Mount Holyoke College Payment Plan

The College administers the Mount Holyoke College Payment Plan through CASHNet/Higher One.  The Payment Plan allows semester payments to be paid in installments throughout the semester.  Both students and parents can use the payment plan to manage the student’s account.  Enrollment begins after the semester eBill is published.

The first payment for the fall semester is due July 31 and the last payment is made by November 15.  The first payment for the spring semester is due December 31 and the last payment is made by April 15.  With the exception of the first installment each semester, all installments are due on the 15th of each month.
