About Your Bill
Smith College's billing system is CASHNet. In CASHNet, students are able to access their monthly statements, make a payment, sign up for a payment plan, and view activity related to their account. Students access their CASHNet account via Workday.
For information on how to use CASHNet, students will find step-by-step articles and video tutorials in the Student Billing and Payment category of the Workday Help Center. We suggest starting with the article: Accessing CASHNet & CASHNet Overview.
Students can grant other individuals, called payers in CASHNet, limited access to their CASHNet account to view account activity and transactions, as well as make payments to the student’s outstanding balance. Students should review the article: Grant Access to Your CASHNet Account in the Help Center for information on how to provide this access. Please note that only students with Smith credentials may access the Help Center.
If you have been granted access to a student’s CASHNet account, you will receive an email with details on how to access CASHNet. Please follow the instructions in the email. Once you have set up your CASHNet access, you can login to CASHNet.
Billing & Payment Dates
Late fees are assessed at the rate of 1.25 percent per month on overdue balances. Students with overdue balances face other administrative consequences as well, such as class registration holds, being prevented from participation in independent study abroad or other off-campus programs, and transcript or diploma holds.
If you cannot pay your balance due by the deadline, please contact us so that we can work with you to find a resolution, and possibly prevent late fees from accruing on your account.
