Tuition and Fees 2016-2017

Hampden-Sydney College publishes the current semester's billing statements online. The fall billing statements are published monthly beginning in July with a due date of August 1st.  The spring billing statements are published monthly beginning in December with a due date of January 1st.  The electronic bills are available to all students via TigerWeb/CASHNET. Students are able to authorize their parents/guardians/third parties to have access to the account by logging into CASHNET via TigerWeb and adding a parent PIN.  With this authorization, parents will receive an email with a link to their login site and their own login credentials.  Being able to login independently of their student with this site, parents may view account activity, view billing statements, receive emails indicating new billing statements are published, sign up for text notifications, and process payments online.

Payment Methods
