How to Pay

Boston University offers a variety of payment options for those attending the Academic Immersion program. You will need your Boston University ID number to submit payment. We will email you your BU ID number within two weeks of our receipt of your Letter of Intent. Please note: international students are also required to submit their Immunization Record Form before they can be registered for the program and receive a BU ID number.

Electronic Payment

Payment by Check

If you are not able to complete payment online or prefer to pay by check, make the check out to “Boston University.” Please write the student’s name, BU ID number, and “AIM” in the memo line and mail to:

International Payment

You can make payment to Boston University from a bank account outside the U.S. using services provided by Flywire 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 low exchange rate and/or total transaction cost. And, since the information collected through these vendor interfaces, including the student's BU identification number, is transmitted electronically to BU along with your payment, use of either of these vendors will allow for quick crediting of payments to your student account.

Following are links to these vendors’ web pages:

Note: application fees are non-refundable. No refund or reduction in the total charge will be made for a student who arrives to the program late, leaves the program early, or is dismissed from the program due to a violation of the program guidelines.
