Frequently Asked Questions

Tuition and Fees

Your Barry education is a valuable investment in your future. When considering a private education, costs may be a factor, but they need not be the determining factor. Your Barry education can be quite affordable. 

We invite you to review our tuition and fee schedule by clicking the link below. You should also check with staff in Barry's Offices of Financial Aid and the Cashier/Business Office. They are here to help you and your family by providing guidance in financial planning and financial assistance.

Withdrawal Information For Undergraduate/Graduate Students (Not Pace)

A student who registers but does not attend class(es), or who stops attending class(es) for any reason after the semester has begun, will not be credited back for his/her tuition charges unless officially withdrawn from the university. Several steps must be taken for an official withdrawal:

  1. You must submit a written notice of withdrawal to the office of the Dean of your respective school.
  2. Complete a withdrawal form with your academic advisor (NOTE: only your academic advisor can officially register you for a class; similarly, only he/she can officially remove you from that class).
  3. If you are receiving financial aid, you must obtain the signature of Financial Aid.
  4. Finally, the Registrar's office must enter the withdrawal into the system and sign the form indicating the completion of the process.
  5. If you live on campus, you must complete a Housing Release Form online through your MyHousing account.

NOTE: Tuition and room on board costs will be credited according to the following refund schedule.
To receive a full credit back for all charges, your withdrawal paperwork must be entered by the Registrar's Office before the day your classes begin. Anything thereafter, is subject to partial or no credit back. Please consult the table below.

Eligibility for Refund

Withdrawal Information For Adult Learner Programs

Students who wish to change their registration status after the first three days of class must complete a Withdrawal Form or notify, in writing, their academic advisor/director. Students are also expected to contact the faculty member teaching the course from which they intend to withdraw.

There is no refund when withdrawing from a course. An unauthorized withdrawal will result in a final grade of "F". Students must withdraw before the final four (4) weeks of class. The effective date of the withdrawal will be the date of formal notification to the Dean of your respected school.

Dropped-Course Information For Adult Learner Programs

Students who wish to change their registration status before the semester begins or during the first three days of class, must contact their academic advisor to complete and sign a Registration Adjustment Form. This form must be turned in to the Office of the Registrar.

    Eligibility For Refund After Dropping A Course

    Prior to the beginning of classes....................................100% Through the first three days of classes.........................80% After the third day of classes................................No Credit The above percentages apply to tuition only. Lab and academic fees are NOT refundable.

Tuition Payment

The following term and conditions are financial requirements of your education related to your registration. All students have the option to pay in full, following any registration process, any remaining balance not covered by financial aid.

The payment of tuition and fees is the obligation of the student. Please read the following terms and conditions before your term registration:

Terms and Conditions of Your Registration

Registration Requirements For Loan Eligibility

To qualify for loans, you must meet the following minimum (half-time) registration requirements:

  • Undergraduate students = 6 credits or more
  • Graduate students = 4 credits or more
  • ANE students = 3 credits or more
  • Doctoral students = 1 credit or more (Education and Social Work doctoral students: 1 credit = half-time; Nursing doctoral students: 3 credits = half-time).

If at any time your credit hours drop below the half-time status, your financial aid loans will be sent back to the lender(s).

Generally, financial aid funds (loans, scholarships, grants) are not disbursed to your student account until after the add-drop period of classes. As a rule of thumb, loans are the first aids to arrive while scholarships and grants trickle in gradually as the semester progresses. You can request a refund of any excess financial aid only after the funds are physically in your account and all charges and fees have been deducted. For more information regarding refund checks please go to Overpayments and Refunds page.

    6. Employer Reimbursement (Not Available For BarryU Online Programs)

    In order to defer the payment of your tuition to the end of the semester you must submit to Cashier/Business Office, within the first two weeks of the semester, 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 Cashier/ Business 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 $150.00. Also, please be aware that this fee is non-refundable. Please call CBO at 305-899-3585 for further information regarding corporate payment plans.

Billing Statements

Cashier/Business Office sends e-mail statements at least bi-monthly to the student’s Barry electronic mail account. In addition to these e-mail statements, paper statements notices are sent periodically within the semester to the students’ primary address left on file with the Registrar’s Office. E-mail and paper statements are reminders of your financial responsibility to the university. As a student, it is your responsibility to use your Bucmail to receive these correspondences. It is also your responsibility to make certain that the address on file is accurate. Please be aware that transcripts and/or diplomas will never be released to a student until all tuition and fees have been paid in full.

Cash or credit card payments are the fastest ways to clear your account of a semester’s charges and thereby ensure the rapid release of the above items. Payments made by local checks are held for 10 business days before your transcript will be released to you; out-of-state checks require 15 business days to clear the bank. If you have any questions regarding your billing statements (understanding your statement, inquiries regarding your balance or a break down of specific charges, etc.) please contact the Cashier/Business Office at 305-899-3585 and a member of our team will happily assist you with your inquiries.

Past Due Accounts

If a student's account is left unpaid and therefore becomes delinquent, the account will be referred to a collection agency, attorney, or both.

In such an event, the student agrees to reimburse the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage at a minimum of 33 1/3% of the debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees that the university incurs in such collection efforts.

Corporate Reimbursement Deferment

In order to defer payment of your tuition to the end of the semester (specifically, until four weeks after the last day of class), you must submit to the Cashier/Business Office within the first two weeks of the semester, an official letter from your employer on company stationery. This document is required each semester and must state your eligibility for reimbursement. It must also include the conditions under which your company will pay your tuition and fees (percentage of your tuition charges they are willing to pay, the grade required for reimbursement, and the calendar period it covers).

Additionally, you must complete a deferred payment plan form with the Cashier/Business Office (CBO) to finalize the postponement of your tuition payment to the end of the semester. Be aware that whenever you do not pay your tuition and fees at the time of registration and choose instead to defer payment of your charges to a future date, there is a mandatory, non-refundable deferment fee of $150.00 that will be assessed each semester. Moreover, payment becomes due immediately upon course withdrawal or course failure.
