Paying the Bill

Your student’s bill is generated each semester. Bills are issued electronically and can be viewed online via their Student Account Center . Monthly payment plans are offered through our partnership with Tuition Management Systems (TMS) and may be set up through your student’s Student Account Center. Before classes begin, your student’s bill must be paid in full or be covered by a monthly payment plan or an approved loan.

Your student's PBA email is the only place that the Financial Aid Office will send important communications regarding their financial aid. Your student also has access to their financial aid information, via myPBA, where they can view awards, check for outstanding documents, complete forms, etc. For any additional questions, please give us a call at (561) 803-2126 Monday through Friday from 8AM-5PM, or send us an email at finaid@pba.edu.
