Payment Deadlines

We encourage students to register early to ensure that your bill is available on the StudentLink in a timely manner. Students MUST submit full payment and/or documentation for settlement by close of business (5 p.m. EDT) on the day of the deadline as late fees and other penalties may apply. All students assigned to on-campus University housing must make payment and settle their student accounts before they will be allowed to pick up their residence keys, move into their assigned residence, or be allowed access into on-campus residences. If you have any concerns or questions regarding your payment deadline, please contact us as soon as possible at 617-353-2264 or studenta@bu.edu.
