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.

Payment & Privacy Policies

Review the Benedictine College payment policies listed below, and privacy policies at www.benedictine.edu/FERPA. Logging into your RavenZone account confirms that you accept the policies.

Payment Policy

Students attending Benedictine College are expected to make arrangements to meet their financial responsibilities by stated deadlines and prior to attending classes. If payment is being made with the assistance of financial aid, all documents must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office as soon as possible and aid should be secured by the tuition due date to avoid a Business Office Hold and late fees.

All balances MUST be paid in full or a payment plan set up and the $55 payment plan application fee paid by the following dates. Login to the student’s RavenZone account, select “View and Pay My Account”, which takes the student to the secure TouchNet website, then select “View Account Activity” or “Make a Payment" to pay your balance.

  • For Fall terms - August 1
  • For Spring terms- January 2
  • For Summer terms - May 20 (due to the condensed timeframe, payment plans are not available)

Benedictine College reserves the right to assess the below stated late fees monthly on all unpaid balances as of the 25th of each month. Emails will be sent the 10th of each month if a student has an outstanding balance. Students should review tuition account activity, accessible through the student’s RavenZone login, and then click “View and Pay Account.”

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the student’s  financial information at Benedictine College is private, and college staff can discuss detailed financial information only with the student once the student arrives on campus.  The student has the option of giving permission to Benedictine College (Financial Aid and Business Offices) to speak to others regarding the student’s financial situation, such as parents, grandparents, guardians, or anyone who helps the student understand his/her financial situation at Benedictine College.  The student needs to enroll these individuals as Authorized Users in TouchNet.  See the document on this page titled “How to access RavenZone Student Billing”, and in that document please refer to the section, “How to Create an Authorized User” for the steps.

Collection Policy

The Benedictine Community asks for your attention to due dates and your prompt payment toward student accounts.

Benedictine College reserves the right to assess and add to the student's account monthly late charges, interest charges, administrative charges, collection costs, attorney fees and any other costs associated with or which accrue toward the collection of a student or payment plan account.  Delinquent accounts may also be referred to collection agencies chosen by Benedictine College and notification may also be given to credit bureau agencies.

Payments for International Students

All students attending Benedictine College are expected to make arrangements to meet their financial responsibilities by stated deadlines and prior to attending classes.
