Payment Plans

Payment plans are offered by MindMax, a Boston University partner. These payment plans are not loans; they allow you to complete your program payment in installments. As such, you are not required to sign an agreement of any kind. To take advantage of this option, simply select the “payment plan option” in the Payment Plans section of your shopping cart, and a prorated amount will be automatically deducted from your credit card.

Students may qualify for alternative funding sources, including loans and funding through affiliation with the U.S. Military.

Students who qualify for VA funding should contact Boston University for assistance by calling 617-353-4497 or by emailing

Third Party Payments

Payments from third party entities, including employers and state training offices, are also accepted. Funding is typically authorized with a letter of credit to Boston University. Checks must include the student’s name and be made out to Boston University.

The address should be listed as:

Boston University
Center for Professional Education & Evergreen
1010 Commonwealth Ave., 1st Floor
Boston, MA 02215

Military Benefits

Veterans Administration Funds

This program is approved for VA tuition funding; however, books and other promotional materials may not be covered. Contact your VA representative to find out if your GI Bill includes a book stipend. Students who wish to use VA funding must contact Boston University directly at 617-353-4497 or Learn more about military benefits by visiting the Funding Options page for Boston University Center for Professional Education.

Funding for U.S. Military Dependent Family Members

Military dependents may qualify for MyCAA. Contact a military education counselor for more information.

Education Loans

Because the Center for Professional Education offers non-degree certificate programs, students may qualify for private, credit-based loans. Visit the BU Center for Professional Education website and follow the directions for education loans to see your options for credit-based loans.

Students are not eligible for federal student loans or deferments on existing student loans. Enrollment is not guaranteed without payment or confirmation that a loan has been approved and will be disbursed.

Robert J. Glovsky Scholarship Fund

The Robert J. Glovsky Scholarship Fund provides annual merit-based scholarship awards to one or more students. Students must be enrolled in the online Financial Planning Program at Metropolitan College’s Center for Professional Education. Preference is given to students who aim to assist traditionally underserved populations, as evidenced by applicants’ professional or personal work in the nonprofit sector. Selected students are awarded up to $2,000 (no cash value) per year, which is directly applied to course tuition.
