Frequently Asked Questions
All BC students and Authorized Third Parties, such as parents, guardians, or sponsors, will be able to view tuition and fees bills and make secured payments electronically through our online billing service.
You will be notified at your BC email address whenever an online bill is generated. You should, then, logon to your Agora Services account and click on the link for "My Bill," which will take you to QuikPAY®, BC's online billing website.
If you forward your BC email account, make sure your forwarding address is accurate. If you fail to provide your correct forwarding address, you will not receive an email notification. However, you will still be responsible for all pending charges and late fees, if applicable.
To authorize Third-Party Payers go to the “My Bill” link on Agora, which will take you to BC's online billing website, QuikPAY®. Select “Authorize Payers” from the menu bar, then follow the instructions. You will be asked to provide email addresses and temporary login names and passwords for all Third-Party Payers. Once authorized, they will be notified by email of a pending bill. They may view statements and make online payments through a link to QuikPAY® in their email notification. They must type in the login name and password you assigned them.
The student must reset the password if an Authorized Payer loses or forgets his/her password. The student will click the "Reset Password" from within the Authorized Payer's section of QuikPAY. A randomly generated password will be emailed to the primary email address on the Authorized Payer's account. The student will not have access to the new password.
The Third-Party Payer can still use the same password and email address for all accounts, but the login name for additional family members needs to be different. For example, if the login name for the Third-Party Payer is "billdad," the second student could assign "billdad2" as the login name for the same Third-Party Payer.
Yes. The technical architecture/security of the online billing website provides for intrusion detection and firewall systems to protect the network.
You may pay electronically any day of the week from a checking or statement savings account in the United States. You may keep your bank account information on the website or enter it each time you make an online payment.
Authorized payers will only be able to view their own payment and bank information. Each Authorized Payer is assigned a separate password for added security and privacy.
Authorized Third-Party Payers can pay tuition and fees bills through the system's online payment feature. Checking and savings account information from a bank within the United States can be entered on the QuikPAY® website. Payments will be transferred electronically to Boston College. You may keep your bank account information on the website or enter it each time you make an online payment.
To ensure security and privacy, each Authorized Payer is assigned a separate password to access his/her account and payment history. No one else, not even the student, will be able to view a Third-Party Payer's confidential account information.
Authorized payers can also print the bill and send a check or money order (no cash) made payable to Boston College through the mail to the following address:
Office of Student Services
