Looking Forward to Spring

November 14, 2013

Yes, Spring!  Winter begins with the solstice at 12:11 P.M. on December 21, but Financial Services is already preparing for the Spring.

Student account statements will be available for spring 2014 semester on Monday, November 18th and are due on January 1, 2014.

Students and authorized users should view their statements at https://payment.brown.edu.  EBill is the University’s official form of billing.  The Student Account Statement itemizes all charges and/or credits submitted by University departments for the term.  Subsequent monthly electronic statements identify a previous balance outstanding and itemize charges and/or credits applied during the statement billing period.  Payment for the spring 2014 is due by January 1, 2014.  Students who fail to make payment in full by prescribed deadlines are assessed a Late Payment Charge of 1.5% per month on any unpaid balance.

Access the E-Bill and E-Payment system at http://payment.brown.edu.  From the E-Bill/ E-Payment web site, you may:

  • View/print current and prior statements
  • Print and mail statement to others
  • Open, save as a PDF document, and email to others
  • Make payment via U.S. checking or saving account
  • Enroll in Installment Payment Plan
  • Set up authorized users to view and make payment on your account
  • Add an alternative email address for which notices will be sent

If a billing statement is required for the sponsor of an outside scholarship, please send the Bursar’s Office written confirmation of the scholarship and a request for a special billing statement. The student account statement cannot be addressed to a scholarship sponsor. The Bursar’s Office 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.

Financing the cost of an education requires thoughtful planning and research to determine what will work best for the student and their family’s budget.  Options offered at Brown include loans, scholarships, monthly installments, and a prepaid tuition program.  Information is listed on the Bursar Office website to assist with your decisions.
