We strongly discourage you from carrying large amounts of cash to pay your bill. However, should you decide to make a cash payment, please be certain to retain your receipt.

Traveler's Checks

If you plan on paying in person, traveler's checks are the safest way to do so. Be sure not to countersign your traveler's checks until you make your payment at the Bursar's Office.

Third Party Scholarships

We will be happy to apply advance credit to your account for a scholarship awarded from an outside agency. You must submit a letter to the Bursar's Office from the scholarship source, on their letterhead, stating that the scholarship will be mailed directly to Berklee. The letter must also include the amount of your scholarship, the date when payment will be submitted, a request for a statement (if required by the sponsor), and the name and phone number of a contact person. It is essential for the Bursar's Office to receive this letter prior to your payment due date in order to avoid any delays.

Tuition Payment Plan

Berklee offers a monthly payment plan through Tuition Management Systems (TMS). This option allows you to divide your payment into monthly installments. There are no qualifications to use this service. You do not incur interest while paying off your fees, and there is no credit approval necessary. Berklee will give you advance credit for the total amount to be paid, provided you remain current with your monthly payments.

You should be aware that there is a one-time-only enrollment fee and that the payment plan begins in June. If you sign up for this option after June, you are responsible for making up the total of payments since June in your first installment.

Since this option may be combined with other forms of payment, you should be certain to budget the necessary amount with TMS to meet your needs. If you have under-budgeted, you will be expected to pay the difference directly to the college prior to the beginning of classes.

Berklee reserves the right to revoke this payment option to any student if delinquency becomes an issue.
