Payment Plans

Hesston College understands flexible payment options are important. The college has designed four payment plan options to meet the varied needs of students. All students enrolled at Hesston College are required to select a payment plan and make payment arrangements for each semester prior to beginning a new semester. The four options are as follows:

    1. Regular Payment Plan – Pay semester bill in full prior to the start of each semester. If no other plan is selected, student is defaulted to this payment plan.
      • Fall Semester: Due and payable Aug. 2, 2021
      • Spring Semester: Due and payable Jan. 7, 2022
      • Summer Semester: Due and payable May 16, 2022

A late payment fee of $50 will apply if payments have not been made by the due dates above. Late payment fees will be added to late accounts on the first day of classes for each semester.

    1. Quarterly Payment Plan – Split semester bill into two payments (payment at beginning and middle of semester).
      • Fall Semester: Half the semester balance is due and payable Aug. 2, 2021. The remainder is due and payable Oct. 8, 2021.
      • Spring Semester: Half the semester balance is due and payable Jan. 7, 2022. The remainder is due and payable Mar. 10, 2022.

A $25 enrollment fee per semester will apply for the Quarterly Payment Plan. A $50 late payment fee will apply if the second semester payment is not made by the established due date (Oct. 8 or Mar. 10).

    1. Monthly Payment Plan – Make even monthly payments via automatic withdrawal from your bank account.

The Monthly Payment Plan is a no-interest plan. After all applicable annual financial assistance is applied to the student’s total annual charges, including an annual enrollment fee, the remaining balance is divided into 10 or 12 equal monthly payments for those starting in the fall semester and 6 equal monthly payments for those starting in the spring.

      • For the 6-month plan, first payment is due no later than Dec. 17, 2021 (plan annual enrollment fee is $25) only available to students starting at spring semester
      • For the 10-month plan, first payment is due no later than Aug. 16, 2021 (plan annual enrollment fee is $75)
      • For the 12-month plan, first payment is due no later than June 15, 2021 (plan annual enrollment fee is $25)
      • Final payments for all plans are due no later than May 16, 2022.

Monthly plan payments will be made using automatic withdrawal from your bank account (ACH) on the 5th or 15th of each month until the account is paid in full. Payments can begin as early as June 5 (June 7, 2021) or as late as August 15 (August 16, 2021) for those beginning in the fall semester.

Hesston College will adjust the final payment due if less than the full ACH amount to clear the account and ACH will discontinue after final payment is completed. In no event will an ACH amount be deducted greater than the amount agreed upon in advance.

If the account is cleared prior to completion of the final installment, the plan will be terminated.

Returned bank drafts due to insufficient funds or closed accounts will result in a $25 fee to the student account.

Monthly Installment Plans can be initiated online through myHesston.

    1. Special Arrangement Plan – In consultation with our Business Office, create a special plan which fits within your unique financial situation.

If a student is unable to meet any of the above plans, a special payment arrangement that clearly lists dates and payment expectations during the enrollment period may be established with the Business Office. A minimum payment of $2,000 is required to initiate this arrangement. Please call the Business Office at 620-327-8215 to discuss special arrangements prior to the beginning of classes. An annual enrollment fee of $100 applies for any special payment arrangements.

If a student’s financial aid process has not been completed, they still need to select a payment plan based on their estimated cost to attend Hesston College. Once they have completed their financial aid process and all amounts are finalized, adjustments to the payment plan can be made. Once they have selected a payment plan, they will receive payment reminders/invoices prior to your selected payment dates.

Payments can be made via check, ACH (automatic withdrawal from bank account), money orders, wire transfers, swiped debit card or cash in United States funds. Payments can be made at the Hesston College Business Office on weekdays between 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4:15 p.m. CT. Questions? Call the Business Office at 620-327-8215.

Students can also make payments online using a credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover) or debit card by logging into their myHesston account via the Hesston College website. Visit www.myhesston.edu and click the “myFinances“ tab on the left side of the screen. Then click on “myAccount.” Card payments over $2,000 are not accepted for tuition & fees and the college encourages no payment of tuition & fees with credit cards.

If you have any questions please contact the Hesston College Business Office at 620-327-8215 during the business hours listed above, or by emailing lori.kingsley@hesston.edu or karl.brubaker@hesston.edu.

Hesston College reserves the right to not allow a student to move into the dorm or begin classes if they have not selected one of the above payment options by the start of the enrollment period. Failure to satisfy the selected payment plan in full for the current semester may affect continuing enrollment at Hesston College.

Past Due Accounts

All payments are required to be made based on established due dates specified in each payment plan. When payments are not made according to the selected payment plan, late fees will be assessed as outlined in the payment plan summary above. Outstanding balances that remain after a student is no longer enrolled at Hesston College will be subject to finance charges of 1.00% per month (12% A.P.R.). Finance charges will begin accruing 30 days after a student’s enrollment has ended. Failure to make payments in full will affect the availability/release of a student’s Hesston College transcript. Past due accounts may be referred to collection agencies, which will negatively affect a student’s credit standing.

Hesston College reserves the right to not allow a student to move into the dorm and to withdraw any student who has not selected one of the above payment options by the established due dates. Failure to make payment in full on the current semester account may affect continuing enrollment at Hesston College.
