Students in good academic standing may petition the department chairperson for permission to carry additional credits beyond that limit. Students who wish to register for 21 or more credits must have a minimum GPA of 2.8 and must obtain approval from their department chairperson and their school Dean.

Upon acceptance, new students must pay a non-refundable $200 (non-residents) or $400 (residents) matriculation fee.

Course challenges are charged at the reduced rate of $354 per credit.

In addition to the fees listed above, additional fees will be charged for the following:

  • Medical insurance: The University offers a medical insurance plan for students, the cost of which is pre-billed to each student's account.

  • Independent study courses.
  • Field trips required for certain courses.
  • British Horse Society exam preparation fees for students in eligible equine majors.
  • Human Anatomy Course Fee

All resident students are required to purchase one of the six resident meal plans. Meal plans are optional for students who live off-campus. All meal plan requests, changes, and cancelations must be requested through the student housing portal by the end of the add/drop period each term. No meal plan additions, cancelations or changes will be permitted after the deadline.

******Students registering for less than 12 credits are considered to be part-time students and are charged $1,069 per credit, plus additional per course fees as applicable. Registration for less than 12 credits may affect the amount of scholarships and other financial aid. Part-time students are not eligible for housing or to receive any merit scholarships awarded through the admission process. For more information on financial aid, contact finaid@delval.edu.

*******Per credit fee for courses offered in conjunction with Podium Education.

In the event of any financial default, the University shall have the right to employ a collection agency and/or any other legal means to collect sums due. Students will be required to pay all collection fees, including legal fees and interest.

Diplomas and official transcripts will not be released until a student has made satisfactory settlement of their student account and, if applicable, unless their federal Perkins loan account is in good standing.

Full time undergraduate students can use the Budget Calculation Worksheet to help determine the amount that will need to be paid to Delaware Valley University for either the term or the academic year based on your major.

  • The enrollment fee is nonrefundable.
  • If you need help with estimating your payment plan amount, please contact the Office of the Bursar at bursar@delval.edu.

When does Touchnet withdraw the money from my account?

The down payment and enrollment fee are automatically withdrawn or charged when you click on the Continue button after you click I agree to the above terms and conditions. Monthly payments are automatically withdrawn or charged on the 15th of each month as detailed in your payment plan agreement. Payment due dates cannot be changed. Please note that if the enrollment fee, down payment, or any subsequent payment is returned for any reason, the payment plan will be terminated. You will have to enroll in a new plan with a new enrollment fee under the term available at that time if any, and you will be charged a $50 returned payment fee by DelVal.

When will the payment show in my bank account?

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.

When is the payment plan available?

We determine the availability of the payment plans. We may choose to close it down during specific times and dates during registration.

What amount should my payment plan be?

The term balance on TouchNet is real-time and shows what you owe after all of your accepted financial aid. If you need assistance, please contact the Office of the Bursar.

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 or 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 next installment due date.

What happens if my payment is returned?

When a payment plan payment is returned for any reason, DelVal will charge a $50 fee to the student account, place a hold, and terminate the payment plan. If the student is registered for a future term, a failed payment plan may also result in the loss of future academic registration.

Terms: Fall 2021 and Spring 2022
