  1. School bills are due and payable two (2) weeks prior to the first day of classes each semester.
  2. If needed, take advantage of financial aid opportunities. Complete all applications and steps required in a timely manner.
  3. Bethel offers various payment plan options and counseling. See the Payment Options information below to help you make informed decisions that will fit your needs.

Refund Request

When financial aid payments result in an overpayment of a student's account, the student has several options.

  • The overpayment may remain on the student's account indefinitely to be applied to future semester charges.
  • The student may ask to have funds returned to any loan lending sources.
  • The student may request a refund to be issued direct to the student. To request a direct refund, the student must complete a Student Account Refund Request and submit it to the Office of Student Financial Services. Follow the directions here(pdf).
