Billing and Refunds

Billing Policy

SFS Billing Timeline and Deadlines

The deadlines for tuition, room & board payments due to SFS are as follows (effective beginning Spring 2017):

SFS Summer I or Combined: April 1st

SFS Summer II: April 30th

SFS Fall Programs: June 1st

SFS Spring Programs: October 30th

Students will receive an invoice from our billing department about 30 days prior to these deadlines via mail or email. You will not be allowed to participate in the program with an outstanding tuition balance. For applicants who apply after these deadlines, tuition is due upon receipt of the invoice.

Please note that these are not application deadlines and we will work with students on an individual basis if they apply to a session after these dates have passed.

If your home school will make these payments for you, we will send an invoice to your home school. Your acceptance email will indicate who is responsible for making these payments to SFS.
