Bursar's Office

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and has implemented contingency planning to ensure the health of employees and safety of operations.  Currently the Institute has extended social distancing and many employees are working remotely.

The Bursar’s Office is maintaining operations but will not be accepting in person payments and is monitoring the bursar@rpi.edu mailbox.

COVID - 19 Payment Transactions Update

While the Rensselaer campus is operating under expanded social distancing, Bursar operations will continue to process payment transactions received through its online payment option and mail.  For fastest processing, payments should be submitted through our online payment portal using your checking or savings account.  Additional information can be found here:  https://info.rpi.edu/bursar/payment/#PaymentOptions.  As a reminder, to process your payment, you will need your bank’s ABA routing number and your bank account number.  Please note:  a debit card account number cannot be used to process a payment transaction.

The Office of the Bursar's main activities include billing and collections for all undergraduate and graduate students at the Institute, preparing and electronically sending out tuition bills, and providing account analysis to students and their families. In addition, the Bursar's Office processes all departmental transactions, such as deposits and petty cash reimbursements.
