How to Add an Authorized User

Authorized users may only be set up by the student. When an authorized user is added, that person has access to your electronic bill but not to any other function of Medaille360. In order to add an authorized user, navigate to the Billing section as described above. Then,

Choose Add Authorized User

The person you add must have a valid email address

There are two access questions that default to “yes”:

We recommend that you leave the default answer to “yes” and then choose Add User

Read the authorization page and enter the last four digits of your student ID number as verification, then click “I agree”

You will receive notification that an authorized user was added and that an email was sent to that person with instructions on how to log in to the account


Semester Payment Plans and How to Enroll

For the fall and spring semesters only, Medaille College offers the option to enroll in a tuition payment plan on a semester basis. Students must re-enroll each new semester.

Payment Plan Enrollment Fee: $40 each semester, due at sign-up

Each semester on a payment plan, five total payments will be due; one payment on the first of each month:

Fall semester payments run from August 1 through December 1

Spring semester payments run from January 1 through May 1

Late payments are subject to a $35 fee.

Alternatively, you may make a payment by calling Student Accounts at (716) 880-2267. In this case, the Student Accounts office will manually apply and record your payment to your plan. If you wish to pay off the payment plan early, you may do so through the Student Accounts office without penalty.


Employer Tuition Reimbursement

If you’re receiving tuition reimbursement from your employer, you are required to provide the Student Accounts office with the terms of the employer’s reimbursement policy. Once the necessary documentation has been received, Student Accounts will recognize the employer’s tuition payment policy and defer receipt of tuition and/or fees accordingly. Future semester deferments are only available to students who fulfill their payment obligations in accordance with the employer reimbursement plan. Failure to do so will result in a $150 late fee assessment to the student’s account.


Electronic Billing Text Alerts

If you wish, you may choose to receive text messages when your electronic tuition bill statements are ready:

Navigate to the Financial Aid & Billing section of Medaille360 for Students

Choose My Profiles

Enter your mobile phone number, select carrier and click “save”

You are now set to receive text alerts, as well as emails, when your new electronic bills are ready for review.


Issues Accessing Your Electronic Tuition Bill

If you are having problems viewing your electronic bill, the issue is usually one of two things:

Pop-up blockers – you will need to allow pop-up windows from Medaille360 to access your electronic bill

Internet Explorer – if you’re using older versions of Internet Explorer, you may not be able to view your electronic bill. Please use Firefox, Chrome or update your browser to the newest version of Internet Explorer

If you’re still having issues viewing your electronic bill statement, please contact the IT Helpdesk at (716) 880-2282.

Refund Policy


Tuition Payment Policy

Tuition and fees are due and payable on or before the first scheduled day of classes each semester. Satisfactory payment arrangements must be established by the first day of class to avoid a $150 late fee. For our Accelerated Program students taking three sequential courses in a semester, balance due after financial aid can be divided by three and paid at the start of each course, or divided by four if taking four courses, to keep your account in good standing.

Please be advised that prior semester balances cannot be carried over to the next semester. A hold will be placed on all accounts not paid by the due date and will prohibit a student from registering for the next semester, receiving grades, transcripts, diploma or books for classes with a resource fee.

When a student registers for classes at Medaille College, it is understood that the student will pay in full all charges assumed on the due date, first day of class. Failure to attend classes does not alter the charges or entitle the student to a tuition refund.


Tuition Liability Schedule

Check the appropriate Academic Catalog corresponding to your year and type of degree (undergraduate or graduate).


Payment Methods

The following methods are valid for paying your electronic tuition billing statement:



Money order

Credit card (Mastercard, Visa, Discover, American Express)

Financial aid (ensure all of your financial aid is in place by the start of school; i.e. TAP, scholarships, grants, loans)

Payment plan

Employer reimbursement

A combination of the above payment methods may be utilized.


Canadian Student Payments

Medaille has partnered with NorthStar Currency so that Canadian students may initiate their US dollar payments online to pay electronically through their Canadian bank. Payment is transferred directly to Medaille with the student information, saving money on bank transfer fees and exchange rates.

Set Up Payment Through NorthStar Currency


Refund Policy

Credit balances on the student account due to excess Title IV Federal Financial Aid funds will be refunded to the student within 14 business days after the student’s account shows a credit balance. Refunds for Parent PLUS loans will be refunded to the parent, unless the parent has noted on the application that credit balance funds should be sent instead to the student.

Medical Waivers: Tuition Waiver Review Committee
A request for a Medical Waiver with no tuition liability, for the current semester, may be requested through the Bursar to the Tuition Waiver Review Committee.  This is conditional on the fact that continued attendance by the student is made impossible by reasons of serious illness which, in the opinion of the committee, are clearly beyond the control of the student.

The student must send an email or letter to the Bursar indicating the courses affected for the current semester and explain the medical condition affecting further participation in the courses, as well as providing a doctor's note to the Bursar, explaining the illness and dates of the illness, stating student is unable to participate in classes.

If the Medical Waiver is approved by the committee, the tuition balance, if any, will be forgiven.  The student will receive W grades for those courses affected.  The student will be notified this is done on a one-time basis.

Failure to attend classes does not alter the charges or entitle the student to a tuition refund.
