Financial Clearance
The Student Financial Services office reviews all student accounts for financial clearance. In order to be considered financially clear, a student must have a zero balance through either anticipated financial assistance (certified and in process if a student loan) or payment made in full. Balances on student accounts are due on July 15 for the Fall Semester and December 15 for the Spring Semester. Students who are not financially clear will be blocked from registration. Please see the Academic Catalog for complete information on Financial Clearance.
Acceptance Deposit
This deposit is required of all new and readmitted students at the time of their acceptance and is an indication of a student's intention to enroll the next semester. The deposit is credited against the semester charges.
Room Deposit
Continuing students wishing to participate in housing selection for the fall semester are required to make a housing deposit. This deposit is part of the Acceptance Deposit and will be credited to the student's anticipated semester charges.
Contingency Deposit
All student accounts are assessed a $100 contingency deposit for the fall semester. This required deposit will be used to cover all or a portion of any unpaid charges at the time the student leaves Franklin Pierce. Credit balances will be refunded at the time the student graduates. All students enrolled in undergraduate programs at the College at Rindge are subject to both the institutional and contingency fees.
