Financial Settlement
Master of Laws (LL.M.)

Your Charges & Financial Settlement

Once you are registered for a term, you will receive an email from Student Financial Accounts containing instructions for viewing your charges and completing Financial Settlement. Financial Settlement is the final phase of registration each term you attend Baylor.

Once your charges are available for the term, you must complete the following two steps:

  • Confirm your attendance in BearWeb
    • Student Financial Services > Student Account > Confirm Attendance
    • If you do not owe a balance, you must still confirm your attendance.
  • Pay your charges
Important Dates

Spring 2022

  • January 4 - Bill available in the E-Bill System.
  • January 17 - Payment Due Date*
  • January 18 - If set up for direct deposit, financially settled, and financial aid applied, funds should arrive in your designated bank account.
  • January 24 - Classes Begin

*When currently enrolled students early register for an upcoming term, they are then billed approximately two weeks prior to the due date. Students registering after a certain point are on a rolling “register—bill—due” cycle. This means the due date will be determined by the date of registration.

Financial Aid

Verify financial aid and/or loans are properly reflected on your student account. If accepted loans have not been applied and you are registered for less than full time (8 hours or less), then you will need to contact the Student Financial Aid office to request the loan(s) be reset for less than full time enrollment. If necessary, review the Online Student Financial Aid Checklist and contact the Student Financial Aid office at 254-710-2611, Option 3, with any questions.

Payment Plan

To make the process of paying for your Baylor education more manageable, you have the option to enroll in a Payment Plan. Plan enrollment is required each term in which you participate in the Payment Plan. For more detailed information on Baylor's Payment Plan, click here.

To complete financial settlement by participating in a Payment Plan, enrollment must be complete by the financial settlement due date.

Types of Payment Plans

Standard 25% + $50 Setup Fee 3
Deferred $75 Setup Fee Only 3





Subsequent Installment Due Dates

Fall Winter Spring
August 31 November 30 February 28/29
September 30 December 31 March 31
October 31 January 31 April 30

If you do not wish to be on a payment plan, payment in full must be received during financial settlement to avoid a late fee.

Authorized Users

Adding an Authorized User in the E-Bill System is a student’s written consent that an individual may view account information, make payments on their behalf, and communicate with Student Financial Services regarding their student account. More information about Authorized Users can be found here.

Schedule Changes

Add/Drop Refunds

Once classes have begun, a student will need to complete an Add/Drop form from the Office of the Registrar. A refund is based on the following:

Class Days Refund
1-5 100%
6-10 75%
11-15 50%
16-20 25%
21 or later 0%

Cancellation/Withdrawal Refunds

A cancellation occurs when a student decides not to attend classes for a term prior to the first day of classes for that term and the student is fully refunded. A withdrawal happens beginning the first day of class and a refund is based on a percentage of days participated in the term.

Contact your advisor, program director, or click here for more information on how to initiate a withdrawal.

Direct Deposit

Baylor University will electronically deposit your student financial aid refund in the financial institution of your choice. Learn more about Direct Deposit here.


In order to avoid transcript and registration holds, your account must remain current.

If you have questions regarding your student account, please contact the Student Accounts Office or call (254) 710-2311.
