Registration is held five to eight weeks prior to the beginning of the term. Students whose accounts are not current may be denied any or all college services. A student may not register, utilize college facilities, or receive transcripts/grade reports, including licensing agencies, until all accounts with the college are cleared. This includes all charges for tuition, fees, residence hall, library, bookstore, or any other college department expense.

The student’s tuition, fees and other charges must be paid in full by the posted due date.

Due date for Spring 2018 semester: Friday, February 9, 2018.

To pay your bill online, log in to your EMPOWERME account.

There are three ways this can be done:

  1. Payment in full by cash, check, money order, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express.
  2. Pending financial aid:  student must submit all of the required forms/documentation needed by the financial aid office.
  3. The Mercy Installment Payment Plan. This plan is by the semester, and payments are divided into four equal installments to be paid throughout the semester (three payments during summer semester). There is a $25.00 application fee for this plan.

Please contact the Business Office for further information about payment options. Changes, such as enrollment, marital status, address, phone number or insurance coverage must be submitted promptly to the admissions/registrar’s office to assure proper billing.

What if I cannot pay all at once or I am still finalizing my financial aid?
If you cannot pay all at once or are still finalizing your financial aid, we do offer an installment payment plan. To sign up for the payment plan, please contact the Business Office once you have received your bill. There is a $25.00 fee to participate in the payment plan, and you will have four payments due on the 9th of February, March, April, and May. All balances MUST be paid in full by the end of the semester.
Can my parents or someone else call or receive information about my bill?
Due to FERPA regulations, we cannot speak to anyone except the student regarding their billing statement.  Students MUST sign a Release of Information form if they wish to allow the Business Office to speak with any person other than the student regarding the financial status of their student account. This form is available in the Registrar’s office.
What happens if I do not pay by the due date?
If you have not paid in full or signed up for the payment plan by February 9, your account will be placed on a “Business Hold.” You may still attend classes and complete the semester, but you will not have access to your grades or transcripts, and you will not be able to register for future semesters. If your account is placed on a Business Hold, please contact the Business Office ASAP to make payment arrangements.

The Business Office hours are Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You may contact the Business Office at 419-251-1726 or 419-251-8980 or via email at or
Can I get a printed estimate of my bill now?
Once you have registered for classes, you can view and print an estimated billing statement. This is available from your EMPOWER ME account under the Student Billing option “Estimated Tuition Worksheet.” This shows your estimated charges as well as financial aid at the time of registration. Please note that this is not your final bill, and may change if you make changes to your class registration and/or financial aid options.
How can I find out about the student insurance plan and charges?
Mercy College offers an excellent and affordable health insurance plan. Enrollment opens each fall semester.  If a student has existing coverage, this coverage can be waived.  More information and a link to complete the online waiver will be available in January.

Students who fail to meet expenses and do not make arrangements with the college for payments by the due date of the semester/term will have their account placed on a business hold. Grades or transcripts will not be released for any student who has outstanding financial obligations to the college.

All students who are enrolled in 6 or more credits will be automatically enrolled in the Mercy College Health Insurance plan each fall.  This is annual coverage through United HealthCare and the premium for undergraduate is $1637.00 per year and the the premium for graduate students is $2240.  Our student coverage is an excellent and affordable plan. More general information regarding the coverage is available in the Business Office. If you need specific coverage information, please contact United HealthCare Customer Service at 1-800-505-4160 or Brooks Insurance Company at 419-254-7305.

If you already have health insurance and wish to waive, please complete the online Health Insurance Waiver form.  This waiver is available on your Empower account.  The link is directly below your billing detail summary.

To complete: click on “access form” and then remember that you will need to click on all three “Update buttons” on the left-hand side of the form. The first update button is your personal information. You may make any changes if necessary and then click next. The second update button is a disclaimer form that asks if you are registered for at least six credit hours. If no – you DO NOT need to complete the rest of the form. If yes, please check the box and click next. The final update button is for your health insurance information. Please answer the questions and type your name to decline coverage. Make sure that you click next, and then hit the submit button at the bottom. This will submit your waiver and the charges will be removed from your student account within 5 business days.
