The Office of Financial Aid, the Bursar and the Loan Office are available to provide information about financing options and to assist families with developing a financing plan. We strongly encourage you to review the financing options referenced below as well as the financing examples. The Bursar's Office requires payment by August 1 for fall semester and January 1 for spring semester. All aid, regardless of source or origination, must be credited first toward college-billed charges, such as tuition, fees, and room and board. If, after deducting your anticipated financial aid from these charges, you will owe a balance, there are a number of payment options and resources you may consider.
Brown's Installment Payment Plan (IPP): Managed by the Bursar's Office, Brown's IPP enables students and their families to make interest-free monthly installments to cover each semesters tuition, housing, meals, and required fees. The IPP is available for the fall and spring semesters only. Enrollment in the plan for fall semester begins late June; enrollment in the plan for spring semester begins mid-November. Each semester of enrollment requires a $75 non-refundable enrollment fee. The IPP can be updated once your financial aid award is complete. Typically, awards for the upcoming year are completed mid to late June. M
