Payment Information

All student payments should be remitted to:

University of Massachusetts Boston
Bursar's Office
100 Morrissey Blvd.
Boston, MA 02125-3300

* Please include the student ID number on checks, money orders, bank checks and any third party payments.


e-Bills are issued monthly to any student with a balance. Payment must be made by the due date on the bill to avoid late fees ($70 late payment fee will be applied to past due invoice per school term).


(The Bursar's Office will only accept checks, cashier's checks, or money orders drawn on a U.S. bank in U.S. currency, and we do not accept payment over the phone.)

Payment options include check, money order, and cashier's check. Please be sure to put your student account id number on the check for proper posting.

  • Check, money order, and cashier's check payments may be made by mail 

In addition to the above payment options, the University of Massachusetts Boston works with an external vendor ©Flywire, to process e-check and online credit card payments (MasterCard, VISA, Discover, or American Express cards are accepted) This service is available online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A non-refundable convenience fee will be assessed for each credit card or debit card transaction. Go to Online Payments for details.

Your bank's online bill payment service:

  • Any automated bill payment service through your personal bank directing bank to send a check to our office should include your first and last names with the 8-digit university ID number.  
  • Allow 7 to 14 business days for delivery to the university and posted onto your WISER account. 
  • Use of personal banking "online bill payment" services may delay payment of your account and may result in late fees or enrollment consequences.  Please plan the timing of your payments accordingly.

Third Party Payment

For third party awards, billing and eligible tuition credits (originals only), all paperwork must be submitted to the Bursar's office by the due date of the original bill. Students may subtract the amount of their award and must pay their portion by the due date of the original bill. Late fees will be assessed if tuition credits or third party paperwork are filed late. It is the student's responsibility to communicate with their third party if payment is not received within 30 days and it is the student who will be responsible for any balance not covered by their third party.

**A returned check or rejected e-check will result in a $30 fee. All payments are subject to verification, which could delay the removal of an administrative hold.  Please arrange your payment accordingly. Call the office if you have questions.

Nonpayment will result in an administrative hold being placed on a student account which will prevent a student from:

  1. registering for a subsequent semester
  2. getting grades
  3. graduating
  4. getting transcripts

Additionally, nonpayment is also subject to a $70 late payment fee per school term.

Important: Bills unpaid for 3 months after the end of the semester for which they are due will be sent to collections. Accounts in collection are assessed a 25% collection fee.

Monthly Payment Plan          

The Bursar's Office offers a monthly payment plan for current semesters through Flywire. This is an interest-free way of paying tuition in equal monthly payments with a one-time non-refundable enrollment fee per semester.  This non-refundable fee is charged by Flywire at time of enrollment.

The benefits of the monthly payment plan:

  • More time to pay.
  • Avoid high interest rates.
  • Create smaller, more manageable payments.
  • Reduce the amount you need to borrow.

Important notes:

*Failure to enroll by the due date on the e-bill will result in a late fee and an administrative hold being placed on your WISER account.

*Payments are auto-debited monthly.

*Payments are due on  the 15th business day of each month.

*Payments made after these dates may lead to removal from the payment plan which is subject to late payment fees and an administrative hold being placed on your WISER account.

*You will not receive invoices (e-Bills). Please refer to Account Activity to view payments, remaining balance, or print Term Statement if necessary.

*Third party payments cannot be used as a monthly payment while on the payment plan.  However, a third party payment would reduce your overall balance, creating a smaller monthly payment.

To enroll our monthly payment plan, login to the WISER self-services account then go to "Student Financial Center" and select "Payment options" to use ©Flywire service.  Please reach out to with any questions or concerns.
