How to Pay
Tuition and fees must be paid in full by the payment deadline, in order not to incur late fees. Staff at Student Accounting Services are available to answer any questions you might have regarding payment options, and we will do our very best to ensure that your payment process is smooth and convenient.
Boston University accepts the following forms of payment:
- Electronic Payment
- Personal Check, Money Order, Traveler’s Check
- Wire Transfer
- Credit Card Payment (part-time students only)
Students enrolled on a part-time basis may postpone payment of a portion of their tuition until a predetermined date. A minimum down payment and a nonrefundable enrollment fee are required at the time of enrollment.
