*rates are subject to change

**Per course fee for registering after deadline, which is seven (7) days prior to the start of the term in which you are registering.

Payment in full is due prior to the first day of the term in which you are registered unless satisfactory financial arrangements are made in advance with the bursar's office. Pending financial aid, enrollment in a payment plan for the correct amount and term(s), and anticipated military benefits are considered satisfactory financial arrangements. If payment in full is not received by the start of the term, and no financial arrangements are approved and in place, then a hold will be placed on your student account and you will not be permitted to register for future terms or receive transcripts until your student account balance is paid in full. Learn about the available payment plans.

Please note that invoices for the Summer II, and G6, and the Fall terms will be available online on July 1.

Information on the tuition refund policy can be found below.

Additional Information

To avoid potential penalties on your student account, you must complete your financial arrangements by the dates listed in the chart for your student type, program of study, and term. If you register for a term after the payment due date, payment is due immediately. There is no grace period.

For students in our graduate-level programs, DelVal offers the option of deferring payment until 30 days after the end of the term. The deferred payment plan is the option if you wish to avoid the placement of a hold on your student account. Students who do not enroll in a deferred payment plan for the term(s) in which their courses are scheduled must pay in full or obtain federal or private loans by the start of the term.

DelVal works with TouchNet Information Systems, Inc.

  • Easy online enrollment
  • Automatic withdrawals/charges with  automatic bank payment (ACH), checking, savings account or a credit card
  • No interest
  • The $25 enrollment fee, is automatically withdrawn when you enroll.
  • Payment is initiated on the 30th day after the end of the term for the plan in which you enroll.
  • Please note that the you must enroll in the plan for the term in which you are registered to take courses. Enrollment in a deferred payment plan for a term in which you are not registered will result in the plan being terminated and the forfeiture of the enrollment fee. If you need help, please contact the Office of the Bursar at bursar@delval.edu or 215.489.2376.
  • Though the student's account is updated immediately, it may take 1 to 3 business days for the funds to be withdrawn from your bank account or charged to your credit card. You should still make sure the funds are in the account on the due date.
What are the terms and conditions?

Below are some important details about DelVal's payment plans.

  • Payment dates cannot be changed. All payments will be automatically withdrawn/charged on the scheduled due date. Please note that a delay in reimbursement from a third-party such as an employer will not result in the an extension of the payment due date.
  • All payments are automatically withdrawn/charged. The enrollment fee is automatically withdrawn/charged on day of enrollment. The scheduled deferred payment is automatically withdrawn/charged on the specified due date. The payment cannot be extended past the 30th day after the end of the term for any reason.
  • Enter payment method information accurately. If your payment cannot be processed, your payment plan will be terminated and a $50 returned payment fee will be charged to your student account.
  • To receive payment plan notifications at a non-DelVal email address, set yourself up as an Authorized User with your preferred email address and use your Authorized User credentials to enroll in the payment plan. Installment reminder emails are sent only to the user whose credentials are used to enroll in the plan. The Authorized User setup link is on the landing page after you log in to TouchNet.
  • Payment plan adjustments are not automatic. If your student account balance changes after payment plan enrollment, the payment plan will not automatically adjust. To adjust future payment amounts, the student must email bursar@delval.edu from the student’s DelVal address at least four (4) business days before the next scheduled payment.
  • What amount should my payment plan be?
    The payment plan needs to cover all of your tuition and fees for the term. Contact the Office of the Bursar for assistance.
  • Why isn't my payment or ADD/DROP reflected in my balance?
    The plan will not automatically adjust to changes in financial aid, outside payments, or any additional activity on your account. You should review your agreement balance and compare it to your monthly tuition statement to determine whether your plan balance needs to be increased to decreased. To increase or decrease payments, the student must email the Office of the Bursar at bursar@delval.edu from his or her DelVal email address at least 4 business days prior to the payment due date.
  • When can I enroll?
    Enrollment dates and payment dates are individual to each term. Please see the information below. When enrolling in a plan, it is important to choose the correct term and plan. If you enroll in a term in which you are not registered, the plan will be canceled and the enrollment fee will not be refunded.
