Additional Information

If a Graduate Student in the M.S. Education program student withdraws from a course, refunds are calculated from the date the student notifies the Office of the Registrar in writing. Phone calls, voicemails, failing or ceasing to attend a class is not an official drop or withdrawal and will not result in a tuition refund. Tuition and fees paid for canceled courses are refunded in full. All other refunds, minus a $50 processing fee per course, will be made according to the following schedule:

Terms: G1, G2, G3, G4, G4, G6

For students in our graduate-level programs, DelVal offers the option of deferring payment until 45 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 at www.delval.edu/touchnet
  • 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  • The $25 enrollment fee, is automatically withdrawn when you enroll.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 45th 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.
  • Though the student's account is updated immediately, it may take 1 to 3 business days for the funds to be withdrawn from your bank account or charged to your credit card.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 All payments will be automatically withdrawn/charged on the scheduled due date.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 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  • All payments are automatically withdrawn/charged. The enrollment fee is automatically withdrawn/charged on day of enrollment.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 45th 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 automatic. If your student account balance changes after payment plan enrollment, the payment plan will automatically adjust.
  • 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.
  • 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.
