Tuition and fees are billed twice a year - fall and spring semester. The bill for the fall semester will be mailed in July 2013 and will be due in August 2013. The billing for the spring semester will be mailed in December 2013 and will be due in January 2014.

The bill is sent to the address given to Bucknell on the Acceptance of Admission Form unless you write to Bursar Services in the Finance Office using a Change of Billing Address form. This form can be found on Bucknell's Finance Office website under the section "Students Financial Services". The form needs to be completed, signed and mailed to Bursar Services, Finance Office, Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA 17837. This information cannot be sent electronically.

For first year students, the first semester billing invoice will typically include the following fees: tuition, student activities fee, room and board, and health insurance. The $500 enrollment deposit will be listed on your billing invoice as a credit.

There are two ways to make payment to Bucknell University:

  1. A personal check drawn on U.S. dollars from a U.S. bank.
  2. Wire transfer. To wire money to Bucknell, request the wire transfer instructions and give them to your banking institution. When wiring money be sure to ask what the bank will charge for the wire transfer. If the bank does charge a fee, is the fee charged separately or will the bank take the fee from the money being wired to Bucknell? If the bank does not charge the fee separately, be sure to wire enough money to cover both the invoice and the bank fee for wiring the money.

To obtain the instructions for a wire transfer you must email your request to Bursar Services at
