Manage your Student Account Online
Billing statements are only available electronically; no paper billing statements are produced. Actively enrolled students have access to view, pay, and manage their student account online through Payment.brown.edu. Students are encouraged to grant "Authorized User" access to family members who wish to view and pay their student account. The "Account Activity" page of payment.brown.edu provides real time information about your account balance. The Billing Statement provides a snapshot of your account balance at the time the statement was produced. Through payment.brown.edu, students can setup authorized users, enroll in electronic refund, enroll in the installment payment plan (IPP), make payment, or view 1098-T statements. Once setup, authorized users can enroll in IPP, make payment, or view 1098-T statements (based on the student's preferences).

Student Account Balances
All balances must be paid in a timely manner, by the due date. Refer to Brown's policies regarding Financial Holds and Past Due Balances.
Student Account Charges and Credits
The student account itemizes all charges and/or credits submitted by University departments for the term. Charges that may appear on the students account are Tuition & Fees, Health Insurance, Housing, Dining, Bookstore charges (optional), Library Fines, Pharmacy Fees, Athletics Equipment Fees, and International Program Fees.
Questions about a specific charge should be directed to the office responsible for that charge (housing, dining, bookstore, pharmacy, library, etc). Student Financial Services should be contacted for questions about accessing your account, payment options, late payment charges, and refunds.
Adjusted Balance indicates the student account balance minus expected aid from loans and scholarships.
Authorized Credits represent funds that will be credited as actual payments to the account once a specified date has passed. For example, Brown University is restricted from disbursing Federal funds to a student’s account until the student has officially enrolled for the term, classes have begun, and the student has completed all requirements. Therefore, any Federal funding may appear as an Authorized Credit until the term begins.
Memo Credits temporarily reduce the student account balance owed and represent monies expected, but not yet received. Brown University attempts to acknowledge these sources and will do so for a reasonable period of time. Memo Credits may not be able to transition into Authorized Credits for various reasons. For example, a payer of any outside scholarship assistance on behalf of the student may not have sent in these proceeds, or a student may not have completed loan documents with the Loan Office; these must be completed before the student is entitled to a loan disbursement. If in doubt, the student may review their records in Banner Self Service for incomplete loan requirements.
Students are ultimately responsible for ensuring that all Memo Credits become Authorized Credits. All unpaid Memo Credits expire on October 15th for the fall semester and February 15th for the spring semester. Any outstanding balance becomes immediately due and payable by the student and is subject to any future late payment charges.
Billing Sponsors of Outside Scholarships
Many scholarship sponsors will accept a copy of the student account statement which the student may print/save from payment.brown.edu. If a special billing invoice is required for the sponsor of an outside scholarship, please send our office written confirmation of the scholarship and a request for a special billing invoice. The student account statement cannot be addressed to a scholarship sponsor. Our team will prepare a billing invoice and forward it directly to the sponsor. It is the student’s responsibility to follow up with the sponsor to ensure funds are received promptly by the University.
