Amherst College generates an electronic tuition statement each semester.  The fall term billing email notification will be available July 15, 2021 and the balance due must be received on or before August 6, 2021. All payment plan arrangements through Nelnet/TMS to cover the fall term balance must also be established and up to date by the payment due date of August 6th. The spring term bill will be available by December 15, 2021 and payment must be received by the College on or before January 7, 2022. Additional billing statements are also issued online during each semester, which will include any other miscellaneous charges, fees, fines or credits that are posted to the student’s account statement.

Email notifications will be sent to students and their Authorized Users ("Family and Friends") each time a new statement has been uploaded to the account.  These statements can be viewed online at AC Data

The total balance due must be settled before a student will be cleared for course registration.  Students may also be required to contact the Financial Aid Office or the Controller’s Office prior to registration in order to finalize paperwork, sign loan notes, or to clear any remaining unpaid balance.
