Tuition and Payment Plans

We will provide your first eBilling statement in early July for the fall semester. Payment is due in early August, so it is not too early to begin planning—in some detail—how you will fund your college education. Electronic invoices will be sent monthly. These statements will be electronically sent to the student’s Rensselaer email address. Students may designate others to access their bill.

Academic year expenses for 2016-2017 include annual tuition, annual room and board, annual fees, miscellaneous expenses, and laptop.

Room and board charges are reflected in your choice of meal plan and room assignment. These figures may be more or less than the average figure given. There will be a health insurance fee for students who do not have insurance coverage equivalent to that of Rensselaer. However, this fee may be waived if you have equivalent health insurance—this waiver MUST be done online.

The Rensselaer Tuition Payment Plan

As part of our commitment to make education more affordable, Rensselaer offers a Tuition Payment Plan. This plan, administered by Higher One, Inc.:

  • Allows you to meet all or part of the academic year’s expenses in ten, nine, or eight equal payments. This extra time to pay may limit borrowing and conserve savings.
  • Is available to you interest-free, with only a $60 enrollment fee paid once each academic year. This nonrefundable fee covers all costs for the secure handling of your payments. To encourage timely payments, a late fee may be assessed.
  • Is completely flexible. Simply estimate your monthly payment and enroll. If your expenses or financial aid change, you may adjust your payment amount by calling or writing Higher One, Inc. You may withdraw from the plan at any time (with complete payment of tuition).
  • Is convenient. Automated account information is available 24 hours a day via, and consultants are available from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays, EST.
