Billing Terms and Conditions

An individual's registration as a Philadelphia University student constitutes his or her agreement to make timely payment of all amounts due. Philadelphia University uses electronic means (email and the Internet) as a primary method of communication and of providing billing, payment, and enrollment services. Signatures or acknowledgments provided by the student electronically to Philadelphia University via Philadelphia University systems and/or @students.PhilaU.edu or @PhilaU.edu email are valid and legally binding. Additionally, by accepting Philadelphia University's offer of admission and enrolling in classes, each student accepts responsibility for paying all debts to the University, including tuition and fees, for which he or she is liable. Details of the University’s billing policies are outlined in the Annual Expense brochure (included in this agreement by reference).

Students are invoiced in July and December for the next semester’s
charges and electronic statements may be accessed via
WebAdvisor using the QuikPAY link. In QuikPAY, students may add
an Authorized Payer who will also be notified when a new statement
is available. The University does not mail billing statements.

Only accepted and completed financial aid awards, including
Philadelphia University Scholarships, Federal PELL Grants, Federal
Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG), Federal
Perkins Loans, PHEAA Grants, Federal PLUS Loans, and/or Federal
Stafford Loans are included on the student’s invoice. Late applications
for financial aid, unless approved prior to the billing due
date, are not credited to the student’s account or accepted as
payment. Any balance due resulting from unapproved financial aid
must be paid by the billing due date. Any subsequent approval,
resulting in a balance due the student, will be refunded to the
student after the drop/add period.

Annual tuition due dates are as follows:

Day Students:

Fall Semester: July 31

If the University receives a total of three non-sufficient funds
(NSF) checks, all future payments must be made by cash, certified
check or money order.

Students whose employers offer tuition reimbursement will be responsible for paying the tuition by the term due date and submitting proof of payment to their employer for direct reimbursement.
