial Services at (617) 521-2001.
Students who are eligible for tuition reimbursement from their employers may be able to register for future semesters without the required payment only after they have paid for and completed their current semester at Simmons College. A payment for tuition reimbursement is generally remitted to the student upon the completion of the course(s) as well as submission of the grade(s) and a receipt of payment for the course(s). Therefore, the current semester must be paid completely to be eligible for tuition reimbursement from the employer.
Subsequent registrations will be accepted and processed without the required payment if there is no prior balance on the account, if the new semester directly follows the last registered period and the student can provide the Office of Student Financial Services with verification of their employer’s reimbursement policy. In addition, the College will require the student to sign the Agreement of Employer Reimbursement in lieu of this payment. It should be clearly understood that the Office of Student Financial Services expects to receive your reimbursed payment from the prior semester within three (3) weeks of the new semester. If not paid promptly, your account will be subject to late payments fees and future registration clearance and/or approval under this policy will not be granted.
NOTE: You are only eligible for this benefit when you enroll in semesters that run back-to-back (i.e.: fall to spring or spring to summer). Spring to fall does not qualify since your reimbursement from spring should be received by the time the payment for the fall semester is due.
