How can I defer payment?

If your employer will reimburse your tuition, we do offer a tuition reimbursement agreement.  The agreement outlines the courses that you are taking, how much of the tuition that your employer will pay, and how much of the university's fees that your employer will pay.  If your employer will pay 100% of the tuition and 100% of the fees, then you are required to pay a $125 deposit to have your bill deferred.  If you employer only pays 100% of the tuition, then you are required to pay all of the fees not paid by your employer to have your bill deferred.  If your employer only pays a portion of the tuition, you are required to pay any part of the bill that is not covered by your employer to have your bill deferred.  The tuition reimbursement form has a place for your employer to sign, a place for you to sign and a place for your credit card information.  All of the signatures, the credit card information and payment must be received in order for the agreement to be valid.  The credit card information is required only to be used if the semester is not paid in full within 45 days of the term ending.  The student is required to turn in any grades required to the employer.

Why do I have a financial hold?

The financial hold on the student account generally means that the student has something missing or has not taken care of their school bill.  Questions regarding this type of hold can be answered by sending an e-mail from your student webmail account to bursar@edinboro.edu, by calling us at 814-732-5555, or by coming in to the office with your student id. 

The hold could also have been placed by the campus police for unpaid parking tickets. Any questions regarding this hold should be directed to the campus police at 814-732-2921.  In order to make payment for your parking tickets go to the Edinboro homepage at www.edinboro.edu and keyword "Parking Tickets."  You can pay via credit card online.  You can also mail a check with your name, student id#, license plate # and/or ticket #'s to the Office of the Bursar, 210 Glasgow Rd., Edinboro, PA 16444 or pay in the office with check, cash or debit card.

Why am I being charged the additional fees on my bill?

Health Center Fee   

  • Provides all reasonable and necessary medical care to individuals needing assistance. 
  • Physicians and nurses are on duty to provide immediate medical attention.  There is no additional cost to the student to see a doctor or nurse.
  • The Health Center also deals with some public health issues, such as the spread of infectious diseases, which can affect all students.
  • A number of our students are covered by Health insurance; however the total cost of this operation must be shared by all students.

Student Activity Fee

  • Assessed by the Student Government Association in accordance with Act 188 of the General Assembly.  The fee provides funds for the educational, social, cultural, athletic, and leadership activities of the student population. For example, it funds special lectures, guest speakers, and concert events.

University Center Fee

  • Used to defray the cost of the Pogue Center giving students access to any and all of the activities that are held there.  It also is a fee to provide for repayment of financing for construction, mandated by Pennsylvania legislation.

Instructional Service Fee

  • This fee is not assessed for academic advisement but is used to help defray educational expenses and supplies such as instructional equipment, diplomas, lab supplies and faculty travel for internships.

Tuition - Technology Fee

  • This fee is set by the Board of Governors in Harrisburg to help keep the computer labs and equipment located on the campus running and updated for the students to use.
  • The fee is also used to make sure that communications between a student that is taking courses off-campus and the university are maintained properly.

Art Fee

  • Art is one of Edinboro’s most expensive programs due to high technology expenses and small sized studio classes. This fee is charged to help cover some of these expenses and is calculated as 5% of the tuition rate for classes with an ART course prefix. This comes to just over $14 per credit for in-state undergraduate students.
  • Most importantly for students, this fee will cover the cost of special art materials that the student previously paid for in certain studios; for instance, students previously paid the University for wood purchased for projects in wood studio classes, and for clay used in ceramics classes, but this and similar purchases will now be purchased directly by the Art department using funds generated by this fee.
  • The fee covers only a part of these expenses and is set at a minimal level to keep the program affordable.
  • This fee will not be charged for Art History or Art Education courses since these are not technology-intensive courses or studios.

Music Fee

  • The Music Fee is charged as $100 per credit for applied music lessons. The lessons are 1-credit courses so the fee will be $100 for the lessons for each applied instrument studied during the semester.
  • Music is one of Edinboro’s most expensive programs partly because of the individual attention from faculty that students receive in these applied lessons. Even with this fee, these lessons are a very good value compared to what a student would pay for private lessons outside of the University.
  • This fee was actually recommended by Music students as a way of making the program more cost effective so that the University could maintain the major.
  • The fee covers only a part of these expenses and is set at a minimal level to keep the program affordable.

Student Success Fee

  • This fee is set at $30 per semester and is used to partially support the costs of the Academic Success Center.
  • This Center provides academic advising support for all students, oversees tutoring assistance, and provides one-on-one and group instruction to students on study skills, test-taking skills, and time management so that they can be successful in their programs at Edinboro.
  • The Center is staffed full-time each weekday so that students have ready access to assistance and direction.
