Billing and Payments

 

For the convenience of our students and their families, the Student Accounts Office provides a number of methods for paying your tuition bill. Students and parents can also receive and pay their tuition bills electronically through PennWest Edinboro’s eBill system.

Your eBill

eBill sends automatic email notifications when new bills are issued or financial aid awards are applied to a student’s account, and parents or other designees can be given access to view bills and make payments. Payments can be made by credit card or webCheck, which withdraws money from a checking or savings account. When making payments via credit card through our servicer, PayPath, there will be a 2.85% convenience fee.

eBill FAQs

An email notification will be sent to your school-assigned email address and to any authorized users when a new eBill is available online. The email notification will include some information about your billing statement and a link back to your secure log-in page. No sensitive student information will be in the email notification.

Yes. Our eBill application allows you to add an alternate email address, either your own or your parent’s, for receiving email notifications. Go to the Authorized User tab on the eBill website to add the address. Your alternate account will not replace your school-assigned account; you will receive email notifications to both accounts.

Yes. Edinboro’s eBill system will store up to 36 bills for your reference. You can also view all transactions on your student account, regardless of how it was paid, through eBill by clicking on the Payments tab.

You may pay your statement online using a credit card or webCheck. To pay with a credit card, you will be required to enter the card number and expiration date and agree to fees charged by the credit card processor, PayPath, Inc. To pay with a webCheck, you will be required to enter your ABA routing number and account number (listed along the bottom of your check). You may use either a checking or savings account.

You may also store frequently used payment methods by assigning the payment account nickname. For example, you may store your checking account as “Primary Checking.” Choosing to store your payment methods will eliminate the need for you to re-enter your payment account information each time you wish to make a payment.

Payments made through our eBill system will update your student account immediately. You will receive a payment confirmation via email.

Yes. You may authorize a third-party user, such as a parent or guardian, to access your account by clicking on the authorized user tab within the eBill system. You will be required to enter the email address of the individual and configure the access rights the user will have. Once you have completed the enrollment process, your authorized user will receive an email notification with a randomly generated password, as well as log-in information for accessing your statement. Only authorized users will have access to your student bill. You may revoke an authorized user’s access rights at any time.

Other Payment Options

Our payment plans are designed to help students and their families budget the cost of tuition and fees by spreading payments over the course of the semester. You still owe the same amount of tuition, but you now have more time to pay and your payments are smaller and more manageable.

During a regular semester, the payment plans are divided into monthly or bi-weekly payments of the total charges for the semester, minus any financial aid. A non-refundable payment plan fee of $40 per semester will be charged to your student account.  Any change to an installment plan must have prior approval of the Student Accounts office.  PLEASE NOTE - Due dates CANNOT be changed.  Students may adjust payment methods but cannot cancel payment plans. In the event that you need to cancel the payment plan, please email studentaccounts@pennwest.edu at least 5 business days prior to the due date.  Please note that a late fee will be assessed on the remaining balance of the payment plan. If financial aid is awarded after the payment plan has been set up, you must continue to make regular payments until the aid is applied and the balance is paid in full.  Your budget will adjust accordingly for payments received on your account.

The payments are automatically withdrawn on your due date.  A late fee of $15 will be incurred each month for late payments and will result in a registration hold on the student's account.

**Two late payments will result in cancelation of the payment plan.**

Once registered for the payment plan, installment reminders will be sent to the student’s PennWest email and to authorized users monthly; no paper statements will be generated.  All payments will be automatically drawn from the payment method set up.

** Repeated default payments on payment plans will result in the payment plan no longer being an eligible payment option and we will prohibit your access to the plan.** 

  • Credit Card Convenience Fee (through Paypath):  2.85% (subject to change)
  • Monthly Late Fee:  $15 (charged after 5 days)

  • Return Check Fee:  $30 (subject to change)

Is your employer paying for a part or all of your education?  The Student Tuition Reimbursement Plan was developed by the university to financially assist students with their educational goals.  The purpose of the plan is to enable students to defer 80% of their tuition charges until 60 days after the conclusion of the semester.

Students and Employers must complete and submit the Student Tuition Reimbursement Agreement Form via email to studentaccounts@pennwest.edu.  Once the form is accepted by the university, you will receive an email to your PennWest email account instructing you to complete the next steps of signing up for the Tuition Reimbursement Payment Plan on your myPennWest.

  • Enrollment fee: $40 (Non-Refundable)
  • Down Payment: 20%

If these requirements are not met by the semester due date, the student will receive a non-refundable $100 late payment fine and a financial hold.

The remaining 80% will be drawn out of the account you set your payment plan up with 60 days after the semester ends.

  • Credit Card Convenience Fee:  2.85% (subject to change)
  • Return Check Fee:  $30 (subject to change)
