The Office of Student Accounts will assist you with student account billing and payments. Your student account refers to your financial account here at The Sage Colleges. The Sage Colleges utilizes an online billing system to provide your student account information. Students can use Sage Advisor to connect to the Student Account Payment Center where they can view their statements, pay their bills, set up a payment plan, and select a refunding preference.
Students will receive email notifications of their student statements. Students can authorize other users to be able to login and view their statements and make payments as well.

All student balances must be paid in full by the specified Payment Due Dates unless the student has been awarded financial aid sufficient to cover the outstanding balance or is enrolled in the College’s payment plan. Students will be permitted to attend classes and utilize College facilities only after they have settled their financial obligations to the College. Any subsequent modification to an expected amount of financial aid or student loan remains the full responsibility of the student and must be paid in full by the student.
In addition to following application and verification procedures for financial aid, the student’s eligibility must be confirmed and the student must accept offered awards electronically through MySageAid before those amounts can be applied as payment against tuition and fees. Please note that loan programs require an extended period of processing before the loan amount is credited to the student’s account.
Failure to fully pay the student’s liability or make alternative arrangements with Student Accounts may result in the removal of registration from any or all classes and prevent access to Student Housing. In addition, an unpaid financial obligation to the College will result in the withholding of the student’s grades, transcript of credits, diploma, and official reports and make the student ineligible for future financial aid awards, pre-registration, and resident room selections.
