Please note that we are unable to accept postdated checks. All checks, regardless of date, will be deposited upon receipt.

Send Payments to:

Calvin College Financial Services

Include the Remittance slip with each payment or write the student ID# on the memo line of the check noting -41 for the miscellaneous statement or -01 for the tuition statement. The remittance slip is found at the top of each billing statement.
