Financial Arrangements

Registered students can view their accounts and make payments online. Log in to WebAdvisor and click on ‘‘Students’’; then click the ‘‘View Account and Make Payments’’ link. Students can view their real time account balance, view or print their statement, and make payments by credit card or e-check.

Payment is due by August 15 for Fall and December 15 for Spring . The Statement of Account will reflect the most accurate information available; however, adding or dropping classes or making changes to room assignments and meal plans may generate additional charges. Students are responsible for obtaining the information needed in order to pay tuition and fees by the due date(s). Payment arrangements must be made prior to due dates referenced above. All students are required to complete their financial aid paperwork and pay, or make arrangements to pay, their Fall balance before moving into college-owned housing . Priority registration for Winter/Spring will begin after the Fall break. However, students may not register for Winter/Spring until they have completed their financial aid paperwork and paid, or made arrangements to pay, their Winter/Spring balance.

Students having problems meeting their financial obligations to the College should address their questions or concerns to the student accounts representative . Failure to make payment arrangements with the Business Office will result in the student being subject to the Delinquent Student Accounts Policy located in the Student Handbook.

The College of Idaho reserves the right to withhold transcripts and grades and to suspend the ability to add or drop classes for students with unpaid balances.

Payment Options

  • Option 1
  • Pay the term balance by the due date. Most major credit cards are honored. Registered students can make payments online with a credit card or e-check. Students will need to log into their WebAdvisor account, click on the ‘‘Students’’ link and ‘‘View Account and Make Payments’’ link.

  • Option 2
  • Interest-Free Monthly Payment Option. This payment option is offered in partnership with Tuition Management Systems, Inc. (TMS) as an alternative to large, annual, or semester payments and helps limit borrowing. This plan offers the option of making 12, 10, or 8 monthly payments with the last payment being due in May. Early start-up allows students to spread payments over a longer period of time. The cost of this plan is $60 per year or $45 per term with no other fees or interest charges. You may call TMS for information and application at 1-800-356-8329 or go to All monthly payment plans are managed through TMS; no other monthly payment plans are available. The Business Office reserves the right to discontinue or to refuse the TMS option to those students who have shown a poor credit history with the College.

  • Option 3
  • Obtain additional loan funds through the Parent Plus Loan or a private Alternative Student loan.

Interest Charges

The College of Idaho reserves the right to charge interest at 1% per month on all unpaid balances (does not include accounts on monthly payment plan option) over 30 days. Interest will be added to student accounts on the 10th of each month.

Institutional Refund Policy

If a student withdraws on or before the 60% point in time of the semester, calculated using calendar days, the refund is determined by the total payment on the account from all sources, minus the charges for tuition, and fees for the enrollment period. Tuition is prorated for the attendance period. Student fees are non-refundable. Funds are returned to the Federal programs, institutional programs, outside scholarships, and then to the student.
