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 Fall Dates
- August 2 - Charges and anticipated aid ready to be viewed in the E-Bill System.
- August 20 - Payment Due Date*
- August 16 – Refund processing begins if set up for direct deposit, financially settled, and financial aid applied.
- August 23 - 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.
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 with any questions.
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.

Subsequent Installment Due Dates
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.
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%
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.
