*All fees are proposed and subject to change.

The University reserves the right to correct typographical errors or to adjust the Tuition and Fees schedule at any time it deems necessary

The Trustees of Boston College reserve the right to change the tuition rates and to make additional charges within the University whenever such action is deemed necessary.

Matriculated students at Boston College are individually, personally, and primarily responsible to the University for paying all tuition and other fees associated with enrollment and room and board, if applicable. This obligation also applies to any additional tuition and fees resulting from adjustments to course schedules. Students remain responsible in accordance with University policy for tuition and fees for classes from which they have been withdrawn, been dropped, failed, or failed to attend. Students must formally withdraw from any/all classes that they do not attend in a particular semester. Failure to properly withdraw from these classes, according to the withdrawal timelines published by the Office of Student Services (www.bc.edu/content/bc/offices/stserv/academic/univcat/undergrad_catalog/policies_procedures.html#withdrawalc), will not relieve students of their responsibility to pay any tuition/fees owed for such classes.

Students will be informed of the status of their accounts via an electronic billing statement. It is their responsibility to review the statement, to make payments by the due date stated in the billing statement, and to advise the University in a timely manner of any errors or discrepancies. They also agree that, in the event their account is delinquent, a registration, transcript, ID, meal plan, parking and diploma hold will be placed on their account. There will be a $150 late payment fee assessed to unresolved accounts by the due date. Failure to pay any balance when due may result in the cancellation of a student’s registration for the current academic term, referral of the account to a collection agency, legal action to collect any balance due, or any combination thereof.  Students will be responsible for all fees and costs incurred by Boston College for the collection of the past due amount, including collection and attorneys’ fees. They will be charged a fee of $25.00 for a returned check or returned electronic payment ($40 if this is a fourth returned item and $65 for any returned item over $2000).  

Students will not be permitted to enroll in classes without agreeing to accept financial responsibility as described below.
