Paying Your Bill

Electronic Bills

Scheduling courses will generate a semester bill.  Paying your semester bill moves your registration from incomplete to complete status.  An e-mail message will be sent to the your official University e-mail account announcing that your eBill is available to view and/or pay via eLion. (Penn State will NOT send you a paper bill. If you have problems with accessing your email or elion, please call the IT Support Center at 570-675-9140 or stop in the Tech Center Room 108 to get help.) You may also need to e-sign your Federal Stafford Loan Master Promissory Note.
To learn more about paying your bill, go to http://www.bursar.psu.edu/instructions.cfm.

Questions about your bill may be directed to the Penn State Wilkes Barre Finance Office in Hayfield 110, at 570-675-9289.
Questions about financial aid may be directed to our student financial aid coordinator in the Murphy Student Services Building at 570-675-9242.

Deferred Payment Plan

Penn State’s Deferred Payment Plan allows you to spread your semester billable charges over three payments. Enrolling in the Deferred Payment Plan is easy. When you view your semester bill, you will be given the option to sign up. Your Semester Bill will list your billable costs (tuition, fees, and room & meal if applicable) and the financial aid that is known at the time the bill is produced. To select Penn State’s Deferred Payment Plan, simply pay the first 1/3 by the due date on the bill. Your payment may be made with a check (mail to Bursar’s Office with payment voucher), credit card, or eCheck. You must also include the $45 deferment fee and payment for any unpaid prior balance with this initial payment. Once signed up, you will receive notification of your subsequent installments in advance of their due dates.

Employer Reimbursement

Penn State Wilkes-Barre offers a delayed tuition plan based on employer reimbursement. If your employer will make partial or total payment of tuition and fees, we will delay expectation of payment for a minimum of three credits.  Please note the following:

  • The Tuition Delay Plan with employer contribution requires that registration for the entire semester course load must be completed one week prior to the first course.

  • Any tuition amount not covered by employer contribution must be paid at the time of registration.

  • Any prior tuition balance must be paid in full before future registrations are allowed.

  • Tuition payment is the student’s responsibility. All payment under the delayed plan is to be submitted by the student.  Payment must be made within (2) weeks after grades are received.*   Payment should be sent directly to the Financial Office at the Wilkes-Barre Campus.

  • Student is responsible for any tuition charge due to drop and/or withdrawal from class(es).  No refunds or tuition forgiveness will be issued unless an official withdrawal is processed through the Registrar’s Office prior to the 1st day of class.  Tuition refunds the 1st day and after will be prorated.

*Late payment registration fee will be assessed if complete payment is not received within a 2-week period.
