Student Billing

Welcome to the Benedictine College Student Billing Office!  We are responsible for student billing, oversight of payment plans, student loan refunds or overpayments, and collections of Perkins loan accounts once a student graduates or leaves school. Student Billing works closely with students and families to manage the students’ financial obligations as well as the college’s fiscal stewardship in a responsible and respectful manner.
