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.

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.

Undergraduate Day Students

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 may also use WebAdvisor to pay their account balances online by accessing the QuikPAY link.  Electronic checks and credit card payments are accepted. There is no fee to pay by electronic check. Credit card payments will be assessed a 2.75 percent service fee. Philadelphia University accepts American Express, Discover, MasterCard and VISA for tuition payment.

Philadelphia University offers a deferred payment plan for students through Tuition Management Systems (TMS). Enrollment forms are mailed to undergraduate student’s home billing address.

Tuition Remission and Reimbursement

Students whose employers offer tuition remission will need to submit this information to the Student Account Office by the first day of the semester.  In the event of non-payment by the employer, the student will be responsible for all charges.  Notification will be required each semester.

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.

The University’s Student Accounts Office may be contacted by email at studentaccounts@PhilaU.edu or by phone at 215.951.5988 regarding any questions on the student account.
