Student Payment Policies

A student's registration for a given semester is not complete until all expenses are paid or the first payment of the Installment Plan (the Minimum Amount Due) is received. If this payment is not received by the due date, a late fee of $100 ($50 for the summer semester) will be assessed. If payment is not made before the cancellation date, the student's class schedule will be cancelled and a re-registration fee of $150 ($100 for the summer semester) plus the late fee of $100 ($50 for summer) will be charged.

Payment for BearBucks™ must be received before they can be activated.

Students with an account balance will have a transcript hold placed on their account and are not eligible to receive an official transcript until the balance is paid in full. Please see the Baylor Transcript Policy for further information on transcript holds.
