New students should check with the Financial Aid Office before deducting scholarships. Please complete the Student Account Worksheet and fax to 717-291-4370 or e-mail to email@example.com. Upon request, overpayments will be refunded approximately January 25, 2013.
The final date for payment of this invoice is January 7, 2013. A late fee of $500.00 will be charged if the bill is not paid by this date.

More information regarding payment options is provided on the e-bill page.
Each student account has been charged a health service fee of $50.00, which entitles the student to the use of Appel Health Services as needed. The fee, which is charged each semester, covers all outpatient visits, medications stocked for acute illness, and use of the Cold Center. (The costs of blood tests, x-rays, off-campus consultations, and emergency room visits are billed to the student or the student's insurance.) This fee is mandatory for all students.
All full time students at Franklin & Marshall are required to be covered by health insurance. Families should review their current policies to determine that coverage is in effect while the student is away at College, particularly if the student is covered under Health Maintenance Insurance /HMO. Coverage should include athletic injuries if the student elects to participate in varsity, club, or intramural sports.
All students will receive a mailing from Hulse QM Services, Inc., (Franklin & Marshall's health plan administrator). This mailing will provide detailed information regarding the purchase or waiver of the accident and sickness insurance plan. Each student MUST RESPOND to this mailing by the specified deadlines. If you have questions regarding health care coverage, please call QM Services, Inc., at 800-433-2042.
