The word bursar is unfamiliar. It is derived from the Latin term for purse and is most commonly defined as an official in charge of funds at a college or university. The BAC Bursar's Office staff is dedicated to providing exceptional customer service to students and their families regarding all student financial accounts.

Department responsibilities include:

  • Issuing billing statements
  • Collecting tuition and fees

  • For all on-site degree students and Distance Master of Architecture students, bills are issued each semester, are preliminary and due by the specified clearance date. The student account must be clear inorder to be eligible to register for the semester. Once registered, the preliminary bill becomes an actual bill and is contingent upon the tuition refund schedule.
  • Distance Master of Design Studies Students are required to pay tuition and fees at the time of online registration. If a student intends to use payment other than credit card, financial aid, cash or check, the payment must be credited to the account prior to registration. Once registered the tuition refund schedule applies.
