If, however, you are unable to access this document on-line and/or would prefer a copy to be faxed to you, please call our main switchboard at 305-899-3585. Be aware, that this form is only used for a one-time payment to your student account and will not be kept on file. Because of the sensitive nature of the information it contains, once the form is received and your payment has been processed, these documents will be shredded to protect your confidential credit account information.
4. Pay by Phone
There is an automated phone service provided by Barry University and Official Payments that will allow a credit card or checking account payment to be processed over the phone. The payer will need to know the dollar amount and student ID number prior to using this service. Payments are processed that day and will take up to 48 business hours to be applied to the student account.
The toll-free number is 1-866-895-5003.
5. Pay by Mail
Checks or money orders payments can be mailed to the Cashier/Business Office (CBO) at the address below:

Make all checks or money orders payable to Barry University. To ensure that your payment is processed to the correct account, please enclose your student ID or Social Security Number on any payment you submit to us. Post-dated checks are not accepted.
6. Installment Payments
All balances, generated by tuition and fees, are due at the time of registration. If you cannot pay your tuition costs in full at that time, payment plans are available through Tuition Management System (TMS).
Tuition Management Systems (TMS) ----a company outside of Barry University---- provides affordable payment schedules to help students budget their semester's charges. Through TMS, you have the options of arranging to pay your educational costs little by little through the length of the semester or throughout the year, depending on which method best suits your needs. Be aware that with all payment plans there is a nominal set-up fee which you will be required to pay at the time you fill out the paper work with TMS.
Interested students are urged to contact TMS directly at 1-888-713-7241, or visit their website at www.afford.com/barry for additional information.
NOTE: Because TMS is an outside company, they have no direct access to the actual charges in your student account. For this reason, you are strongly urged to contact CBO (305-899-3585) for the most accurate information regarding your account's balance. By taking this proactive measure to discover your true charges, you will prevent miscalculations (that may result from fluctuations in your estimated financial aid package or charges of which you are not aware) that may result in unexpected balances at the semester's end; balances that may hinder your registration for future semesters.
7. Financial Aid Awards
Your tuition and fees may be completely or partially covered by your Financial Aid award. You are responsible for any remaining balance. Please also note the College Work Study program cannot be considered as credit toward your charges. Parent loans and alternative loans will not be considered as credit toward your charges until they are approved. You can check the status of your Financial Aid award through WebAdvisor for Students or by calling Financial Aid (305-899-3673 option# 2).
8. Employer Reimbursement
In order to defer the payment of your tuition to the end of the semester you must submit to CBO, at the time of registration, an official letter from your employer on company letterhead. This document is required each semester and must state your eligibility for reimbursement and the conditions under which your company will pay your tuition and fees. The letter must include your company's policy regarding the percentage of your semester's costs they are willing to pay, the grade required for reimbursement, as well as the calendar period it covers. Additionally, you must complete a deferred payment plan form with the Business/Cashier office (CBO). Be aware that whenever payment of your tuition is not made in full at the time of registration, but deferred to a future date, there is a mandatory deferment fee of $50.00. Also, please be aware that this fee is non-refundable. Please call CBO at 305-899-3585 for further information regarding corporate payment plans.
