There is no one right way to pay for an education—each family situation is unique. Most families use a combination of payment options.
The options listed below may be used individually or in combination. If you would like assistance determining the best option for your family, please
contact our office and your counselor will discuss your options with you. The Fall 2014 bill payment is due by August 6, 2014, and the Spring 2015 bill payment is due by December 17, 2014. Accounts that are paid late will be delinquent and charged a late fee.

Many families will borrow to help cover educational costs. In addition to reviewing our
Parent Loan and Private Student Loan pages to learn more about educational loans, we encourage you to do your own research to find the best loan option for you and your family.
Emmanuel welcomes all college savings plans. If you have a college savings plan such as a 529 plan, please contact the plan provider to have the funds transferred to Emmanuel College.
If you are using a pre-paid tuition plan to pay for tuition, such as the UPlan, please provide the Office of Student Financial Services with the provider name and the amount you will be using for the upcoming academic year. Once we receive this information, we will credit your account and ensure the timely receipt of payment from the plan provider.
Credit/debit card payments may be made online via Online Academic Resources (OAR) on
MySaints using your student login, or at www.afford.com/emmanuel using the option "Make a One-Time Payment" (student login not required).
Students and families who choose to make payments with a credit/debit card will be assessed a 2.99% convenience fee, which is retained by a third-party service provider. This fee may be avoided by paying with a checking or savings account on the same website. Online bank (or ACH) payments allow funds to be transferred to the College from a designated bank using the bank's routing and account numbers.
