How to Pay Your Bill

Medical students are billed twice each academic year on a semester basis. The fall bill is available in early July and payment due August 1. Spring bills are available in December and payment is due January 1.

The billing process is paperless with on-line statements available at http://payment.brown.edu and at http://selfservice.brown.edu. Students may make payments, view billing information and may add authorized users to view their student account statement.

For detailed instructions to add an authorized user, and for further information, visit the Bursar Office web site at www.brown.edu/bursar. Billing questions should be addressed with the Bursar Office (401-863-2484;bursar_billing@brown.edu)

Refunds

Once funding has been credited to your Bursar student account and all Brown charges have been paid for the semester, your account may reflect a credit balance. Credit balances are intended to cover part or all living expenses for a given semester. The amount of your credit balance will depend upon the aid amounts that you have accepted.

Students now have the capability to obtain their refunds electronically! By requesting a refund via our new online Refund Request Form, and setting up the request to receive the refund in a US checking or saving account at payment.brown.edu, students will receive refunds in a quick, convenient manner. Students should receive the refund in their account 3-5 days from the date the request form is submitted.
