The Office of Student Accounts is committed to assisting students throughout their education at Bowie State University. We are the general billing and collections office for student tuition, course fees, and room and board. We are also responsible for the posting of employee tuition remission benefits and the billing for third party accounts. Online enhancements offered by the Student Accounts Office are electronic billing presented by Sallie Mae Corporation, Bowie Gold Card Refunds, and online 1098t tuition tax statements.
Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. with extended hours on Wednesdays until 7 p.m (regular session Fall/Spring). The Cashier's Office is open from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. with extended hours on Wednesdays until 6:30 p.m (regular session Fall/Spring). During student registration periods, which are generally the first two weeks prior to the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, hours are extended. Specific extended hours will be posted and announced in the student course schedules, on the web, and other similar media sources. For your convenience, there is also a night depository located at the cashier’s window where payments can be dropped off in person when the office is closed
Please note that all tuition/mandatory fees and Room & Board payments and payment plan options are available by accessing Bulldog Connection.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this or any other University publication, the University reserves the right to make changes in tuition, fees, and other charges at any time such changes are deemed necessary by the University System of Maryland Board of Regents.
The student is responsible for all costs incurred at the University. This provision is an irrevocable contract between the student and BSU. Previous balances will prohibit the issue of official transcripts or any other official evidence of attendance.
Any student who withdraws from the University or a course, must withdraw in accordance with the policies and procedures set forth in the University Catalog, the Academic Calendar and the published Refund Schedule. If a student does not adhere to the proper withdrawal procedures, the student forfeits the right to any adjustment and waiver of a liability to the University. If a student’s account becomes delinquent, the University will pursue collection of all outstanding balances under regulations of the State of Maryland. Accounts not paid to the University will be referred to the Central Collection Unit of the State of Maryland for possible legal action. The student is liable for the outstanding balance and collections costs in an amount approximately equal to 17% of the unpaid balance. The student’s credit rating will be affected.
