If the college owes you money, you’ll get an email notification and a credit statement. Reply to the email to request a refund.
Some offices post their charges after the quarter ends, so be sure to check your email over the break.
Tuition and fees are due each quarter on the fifth day of the quarter. See upcoming tuition deadlines.
We send the first quarterly bill to your evergreen.edu email three weeks before the quarter starts. If you register after this, you will not receive an initial bill, but your tuition is still due on the fifth day of the quarter.
If you have veteran’s benefits or if some other organization is paying your tuition, we can’t bill them until the 10th day of the quarter. You’ll get a bill with a balance until your benefits come through.
Authorize a user for payments and billing
If your parent or other family member is paying your tuition, you can set them up as an authorized user:
- Log in to My Evergreen.
- Select “Web Payment.”
- Scroll down to “Authorized User” and choose “set-up.”
- Enter your parent’s or guardian’s information and email address so they can view your charges, receive billing notifications and make payments to your student account.
By law, a student’s information cannot be released to anyone other than the student without a written release. Student information includes bills. If you need billing information, ask the student to complete a FERPA release form on My Evergreen. Learn more about the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
Holds and collections
If you have an outstanding balance that is over 30 days past due, you won’t be able to register. The hold notification in My Evergreen should let you know if your hold is related to an outstanding balance. Interest charges on past due accounts are assessed at the rate of 1% per month.
Outstanding balances that are more than 90 days past due may be sent to collections. Contact our office to make payments arrangements before your account is past due.
In the event your account is sent to a collection agency you will be responsible for any fees (which may be based on a percentage of up to 33⅓ of the debt) charged in addition to the original balance due. All costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees that the college incurs in a collection effort must be reimbursed by the account holder.
