Prior to enrollment, a student is expected to pay the tuition for the semester in full by the specified deadline, unless participating in the monthly payment plan. The monthly payment plan, which entails a service fee per semester, is available to all students through the university's student account office. A student using the monthly payment plan is expected to pay all outstanding prior balances in full and at least one quarter of the current semester's bill. Students who fail to make their monthly payments on time may not receive this option in the future. No student is permitted to register for a semester until all amounts due from previous semester's bills have been paid in full. Financial support in an academic year may not be used to cover a balance from a previous year.

In accordance with the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, HGSE will not charge late fees, prevent a student from attending classes, or require payment of funds expected to be covered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for up to 90 days after beginning of the semester. Students are responsible for any fees charged to their student accounts that exceed the amount of tuition and fees paid by the VA. HGSE may require students to provide documentation to ensure eligibility for GI Bill benefits.

Harvard University students are billed electronically. Instead of a monthly paper bill, students receive monthly web links via email that allow them to view their student bills online and make payments electronically. Payments can be made either electronically or by cheque. Credit card payments are not accepted. Students who need a paper copy of their invoice can print a PDF copy.

If an e-payment or check is returned by the bank, a $25 return fee will be charged to the student's account. Multiple repayments may result in the University requesting future payments by notarized paper or cashier's check. Please note that it may take a week or more for a bank to notify the University that a payment has been returned. Refunds will not appear on student accounts until the bank has received the relevant information.

Students should be aware that diplomas are withheld until all debts owed to the University are paid in full. In addition, the school may withhold some services from students or alumni with outstanding debts to the university.
