Next Steps

We’re committed to helping you through the following steps leading up to move-in day and the start of spring or fall semester classes. We can’t wait to see you here on campus! Pay careful attention to the instructions in each section below. The links direct you to the appropriate place where you will find additional forms or directions. In each section, there is an office and a phone number to call if you have questions.

Enrollment Deposit

The $150 deposit is required to secure your spot in the incoming class and enables you to get a housing assignment and register for courses. This deposit is fully refundable until May 1, 2018 for students starting in the Fall 2018 semester and will appear as a credit on your bill. By submitting your deposit, you will also have priority in your housing assignment, since we make room assignments based on the date of your deposit. We are expecting a full campus, so don’t delay!

Pay your deposit online via credit or debit card

Housing

Our residence life program provides a safe and supportive community that encourages academic, spiritual, and emotional growth – and is a lot of fun! Once you have paid your enrollment deposit, submit your housing form online. This will help us get to know you better and will assist us as we make room and roommate assignments. Students who are enrolled full-time are required to live in college housing unless they are 21 or older, have senior status with good class standing, are married, or live with a parent or legal guardian.

On-Campus Parking

All Montreat College students must complete a vehicle registration form and indicate if they’ll have a car on campus. When completing the form, students who wish to have a car on campus can select a gold or blue parking permit. The gold permit costs $250/year and allows students to park in designated parking spaces on the main Montreat campus. For $150/year, students can choose a blue parking permit and park at the Black Mountain campus and take a shuttle to and from campus. From August 15 to May 15 on Monday-Friday from 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m., students must park in the parking areas that correspond to their parking permit. These can be found on the parking map.

We are ready to help you select your first semester courses! For students starting in the Fall 2018 semester, we will offer 3 advising & registration days – April 21, May 18, and June 22 – and invite you to select the one that works best with your schedule. During your time on campus, you’ll meet with a faculty member from your area of interest who will help you identify the best course selection. At the advising & registration days, you’ll also have an opportunity to learn more about your financial aid and student account and get your questions answered.

Financial Aid

We work with each and every student to create a personalized financial aid package that puts a Montreat College education within reach. Our financial aid policies consider merit, need, and other abilities—matching financial aid packages to your personal situation. There are several steps involved in applying for and receiving financial aid, so please pay careful attention to the steps outlined below.

If you are enrolling in the Fall 2018 semester, you need to complete the 18-19 FAFSA. You can get the process started at www.fafsa.gov.

Once you have received a financial aid award letter, please use our financial aid portal to complete the steps in the process, including accepting your financial aid awards and accessing loan options. On the home page of the portal, follow the instructions for First Time Users.

Student Account

We’re committed to helping you work through your educational investment at Montreat College. In order for you to receive an accurate and up-to-date bill, it’s important that you complete the financial aid process in its entirety so that all financial aid (scholarships, grant, and loans) can be credited to your student bill. Your bill must be paid in full before you can move into the dorms and begin classes.

Make Online Payment

Did you know that you can enroll in a payment plan even before you receive your official bill? We offer 6, 5 and 4 month semester payment plans. In order to keep your monthly payment amount as low as possible, it is recommended that you enroll in a 6 month plan by May 1. After receiving your financial aid award letter, you can estimate your monthly payment using the following calculation:

Total charges minus aid offered = Remaining balance
Your remaining balance divided by 6 (or 5 or 4) months = your monthly amount.

While there is an initial set-up fee of $50, there is no fee to adjust your monthly payment amount once you get your bill. All plans must be paid in full by Oct 1 of fall semester and April 1 of spring semester.

Schedule of fall semester plan payments:

  • 6-month plans begin May 1
  • 5-month plans begin June 1
  • 4-month plans begin July 1
  • 3-month plans begin August 1

Schedule of spring semester plan payments:

  • 6-month plans begin November 1
  • 5-month plans begin December 1
  • 4-month plans begin January 1
