Billing, Payment Plans, and Due Dates

Everything You Need to Know

Clark University has partnered with TouchNet to bring students and families the Student Accounts Bill + Payment Center, your one-stop place to manage your student account. Here you can view bills, create on-demand statements, see term balances, invite authorized users to set up logins, select a Clark-managed payment plan, and set up fast and easy electronic refund profiles.

Students are responsible for paying tuition, fees, and all other charges by the due date of each month. Make sure you are checking your student email as that is where you will receive billing notices and other important communications. As an authorized access user in TouchNet, you will also receive monthly email notifications when the bills are generated.

Clark University accepts payment by cash, check, international funds transfers, and online ACH (electronic payment from bank account) or credit card.

Cash payments can be made at the Cashier’s Office located at 939 Main St., 3rd Floor, Room 318.

Check payments by mail can be sent to Clark University, Cashier’s Office, 950 Main St., Worcester, MA 01610.

Online payments via ACH check or credit card can be made by students via CU Web. Anyone other than the student must be authorized by the student to make online payments. To make an ACH payment (from a checking or savings account) you will need to enter your bank’s routing (ABA) number and your bank account number. The amount of your payment will then be withdrawn from your bank account. Credit card payments can only be made online. MasterCard, Discover, and American Express are accepted and there is a 2.85 percent fee for credit card transactions.

Consider tuition insurance to supplement and strengthen our refund policy.

We believe it’s important to offer an easy, affordable way to protect the investment your family has made in higher education. That’s why Clark University has partnered with GradGuard™ to provide our families
with tuition insurance from Allianz Global Assistance featuring special plans and rates not available to the general public.

This coverage expands the scope of our refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, room, board and other fees for covered withdrawals at any time during the semester.

The deadline to apply is the day before the first day of classes each semester.

Allianz Global Assistance is the world-leader in specialty insurance and assistance—helping over 200 million people protect their tuition payments, travel plans and more each year.

Learn more at GradGuard.com/email/clarku or call 1-866-724-4384.

We offer two options for international students to pay for Clark University tuition and fees. We encourage you to consider TransferMate or Flywire as a cost-effective and expedited way to make your payments.

These options allow you to:

  • Pay from almost any country and any bank.
  • Avoid unexpected bank fees and ensure competitive exchange rates.
  • Track your payments from start to finish.

Additional Information for Graduate Students

  • It is important for a student who plans to finish their degree at the end of any given semester to complete the Application for Degree in CUWeb by a pre-determined date established by the Registrar’s office.  The Registrar’s Office will email students the application and instructions to their Clark email.
  • Students who do not pay their accounts by the pre-determined due date each semester will receive an email notifying them a hold will be placed on their record.  This hold will prevent students from making adjustments (e.g., adding, dropping) to their registration; viewing their online transcript; and requesting an official transcript.  Students will also be at risk of financial withdrawal and/or having their registration cancelled.
  • Students will be assessed a late payment fee  of $200 if they have not paid their account balance by the due date.
  • During add/drop, students will be able to make changes to their registration without financial penalty, as long as their account has been paid and there are no current holds on their records.
  • Any course withdrawals made after the end of the add/drop period will be subject to the Graduate refund policy.  Other changes made to the student’s schedule (e.g., late adds, changing unit value) after the add/drop period may result in additional charges and a late registration fee of $100.
  • The University offers graduate students the option of paying their financial obligations using our owned managed payment plans in the Student Accounts Bill + Payment Center.
  • Students planning to use financial aid to pay their financial obligation should submit necessary paperwork to the Financial Aid Office by the pre-determined date established by Financial Aid Office each semester.
  • Any graduate student (full-time or part-time) registering for a summer semester or term will receive an email with instructions to view charges in Cashnet and pay their account by a specified due date.

Students in full-time graduate programs will receive electronic semester invoices every fall and spring semester. Students will be billed based upon course units.

The semester invoice will include fees, tuition remission and other fellowship awards for students in full-time programs.

Part-time students receive an email to their Clark email account with instructions to view their student account and pay their account by a due date specified in the email.  Charges for Spring 2020 will be assessed on November 18, 2019 if registered for classes and thereafter upon registration.  The Part-time student billing due date for Spring 2020 will be January 3, 2020.  Part-time students who register after January 3, 2020, will be expected to pay their account balance 48 hours after registering.

CUWEB or Cashnet will reflect tuition charges for current registered course units, fees, tuition remission and other fellowship awards.  If a student later adds additional course unit(s) additional charges will be assessed.  The student is responsible for viewing their account in CU Web – or Cashnet and paying any account balance.

Payment Plans

We understand that it is not always possible or preferred to pay your entire balance by the semester due date. An option that Clark offers to all students is our own managed four or five month payment plans in the Student Accounts Bill + Payment Center.

Payments can be made from your bank account (electronic transfer/ACH) or using a credit or debit card. Payments made using your bank account will not incur extra fees. Credit card payments will have additional 2.85% fee added to your total payment.

All payment plans have a $45 enrollment fee. Late payments are subject to a $25 late payment fee. You can choose to make a down payment, make your own payments by the installment dates, or have them scheduled.

Enrollment for our plans for the Fall 2021 semester begins June 1, 2021.

NOTE: The plan may begin before the semester statements are published, however students are encouraged to use the estimator tools available in the Student Accounts Bill + Payment Center as well as their Student Accounts Counselors for help estimating a more precise balance due and the down payment. Once the statements have been published, the payment plan can be adjusted to meet the exact balance due at no extra cost.
