Notification of Summer Charges

Billing at Tufts University is paperless and Tufts University's primary form of communication is email, including all communication about tuition charges and payment. All communication about student charges, billing, and payment is communicated to students through the Tufts University email accounts provided through the registration process (Tufts matriculated students will receive emails in their existing Tufts email accounts).

Both Tufts and visiting students enrolled in summer courses are responsible for all university communications sent to their Tufts University email address. Mailed paper invoices are not sent to students or to families.

Tufts University will release enrollment, tuition, and fee charges information via email within one to two business days after registration (or acceptance, in the case of the Pre-College Program). Notifications will be sent weekly until payment is received in full.

Your Tufts Summer Tuition & Fee Invoice

Tufts University issues all student bills electronically using eBill, through Higher One. eBill is only accessible through the SIS portal. You may invite other individuals (such as your parents) to view or pay the eBill by adding them as an "invited viewer" in the SIS portal ( Tufts eBills are issued weekly (if you have new charges) and monthly (if you have an outstanding balance). Students and invited bill viewers will receive an email notice whenever an eBill is posted.

To view or pay your eBill

  • Log into your SIS account (students and invited viewers)
  • Click on the Bills & Balances tab
  • Select "My eBill" or "Make Payment"

Please note that the Bills & Balances tab in SIS provides the most up-to-date summer tuition and fee charges based on your registration.

If you have questions about your bill, charges, or how to pay, please contact Tufts Student Services at 617-627-2000 or

Paying Your Bill (Clearance of your Account)

After registration and confirmation, you will be notified via email that charges have posted to your student account at the Tufts Student Information System site ( You will need a Tufts User ID and Password to access this information.

Payment in full (including previous balances) is due upon notification of summer tuition and fee charges, but no later than the first day of the course session.  Any previous outstanding balances must be paid at that time as well.

Payment made on or after the first day of the course session is considered late, and balances are subject to a late payment fee and/or other penalties and action (including withdrawal).

Your Responsibility to Pay

It is your responsibility to pay your Tufts University summer tuition and fees on-time. Tufts University will post your charges to SIS and Tufts eBill, but it is important to understand that if you submit registration in the days just prior to the start of the summer session, charges may not post immediately. This does not reduce your obligation to clear your balance by no later than the first day of the course session.

It is a policy of Tufts University that non-attendance is not an indication of withdrawal. If you do not attend your summer course or courses, and/or you do not drop or officially withdraw from your summer enrollment, you will continue to be charged for the course, and you will retain your academic responsibilities to the course. Please click here for more information on how to officially withdraw from a course.

Outstanding Balances

Any account balance that remains on or after the first day of the course session with a summer and/or a prior balance is subject to additional administrative action by the Office of Student Financial Services.

Such actions include, but are not limited to:

  • Late Payment Fee (1.5% of the balance, compounded monthly)

  • A registration hold

  • A withdrawal of registration

  • Transfer of balance to a collection agency (with all collection and service fees accruing to the student and a report made to the credit bureau)
