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

Since 1990, Berklee has contracted with the company Tuition Management Systems (TMS) to provide students and parents with an interest-free payment plan option. TMS allows students to pay for the cost of a school year (excluding health and accident insurance, the laptop purchase, and summer charges) over two five-month periods as opposed to making payment in full at the start of each semester. Please know that there is a per-term fee of $60 to sign up with TMS.

For the fall semester, students must sign up for TMS no later than June 1. For the spring semester, students must sign up by November 1. Failure to meet these deadlines will result in the student owing one or more up-front payments at the time of signing up for TMS. The payment plan is not available for the summer semester.

To sign up for TMS, please visit Additionally, students may contact the Office of the Bursar, located on the second floor of the 921 Boylston Street building, for more information. The Office of the Bursar may also be reached via email at or via phone at 617 747-2610.
