What forms of payment can I use to pay my student account bill?
Brown University accepts cash, checks, electronic checks (ACH), money orders, traveler's checks and wires. We do not accept credit card payments for University charges.
My student account payment may be late if I send it regular mail. What are my alternatives to get the payment there on time?
The fastest way to make a payment is to pay by electronic check (ACH) at https://payment.brown.edu. You can pay by using a checking or savings account from a U.S. bank. No foreign banks or corporate accounts are allowed. Your payment will credit your account the same day.
Your payment can also be made by either sending a bank wire transfer (see next question) or by sending the payment using an express mail service. If you are sending your payment via an overnight service, you must use a street address. Send these payments directly to:
164 Angell Street - 2nd Floor
Providence, RI 02912
Please be sure that you enclose your payment stub and write your account number on your check.
How do I pay with a wire transfer?
Funds can be transferred directly from your bank to Brown University. Your bank will require the following information:
|Receiving Bank Information|
One Citizens Plaza
Providence, RI 02903
|ABA Routing #:||011500120 (for domestic wire transfers)|
|SWIFT #:||CTZIUS33 (for international wire transfers)|
|Account Name:||Brown University|
|Account #:||Contact Cashier at (401) 863-1280 for account number information|
||Additional information for Brown to ensure proper credit of funds|
In order to assure proper and timely credit, it is vital the sender provide "special instruction" information such as a student name and account number, gift or pledge, or department contact and account number. Failure to provide this information could cause a delay in credit to the appropriate account.
How will I know my wire has been received?
To confirm receipt of a wire, contact the Bursar's Office at (401) 863-2484 or the Cashier's Office at (401) 863-1280. Wires received from overseas banks may take longer than domestic wires.
I forgot to include my payment stub with my check, how will my payment be applied?
Checks that are received with a payment stub are processed before those requiring research. Payments without a stub are normally credited directly to an outstanding student account balance first.
