Payment Policies & Guidelines

Undergraduate tuition for fall 2018 is due July 31, and for spring 2019 December 17, all other tuition is due the first day of term. This includes Evening, Graduate and Online students. 

All billing statements are provided online through Web Advisor, students are required to login and resolve outstanding account balances prior to due dates stated above.

A late fee of $25 per month will be charged on any past due account balance starting 30 days after the due date. This fee will repeat each month that a past due balance, including the late fee, continues.

Any student who has an account balance greater than $2,500.00, 3 days after the start of term, may be dropped from all current term classes. This balance will be calculated net of any pending financial aid, TMS payment plans, sponsorships, or tuition remission.  Students must have signed up for a TMS payment plan or submitted all appropriate documentation for a sponsorship, third party payer or tuition remission by the first day of term, to have these included.  Students are responsible to verify appropriate documentation has been submitted with Student Accounts.

Account balances greater than $500 at the end of add/drop period will have a financial hold placed on the student account. This hold will not be lifted until the account is paid in full, and will prevent future registration or obtaining an official transcript.

Account balances greater than $500 which are 120 days past due, where no action to resolve a past due balance has been taken, will be forwarded to an external collection agency. This includes any account where a Promissory Note missed payment or default has occurred.

 

An individual's registration as a Jefferson/East Falls campus student constitutes his or her agreement to make timely payment of all amounts due. Jefferson/East Falls campus 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 Jefferson/East Falls campus via Jefferson/East Falls systems and/or @students.PhilaU.edu or @PhilaU.edu email are valid and legally binding. Additionally, by accepting Jefferson/East Falls campus'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 Jefferson 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.

 

 

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.
