Students incur a financial obligation to the College upon registering for classes. Payment is due by the specified due date of each semester, or at the time of registration if after the semester's due date, regardless of whether the bill is received in the mail. A balance remaining due on a student's account at the end of the first week of the semester's classes will be considered delinquent and subject to late fees.

Statements are mailed to the billing address the student specifies during the admissions process or at the time of registration. Please notify the accounting office in writing of a change in your billing address, or by e-mail to accounting@hood.edu.

The College reserves the right to withdraw a student at any time during a semester if the College is notified that a parent's and/or student's personal check in payment of financial obligations has been refused by the College's bank.

Graduating students must have all financial matters settled before:

  • Participation in graduation exercises is allowed (baccalaureate and commencement);
  • A student is graduated or a diploma is issued; and
  • Grades and transcripts are released.

Referral to Collection Agency

By registering for classes, the student agrees that in the event the student becomes delinquent or defaults in paying charges due to Hood College, the student agrees to reimburse Hood College the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 33 1/3% of the debt, and all cost and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, Hood College incurs in such collection efforts.
