Cash payments are accepted in the Bursar's Office at 951 Boylston Street only. Please bring the exact amount as there is no change available. We strongly discourage anyone from carrying large amounts of cash to make payment but if you do please bring a U.S. state ID or government-issued passport for federal reporting purposes.

Financial aid funds include Federal Direct Loans, Federal Grants, Private Alternative Loans, and Scholarships. The Financial Aid Office [3.2 Financial Aid] processes the awarding of all student aid. Once the financial aid funds are certified, these funds will be applied to the student's bill as pending financial aid. The anticipated funds need to be pending on the account to be deducted from the balance due. Please allow enough time in applying for financial aid to meet payment deadlines.

Tuition payment plans are available for degree students. To activate a payment plan, please visit the Official Payments enrollment page and follow the prompts to complete your enrollment. Please note that plans must be set up and current to be considered active by the payment due date.

The BAC will bill a sponsor, government organization, or employer for all or part of your tuition and fees. You must submit a purchase order and/or sponsorship letter prior to the semester's payment deadline. The purchase order should include the organization's billing information, the student it plans to sponsor, for what semester and/or specific courses, and for the exact dollar amount they will pay. Payment must be submitted directly to the BAC and is due within 30 days of the invoice date. Please note that third party sponsorship cannot be contingent upon the receipt of grades. If the sponsorship eligibility changes and payment is not made you are ultimately responsible for any outstanding balance. Please contact the Bursar's Office with any questions.
