Loans often have origination fees which will be deducted prior to disbursement to your account.
Outside scholarships may be deducted from the bill as long as a copy of the scholarship letter has been provided to the Financial Aid Office. Be sure that the scholarship is being applied to the same semester that is shown on the bill. Outside scholarships may affect financial aid amounts depending on your need. Questions should be referred to the Financial Aid Office at 508-941-7052.
To deduct financial assistance expected from any source outside of the School, you must provide a copy of payment authorization from the funding source. Authorization must include:
Credits Which May Not Be Deducted From the Bill
Your payment is due by the due date indicated on your bill.
Students will receive bills on their NursingNet account. Paper copies are not mailed to the home address. An e-mail will be sent to notify you that the statements have been posted. Bills must be paid by the due date, which is approximately one month prior to the start of the semester. If the bill has not been paid by the due date, there will be a $50 late fee; and anyone not paid by two weeks prior to the start of the semester will be unenrolled from classes.
Bills are available to view online. Notification of electronic bills is sent to students to view their bills online. To access bills, students should go to NursingNet and then click on “Statement” in the “Student” section. Incoming freshmen will receive their first statement in the mail.
Debit or credit card payments are the preferred method of payment. Payments may be made in person or over the phone at 508-941-7047 until 3 pm. Payments must be made by the card holder, there are no exceptions. Debit or credit card payments can also be done by mail using the Credit Card Authorization form.
You may also send a check or money order, payable to the BHSN. Put your name and student ID number on all checks, money orders, correspondence and documents.

Payment Plans are offered for the Fall and Spring Semesters only. Students wishing to take part in the Budget Payment Plan must contact the Bursar’s Office to set up an appointment prior to the payable date on the statement. There is a one-time fee of $25 which is due by the payable date along with 25% of the statement balance. Three additional payments of 25% each will be due approximately 30, 60 & 90 days after the original payable date.
Any check returned or refused by your bank will result in a $25 charge, and you will no longer be ALLOWED to pay via personal check. All future payments will need to be made via debit card, credit card or money order.
Non-attendance does not relieve you of your financial obligation or entitle you to a refund.
If you decide not to attend the School, the charges on your bill remain your obligation unless you properly withdraw from the School. If you withdraw by the first week of classes, you will not incur liability. After that, reversal of charges will be in accordance with the schedule listed in the Student Handbook.
You will need to speak with the Financial Aid Office if you received loans to discuss the implications of reversals.
