About this Department

What We Do

The Bursar’s Office manages the billing and collection of student accounts, provides customer service, and offers financial guidance to students and parents/guardians. Email is the official form for University communications.  The University sends official and important messages to the student's Brown email account.  It is expected that students read these communications to keep informed of their financial responsibilities.  It is important that all new students activate their email accounts as soon as possible and to check their Brown email for important notices.
