Deferred Payment Plans (Part-time Students)

If you are certified as a part-time student, you have the option of settling your account by enrolling in one of two deferred payment plans. These payment plans are administered by Boston University and enrollment is available online. A Kerberos password is easy to set and is required to enroll in the Deferred Payment Plan.

For enrollment in either plan, an initial payment and a completed online promissory note are due by the semester payment deadline listed below. This initial payment includes any prior balance, 25 percent of the current semester tuition, a $50 Deferred Payment Fee, as well as any additional semester fees.
