The Student Accounts Office distributes tuition bills, collects and tracks bill payments, and processes tuition and financial aid refunds. Our goal is to help students and their families meet their financial responsibilities to the University in a way that is manageable and convenient.
The Student Accounts Office processes tuition refunds for withdrawals from the University in accordance with University and Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education policies.
During the regular Fall and Spring semesters, if students choose to withdraw from the University during the first five weeks of the semester, there will be a refund of tuition, room and meals (if applicable) and some fees. The refund percentage used in the calculation is based on the date of withdrawal entered by the student in the S.C.O.T.S. system in accordance with PA Board of Governor's Policy 1983-19-A. Refunds for students who withdraw from special start and end date terms will be calculated according to the Tuition Refund and Account Adjustment Schedule Special Start and End Date Classes.*
Please refer to our Billing Information for more.
Students who reduce their credit hour load to part-time after the 100% refund shall not be eligible for a refund or account adjustment of amounts that exceed the part-time rate. After the drop period, refunds for tuition and fees shall be made only for full semester withdrawal.
Some students will qualify to accept Direct Loans or Parent Plus Loans in excess of their balance due to the University. Refunds of the excess financial aid usually are available during the third week of the semester. The most efficient manner to receive the refund of excess loan funds is by direct deposit. To sign up for direct deposit, log into MyEdinboro, click the green E-BILL icon and then choose “Refunds” at the top of the page. You will need to enroll in a two-step verification if you haven’t done so already and then click set up new account. Please follow the instructions to set up the new account.
Students who do not sign up for direct deposit will receive a paper check through the U.S. mail at the permanent address listed with the University.
