Massachusetts Maritime Academy - Home Business Office - Home

Welcome to Massachusetts Maritime Academy Business Office Page. We are located on the second floor of the Harrington Building.  To learn more about the Business Office and its functions, click on the “About Us” link.

Massachusetts Maritime Academy has updated the e-billing and e-refund systems.  You can now view and pay your student bills online through your WebAdvisor account.  This new system also enables the students to log into their accounts and invite parents/guardians to have personal access. 

The new and improved system enables you to:
  • Receive email notifications as bills arrive
  • View current account activity and billing history in real time.
  • Make payments online using a credit card or electronic check.
  • Sign up for electronic refunds to be directly deposited into your bank account when the credit becomes available.
PAYMENT PLAN:  Effective July 7, 2014 you will be able to establish a payment plan within your student account.  This plan can be located in the student billing page accessed through your WebAdvisor account.  It will allow you to have direct withdrawal payments deducted on a monthly basis from your checking or savings account, which will be reflected on your student account immediately.  Please contact the Business Office with any questions or concerns. 

IMPORTANT INSURANCE INFORMATION: Students enrolled for nine credits or more per semester are required by state law to have health insurance coverage.

All student's that need the student health insurance must fill out an online enrollment form to ensure prompt coverage for the 2014 fall term (form available now!) for coverage beginning 1 August. 

Students who have comparable coverage may elect to decline the student insurance by completing and submitting an online waiver (available now!). This must be done each spring for all students registered for the coming fall term. The charge will only be removed when and if the online waiver form is successfully submitted.

Any student who fails to submit the appropriate form will be placed on registration hold. 

If you have a loss of coverage you will need to complete and submit an enrollment form (link below) with the required documentation to University Health Plans within 30 days of the qualifying event (loss of coverage). Failure to follow these required steps may render you ineligible for the student insurance plan.   
 
Term bills are always due 30 days before the start of the term, so payment for the fall term 2014 is due August 1st. Payment, payment plan, or certified financial aid must be in place by that date to avoid late fees. Once payment is made it is the students responsibility to be aware of any fee increases that may result from changes to course registration, residency status, or program. Also, students who drop courses may fall below the minimum credit threshold and may have their financial aid decreased.

Please note: Students are responsible for any additional charges incurred subsequent to payment. For example, a student may register and pay at a part time credit load and subsequently add courses, or may register and pay and switch to a program that incurs the term based lab fee (FENV, MTRA or MENG). That student would owe those additional fees at the time the change occurs, and would need to ensure payment is made by the due date to avoid late fees or restrictions.  

Bills may be paid online through Web Advisor, the mail, or in person.  Due to audit requirements we DO NOT take credit card or other payments over the phone.
  • AS OF NOVEMBER 1, 2013 We will no longer accept American Express credit card payments.  We are stilll accepting credit card payments online with a MasterCard, Discover or Visa.  Please contact the Business Office with any questions or concerns.  All credit card payments are assessed a 2.75% convenience fee or a minimum of $3.00.
