Payment Options

There are four ways to pay your student bill:

1. eBill

Tufts eBill is the preferred method of payment for student bills. Please see My Bill for more information on logging into eBill and setting up authorized bill payers. You can make payments electronically from a savings or checking account through the Tufts eBill system. Payments made through eBill will appear on your student account in the Student Information System (SIS) in real time.

How to Read Your eBill

2. Check Payment

If you are unable to pay through eBill, you may send checks directly to one of the addresses below. All checks must be payable in U.S dollars to the Trustees of Tufts College and must be payable through a U.S. bank. We will not accept any postdated checks.

If you have the payment coupon from your eBill, mail your check with the payment coupon (no Federal Express) to:

Tufts University   
Office of the Bursar
P.O. Box 3475
Boston, MA 02241-3475

If you do not have the payment coupon from your eBill, mail your check with the  student’s ID and name to:

Tufts University

Returned payments are subject to a $25 fine. Subsequent returned payments will be fined $50 each. 

3. Monthly Payment Plan

The Tuition Payment Plan offered by Higher One allows you to pay tuition in monthly installments instead of one lump sum. There are five monthly payments per semester.  

  • The payment plan is interest-free, but Higher One charges a small application fee

  • The first monthly installment for the academic year typically begins May 15

Tuition Refund Plan through A.W.G Dewar, Inc.

The Tuition Refund Plan offered by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. was originated in 1930 to protect the financial investment of students and parents in education. Today, over 1200 leading independent schools and colleges throughout North America offer the Plan. Because the cost of education today is a substantial investment, one which is likely to be your second largest next to a home purchase, the protection afforded by the Tuition Refund Plan is essential.

While most colleges provide partial refunds for withdrawals, they are limited and usually effective only when you withdraw early in the term. Subject to the program terms and conditions, this Plan offers the unique benefit of a 70% refund of term tuition and fees when you are forced to withdraw for medical reasons. The Tuition Refund Plan dramatically enhances the college refund schedule and provides more generous refunds throughout the entire term. For complete details about the Tuition Refund Plan, please go to the A.W.G. Dewar Inc. website.
