Health Insurance

All continuing students or newly matriculated students are required to have health insurance coverage. You will be automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan (PDF) unless proof of comparable coverage is provided and a waiver is submitted by deadline date. The fee for coverage from August 30, 2015 to August 29, 2016 is $1,911.

Questions regarding health insurance should be directed to the dean of students office at 909.621.8125 or nayers@hmc.edu.

Fees and Refunds

All charges (tuition, room, board, fees and deposits) must be paid in cash ($U.S.), by checks drawn on American or Canadian banks, or money order (international, if appropriate).

Payment Plan Fee

The Monthly Payment Plan is subject to a $50 service charge per semester. There is no fee for the Full Payment Plan.

Following are fees and deposits for which arrangement for payment must be made prior to the service.

Transcript Fee

A fee of $5 is charged for each official transcript. There is no charge for an unofficial transcript. Transcripts are issued only when obligations to the college have been paid in full or satisfactory arrangements have been made to do so. A transcript is sent out only at a student’s request.

Housing Deposit

Half ($150) of first-year students’ enrollment deposit ($300) is automatically converted to a housing damage deposit that is returned to students when they graduate or permanently leave the College. Each year, residence hall damage charges are deducted from the deposit and students are billed to return the deposit to $150. The other half of the enrollment deposit ($150) becomes a housing deposit that becomes a credit on a student’s first bill. The enrollment deposit is non-refundable, and therefore the damage and housing deposits are non-refundable for new students who decide not to attend Harvey Mudd.

Room Draw Deposit/Returning Students

Deposits are no longer required for participation in Room Draw for the 2015–16 academic year. To participate in Room Draw, you will need to submit a housing contract by the Room Draw deadline for the 2015–16 academic year. However, if you cancel the contract after participating in Room Draw and do not occupy a room, there will be a penalty fee of $300. Please contact michael_edwards@hmc.edu, assistant dean for residence life, if you have any questions regarding Room Draw.

Delinquent Accounts

Every Harvey Mudd student is responsible for meeting promptly any payment due to the College. The total charges on a student account for each semester, less financial aid, is the minimum amount due prior to the beginning of each semester per the due date on the Harvey Mudd College statement. A student account not meeting this requirement is considered delinquent.

A student whose account is delinquent is subject to a late fee charge of one percent of the delinquent amount. Students may be barred from classes and the dining hall or disenrolled. A student must pay in full the charges for any semester before he/she is allowed to register for the subsequent semester. Any student leaving Harvey Mudd with an unpaid financial obligation cannot be given a transcript of grades until settlement is made.
