Student Government Association (SGA) Fee
The Student Government Association (SGA) fee is required of all graduate students in campus-based programs, which includes students enrolled in the fall in the M.A.T. program. The SGA establishes the fee and determines the distribution of the funds. This fee supports campus-based events and organizations and the Five College buses. For 2018-2019 the SGA fee is $109.
Massachusetts law requires that all students have adequate health insurance coverage. Mount Holyoke recommends the Student Health Insurance Plan offered through the College. In July, students are billed for health insurance for one calendar year with coverage beginning August 15. Domestic students may waive coverage with proof of comparable coverage in another plan prior to the start of fall classes (or spring classes for spring matriculants). Students waiving coverage must do so annually by the waiver deadline. All international students are required to carry the Mount Holyoke College Student Health Insurance Plan unless they are covered by an embassy plan. For 2018-2019 the annual cost for health insurance is $2,055.
Current students may order official transcripts through my.mtholyoke. The $4 transcript fee will be charged to an active student’s account. A student must pay all past due balances on the account before transcripts will be issued. Former students must prepay the transcript fee.
Late Drop Fee
Applicants who need to withdraw from a January or Summer course should send an immediate email clearly stating the request to withdraw from a specific course and session date to firstname.lastname@example.org.If the email message is received before the first class meeting, the applicant will be eligible for a full refund.
How Will I Receive My Bill?
No paper bills will be sent. An email will be sent to your Mount Holyoke email account when bills have been posted and are ready for viewing. Payment for all charges is typically due within 30 days. Information on eBills and setting up authorized users can be found at https://www.mtholyoke.edu/sfs/cost/payment-of-bill.

Students who withdraw or take a leave of absence during the fall or spring semesters will be refunded per the schedule outlined below. The official withdrawal date for a student is determined by the program director. The Professional and Graduate Education office must receive written notice of the student’s intent to withdraw. Please see Withdrawal from the College in the Academic Regulations chapter for more information.
Students will be refunded 100 percent of their previously paid tuition, less the enrollment deposit for new students, if the Professional and Graduate Education office receives written notice of an official withdrawal or leave of absence before the first day of classes. If a student officially withdraws or takes a leave of absence on or after the first day of classes of a particular term or session of the fall or spring semester, refunds occur on the following schedule:
Fall and Spring Refund Schedule
|Week||Percentage of Tuition, Room & Board Refunded|
Summer Session Tuition Refund Schedule
Summer courses are typically shorter than fall and spring courses. Students requesting refunds before the first day of the Summer session are entitled to a full refund, less the enrollment deposit paid.
January Tuition Refund
January session is typically only two weeks long. For this reason, refunds are not given to students who withdraw after the first day of the January session. Students requesting refunds on or before the first day of the January session are entitled to a full refund, less the enrollment deposit paid.
Refund of Scholarships
If a student receiving a scholarship drops or withdraws from a class, the amount of the scholarship applied towards the student bill will be proportional to the amount billed per the tuition refund schedule above.
Refund of Federal Student Loan
Federal aid refund policies are different than institutional refund policies. For students receiving federal loans for the fall or spring, “earned” loan funds are prorated based on the time enrolled (percent earned vs. unearned). Grad PLUS loans are returned before the Federal Direct Student Loan when loan funds must be returned.
Refund of Fees
There is no refund of the Student Government Association fee if a student withdraws on or after the first day of classes. During the fall and spring semesters, no per-credit tuition adjustments will be made for classes dropped after the fifteenth day of classes unless the student takes a leave of absence or withdraws from the College at which point the above refund schedule will apply. If there are any credits on a withdrawn student's account after charges are adjusted, refunds will be sent to the student within 30 days of notification of change in status.
