Evergreen does not charge nor collect the convenience fee. Evergreen contracted with a third party processor which will charge a 2.75% fee for this service. They accept Visa, American Express, Discover and MasterCard credit cards. Please note that a no-cost, secure electronic check payment option is available and requires you to enter your bank routing number and your checking or savings account number.
You will NOT be automatically disenrolled (dropped) from your classes for non-payment; you must drop your classes online if you choose not to attend. If payment in full is not made by the tuition deadline (fifth calendar day of each quarter), a fifty-dollar ($50.00) late payment fee will be assessed on your account and a one-percent (1%) monthly interest fee will be charged on account balances 30 days past-due. Additionally, a seventy-five dollar ($75) late payment fee will be assessed on the 30th calendar day if tuition and fees remain unpaid.
In accordance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), account and billing information will only be mailed or discussed with the student. However, students can sign a Release of Information.
Evergreen does not generate paper invoices for student account charges. Email messages are sent to the students' preferred email address around the 5th of each month to notify them of charges or credits on their accounts. To view the electronic billing statement, log on to my.evergreen.edu and follow these links:
- Student Financial Services
- Statement and Payment History
If your parents and/or another party are responsible for paying your invoice, you can copy the electronic statement as a .PDF file and forward it to them as an e-mail attachment. If you want your parents to receive an email letting them know that a billing statement has been released and can be viewed on your my.evergreen.edu account, you will need to complete a Release of information.
No. Tuition is due in full by the quarterly deadline (the fifth calendar day of each quarter) for pre-registered students, or at the time of registration for students registering on or after the due date. Please note that you will not be dropped for non-payment and that it is your responsibility to drop classes online to avoid tuition liabilities.

When is tuition statement information (1098-T) for federal tax deduction of educational expenses sent?

You should contact the Financial Aid office or your lending institution to verify the status of your loan and whether all steps in the process have been completed to allow your funds to be sent to The Evergreen State College.
No, we are on the receiving end of the funds just as you are. We can only determine when your excess check may be available after the loan is disbursed into your account by the Financial Aid Office.
You should contact your scholarship donor to verify that the funds have been sent to us. You can contact the scholarship coordinator in our office at 360-867-6303 if you need assistance.
Log on and view your student account detail in your my.evergreen.edu account. When you see a line item with the description "Refund", this indicates that a check or a direct deposit has been processed. E-refunds should be credited to your bank account within two business days. College issued checks are sent to the mailing address you have listed on your my.evergreen.edu account. Go to Direct Deposit Erefund for more information on how to enroll to have your refund sent directly to your bank account.
ALL checks are mailed to your mailing address unless you enroll in E-refund. Go to Direct Deposit eRefund for more information on how and when to register.
If you lose your ID card come to our office as soon as possible to cancel the lost card so it cannot be used by another person. There is a $25 charge for replacing the meal card.
If you leave campus housing you have the option of canceling your meal plan. You must contact the Residential and Dining office (RAD) in order to cancel your plan. Meal plans are not stopped/de-activated automatically when you leave Housing, and no refunds or cancellations are made the last thirty (30) days of the quarter.
