Payment Deadlines

Charges for tuition and fees will appear on your student account as soon you register for classes. These charges will remain, and you will be responsible for payment, unless you officially withdraw or drop your course(s) by the published deadlines.

Boston University Summer Term requires payment of all tuition, fee, room, and dining charges by the session payment deadlines stated below. If your payment is received after the session deadline, a late payment fee will be accessed.

Summer Session Payment Deadlines

Session 1 & 12-week session Session 2
May 22, 2018 July 2, 2018

Late Fees

A late payment fee will be assessed to your student account if your Summer Session payment or receipt of settlement documentation is received after the session payment deadline. A minimum late payment fee of $75 is assessed beginning May 23, 2018, for the first session and 12-week courses, and July 3, 2018, for the second session. The late payment fee will increase throughout each academic session to a maximum of $300 for payments received as of July 29, 2018, for Session 1 and the 12-week courses, and August 10, 2018, for Session 2.

Student Account Holds

If your student account remains unpaid after the session has begun, a comptroller hold may be placed on your record to restrict access to University services, including but not limited to registration for future semesters and release of grades, transcripts, and/or diplomas. Release of academic records and use of University services will be reinstated when payment is made.
