Details on when bills are due for Winter and Summer classes will be included with the course information. Details on when the balances are due for the Summer Travel Abroad Programs are included in the trip application.
The SFS Office may consider waiving the late fee only if the balance is resolved shortly after the fee is charged.
If students or parents have any questions, please call University Health Plans at 800-437-6448 or the SFS office at 978-921-4242 ext 1174. After the waiver is completed, the College will be notified and take the fee off the billing statement within a business day. If this is not completed on time, students risk forfeiting their right to waive the fee.
If students have comparable coverage and want to waive the insurance fee, they will need to complete a waiver every academic year by the bill due date.
Because transfer students may not be enrolled in Foundation courses, they may waive the kit by completing an online form. It’s recommended that transfer students check in with the Registrar and/or Bursar before submitting the kit waiver.

Montserrat College of Art makes the 1098 T form available to students by January 31 annually. Students can select to have the form mailed to their house or retrieve it online. If a student is having trouble accessing their form, they can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Box 2 – (Tax years 2003 to 2017) indicates any qualified tuition or related expenses billed to the student by the educational institution.

Box 3 – If checked, this indicates that the reporting method (Amounts Billed or Payments Received) has changed from the prior year.
Box 4 – Indicates any reductions to eligible expenses reported for any prior year since 2003.
Box 5 – Indicates the amount of scholarships and grants processed for the calendar year that are applicable to qualified expenses.

Qualified* expenses are tuition and certain related expenses required for enrollment or attendance. Expenses that do not qualify include, room and board, transportation, insurance, sports, games, and any noncredit courses.
Because the 1098 T Form does not include how much a student was charged for qualified expenses, the SFS Office recommends that students and their families take their 1098 T form and a copy of the student statement to a tax advisor. Students can retrieve their statements on Campus Cafe.
