Tuition Paid by Employers or Other Third Party

In those situations where the tuition is paid directly to the university by a third party, the student must provide the Office of Student Accounts with a purchase order or a written statement of intent to pay by the third party no later than the end of the first week of classes. If there are stipulations associated with the payment agreement, such as a minimum grade level, then the student must either pay the university directly or enroll in one of the payment options. Mail or in-person: Student Account Operations, 354 Richards Hall, 360 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02115 or Fax: 617.373.7607.


Tuition Reimbursement

Many companies, embassies and agencies directly reimburse students for their educational expenses upon successful completion of courses. In these situations, the student is responsible for paying the bill at the beginning of the term or selecting another payment option. Tuition may not be left unpaid pending reimbursement by a third party.
