Payment Options & Due Dates

Bradley expects payment arrangements to be completed prior to the start of each academic term. For the fall and spring semesters, by paying the full balance due on or before August 1, 2014 and January 9, 2015 respectively you avoid additional payment plan fees. Pay-in-full is your most economical option. However, for the regular semesters the university also offers longer-term payment options through the Deferred Payment Plan and Monthly Installment Payment Plan.    

Payments for the interim (January and May) or summer terms are due no later than 3:00 PM on the first day of the respective term(s). There are no payment plan or longer-term payment options available for the interim and summer sessions. 

Payment Type Options

Payments for all charges on the billing account (tuition, fees, room & board) can be made by cash or check in person at Swords Hall-First Floor. Payments can be made via checks mailed to:

Deferred Payment Plan - DPP

This plan divides each semesters' balance into 4 installments. Payment is determined by taking semester charges, subtracting semester financial assistance (not including work study), and dividing the balance by 4. The first payment is required before the start of the semester. A finance charge of 4% will be applied once to the unpaid balance each term. Remaining Fall payments are due in October, November, and December; Spring payments in March, April, and May. There is no application required.

No interest is charged, but an annual, non-refundable application fee of $135 is required. You must apply each year to participate in the MIPP program.

Claiming Classes

For every period of enrollment students must confirm their intentions to matriculate by taking an action called "Claiming Classes". Classes are claimed in one of two ways: By making a payment on the balance due for each period of enrollment or, if there is no balance due (zero balance or pending refund), by completing the steps outlined on your MyBU account.
