Important Announcements from the Bursar

The Bursar’s Office is Paperless!

Bellarmine has gone green! We do not mail student account statements. The Bellarmine University email is the student’s official email address.  All communication regarding statements and charges will be sent to this email address. 

Students will receive an email when statements are ready for viewing. Additionally, if the student creates an authorized user account for a parent or guardian, an email will be sent to their email address on file. For security reasons, we advise students not to give out their personal log on information to their student account. Instead, students should consider setting up an authorized user with their own online portal. This option allows parents or other authorized users to access the student account billing information and make payments on the student account with their own secure login.  Information on how to set up an authorized user can be found on the internet at

Why Pay Student Tuition Online?  

Summertime has quickly come and gone and it’s time to return to school. Whether your student is an incoming freshman or a returning junior or senior, this time of year is all about the hustle and bustle. Between purchasing books, packing for the dorms, establishing meal plans, and all the other factors of college life, it may be difficult to find time to swing by the Bursar’s Office. Now you don’t have to! Students and parents can kick off their shoes, relax on the recliner, and pay tuition online with a credit card or by electronic check (e-check).  

Paying Online is:

  • Convenient – Tuition can be paid from the luxury of your home or during your lunch break at work.
  • Secure – All account information is confidential.
  • Quick – Payments are posted immediately to the student account.
  • Easy – Payments can be completed in just a few simple steps.
  • Efficient – There is no waiting in line and no risk of your check being lost in the mail.

For students to make a payment online, they will login here, select [Student] tab and then [My Account Information]. From there students will click the link [Click here for Account Information] and then “Click here to make a payment.” Parents will login here. The Bursar’s Office accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover online (2.75% fee) or electronic check (no fee).    


Fall tuition statements have been uploaded to the student accounts. Tuition was due by 8/1/14 but final payment for this semester is due no later than 9/24/14 to avoid interest and transcript, registration, and/or grade holds. Please remit payment or set up a monthly payment plan if you have not already done so. Thank you!


Declining Balance Flex$
You can now purchase Declining Balance Flex$ online! When you select “Click here to make a payment” you will be given a list of options to choose from, such as dorm charges, tuition, and declining balance flex$. For every $100 that is applied to the student’s flex account, they will be rewarded a $10 bonus on the account. Declining Balance Flex$ roll over from one semester to the next, as long as the student is affiliated with the university. This is an excellent option for commuters and great for residents who would like additional funds for food.

NEW: BU Dollars
BU Dollars is an online, prepaid declining balance account that may be used on Bellarmine's campus and at various participating locations around the city of Louisville. Purchased funds are uploaded directly onto the student's ID card and are active immediately. This account will roll over from one semester to the next as long as the student is affiliated with the university and may be renewed at any time. BU Dollars can limit the amount of cash carried by the student and can be applied to a variety of locations and vendors. Some of these vendors include Impellizzeri's, J Gumbo's, YellowCab, CVS Pharmacy, Rite Aid and more!

Commuter Plan – 30 Meals + $50 Flex$
You can now purchase the Commuter Meal Plan online! The plan cost is $239, includes 30 meals and $50 in Flex$, and rolls over from the Fall to Spring semester. This option is great for our Commuter students who eat meals on campus but also visit the café or carts where they can purchase items a la carte. Select “Click here to make a payment” and choose the Commuter Plan option.

The Full Amount Due Plan will create a payment plan for you based on the remaining estimated balance that comes directly from your ebill. The Custom Balance Plan allows you to enter in a contract amount separate from the ebill and is most useful for students with payments coming from multiple sources i.e. KAPT, NORTON, UPS, outside scholarships not yet received, etc. Payments are due on the tenth of each month. Once your plan has been created, you have the option to enroll in auto-payments, where the amount due is drafted from your bank account on the tenth of each month. You may also log in to pay toward your payment plan each month by selecting [Click Here to Make a Payment] and then [Monthly Installment Plan]. Payments toward the plan are made online ONLY.
