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 Office of Student Accounts.

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 Office of Student Accounts 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 Office of Student Accounts to receive this letter prior to your payment due date in order to avoid any delays.

Tuition Payment Plan

As a courtesy to our degree students, we offer a flexible payment plan fall and spring semesters through our partner Nelnet Campus Commerce (Nelnet). This plan allows students and families to pay their tuition and fees in smaller installments. The plan requires a $40 enrollment fee and a deposit of one-third of the payment plan balance upon enrollment as well as automatic payments for subsequent installments.

To enroll, please log in to your student account and select the Monthly Tuition Payment Plan link under the Financial Information side menu in Student Finance on Self-Service. First, you will create a Nelnet account. Then, you will select Set Up a Payment Plan. If a family member or sponsor is paying on your behalf, you can select Add an Authorized Party, and your payer will receive an invitation to create a Nelnet account. Learn more about the Nelnet payment plan.
