Billing and Refund Information

The Bursar's Office is located on the first floor of St. Thomas Hall. The cashiers' windows are open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to receive payments and to assist with billing questions.

Financial Obligations

Financial obligations to the University must be paid upon presentation of an invoice or a statement. Students are academically and financially responsible for all courses in which they register; they must take formal action to drop or withdraw from courses or to withdraw completely from the University. Billing errors should be reported immediately to the Bursar's Office.

The University reserves the right to remove from all academic class lists any student who has an unmet financial obligation with the University. Students (graduating and non-graduating) will not be permitted to receive any degree, certificate or transcript of record until their financial obligations have been satisfactorily settled with the University.

Financial Holds

Students with delinquent balances on their accounts are deemed by the Bursar's Office to be on HOLD. Students so designated will not be allowed to register until their financial obligation is settled in the Bursar's Office (570-941-4062). Once the student has satisfied his/her account, the Bursar's Office will release the hold from the on-line computer system, and the student may then register.

*This tuition refund schedule applies to students paying non-flat rate tuition. For students paying flat rate tuition, the above refund schedule applies only if you withdraw from the University. As a flat rate student, your tuition rate is the same between 12 and 18 credits; therefore, if you drop a class and still have 12 or more credits, no refund will be given. If your registration drops below 12 credits, please contact the Bursar's Office for a corrected tuition statement.
