Student Account Bills
Tuition is billed twice annually, and other incidental student account charges are billed as incurred. Electronic bills are accessible through DA Info parent profiles. For instructions on how to access your billing statements, please refer to these instructions. DA Info accounts for parents of new students will be created in July.
Check payments should be mailed to Trustees of Deerfield Academy, DEPT CHI17051, Palatine, IL 60055-7051 or this office directly at Finance Office, PO Box 87, Deerfield, MA 01342.
All checks must be drawn on an United States Bank and be in US Dollars.
The Finance Office does not accept post-dated checks. Checks will be deposited upon receipt. The Academy is not responsible for any bank fees associated with a check that is deposited to our account. Checks that are returned by banks for insufficient funds must be redeemed at the Finance Office before any more checks will be accepted. A $10 penalty fee will be charged for the first returned check, $20 for the second, and $30 for the third. After three returned checks, the Academy will not accept any more checks from that student for the remainder of the school year.
Payment can be made online via ACH/echeck or credit card through our Diamond Mind Payment Portal. Credit card fees may apply.
For wire transfer instructions from a US bank account, please contact the Finance Office at email@example.com.
Convenient foreign currency payments can be made through PayMyTuition. PayMyTuition allows international families to make payments in their local currency from any bank at low exchange rates. For more information, click here.

Your Billing Rights
Federal law requires us to advise you in case of errors or questions on your bill. If you think your bill is wrong, or if you need more information about a transaction on your bill, write to Deerfield Academy, Treasurer’s Office, P.O. Box 87, Deerfield, MA 01342-0087, as soon as possible. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we send you the first bill on which the error or problem appeared. You can telephone, but doing so will not preserve your rights. In your letter, give the following information:
- Your name and account number
- The dollar amount of the error
- A description and explanation of the error
You do not have to pay any amount in question while we are investigating, but you are still obligated to pay the parts of your bill that are not in question; we cannot report you as delinquent or take any action to collect the amount in question.
Students are issued a OneCard at the beginning of each school year. This card is an ID, a key to dorms, and can be used as a debit card for on campus purchases. More information can be found here.
Because this card functions as a key, it is crucial you report the loss or theft of your card immediately through the OneCard portal on DA Info. Please contact the Finance Office or Security for assistance.
Student Checking Accounts
If you would like to establish a personal checking account at a local bank in Greenfield, the Academy Finance Office will help students and parents set up an account. After the initial deposit, you are responsible for maintaining the account. The Finance Office will cash personal checks up to $250, with the exception of those drawn on overseas checks, you must set up a local bank account. The Finance Office also maintains a limited amount of space where international students may keep passports, travelers’ checks, and similar items.
