Tuition and Fee Payment Methods

It is the student’s responsibility to pay all tuition and fees by the publicized due date. If the student’s bill does not arrive in the mail for any reason, the student is responsible for obtaining the invoice from the Business Office. The student is also responsible for satisfying any necessary adjustments to his/her account, due to course load adjustments after the initial billing statement has been received. If financial aid or a payment plan is to be used, arrangements must be made before the publicized due date; otherwise, late payment fines are assessed. The payment plans described below must be arranged with the Business Office prior to the publicized due date and require an agreement signed by the student. Only those students who are in good financial standing with the University are allowed to participate in these payment programs.

By mail: Payment by mail is encouraged. Students should write their student account number on their check, and mail it to: Bursar, Neumann University, One Neumann Drive, Aston, PA 19014-1298. Do not mail cash, and be sure that all payments are mailed in time to reach the University by the publicized due date. Checks should be made payable to Neumann University.

In person: Payment may be made in person at the Business Office during the University’s published business hours. After business hours, payments may be placed in the Tuition Drop Box, located next to the Business Office (Room 104).

Credit Cards and Debit Cards: With proper authorization, the University accepts American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa, and debit cards.

E-Commerce: Credit card and check payments can be made online. If paying by this method, please access Neumann University’s web site at www.neumann.edu and, then, select WebAdvisor. After logging into WebAdvisor, select “Financial Information,” followed by “Make a Payment.”

In addition to financial aid, the following payment plans are available:

Further information regarding this plan can be obtained from the Business Office. An annual fee, which can vary from year to year, is charged for this option.

Employer Reimbursement: Students who are reimbursed by an employer may be eligible to receive an extension for payment, provided that they have been enrolled at the University in the preceding semester. In addition to signing an Employer Reimbursement Agreement, a letter from the employer indicating that the student will receive this benefit must be submitted each semester. A $20.00 fee is charged for this option.

Withdrawals and Refunds

Withdrawing or dropping a course entitles the student to a refund or a credit according to the scale listed below. Fees are not refundable, except for those courses which have been canceled by the University.

The date initialed by the University Registrar or academic advisor (for evening/weekend students only) on either the Drop/Add Form or Withdrawal Form serves as the basis for computing any refund.

The percentage of tuition to be refunded to the student is as follows:

  Fall and Spring  
  For students withdrawing before the first day of classes 100% of tuition
  For students withdrawing during the first week 100%
  During the second week 80%
  During the third week 50%
  During the fourth week 20%
  After the fourth week 0%
  Room fees are not refundable. Board fees are refunded on a pro-rated basis.

Special Notes for Summer Classes

  The percentage of tuition to be refunded to the student is as follows:
  For students withdrawing during the first week 100%
  During the second week 80%
  After the second week 0%

The first scheduled meeting of a course constitutes the beginning of the refund period for that course. The refund period may change based upon the length or nature of the course. Refunds are determined by the Business Office only. Financial Aid is adjusted accordingly with regard to the number of credits which have been dropped. If a student withdraws or if a credit is incurred due to financial aid awards or overpayment, a refund can be expected through the mail in a timely manner. If a student feels that individual circumstances warrant an exception to this refund policy, a request for such consideration must be made in writing to the Business Office, Attention: Bursar, Neumann University, One Neumann Drive, Aston, PA 19014-1298.
