Undergraduate Day School Payment Policies


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Outstanding indebtedness to the college will result in a financial hold being placed on a student's account. This suspends the right of a student to register, make a housing deposit, receive a degree, grade reports, transcript, or letter of recommendation.

It is very important that all outstanding balances on a student's account be paid in full at the beginning of each semester to avoid being put on financial hold.

An outstanding balance represents the amount not covered by a TMS budget contract, authorized Financial Aid, outside loans approved by the lender & certified by Providence College, or any Outside Scholarship or 3rd Party payment for which the Bursar's office has received an award letter. 

Late Payments and Financial Holds

  • $100 late fee will be charged for payments received after published due date.
  • A student's account will be placed on a financial hold for outstanding balances not paid by the published due date. Students on a financial hold will be prevented from registering for classes, making a housing deposit, receiving grade reports, transcripts, letters of recommendation, or a degree.
  • For all personal checks over $500 received within 10 days of registration for the following semester, the account will remain on financial hold for 7 days pending clearance of funds by the bank.
  • Holds will be removed immediately with payment of a certified or bank check, money order, or wire transfer.

Refunds of Overpayments

  • If a student has a credit balance on their account, they can request a refund of overpayments by contacting the Bursar's office by emailing us at  Please include: student name, Banner ID, amount being requested, where to send check (if not to be picked up in Harkins Hall)
  • Refunds for the current semester may be requested once a student's aid has been disbursed to their account and a credit balance exists.  Please note that most financial aid is not posted until after the course schedule adjustment period in order to confirm a student's full-time status and eligibility for financial aid.
  • Please check your account on Cyberfriar before requesting your refund to confirm your aid has been disbursed.
  • Once a refund is requested, checks will be available approximately two weeks from the receipt of the request.
  • Please note requested refund amounts based on financial aid are subject to adjustment based on review and approval by the Financial Aid office.
