Annual college Fee is collected in two terms or installments. Each term fee must be paid in full and in advance, ahead of the announced term and ahead of each semester, in single installments. College fees can be paid online through the IRP (payment gateway charges vary for different modes) and by card or cash, at the fee counters on campus. All receipts are generated through the IRP irrespective of how the payment is made. The College charges LATE FEE for fee payment after the specified due date. If the student/parent so desires, the second-term fee of the same academic year can be paid along with the first-term fee. Beyond that, there is no provision to pay College Fee for the subsequent academic year(s) in advance. A student who does not pay the term fee even after the last date for payment with late fee may be considered as having withdrawn from the specific undergraduate programme in order to prevent further accrual of fee dues in the student’s account. Consequently, such students may not be included in subsequent lists of current students submitted to the University. No-Due Certificates will be issued only after all dues already accrued are cleared by the student.
St. Mary’s College is a self-financed institution, which does not receive any aid from the government or any other body. The college is fully funded by the fees paid by the students. Hence, it is important to note that a student joining St Mary’s College is doing so voluntarily and in full acceptance of the institution’s fee policy.
