Brown University accepts payments for Pre-College Programs by:
- credit card, through E-Bill (not available for students in the Pre-Baccalaureate program)
- electronic transfer (ACH) for balance payments only, through E-Bill
- wire transfer, through Flywire
- personal check or money order (drawn on a U.S. bank)
Credit Card – NEW this year! Available to domestic and international Pre-College students. This payment option is not available to students enrolled in the Pre-Baccalaureate or other credit-bearing programs.
Credit card payments are now accepted for Pre-College student account balances, application fees and deposit payments. Credit card payments are made by the student or authorized user via E-Bill, at payment.brown.edu. An authorized user should be a family member and not an outside agency, as privileged student account information can be viewed within E-Bill. Credit card payments will post immediately to the student’s account.
Online Electronic Payments (ACH) – Available to students paying their account balance from a personal U.S. checking or savings account.
ACH is accepted for student account balances only. ACH payments are made by the student or authorized user via E-Bill, at payment.brown.edu. An authorized user should be a family member and not an outside agency, as privileged student account information can be viewed within E-Bill. ACH payments can be scheduled for processing on the day of access or at a future date. Only U.S. personal checking or savings accounts are accepted. Debit cards and corporate accounts are not acceptable for the purposes of ACH transactions. Electronic payments will post immediately to the student’s account and may take up to 48 business hours to post in the student/family's bank account.
International Wire Transfers via Flywire – Available to students paying their account balance from a foreign bank account.
Brown University has partnered with Flywire to offer a streamlined and cost-saving way for students and families to make international tuition payments. With this partnership, students and families are offered:
- favorable foreign exchange rates
- the ability to pay in their home currency (in most cases)
- savings compared to traditional banks
In addition, students and families will be able to track their payment(s) via Flywire's dashboard and will be notified via email (and/or text) when payment is received by Brown.
Flywire offers around-the-clock multilingual support, via chat, phone, and email. For more information, or to initiate a payment, please visit the website: flywire.com/pay/brown.
Check Payments - accepted, though discouraged due to mail and processing delays
Students and families who need need to pay a deposit by personal check or money order, should contact us at email@example.com for instructions. Do not send a deposit payment directly to the Cashier’s Office.
Personal checks and money orders can be sent directly to the Cashier’s Office for student account balance payments, following the instructions below.
If paying by check or money order, you should send your payment well in advance of the payment deadline as students could lose their place in the program if payment is not received by the deadline. We are not able to make accommodations for delays in the mail or processing.
Checks should be made payable to Brown University, include the student’s full name and Banner ID number and be sent to:
69 Brown Street, 2nd Floor
