Deposits, Methods of Payment and Deadlines
After you inform us of your intention to matriculate at BU Law, you will receive from an e-mail requesting a $500.00 deposit to reserve your place in the incoming class. The deposit is non-refundable and will be credited towards your tuition in the fall. Please submit the deposit and accompanying Graduate Student Deposit Voucher by the date specified in the e-mail.
Payment deadlines may be found at the Student Accounting Services website.
For your convenience, you can make a payment using a U.S. bank account online at Student Link. Select Money Matters, then Student Account Inquiry, and click on the Make a Payment link.
You can also grant access to parents, legal guardian, or other third parties to make payments on your student account. You may log on to the Student Link at www.bu.edu/studentlink, select “Personal,” and click on the “ShareLink Access” link.
If you are a ShareLink viewer, you may log on to ShareLink at https://www.bu.edu/link/shortcut/sharelink.
If you do not have access to the StudentLink or ShareLink, payments can be made at http://www.bu.edu/payment.
Make checks payable to Boston University
- Checks, traveler's checks, and money orders must be payable in U.S. dollars only
- Include the student's name and identification number on the check
- Postdated checks cannot be accepted
We encourage you to mail all payments to the PO box listed on your invoice. If you choose to send payments by over-night delivery service, please use the following address:
Student Accounting Services
881 Commonwealth Avenue
Boston, MA 02215-1390
Overnight delivery to any other address, including the PO box listed on your invoice, will delay receipt of your payment.
Credit Card Payment (Part-time Students Only)
If you are a part-time student, you can make payment by MasterCard, VISA, American Express, Discover, Diners Club International, JCB, or China Union Pay online at Student Link. Select Money Matters, then Student Account Inquiry, and click on the Make a Payment link.
If you do not have access to the StudentLink, your payment can be made at http://www.bu.edu/payment.
International Payments & Wire Transfers
You can make payment from a bank account outside the U.S. through peerTransfer or Western Union Business Solutions. These vendors both provide a tailored interface for international payments to BU. Use of either of these services will generally result in a lower exchange rate and/or total transaction cost for the student than payment by bank wire. In addition since the information collected from the student through these vendor interfaces, including the student’s BU account number, is transmitted electronically to BU along with payment, use of either of these vendors will allow for faster crediting of payments to the correct student account.
Links to each of these vendors’ web pages are below for more information about the services they provide.
Traditional bank wire transfers are also accepted. A kerberos ID and password will be required to view the wire transfer information.
Please note: Be sure to include your name and University identification number.
