Your Charges & Financial Settlement

Once you are registered for a term, you will receive an email from the Cashier's Office containing instructions for viewing your charges and completing Financial Settlement. Financial Settlement is the final phase of registration each term you attend Baylor.  Baylor University has included a Financial Responsibility Agreement as part of the financial settlement process.

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

  • Confirm your attendance and financial responsibility in BearWeb
    • Student Financial Services > Student Account > Confirm Attendance & Financial Responsibility
    • If you do not owe a balance, you must still confirm your attendance and financial responsibility.
  • Pay your charges
    • View your charges in the E-Bill System and either pay in full or enroll in a Payment Plan
Important Dates
  • Next Business Day After Registration (Beginning July 15) - Charges and anticipated aid ready to be viewed in the E-Bill System.
  • August 17 - Payment Due Date
  • August 19 - If set up for direct deposit, financially settled, and financial aid applied, funds should arrive in your designated bank account.

Schedule Changes

Add/Drop Refunds

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

  • Week 1 - 100%
  • Week 2 - 50%
  • Beginning Week 3 - 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.
