Billing and Payment Options

BSC strives to ensure that paying your bills is a straightforward process. We offer a number of ways to pay, and our Student Finance office is available to answer your questions any time. Below you’ll find some questions often asked by students. If you don’t find the answer you need here, please contact us.

          FAQs for Online Payments at BSC         

When do I need to pay?


  • The payment due date is the class start date for each class of enrollment.  With classes starting at different times throughout the semester, you'll want to check your Campus Connection account to see when your tuition/fees are due. 


  • Charges for students who live in one of the BSC Resident Halls are due the day the student moves in.


  • All other charges, such as bookstore charges, fines, late fees, etc. are due when the charge is incurred.
  • Students are encouraged to make payments toward their balance in the amount they are able; however, any balance that has reached 30 days past due will have a registration/transcript hold and is eligible for the 1.75% late fee.   
  • Students who do not have their balance paid by the end of the semester may not be able to register for a future term. 
Payment submission grace periods are provided at the start of each semester. Refer to the BSC Academic Calendar each semester for the Grace Period date. During the grace period, neither holds preventing enrollment, nor late fees, will be applied.
