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
  • Processing financial aid funds to a student account
  • Refunding credit balances
  • Assisting with payment options
  • Isuing 1098-T tax forms

Important Information:

  • Access real-time account information and make payments via credit card through Self-Service.
  • Health insurance waivers need to be completed once a year; prior to fall clearance or prior to spring if not enrolled for fall. Waivers are processed through the Gallagher Koster website. View the Student Health Insurance webpage for more information. 
  • For all on-site degree 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.
  • Beginning in Spring 2014 Distance Master of Architecture and distance Master of Design Studies students willl be able to register for courses during an online registration period that will be prior to their payment due date.  They will be billed after registration based on the credits in which they are enrolled. Failure to pay in full by the due date will result in a late payment fee and removal from courses for which they are registered.
  • In order to discuss an account with anyone other than the student, we must have a FERPA authorization on file.
