Methods of Payment

We accept several methods of payment for tuition and fees. You can combine any of these methods as long as you clear your balance due.

Online: Credit Card or E-Check

To pay online, please make your payment by logging onto Self Service. You may either pay by credit card or electronic check (e-check). Electronic checks must be drawn on a United States bank account. MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover are accepted. Credit card payments are subject to a 2.5 percent service charge. There is no charge for EFT/electronic checks.

Alternative Payment

If you do not have access to Self Service and want to make a payment on a student's account, you can visit our alternative payment website. Payment made via the alternative payment website will be posted to the student's account the next business day. Credit card payments are subject to a 2.5 percent service charge. There is no charge for EFT/electronic checks.


Personal checks, cashier's checks, and money orders are also accepted. All checks should be payable to Boston Conservatory at Berklee, payable in U.S. dollars, and drawn from a U.S.-based bank. Please clearly note the student's ID number on all checks. When mailing checks, be sure your payment will be received by the due date to avoid a late payment fee. Please mail checks to:

Tuition Payment Plan

Since 1990, Berklee has contracted with the company Nelnet/Tuition Management Systems (TMS) to provide students and parents with an interest-free payment plan option. Nelnet/TMS allows students to pay for fall or spring semester over a five-month period as opposed to making payment in full at the start of each semester. Payment plans are available only for the fall and spring semesters. Please know that there is a per-term fee of $60 to sign up with Nelnet/TMS.
