eBills will be available at the beginning of July and mid-November for the Fall and Spring terms respectively. Payment due dates are found here. Enrollment in a TouchNet Payment Plan, certified financial aid awards, or a combination of any mentioned payments and credits which sufficiently cover your balance is accepted as payment in full. 

Monthly Payments

Delaware Valley University has partnered with a third-party provider (TouchNet) to offer term based monthly payment plans.

Late Payments

Any balance unpaid after the due date will be accessed a late payment fee per term. 


Additionally, a financial hold is placed on any overdue/delinquent student accounts. Financial holds will restrict most business with the university; such as, registration, room assignments, processing official transcripts, and releasing and awarding of diplomas. A financial hold may also result in the loss of future academic registration.
