Student Accounts


December 2016

Dear Dickinson Students and Families,

In preparation for the IRS required change in the reporting method for the tuition statement 1098T which was to take effect January 1, 2017; Dickinson College implemented a change to invoicing for the spring semester. The spring 2017 semester tuition and fees will be invoiced January 5, 2017 with a due date of January 27, 2017. This change will align the tuition and fees charged with the payments received, including financial aid, for the spring semester within the same tax year.

In early December, the IRS decided to delay this required change in reporting methods until January 1, 2018. At that time, Dickinson was already committed to the change in our billing for the spring semester tuition and fees on January 5, 2017 with a due date of January 27, 2017.

Your tax year 2016 1098T tuition statement will reflect charges for tuition and related expenses, scholarships and grants or any adjustments to either of those categories.

Please consult a tax advisor with regard to filing for the American Opportunity Act or Lifetime Learning Credit reported using the tax form 8863 or the tuition and fees deduction reported using the tax form 8917. You can also visit for additional tax benefits for education information.



Welcome to the Student Accounts Office of the Finance & Administration Division. Please navigate the menu links listed below to learn more about services offered and find important information related to your student's account. Students with access to the Dickinson Gateway  can view their monthly invoice for tuition, fees and miscellaneous charges. With this resource, students can print the invoice or send it as a PDF file attachment by email to anyone. Students can check out the e-Billing channel on the Gateway for more information regarding their account and e-bill.

The Student Accounts Office is promoting paperless billing and therefore ask that students set up a Proxy to view and pay their student account bills online.  Students have had the ability to view and pay bills online, as well as review financial-aid information and academic records, and now they have the ability to assign Proxy Access to a parent/guardian of their choosing.  That access may allow the proxy to view the student's academic records, monthly invoices and financial aid awards along with the ability to make a real-time payment on the student's account.  Visit Proxy Access to learn more and complete the process today.

Once a Proxy account has been established, access to your student's financial information is available 24/7.  For future logins, please use this Direct Proxy Login link for easy access.  Please have your email address and PIN number available.

If you have questions or concerns regarding proxy access, please email  or dial 717-245-1953.

You can reach members of the student accounts team at 717-245-1953 or

We value our relationship with our families and would appreciate your feedback regarding the service you received.  If you would take a few moments to complete our customer survey, it would be greatly appreciated.
