The Bursar’s Office Payment Center is open 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday-Friday, and is located on the third floor of the Enrollment Services Center.
The Bursar’s Office reserves the right to refuse unwrapped or loose coins. Large quantities of coins must be rolled in order to be considered an acceptable form of payment.

Cash handling accounts are designed for transacting business and may not be used as a check-cashing fund for students, staff, or anyone else. Checks may not be accepted for more than the transaction amount.



The Bursar's Office does not accept in-person or mailed credit card payments.
Credit card payments may be made online. To do so, go to Towson Online Services and log in; click Self Service> Student Center and under Finances, click Make A Payment. You will be directed to TU’s eBill and Payment system. Click Payments and continue with the payment process.

Payments can be made by wire transfer. For bank information to submit a wire transfer, please contact Stephanie Flanagan or Dawn Kuessner at 410-704-2100 option 5. The student's name and TU ID number should appear on the wire transfer document.
Deferred Payment Plan
The university offers a deferred payment plan that extends to students or third parties a monthly budget plan for meeting the cost of tuition, university fees, and on-campus housing and meals each term. Some student housing facilities (listed below) are privately operated, and rent is not included as part of the university’s term billing. Rent for these facilities – Millennium Hall, Paca House, and Tubman House – is to be paid to Capstone Management and therefore cannot be included in a deferred payment plan. For more information about the university’s deferred payment plan options, go to Nelnet/eCashier Tuition Deferred Payment Plan or call the Bursar’s Office at 410-704-2100 or 1-888-5-BURSAR.


Employee Tuition Remission

Towson University offers tuition remission benefits to employees, spouses and dependents who wish to takes courses at the university. Tuition remission forms, deadlines and guidelines are available from the Office of Human Resources.

  • Programs of Study Exempted from Employee Tuition Remission:

Financial Aid

You'll receive information about your financial aid awards from TU's Office of Financial Aid. Federal regulations governing financial aid programs require that all aid be applied first to a student's basic costs of tuition, fees and other direct costs billed by the school. If you finalize your aid as early as possible, and register for classes at the earliest opportunity, your aid may be on your account when the Bursar’s Office generates your term bill, and will show as an offset to your charges.

Third Party Payment Agreement

The university will accept third party contractual agreements with verification of third-party funds.
