Holy Cross offers a variety of payment options to accommodate many family budgets, including annual, semi-annual, 10-, 11-, or 12- month plans and enables families to pay via mail, web, phone, or electronic bill pay. Also, several different methods of payment, such as paper check, electronic check, debit card and wire transfer are accepted. Online access to student accounts is also available.

At the time a student enrolls, a non-refundable registration payment of $400 is paid directly to the school and the parent/guardian responsible for tuition enrolls in a suitable payment plan.
