Bentley Tuition Payment Options
Bentley makes it easy to pay your tuition providing multiple options including ACH/eCheck, credit card, a payment plan, cryptocurrency, check and more.
Electronic checks are payments made directly from your bank account at no additional cost. They can be initiated from within Workday. This payment method requires your bank ABA/routing number and account number (not a debit card number). Instruction can be found in student online payment job aid.
Other Payment Options
Bentley University offers a semester payment plan; the plan includes a maximum of four installments and is based on enrollment date. Plans are only available to students prior to the due date of their bill. Fall dates are Aug. 15 through Nov. 15, and the Spring dates are Dec. 15 through March 15.
Only the student can enroll in the payment plan. Parents with third party access can make payments to the payment plan. Enrollment into the plan is done online via the student's Workday portal by typing "Sign Up for a Payment Plan" in the search bar. There is a $35 enrollment fee that will be charged to the account at the time of enrollment. Enrolling in the payment plan is a two-step process. Once you hit submit you will be prompted to "Review Documents" and complete the payment plan terms and conditions (note, you will also receive a notification in your Workday inbox to complete the terms and conditions). The terms and conditions form must be completed to officially be enrolled in the plan.
Payments will automatically adjust when new charges are posted and if/when financial aid is adjusted.
Late installment payments are subject to a financial hold and a $20 late payment fee. Two consecutive missed payments will result in being removed from payment, and the full balance will be due immediately.
